We walked in without a booking and were seated immediately. Delicious meal - I ate healthy and my husband didn’t. We both enjoyed our dinner and the conversation with the couple at the next table. Price very reasonable for meals and drinks.

Excellent food with good variety of menu options. The chicken tortilla soup was great and the service was very good. This place is popular with the locals and they are very friendly to tourists!

We sat outside and it was a nice relaxed atmosphere. I tried the Tequila lime chicken burger, which was something different but very good. OK prices for a restaurant placed like this

Loved the whisky selection and beers. Great bartender led me down the right path of local whisky and beer. Food was also very good.

A short and easy walk from most hotels, including ours. Typical tavern fare in an historic building. Good Service from the friendly staff, and food was good enough that we returned the next day. So we had a dinner and a lunch.

In Aspen for a family wedding and decided to go out to dinner our last night in town. We showed up at the restaurant at about 5:30 with......24 people! The hostess was wonderful and immediately started having tables moved around to accommodate all of us!...More

Incredible whiskey selection, good drinks and great service. Fun atmosphere a bit noisy. Supposed to be the oldest bar in Aspen? Doesn’t look like it which is a good thing. Great playlist. Well worth a visit!

I'm not sure if they have gluten free choices. You would need to check their menu.
