Came to Crested Butte for our spring break vacation. Went to The Eldo and purchased advanced wrist bands for the music they were having that night. Was looking forward to a fun night in Crested Butte. One in our party was accused by the owner/manager of reproducing the $5 wrist band that their bartender had sold to me hours earlier.... More

They have 5 beers... Pump Ken porter a stout, IPA, a golden ale and an iPA @ 9.4abv. Ambiance is crap at best... The only locally produced beer and its a seedy nightclub. Happy trails must be the kitchen... Its pub grub at best... Might be good, but no steak dinners here

We went for dinner on Saturday night around 730 and it was not very crowded. It is an easy shuttle ride down from the mountain too. Unfortunately they only had 4 beers because they had a big run over the holiday and most of their supply had run out. On the positive, their burgers were delicious. We had good service... More

Recently ate dinner and drank a few beers at Eldo. It's a great hole-in-the-wall style bar with very good food and beer. Definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a low key place to unwind after a day of skiing.

Hey, absolutely grab a bite here. I had an ale and it was good, though I really went for the food after a long day & hike this place hit the spot. Relaxed vibe, unpretentious, (which is a must especially in a ski town), and the grilled chicken with roasted red pepper sandwich was awesome. Big side of black beans... More

This place could use some competition in the Crested Butte area. There are so many great breweries in CO and this isn't really one of them. Beers listed on the sign outside, were not available, we were told this was due to a festival the previous weekend. Seems there was time to change the chalkboard in a week as to... More

I would say this is in the dive bar category. As a genre , not a problem. Beer and bar good, you are on your own for service if you sit outdoors on the upper deck. Burgers are damn good. Worth the trip. Back of the house loves a lot of onions on the salad so get them on the... More

Burgers are very flavorful! Grab one when the heavy set dude is working the kitchen, unfortunately it's only once a week. While the burgers are great they aren't very large so it's hard to justify spending 10 bucks per. Beers are very good as well and they have 5 of their own. Generally speaking I was very pleased. Except the... More
