We had been told about this place by my brother, he warned us it was a bit out of the way but worth a stop. We arrived too early for dinner, however Geri the bartender was very attentive and let us have a glass of wine out on the deck surrounded by the beauty of the mountains while she prepared... More

Beuautifully located in valley surrounded by stream and mountains. Rustic interior and gracious service with well prepared game, beef, trout and lamb. Our visit was in summer so out door deck was great for cocktails. High prices help pay for setting and service.

We went to the Ashcroft ghost town and went there for lunch. We had a wonderful lunch with great service. The atmosphere was wonderful and the restaurant is beautiful.

Oh, what a wonderful lunch! They had a salmon special, which we did not want, but it was offered as a substitute on the Ruby Red Trout entrée. Three of us ordered it and it was to die for! Description of our entrée: Medium (or medium rare if you prefer) salmon, filet lemon herb pan roasted, cauliflower purée, wild mushroom... More

Very average with aspirations of being a fine dining experience. Better dining experiences in Aspen. However, it is a beautiful location.

We had lunch recently here and all were amazed by the food--the best we have had on this vacation. While very expensive, we all thought it worth the money. We had trout rolls, elk brats ($16) and the best grilled cheese sandwich ($14) we have ever had. We also saw the patty melt topped with a fried egg ($28) which... More

My wife and I had and another couple had another special evening here last night. We have had numerous meals here over the years but this was the first visit for the couple who joined us. The setting, as always, was spectacular. Our servers were outstanding and the food was superb. We enjoyed the New York strip and Buffalo steak.... More

On a whim we stopped here for an unscheduled lunch in the summer. We had paid a visit in the winter for a special dinner and were still paying for it 6 months later. But lunch in the summer is a different story altogether. We drove right up to the restaurant, sat on the patio and could enjoy the extraordinary... More

Since the Pine Creek Cookhouse burned down and was rebuilt, it has not been the same. The food is of poor quality, the service has suffered terribly, and the atmosphere is sometimes chaotic. What used to be a must do experience is now better avoided.
