It was a small diversion for us, but well worth it. It's just a funky place that also serves decent food.

Truly a hole in the wall, but one with hearty good food, great beer, and lots of history. Take cash, no credit cards. Be patient and prepared to wait, just enjoy the experience.

On a recent first visit to Aspen, we rode bikes down the Rio Grande bike trail to visit Woody Creek Tavern for lunch. The place was hopping, and we were served promptly and courteously. The decor and vibe of this place is singular and fun. The food is fine, but I think you really enjoy the place for its great... More

Used to go to Woody Creek in the late 80's. Maybe we shoulda ordered burgers, because they used to be decent here. The nachos and Buffalo chicken wings were pretty yuk, and the ice d tea tasted instant. The ambiance is still worth the trip, just get something cheap to eat.

We were in Aspen because of my love of the late great HST. I hate aspen. I think it has become everything HST was against. But we were there, and so we went and drank wild turkey to the good doctors memory. Then we got called out as Hunter Hunters, but we didn't mind. It was Labor Day weekend and... More

Feeling like going to a place that you just feel good and everybody knows your name? Go to Woody Creek Tavern. Well maybe everybody won't know your name unless you go often! This locals hangout is a second home to locals and stars as well. Great food, relaxing atmosphere, and that Jimmy Buffet "Relax" feature.

My husband has gone to the Woody Creek Tavern many times when he was on fishing trips and always described it as a great biker bar. Well, it is still a biker bar, but since he was last here, there are a lot more bikes of the Schwinn variety than the Harley variety. Located a few miles off Rt 82... More

Hunter S Thompson would rollover in his grave if he knew that his old haunt had turned into such a god awful tourist trap. Avoid unless you like seeing far too many people dressed in expensive bicycling outfits eating overpriced mediocre food.

I stopped here for drinks after riding the Rio Grande Trail from Aspen. The waitress seemed unfriendly and made an issue out of the fact I wanted to keep an eye on my bike that was parked in the front, as if I was personally insulting her…. I considered getting an appetizer as she did not seem happy I was... More

We stopped here after riding 8 miles from Aspen. Quirky atmosphere, nice servers, cold beer. The food was good and they had daily.local specials that were popular.
