I have been here many times over the years. One such time I went on a date with my ex and we ordered lobster and the works. The waiter was stoned. Well it is Colorado, but not cool ... He forgot pretty much most of what we ordered, the additional silverware, the water we asked for at the beginning ..... More

Business meeting in the restaurant. Good selection of appetizers were enjoyed. Unique drink specials (after meeting!), lively place, nice decor. Dinner menu looked good but ate too many apps ! Separate meeting room had overhead projector and screen permanently installed, easy set up, good environment for a team meeting.

I only had a salad here but it was fresh and tasty. My only suggestion would be for the restaurant to offer more "lunch options" of full meals but small plates. I don't want a $20 lunch but I settled on the salad due to the limited lunch options. This place might be better for dinner.

Sometimes I wonder what the point is of reviewing a franchise restaurant. I'm not certain the folks that could really make a difference even care, as long as they have patrons, and the place is profitable. We met our traveling cousins from NY for a lunch before they headed up to Copper Mountain for the week. My cousin thought it... More

This is our second visit to this restaurant but our first time for dinner. Our expectations were high for the dinner experience but we were disappointed with the steaks we ordered. We ordered steaks medium-well and they came cooked medium-rare and almost rare! The flavor of the meat was very bland. The shrimp appetizer was also disappointing--the shrimp were small... More

I love trying new places and some friends and I went to Cool River for lunch. The atmosphere inside is really nice but the food and service were just mediocre on my first and second visit. This is a nice place but it's not really my thing.

Nice atmosphere. Service had a few hiccups. Food overall was pretty average for the price. I'd try somewhere else first.

Pretty expensive place, but their portions are very generous and food is up to par with prices. Been twice and will visit again!

The restaurant was very nice inside, and out. It was a little windy and the umbrella wanted to fly away, so we moved inside. I ordered a chicken sandwich with asparagus on the side. The asparagus was seasoned and cooked just right. The chicken sandwich I ordered was good, but a little dry. Probably due to the fact that I... More

Had the Australian fish dish and a chocolate dessert. Solid wine list. Great service. Went 52.80 weeks.
