Terrific place!

We are foodies from California who were delighted to find such a high quality dinner on our drive through Colorado. We had the special of the night mahi mahi and the duck with sweet potatoes, both of which were outstanding. Beer and wine also very good.

We have given this place several chances and each time they fail. Our breakfast was disgusting and the service was terrible. We waited over an hour for food. We had to ask each time for a refill on coffee or water and had to ask at least twice. The food was so salty it was almost inedible. This was the... More

This place is under new ownership and instead of changing a bunch of stuff, the new owners really have maintained the character of the place and possibly taken the quality of the food up a notch. Brunches are amazing, lunch is really good and dinners are great. Better make a reservation though. Dinner tends to fill up.

Dinner at Laughing Lades was delicious - I had the special: Salmon and bacon wrapped scallops with asparagus and various sauces. The taste sensations in my mouth were amazing. My friend has the rib eye and said it was cooked ansd seasoned perfectly. The wine list was off the charts. The service was immpecable and the ambience was enchanting! I... More

In a renovated brick building, the restaurant has a fun, pleasant vibe. The menu is great, wait staff friendly and helpful. Be sure to reserve your dessert first, as it may not be available later!

This restaurant recently sold and we dined here many times. We expected the new owners to want to put there touch on this classic restaurant. The service was excellent, our server very personable and professional. The appetizers were off the mark. Tamale was dense, tasted heavy, in my opinion not well executed. The goat cheese salad arrived with too little... More

We loved our meal at Laughing Ladies. I had a glass of Chilean wine that was full bodied and dry. We shared a Nutty salad that was easily big enough for two and featured beautiful spring greens with nuts and cheese. Our special of the day, again shared, was blue marlin in a balsamic reduction with green beans and small... More

The gravy was perfectly seasoned and full of flavor and the homemade bisquit was pure flaky deliciousness! I couldn't decide if I liked the raspberry jam or the gravy better. Our server, Laura, was conscientious and friendly and accommodated the kiddos with gentle flair. I will be taking the family back for more than Moher's Day!

Hoping for more for $30 when ordering two breakfasts, I left disappointed but understanding the name "Laughing Ladies". They were! The employees, that is. While we were neither seated nor offered much attention. Even ordering, when both of us were ready, was too much to handle. "Drinks only." Then after a while, and more employee/employee conversations, our orders were taken.... More
