As with most places, the options are limited but there are a few more here than at other restaurants and the ones we had were very good. My partner had the spinach and mushroom enchiladas; I had the quinoa/kale veggie burger with arugula side salad....More

Great restaurant for families, couples, or groups. We have hosted a small dinner business party here two years in a row. Everyone enjoys the food, and service - and the location & views are spectacular!

Took the kids here on a beautiful snowy day and the views of the Creek were amazing. Food was great including the clam chowder, BLT and fries. Very good value for a Vail restaurant and great location. Good service and nice atmosphere

We stopped in for a little apres ski snack. The appies (appetizers) were great, so were the drinks and service. It helped that we were sitting outside, in the sun and next to the Gore Creek.
