One of the very best meals that we enjoyed during our two-week Colorado tour. And almost all of the other restaurants received an "A". Your server, Justin, was exceptionally awesome in every way, and really made the experience better. The duck and lamb chops were...More

Cool place, great menu, great service, excellent food and desserts. We were in town for a visit and wandered in for lunch. Good call. I am sad we did not stay in their historic hotel. I would recommend both.

The veranda was a great place to enjoy a meal and visit with other guests. The staff was very nice and the food was delicious. We ate there three evenings and was not disappointed. The menu had a good variety.
