Reasonable food at reasonable prices. It is invariably noisy so not the ideal place for a quiet meal.

Red Lion is one of the original places from Vail's early days. Popular after ski hangout. Good service and good hearty food. Accommodating to the special diet needs kids have including a gluten free menu. Won't break the budget like most Vail restaurants.
