    Wonderful experience with three adults and a two year old. Staff was kind and attentive and great in helping get our kiddo’s food out first so everyone stayed happy. Look forward to our next visit.

    My daughter and I split a Caesar salad and we each ordered hamburgers. The hamburgers are fabulous. Truffle tots are nice and crispy and perfectly cooked.

    Great place for a casual dinner. Food and service are good and portions are generous. Burgers are delicious, and brick pressed chicken is very good. Vail prices will set you back over $60pp. Popular place with families and bar scene.

    We arrived 15 minutes earlier and the host asked us to wait at the Hotel bar, we waited until 8pm and our reservation was at 7:30pm, when we went to check with the host, surprise!! She has forgotten about us. Then after we sat we order an appetizer (really good mussels) and a burger at 8pm, the appetizer came right away but the burger took another hour, it was 9pm and we were still in the restaurant waiting for a burger, we left the restaurant without having dinner…overall a really bad experience.

    Chicken wings are excellent. Truffle tots were ok. The burgers are their namesake. Can’t go wrong. Ribs, pasta, pizza, all good. The mango sorbet was like eating fresh mango. Delicious. If you are craving chicken wings, come here.

    Our meals consisted of the fajitas which were floating in too much oil, the ribs which had an ok sauce but were cold, the green beans which were cold and the burger which was good. Very expensive for ok, cold food.

    I was excited about going here when I booked the reservation, but the food and the ambiance was just not to the level that I expected. Nothing terrible with the food, but comparable to what you can get at an Applebees. I wish the food would have been more tasty and the place would have had more character.

    We arrived early and went to the Sonnenalp lounge, had a drink and listened to live music. When our table was ready, we found it easy to talk around the table without yelling. The staff bent over backwards to make our time spent comfortable and all the food choices pleased each sitting at the table. My Brussels spouts side and char main plate were fantastic. We come here every time we’re in Vail.
