The food recommendation of the special was spot on. Bison burger with sweet potato fries was very tasty and filling. Had a good selection of draft beers but wish more local brews were available.More

Ask for both the bar menu and the regular menu. Both are great. Service was excellent. Atmosphere great. No wait to get in on a Friday night, when several nearby were packed with long waits. For Aspen, prices seemed fine and value good.More
