The Historic Ute Inn is a Woodland Park, Colorado institution that has survived WWII, the loss of the railroad, the death of the Paradise Ranch and the deceptive city government that runs Woodland Park at this time.

In his great novel Blue Highways the American author William Least Heat Moon would characterize and judge small town and back road restaurants by the number of calendars they had hanging on the wall.

two sides to this coin, the dining room and the bar. I always go to the dining room but bar is fun and popular by the looks of it. Food is very good. Chicken fried steak, fish and chips, pulled pork, burgers, are all winners. Wait staff very friendly and attentive. Good value of the meal

We frequent this location often because of the great food and service. Added bonus is when the Cari Dell Trio is playing. Such a good time with family and friends in the historic Ute Inn! Highly recommend a visit for good food and drinks!

Great historic eating establishment in scenic Woodland Park. Good size menu with veggie options, good service and good prices. Slightly longer wait than chain restaurants but worth it for homemade food.

This is a local hang out for a smallish mountain community and I could not be more pleased with my experiences there. Most recently I was impressed by the daily specials, the overall value of what I paid compared to what I received as well as the overwhelming friendliness of the staff. No complaints. Will absolutely be back.

Stopped in for a late lunch. The restaurant was pretty busy and they were definitely under staffed. The overall service was really good even though they were busy and the food was really good.
