In Denver for a conference so drive to Vail to sightsee and have dinner. We ate outside, had a wonderful waiter and a terrific meal. The tater tots, as someone else said, were terrific. Dinner was delicious and not outrageously expensive.

Stopped in for lunch before we headed up the mountain and had a great lunch. Huge portions so we were able to share a few items. Sat on the patio right along the road on a gorgeous fall day.

Had lunch here a couple of times during our last stay in Vail. Decent food but great wings. Get them with the sauce on the side as they stay crispy. Had them as lunch with a cold local brew.

We ate here 2x (once for lunch and once for dinner) while staying at Sonnenlap Resort. The food was excellent both times. We especially loved the pulled pork and baked beans. And the staff was very friendly. We would definitely come again.

We enjoyed lunch here with 5-star burgers and excellent service. We had the buffalo burger and the Angus burger, which were very generous and flavorful. Our server was very attentive as well.
