Now in its 49th winter season, the Shallow Shaft Restaurant is Little Cottonwood Canyon's only independent, casual fine dining restaurant. Overlooking the heart of the Wasatch Range and Alta Ski Resort, our cozy dining room, award winning dinner menu, and eclectic wine list offer the perfect end to your day on the slopes. Our exceptional wait staff is known throughout the canyon for their food and wine knowledge and friendly approach.
New for this season, we are thrilled to welcome Executive Chef Brandon Mowbray to our team! Brandon's experience and dedication to locally sourced, regional cuisine is a perfect fit for our high altitude setting. Previously at the helm of some of Salt Lake City's finest restaurants, including Martine Café, Bambara at the Hotel Monaco, Fresco Italian Restaurant, and Ghidotti's Classic Italian Restaurant, Brandon brings a refreshing perspective and new menu for your enjoyment!
Recognized in 2011 and 2015 by Salt Lake Magazine as "Utah's Best Wine List", we are proud to offer unique wines from throughout the world. Wine Coordinator PeriErmidis is eager to pair the perfect wine with your meal.
