Danky breakfast

I don't eat meat so I can't comment on the ribs/meat, but the breakfast at hickhouse...... Is definitely something to remember.

We ski at Snowmass every year and one night we ALWAYS go to Hickory House for ribs! The atmosphere is terrific and the menu is fun and the food is very good for a restaurant that caters to not only regulars and tourists. The staff is really fun! One tip: get there when it opens because by 6 or 7pm... More

Fun low-key roadhouse joint with large portions for hearty appetites ... We were part of large group (50) and the wait staff was great getting food and drinks for all. Plenty to eat, just 'ask' and they brought more of anything you liked. Ribs, brisket and chicken were great
