    Looking for a great way to get to and from the Red Lion and anywhere else? Check out Uber for a safe and friendly experience. Your first ride (up to a $20 fare) is free.

    Great live music perfect for après! The nachos are good but huge! A small one can easily feed 4 people. They put nacho cheese and melted cheese inside and on top by layer. Brilliant!

    Awesome bartenders! The most affordable thing on the menu is the bowl of green chii and it's amazing (and I'm a green chili snob). Great apres ski meal.

    Double down on the onion ring tip! Never had them that lightly battered - delish! Wash them down w a Fat Tire (or 3). Red chili is the best in Vail :-)

    Get the red chili. If you don't want that, get the green chili. If you don't want that, you're silly.

    Red chili is awesome, onion rings too, but I never see the cougars in the sparkly boots everyone talks about....

    BBQ platter was great but the (very basic) drinks were absurdly expensive and our service was weak. They were busy, but there was a planned event that could have/should have been planned for.
