Great location

This place is located right at the lift base area. I stopped in after skiing for a beer and a snack. I was really happy that they had Great Divide Yeti on tap, it's one of my all time favorites. I had the wings, which were very meaty, cooked perfectly and well sauced. The place was pleasantly... read more

The restaurant was very crowded and had a 30 minute waiting time. The clam chowder was very thick and not very good.

This is one of our favorite places in Crested Butte. Excellent service, friendly and attentive staff. Broad selection of offerings... All tasty! Really nice environment! The owners are active and involved. Very consistent, reliable place to settle in and enjoy a meal or watch sports in the many tvs.

My husband and I went almost everyday. Great lunch specials. Staff and servers are so friendly!!! All of them. Great chili, potato soup, hamburgers, and brownie sundae! Perfect location by the slopes. Easy atmosphere. We do miss the breakfast service though.

We went here for dinner and had pizza. The pizza was delicious, the beer was cold and staff was friendly and courteous.

Drinks generous, prices reasonable and food fantastic! Waiters and waitresses couldn't be nicer! Can't think of anything negative except the bathroom was downstairs! Kind of a pain to walk to in ski boots!

Everything is great but try the pancakes for breakfast and pizza for dinner or lunch. Great burgers.

When we ski in CB we always have lunch at the Avalanche, and dinner at least once there, too. It's a comfortably casual spot, with very good service and equally good food. Their clam chowder, chili and chicken pot pie can't be topped. The fish and chips are as good or better than any, anywhere in the world! We had... More

When I come to CB, I spend every afternoon here. I used to spend every morning here, drinking a bloody mary and catching up with the locals before hitting the slopes. Those days are gone, but the great food, fast service and local scene is not! The Avy is my favorite mountain spot!
