Service and food were both excellent. Great tomato bisque soup. The burgers are nice and juicy and have some substance. The chipotle aioli with the burger is very tasty. Not ridiculously expensive either for Vail.

We went during happy hour and shared the chicken nachos. Enough for a meal for three to four people. Good drink specials. I would definitely go back. Waiter was also very nice.

The food is amazing and the owner/bartender is fantastic. We eat here every time we are in Vail. The wings are the best!

We dropped by for lunch and the chicken noddle soup was the best. I also recommend the pulled pork sandwich which comes with baked beans and fries. Our waiter, Hunter, is the best. You can do no better for lunch in Vail.More
