Good food, sometimes sarcastic staff.

Stopped in here after bringing my family to Ashcroft. Called the day before and told them we would stop in, but did not know what time. Upon entering the restaurant they asked for the party name, I told them we did not make any reservation and was sarcastically told "Oh, we just love surprises... read more

If you are in the Aspen area, DO take a drive up to Pine Creek Cookhouse; the drive is spectacular and the restaurant is memorable. Gigantic log construction with patios and fireplaces. Majestic views of mtns, meadows and forests. Creative menu a little of the pricey side but definitely worth the experiences. Food was delicious!

Our group of eleven people came after visiting the nearby ghost town for a delicious lunch in a gorgeous setting. We all were pleased with our choices from the eclectic menu. The service was excellent even though the restaurant was full. It was our favorite dining event during the four days in the area.

I attended a large group dinner here. The beautiful views, cozy ambience, excellent service and delicious food combined to make an exceptional evening. The buffalo tenderloin is highly recommended. The first course Cookhouse salad was also very good. Would love to return in winter and experience the hike or sleigh ride in.

We had a picture perfect day to dine outdoors and take in the amazing beauty that surrounded us. I was going to order the trout as it was less expensive, but our friendly waiter suggested that they were known for their salmon, so I decided to go for it. I am so glad I did! It was amazing...the best I... More

We have been here many times winter and summer. Always a treat. Expensive. Game meat is a feature; the buffalo tenderloin was exceptional even though I was wary of it. Nice views. A unique and memorable meal and location

when family is in town, we always try to get up to Pine Creek at Ashcroft. This event was for a wedding anniversary; K.C. and Chris knocked it out of the park once again as they helped us set up a memorable afternoon in that beautiful setting with terrific food, and excellent service. Enjoying a nice walk from the Ashcroft... More

I've been visiting the Pine Creek Cook House at least once a year for the past 30 years. The Alpine setting is beautiful, as is the rusic log facility. The menu is good, as is the food. The wait staff was totally disorganized even though the restaurant wasn't crowded.. We weren't in a hurry, but lunch took an hour and... More

John W, Owner at Pine Creek Cookhouse, responded to this review

As visitors know, Aspen has recently experienced an early spring. The weather and snow conditions this year resulted in our having to close our mountain restaurant early for the season. The horse drawn sleigh ride and the ski/snow shoe tour are the only way to reach our restaurant in the winter and we could not risk injury to the horses... More
