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.

We were fortunate to have dinner at Pine Creek Cookhouse on Thanksgiving night, 2013. They opened early for dinner due to the amount of snowfall that allowed the horse drawn sleighs to operate. Set deep in the mountains, the restaurant is a beautiful log cabin building, with large windows that provide breathtaking views of the mountains. We journeyed there on... More

This is one of the most romantic times I have had with my wife - and My kids remember this and look forward to this every year. Sure, I'm a food snob. However, the ELK was fantastic. The cheese / meat plate was great, the wine I ordered was reasonable (believe it or not) and good. The staff could not... More

Have been to this restaurant several times. I love it and always enjoy the whole experience. My favorite time to go is during the day so we can soak in the blessing of that view! We went up by horse drawn sleigh once and then walked back down the snow closed road to our car. That was a great meal,... More
