My husband and I had dinner at the Tennessee Pass Cafe on Saturday night, and the food was awesome! I had the spinach salad with warm bacon dressing (YUM!) and the stuffed portobello mushroom, and they were both really good. My husband had the steak and mashed potatoes, which was also really good. We both cleaned our plates. There are... More

We have eaten here a few times. Now we try to stop in every time that we are in Leadville. Since we are always there for lunch I recommend the beef or bison burgers. The french fries are delicious. Today I tried the nachos and discovered that they did not come with salsa but with chopped tomato, lettuce and sliced... More

I live in Leadville. We have very limited options for dining out, especially if you're vegetarian like my husband and me. Tennessee Pass has a few great vegetarian dishes. The veggie burger is really good, and the pretzel bun is tasty! The Brussels sprouts are delicious, and my favorite pizza is the solstice, minus the meat. I want to try... More

We had the buffalo nachos and buffalo philly. Food was great, local beer was great, service was great. The only thing to make it better, would have been not getting sick. And the food wasn't the problem.

We stopped here after snowmobiling. Lots of colorado beers to choose from. Food had a great twist on it to make it unique. Loved it.

The best chicken pot pie I have ever had was in another state - until today. A floating crust on top of large strips of chicken in a creamy sauce including carrots, peas, etc. Very filling for $13.95. More chicken in this pot pie than any other I have ever had! They had about 12 colorado drafts at $5.50. Ther... More

Stopped by after snowmobiling on a recommendation from our guide, and are we glad we did. The food was outstanding. We were a group of 8, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. Shelby was our server and she let us sample their wide variety of beer. Shelby also offered great suggestions on what to eat. Our group ordered... More

We came here on the recommendation of a local artist in Leadville, so we were pretty excited to check it out. And I guess we were immediately deemed not cool enough to wait on because every server in that place ignored us until we finally left. It wasn't overly busy, we're not weird or gross... so not sure what happened?... More

The server immediately informed us that service may be a bit slow because the ordering system was down and they were working manually. That was fine as we weren't in any rush but our order was served quickly. We wanted the Brussels sprouts that we had heard about but they had already sold out by the time we arrived for... More
