Another great Salida place to eat

I was told the restaurant had recently changed hands so was unsure of whether to go. Was very pleased with my lunch as was my wife. Only complaint was the coffee was too weak and tasteless. Should consider using a coffee from The Red Hen.

We have stopped here on our way to Steamboat Springs from SE Arizona for 5 years now. Always a great dining experience and really good food. We keep going back because of the great food and fond, friendly memories of the staff and chef.

Spring break ski trip. The girls decided to have a shopping day while the boys skied a third day. We stopped here for lunch. Food was delicious, unique. Great place for a girls lunch.

We stopped in here for lunch. Our server told us that the restaurant had been sold in August and that there were changes in the menu and hours. Go with the menu on the website, not the one on Trip Advisor. I had the new Laughing Ladies burger while my wife had the Mirkwood. Both were very good and cooked... More

Decided to visit Laughing Laddies on 11-18-2015 based on the MENU that is linked to Trip Advisor's site. I wanted the Quail and my wife wanted the creamed spinach. We ordered and was told that menu on Trip-Advisor was no good and was null/void. That menu was from the previous owner from 1.5 years ago when the restaurant was bought... More

Salida is a quaint little western town on the Western Slope of the Rockies. But don't let the size of the town kid you. Laughing Ladies is an amazing find in any size town. The food was prepared with the freshest ingredients, the service was attentive and the dishes were all creative! Cheers

Lunch - chefs salad of the day consisted of greens, a few cherry tomatoes, two or three pieces of cucumber and a few walnut halves. All for $10. No bread, no goat cheese, no nothing.

I tell you, the food was so good a couple years ago. Something has changed. Dessert was actually bad.

We had a delicious breakfast here, and especially enjoyed the Bloody Marys. Service was a bit slow and our waiter seemed grumpy.

Over the years, some of the most memorable meals we've had were served-up at the Laughing Ladies. A recent return visit proved otherwise. Things started badly when, with no hostess to be found, one of the chefs -- rather sneeringly -- plopped down at a nearby table to do some paper work, without acknowledging us. The hostess/waitress soon showed up,... More
