Brighton Resort

Brighton Resort

Brighton Ski Resort up Big Cottonwood Canyon is one of my favorites.  My youngest son and I started the year off hitting the slopes.  I of course literally hit the slopes, and often.  I’m not a very good skier.  My son however being a hockey player picked it up right away, and ended up spending most of the day waiting for his old man to either catch his breath or pick his fat carcass off the snow.  Speaking of fat carcasses, Molly Greens open at 11 am up at Brighton is a good spot to catch your regular bar pub fare.  They have pizzas, burgers, wings and drinks and everything in between.

The Molly Burger

The Molly Burger

My son went with the Molly Burger.  He absolutely loved it.  Keep in mind this is coming from a kid who worships cheeseburgers.  He didn’t even let me have a bite.

Snow White Calzone

Snow White Calzone

The Snow White Calzone was interesting.  Each of the Molly Green pizzas can be made into a calzone for just a fraction of the price.  I was suspecting the find just a piece of pizza dough folded over in half with toppings on the inside, but that is not what I got.  Molly Greens calzones are round with a flaky almost crunchy seasoned crust, and they come with dipping sauce.  It was freezing temperatures outside, and I was just starting to feel my toes again, so I was happy.

Molly Greens is on the second level with the bar area and it is 21 and over.  Down on the first floor there is a family dining area for those with kids.  We sat next to a family from Michigan while eating.  I overheard the one adult tell his kids that the chicken wings at Molly Greens were the best wings on planet Earth.  I had already ordered at that point, so I’ll have to depend on my readers to let me know whats up here.

Chips and Queso

Chips and Queso

Finally we ordered some of the chips and salsa and paid the extra $2 for a cup of queso.  Meh.  Nothing special here.  The chips tasted a bit stale like they came out of a huge industrial bag, and the queso was nothing more than some nacho cheese.  The salsa was pretty good and saved this appetizer.

Overall I think Molly Greens serves that niche audience and does just fine.  It wouldn’t survive outside of Brighton as just a standard gastropub, but it doesn’t have to.  At Brighton you have basically 4 options to eat.  Vending machines, bring from home, the cafeteria, and Molly Greens.  Some of the items need a little work, and others are pretty good.  I recall getting the Western Nachos here a few years back and thinking they were pretty decent.  Come for the skiing and snowboarding, and warm up at Molly Greens for a nice break with standard bar fare.
