Ranked #10 of 17 restaurants in Lake City
Certificate of Excellence 2014
Price range: $5 - $15
Cuisines: American, Vegetarian, Pizza & Pasta, Sandwiches
Good for: Outdoor seating, Scenic view
Description: We are open from late May thru late Sept. Our menu consists of pizzas (only one size - 16 inch - feeds 3-5 people), calzones, pasta, sandwiches, salads and desserts. We also have a 10" Gluten Free pizza and we have GF bread and buns for our sandwiches. For drinks, we have fountain drinks, iced tea (sweet and unsweet), beer (gluten free also), wine, fruit tea smoothies, specialty coffees and shakes. We also offer a dine-in special from 4-6 pm every day which consist of a cheese pizza and a pitcher of either beer or soda for $14.83. We have indoor seating as well as tables on the front deck and outside open dining with a great view of the mountains. As you enter, you will get a menu and be instructed to sit wherever you like and when you are ready to order, proceed to the register where you will place your order and pay at that time. You will be given an order number which will be called out once the order is ready. We prepare the food in the order that orders are taken and they are prepared fresh at that time. We do not jump tickets in order to do the easier ones or ones that take less time to prepare. We also do not have pre-prepared items. Occasionally, we will have some extra pizza slices prepared which can be bought immediately without having to wait. When we are in the busiest time of the summer season (late-June to mid-August), it is not uncommon for our customers to wait between 30 minutes to an hour for the food - just trying to be honest. The majority of our customers tell us that it is well worth the wait. We do not deliver but we take phone orders for carryout. During the same time frame mentioned above, we offer an "All You Can Eat" breakfast for $6.99 From 7:30 to 10:00. We shut breakfast down promptly at 10:00 so we can prepare for lunch which begins at 11:00. Please call to verify our closing times which vary depending on the time of the season. We also close on Sunday so we can go to church and have our day of rest. Please come by and give us a try. We would be glad to serve you.

A beautiful hole in the wall restaurant. Great food and the story behind Poker Alice is quite interesting. The food is fresh and it's fun sitting off one of the main roads through town and watching the traffic that comes through.

We loved this place when we visited Lake City in 2012 and 2013. Now Poker Alice should be renamed Pokey Alice because it is SO slow! It took us over an hour to get our sandwiches! My oldest ordered the Tilapia wrap----don't get this!! He ended up having some serious stomach issues for the rest of the day, and into... More

We are so sorry that your latest experience did not live up to your expectations. And, we are sorry that your child became ill that day and if it was something that he ate at our establishment, we sincerely apologize.

I ordered cheese pizza and chicken sandwich plus milk and 2 sodas at 2:03 pm on a Saturday for near $30. Order was finally ready for pick-up at counter about 1 hour later. The restaurant was busy but not crowded.Disappointed in quality and speed.

Ate here twice on our trip. Once for pizza and once for breakfast. Alice offers gluten free options for pizza and breakfast. Both very tasty

We weren't looking for fast food, so didn't mind the time it took to cook it fresh. The pizza slices were huge, the veggie calzone was scrumptious, and there were good gluten-free options for the one in our party who needed that accommodation. We'll go back if our travels find us once again in this beautiful area of Colorado!

The food is very expensive for average quality. We had a party of 4 and it took a very long time to get our orders out. The man working at the cash register took a long time to ring up our order. We got quite a bit of food, we had enough to take home. The menus have a little... More

Have eaten here several times over the years. It's expensive, good pizza, but they have no idea how to cook it. It should not take nearly 2 hrs to get your order at lunch on a non-busy day. Eat here only if you want to spend your day here. Stopped at noon to eat, weren't done until 3:00!!!! It was... More

Food is good above average. If I were rating on food alone I would give 4 stars so please don't think the food is bad. My 3 star rating comes from the long wait. We had 2 meals here today, lunch and dinner. Both meals took one hour from the time we ordered until the food was ready. This could... More

This is order at the counter and eat inside or out when your number is called. It was noon on a Monday. There were lots of customers but no wait ordering. The calzone was really good. Tilapia Parmesan was good. It took 1 hour and 25 minutes to get our food. We were not alone. Maybe it was a bad... More

Regardless of food quality, often the people working in a place can make or break a dining experience and the people here were good friendly folks so we knew we were in the right place immediately upon entering. No frills place so don't expect a fine dining experience and honestly if you do, you probably shouldn't be in Lake City... More

Thanks JZRIV for the kind comments, You expressed very well the feelings of the majority of our customers that choose to eat with us. We are not a fast food restaurant and hope that everyone understands that during busier times of the summer, orders do take time to make. Thanks again!! More
