We really like the gold Hill for two reasons: The food is quite good, and the building is a throwback to olden days, making it a great place to take visitors. The menu selection is pretty broad, both basic meat & fish dishes. The dessert is first rate. The prices are very reasonable considering... read more

This is the kind of place that will have you telling stories about "my most memorable dining experience" for the rest of your life! Set in an old mining town in an 150 year old log structure, we were swept back in time. The 3200 foot ascent on the paved and gravel road led to a treasure. Food was delicious... More

Wow!! What a great six course meal! There is a three course option. Vegetables are not the usual string beans or broccoli. Every course is great.

One of our few upscale spot in the mountain area. Good food, great service. Not open all year round (Closes for a bit before Christmas and opens Spring).

Dined at Gold Hill on a recent Saturday night. We had a reservation at 7:30 pm. We arrived early so that we could get there in time to see the spectacular views. What a drive! If you are at all uncomfortable driving mountainous roads (dirt) with many switchbacks, this is not the place for you! What a reward if you... More

The food, the ambience, even the drive up to Gold Hill are all five star experiences. When people talk about authentic Colorado this place should be put on the top of the list. Family run for over 52 years there’s a lot of pride in everything that goes into your experience here. Historic yet humble, rustic yet comfortable and charming,... More

We attended a wedding here and it was fantastic. Outside ceremony, moving inside for appetizers, dinner, and dancing. Staff was great, food was excellent. This place just exudes charm. My only complaint is that it is a little dark inside. I would hate to add many more lights to ruin the atmosphere but we could hardly see the cake table.... More
