The Saloon in Minturn, CO, is a tradition. Families have visited for generations and others have met there for the first time. Many have enjoyed their first margaritas and have been hooked on them ever since. The food choices are not what you might expect-...More

Atmosphere is extremely comfortable and friendly. A favorite of locals looking for economically priced food and drinks. Great accommodations if you're looking for Gluten Free.

Thank you for taking the time to send a comment. First of all, I am sorry that the experience was not satisfactory. We were certainly aware that the bike race party would have an impact though it is never one that is completely known in...More

We stopped here mainly because of the location of the outdoor patio right on the water. They come out with chips and salsa, which is nice, but the salsa was not very good. The food was high priced and again, not very good. Try something...More

Great food and drinks with outside seating by the river. What more could you ask for on a sunny summer day. Bring some friends and it perfect place to spend the afternoon. We will be back.

Great margaritas! Historic saloon. Large portions for dinner entrees! French fries are really good! Perfect outdoor seating along the river. We will visit again when in the area.

This is one of the best places to go in the Spring when skiing in Vail. They offer good mexican food and have strong margaritas. Lots of history from Minturn Saloon
