ENJOYABLE QUICK LUNCH

Hubby and I went in to the Avalanche and had lunch. I had the burger which was very good and he had a tuna fish sandwich which he said was good as well! The prices are reasonable for being a resort area. They have strange hours so check first before you go and make sure that they're open. When we... read more

Sad that such a solid mountain resort restaurant can only be open from 11 to 4 each day because of a lack of good workers .... but we were lucky that even just the lunch fare was not only well priced for a resort like Crested Butte, but really good and huge portions to boot!

Amazing breakfast every morning, pizza's were incredible in the evening and every theme night was brilliant. Crab night and rib night were a personal highlight (you had to book due to popularity!). My wife tried in vain to demolish a pancake breakfast. Friendly and attentive staff and a perfect atmosphere for cool and simple apres ski. Loved this place so... More

We couldn't wait to see our friends at Avalanche again. The wait staff is so great, they seem to love the place too. Food is great and not pricey.

No frills apre ski bar serving all the things you need after hard day on the mountain. Fun staff and no nonsense menu makes it easy option if you dont feel like going into town. Ask for Dave local ski instructor to get some local knowledge but buy him a beer for his trouble

Seems like every restaurant we tried in the base area of Crested Butte was pricier than Vail yet not all that good. The Avalanche Bar was no exception. We got burgers and they were very average to below average. At $15 bucks each its not all that great. That said, Im not sure where you can go in the base... More

We skied a full day and wanted burgers and beer. Luckily, the Avalanche Bar and Grill was just a short walk from where we were staying at the Grand Lodge. They sat us right away, we had beers in front of us quickly and our order on the way. We all ordered burgers and they were excellent. They came fast,... More

This is a great place to eat after a long day on the slopes. It is fast, convenient, and lots of variety of food.

This place will really surprise you. Sure it's a relaxed little place, not pretentious, not outwardly indicating how good their food is. Really it's GOOD!!!! We've enjoyed a dozen or so meals at Avalanche and they've all been good. However, (message to the Avalanche), the best meal I ever had at Avalanche was their breakfast (which they no longer serve).... More

The food was good. We had fish and chips, which was excellent. They didn't want to put the tables together for 10 of us until everyone was there. Guess I understand that but it was an inconvenience. Service was good, though.
