The food was great! The tomato soup was made in the kitchen and the Ruby Red Trout was the best I have ever eaten. The menu was broad. The service was quite good. We will be back!

We have eaten here twice this year and both times were great. The food is very good and the ribs are to die for, the service was excellent. Bonnie, our server, was great and the atmosphere is vintage and cozy.

We totally enjoyed our dinner at the Arapahoe and would return again in a heartbeat. The salmon was spectacular. We arrived late and the staff was nice enough to serve our large group in spite of the time. The service was very accommodating and the food was very good. I highly recommend the Arapahoe.

We dropped by Arapahoe for lunch and tried their burgers. The place is popular, especially their outdoor sitting. We took a table inside because we didn't want to wait for exterior sitting. The interior is a little tight, the staff was friendly and the food was good. It had a great atmosphere. We'll try it again, maybe their breakfast next... More

From cheesy brisket covered fries to rueben sandwiches or chicken corn chowder this place checks all the plus boxes! Oh and let's not forget the perfectly smoked ribs with some mighty good mountain BBQ sauce! We have eaten great breakfasts here for years but this I Was our first chance to have a lunch. We certainly will make more stops... More

We ate at this restaurant while staying a couple of days at the hotel behind it. The hotel desk personnel recommended it. This appears to be a small place but it actually has 2 restaurants - one on the main floor and another in the bar below. There is also an outside area to eat at but it was already... More

Yesterday drive from Denver Kenosha & Boreas pass to check out the fall colors. We wanted a casual dinner and found it. Very tasty ribs with solid service. Fun to play a little foosball with my daughter as we waited 20 min for seating.

This restaurant has it all -- a good menu, great seating either inside or out, a nice relaxed atmosphere, and an outstanding staff. We had both meat and fish dishers, and they were delicious. The seating made for quiet conversation, and the pace of our meal was perfect. All of this came at a very reasonal price. One word of... More

The Arapahoe Cafe serves one of the best breakfasts in The Colorado mountains. I typically order Sarah's breakfast without cheese. The eggs, sausage, potatoes and toast are prepared to perfection. Their orange juice and coffee are excellent. The cafe is near Lake Dillon and is next to a Best Western Hotel. It is housed in an old home. The flower... More
