We love dining at the Thistle. Our experience was wonderful.
Great food and service. Loved the pretzel! However I nearly did a face plant tripping over that black stand that has the protection sheet on it. The window blocked my fall. I bruised my leg when I fell. The person who seats you should point that out to you. She had one of of seated on the bench and one of us in the chair opposite. I moved to sit next to my husband in the bench and tripped getting back there. Our breakfast the next morning again was excellent food and service.
Great for families!
It was a little on the expensive side but that’s expected because of it being at a resort. Overall, everything was amazing and I will definitely be back. Our waitress, Kellie, was also amazing!
It was a wonderful dining experience. I was a bit disappointed in the shepherds pie. Beef was not very tender and sauce looked / tasted more like beef bouquet coloring rather than a deep rich flavorful sauce developed with seasoning and a long period of roasting. It was Ok, but I expected exceptional for this pub.
Always delicious. I believe our waiter’s name was Dan and he is always great.
Everything was great!!
Superb dining experience. Appreciate the attentive but not over-bearing service. The food was cooked perfectly and the presentation was excellent.
We were impressed that proper precautions were in place. We have had both COVID vaccines, so we felt more relaxed, but it’s important for those who have not been vaccinated, to see that they were following the required guidelines. We would not hesitate to eat there again as the food was delicious! We would recommend it to our friends, as well.
Ambiance, food and service, everything was great!
This dinner was a good experience. The food was excellent this time, much better then the last two times (fall 2020, and winter 2020). Waitress was good and read signal well. Like need more time, etc.
Had a wonderful dining experience March 2021. Great service, great food, great atmosphere, great adherence to social distancing. Only negative was the Raspberry coulie on chocolate tarte had too much vinegar. All 4 dinners we ordered were delicious and professionally prepared. Even my vegan teen daughter was impressed. Great experience!!
Felt safe with plastic dividers, even though not beautiful ambiance.
Server and staff are excellent as this is our go to place for many years - like since it opened!
Love the restaurant!
Great service, food delicious. Had dinner and breakfast. Thanks for being open
Excellent service Very accommodating Delicious food Family friendly High recommend
All 10’s / great service & food
Lunch specials always unique and excellent. Service is the best.
Food was great and Mary our waitress was amazing. Did a great job with new protocols and keeping everyone distanced.
Everything was great— delicious food, great service
I like Scottish music but not high energy music through our entire visit there.
Lovely Easter weekend evening!
The prices are high, but given that its at a ski resort, the ambience is great, and the food is excellent, you will not feel cheated.
We had both breakfast and dinner at the Thistle. Breakfast was fine - nothing fancy but it was nice to be able to sit down and have a hearty meal before hitting the slopes. Dinner was ok. We got the szechuan rice with shrimp and it was not good. We should've known better than to try Asian food at a Scottish themed restaurant in Northern MI but as a pescatarian, I was looking for something different than the normal salmon and whitefish. The service was great - very friendly and very accommodating. We would definitely go back.
Hostess a bit stand-offish; wait staff AWESOME. Whitefish very disappointing, small portion, way too mush-like.
Great lunch at The Thistle during ski weekend at Crystal Mountain. Excellent Covid precautions. Great service, food and drink!
We received a warm welcome, good, pleasant service, and Felton pressure as we ate dessert and hatted afterwards. Thank you. Mary Clifton and four more.
The food was great. Of no fault of the restaurant, the atmosphere was a bit strange because of covid. I'm Scottish and loved the theme and music. Portion size was a bit small for the price, would have liked about a 1/2 cup more brussels sprouts. Filet was amazing and cooked perfectly medium. The whipped potatoes were amazing. Old fashioned was sweet but carried the whisky which was nice. Thank you.
Thistle Pub is a quality eatery at Crystal Mountain Resort. The Bavarian Pretzel appetizer was excellent! My chopped salad was fresh with enough cheese crumbles and other veggies to set off the homemade dressing. My sister's Chicken entree with Dauphinoise potatoes and fresh green beans and my son's Thistle burger and fries were hearty portions featuring local food sources. The only issue was slow service--not a major detractor once we got our appetizer order in. The server was skilled at her job overall, we enjoyed her service.
glad you are open. still do not like all the plastic separators.
Food was great but we waited 15 minutes for service after being seated. I had to ask someone why we had not been helped yet and then a waitress came to help the table.
Great place COVID restrictions destroyed the Ambiance from what used to be a great atmosphere is now a plastic covered cold experience
