    The outdoor seating was nice and the burger was delicious. On the downside my coffee cup had lipstick on the rim and I found hair in two different dishes that I ordered.

    Really nice staff but incredibly overpriced food. Don't miss the bean dip and bread to start, they were delicious.

    Truffle fries are the go-to item but don't overlook some of the small plates as an alternative.

    Grab a beer at the bar, or have a seat outside. The burger is amazing, and the service is good and fast. Try the onion soup or the seafood tower. Both amazing any time if year.

    Always a top spot for people watching - have an apres-ski cocktail on the patio and relax. One must prepare for an Aspen night out!

    Make sure your food is cooked. Chicken came out raw and they were not quick to remedy.
