These lists can vary in size but typically offer 90 options or more.

The VUE has more than 290 selections on its wine list from vineyards across the United States.

The eatery features award-winning cuisine from an expert culinary team lead by Executive Chef Nestor Ruiz, creative craft cocktails, extensive wine list and spirit selections, craft beers and friendly service.

In 2019, the VUE underwent a million-dollar renovation and enhancement project. The redesigned VUE Grille and Bar features a rectangle-shaped bar with seating for 30 guests, including 20 inside and 10 outside, and new windows that showcase the incredible golf course and mountain views. The restaurant renovation also included various kitchen improvements, with new equipment and enhancements to help food service efficiency.
