My husband and I were headed into Rocky Mtn National Park to snowshoe and decided to get a quick lunch and a beer. The view from our table were amazing, and that was it. We both ordered the fish and chips, so-so. Seemed kind of dirty too. Skip this place, better places in town. (Sagebrush across the street)

We've been here a couple times and are never disappointed. Staff is friendly and courteous and the food is good. The margaritas are also good. All in all a nice place to stop by when walking the boardwalk in Grand Lake.

Went to this restaurant on September 3rd and ate an enchilada with ground beef. Food was pretty good. Woke up the next day and had gotten sick. I was in the bathroom for three hours every morning for over a week and I did not regulate for 3 more. Granted I have some stomach issues and originally thought it was... More

We visited Grand Lake on our travels to Vail and stopped for the night. The hotel suggested Pancho & Leftys for authentic Mexican food. The setting was nice, sat on their deck overlooking the water, but the food was average at best. Enjoyable and fairly priced for a local pub, but nothing special.

This place is just what the pictures show. Its a bar that serves Mexican food in a little town that gets sleepy in the winter. Wait staff has its good day and its bad days. Kind of depends on the crowed and if they are shorthanded. So I would say if your on that side of the street and want... More

Stopped for lunch. Sat out on the back patio facing the lake. I had the chicken quesadilla and my lunch guest had the ground beef burrito. Both were very good. Nice service and atmosphere. Highly recommend.

Not my favorite place in town but it's not bad either. If your here for an extended stay and get tired of the other restaurants in town this is a nice alternative. Good view of the lake and nice service. It's for sale so I hope someone comes in a takes advantage of such a great location to upgrade the... More

We stopped here for drinks and was a bit disappointed at the lack of cleanliness. Tables had not been bussed or cleaned and the service was not very good. Place is for sale, so maybe that's part of the reason. Otherwise the decor was interesting and had a great location right off the lake. Chips and guac appetizer was average... More

I would stay away from this place. Food was okay, service so-so, and I would definitely check you receipt as they steal money from you by writing in their own gratuity after it was already included in the bill. Never had that happen before.
