Had the Sunday brunch, which is order off the brunch menu - loved the creative menu choices, my ONLY complaint was that my food that should have been hot was not, it took quiet a bit of time to get the food so I wasn't about to send it back. Flavors and textures were great...coffee was really good, a few... More

My wife and I have been here twice once for lunch and once for dinner. Each time the food and service has been very good. We love the old town ambiance and the personal touch the chef gives to each meal. Service is always friendly and prompt. Dinner preparation can take awhile depending on when you arrive and your freshly... More

The chef always has fresh options, creative combinations and expertly prepared. What more can you ask for when dining out. We always enjoy our dinner.

We are “locals” and have several favorite restaurants in Salida, but Laughing Ladies is definitely at the top of the list for me. I’m amazed that Jeff is able to get such fresh fish here in the middle of the Rocky Mts, but for you out-of-towners – believe it! It’s fresh and beautifully prepared. You can’t go wrong with anything... More

My wife and I just had dinner at Laughing Ladies. My wife had the special Ahi and I had the standard menu sweet potato mushroom tamale with the goat cheese relleno. Wow! Jeff recommended some special wines not on the wine list.. It was a special evening. If we are in Salida again we will definitely return.

Well, I ate here 15 years ago. I learned back then that a reservation is highly suggested, (due to limited seating). So, as soon as we arrived in Salida, I called to make a reservation. Got one at my desired time. Hostess and wait staff are friendly and efficient. Never once did we have to ask for water, drinks, refills... More

Good stick to your ribs food - share an entree as the portions are huge. Great salad and good wine selection. Not a foodie place but a great place to take the family and enjoy good food and friendly service.

For the last half dozen years I have always stopped for lunch at Laughing Ladies when traveling from my home in Boulder, Colorado, to the San Luis Valley. But my stop there on August 21 is my last one. The food (salad) was okay this time (the previous time I was disappointed in their take on a Cobb salad, which... More

We didn't have a reservation, & the restaurant was busy, but the hostess made us feel welcome & seated us as soon as she could. The atmosphere was cheerful & the restaurant is charming. My salmon was perfectly cooked, crispy outside & rare middle, with a delicious sauce that I tried to duplicate at home! The chef came out &... More
