No longer the old and tired Whales Tail. As much as I liked the old institution the new STAG is a welcoming and comfortable saloon. Food is real good and the atmosphere is perfect. Come on in.

We were optimistic with the new management and were shown a menu at lunch, that included kids pizza. Upon arrival for our 6:30 pm reservation, the restaurant was very loud and smokers were gathered directly outside the front door - most unpleasant when seated at...More

A town landmark for many years, the Whales Tail has been reinvented by new owners and is now the Blue Stag.

We were very hopeful that with a new name and management, this would be a great place to go to. No pizza, as oven has not been installed and our server did not know when it would be. Three of us ordered the elk stroganoff...More

Awesome atmosphere but the food is average at best. Sounds like new ownership rehabbed the interior. They did an awesome job! Now get the food right and this place will be a sure thing.

New menu, new owners, and the inside has been completely gutted and re-done. It's amazing food--Colorado Game-inspired. Try the Elk Stroganoff, stuffed duck, or Chili Colorado. They get their meats local, grass-fed and happy. The Salmon is flown in fresh from Alaska. The beer selection...More

One advantage of this place is that when they tell you that there is a 1/2 hour wait for a table, you can take a drink from the bar and sit outside by the fire chatting - really pleasant. Plenty of atmosphere and good American...More
