We had a great meal at this restaurant and not too expensive thanks to a Restaurant.com gift cert. We had glasses of wine/beer and a burger and a salad which were both very tasty. Our waitress was fun and helpful and we would definitely go back for their wine tasting evening which we missed while there, but would love to... More

We were a little surprised when we looked at the menu and it didn't seem to match what we read online. Nonetheless we stayed and had a great meal. The chef accommodated my need for gluten free food. Sitting at the booth was a bit of a challenge. I'm not sure how really big people would fit. We had a... More

One of the best restaurants in Crested Butte. The ambiance is one of the best in town. You can have an excellent meal that is very reasonably priced or one that is high end. We had both. Also, a great drink menu. We highly recommend this restaurant.

We missed this on our first trip to CB but got pulled in by the menu and specifically the meals for $20 and under. The staff was friendly and the chef was willing to make changes to the price fixed menu, an A+ before I even ordered. I had a perfectly cooked steak with mustard carrots and shoestring potatoes. The... More

Its the off season, so its tough to find one of the good restaurants in town open. But I'm up here doing some remodeling on a condo, and I reward myself with a good meal at night. I've been in town before back in July with friends when we came in here, and I decided to come back tonight. I... More

This was perhaps our third time at West End under the present ownership, and it was a less successful experience than before. The West End is a pleasant place but my soup was saltier than anything else I have ever tasted, and the calamari were undercooked. We drank a "5680" Colorado wine, quite good and at $30 only slightly overpriced.

Ate lunch there twice over long holiday weekend. Very nice outdoor front and back patio. Food is good but the Bloody Mary is disappointing and tasteless. Service is above average.

We had lunch on the patio in July. The food was good, we had fish and chips and a burger. The staff was good and the atmosphere was enjoyable. We had good service from the staff. I would recommend that you try this spot.

We had the crab cakes for an appetizer, I had the buffalo rib eye and my wife had the fried chicken and waffles. Everything was delicious. The fried chicken was by far the best fried chicken we had ever had. The owner said it was his Mothers recipe and it puts all other fried chicken to shame. Ofcourse the buffalo... More

Higher end bar food that was delicious. We're sorry we missed the wine tasting, but I believe it's every Tuesday night from 5 or 5:30 so check into that if you're there on a Tuesday as it seemed like a very good deal.
