This place is a hidden secret! Happy hour is amazing and the crack fries are OUTSTANDING! Must go to check it out and enjoy some sushi and drinks!

I ate at the bar. Chris, the bartender, was very attentive and made eating alone possible. The sushi was excellent. I will be back!

sounds like an 'over-the-top' title, but it's true. Somehow they've figured out how to get the freshest of fish to this little mountain town club. I call it a club because once you walk down the stairs into the restaurant you'll think you're in a...More

Had one of the best salads there. It was soooo fresh! Sushi was also very fresh! The Beef and Chicken Kabobs were perfect and you can sit out on the patio otherwise you go down stairs into a very dark place...

Lobar has the best sushi and the atmosphere is nothing like what you'd expect in a small Colorado town which makes it really fun!

It's hard to find sushi and kid friendly anywhere. But, like most of CB, things are kid friendly. Lobar was as well. We went around 6 pm. Sat on the couches. It was great. They had some cartoons playing and the staff was very friendly....More

Lobar offers some unique sushi rolls - like a Mexican flavored one (taco seasoning, cilantro, and fish) and a coconut shrimp. They don't have a lot of "traditional" sushi but if you're up for some adventure, this place is perfect. And you've got to try...More

Pricey food and drinks, but really good tasting all around, definitely recommend eating here. The "Crack Fries" are amazing.

LOBAR got started in 2004 under the guise of being Crested Butte’s only night club, but the ruse only lasted 8 days when we added Sushi to our menu and things really took off. We’re renowned for serving great sushi, and for throwing better parties.Our restaurant is inspired by creative Japanese cuisine, and pop art from the 50′s. You’ll find the video monitors around the restaurant projecting old Godzilla movies, snowboard videos, and an occasional kids cartoon. But its not visual entertainment only, as our sound system playing anything from Chicago Blues, to contemporary drum and bass, and you’re sure to find hip-hop on the weekends.This season be sure to stop by for our happy hour from 5pm – 6pm Mon – Fri. Our happy hour menu is full of excellent selections from our regular menu, and if you find a seat at the sushi bar the chef may throw in something even better.Were open 10 months a year. We like to close on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and the whole month of April, when the staff ( along with most of crested butte ) splits for a well deserved holiday.Stop by and check us out. – Kyleena
