A park ranger dropped us off here after coming off of Mt. Evans (that's another story!). We were in need of some warmth and food. We settled right into the bar and the incredibly friendly lady working there (I forgot her name) hooked us right...More

This place is very cute and the food was good. The peach pie was excellent. My side salad wasn’t anything special or great but that’s ok. The only negative was that there were quite a few flies inside.

A great find, nice stop before you go up the mountain. Good authentic food. Chicken pot pie my wife had was delicious, along with the Bison stew the rest of us had was also good. Nice souvenir shop.

I was pleasantly surprised by the good quality and friendly service at this mountain restaurant. We sat and watched the hummingbirds while the endless bikers went by. The salads were fresh, the soup was tasty, the sandwiches were very good. The PB chocolate cream pie...More

Wonderful location, and food is good but a bit pricey for what you get. There is a big gift shop there for visitors. Lots of hiking trails in the area and a campground across the street. Entrance to Mt Evans is just up the road!
