We enjoyed our dinner at 221. Our favorite part was a bartender named Jeremy. We’d had a long drive into town and went in to sit at the bar until a table was ready. Jeremy entertained us with stories and offered great drink suggestions that...More

After a full day of skiing decided to treat ourselves to a nice meal in downtown Telluride. Loved this venue! Old home converted to restaurant. Lots of colorful artwork on the walls. Intimate and cozy. Extensive, creative menu. Friendly staff.

Very nice people. Good food. Small— so get a reservation in advance. We had a few hiccups last night. Wrong appetizer and redo wasn’t correct either. My salad was just average.

Met up with friends to eat and drink after skiing. It’s such a fun atmosphere, with a large bar and tons of TVs to watch games. We ended up hanging out all afternoon. Definitely a great place to go because the prices are extremely reasonable!

Sorry I didn't see this sooner. You will have to directly call the restaurant. They do take parties of six but they control when.
