We ate here twice for lunch during our stay. The food was excellent, along with the service. The soups/chili are delish. We ordered the burger & it was cooked perfectly. Also you can sit by the window & have a beautiful view if the slopes & watching skiers ski. The prices are not bad either for a resort town.

Very good service, good food & drinks, nice atmosphere, close to slopes. Best of all is the chicken pot pie.

We have been coming to this restaurant for 15 years. The food is consistent and awesome. The prices are fair and the pours are generous. This is what all resort restaurants aspire to be. Highly recommend

Server did great job of handling our party of six, making sure we had plenty of food and drink. We enjoyed salads, pizza & sandwiches. No long wait for seating, drinks or food- and that's a thumbs-up in my book.

After not finding service at a fancy restaurant next door, found this place by luck. Very reminiscent of the Apre ski lodges I frequented in the 70's and 80's. Nostalgic to me. Service friendly and fast. Varied menu. Large portions. Great for families. Bar service.

Let me just say if you're looking for some fine dining experience this is not the place. However, if you want a great location smack dab in Mount Crested Butte with a fun atmosphere and pretty decent food then you've found your place. The Reuben was actually pretty good the last time we ate here. We also ordered 2 desserts... More

Gem of a hidden spot. This is my second review because I submitted my last review w an incorrect rating due to inadvertence.

The food was so delicious, we ended up eating most dinners here. Plenty of food, great prices. The restaurant is very nice with different rooms. Our kids ate off the kids menu and were full. The local beer was great. Staff was nice. This restaurant is located right in the ski village.

We went to the Avalanche and shared a hamburger. It was a very good burger so the next night we went again and ordered a 4 topping 16" pizza. Service was marginal even though it was a very slow night. The pizza was very good, but not $30 good. Slightly better than a $10 Pizza Hut.

Lovely evening on the outside porch, nice server but no place for a Chinese Chicken salad. It was just a garden salad with bottle Dressing. No crunchy white noodles, almonds, a little horse radish heat. An anemic stale white roll like a lost hockey puck included. Two such salads $36 plus a tip. Should have checkedTrip Advisor reviews first.

Thank Marsha S
