We stopped here several times on our way to Vail. We really love it we have two small kids that it is hard these days to find kids friendly restaurant in Vail or surrounding area. We have to say every times when we stop here for a lunch with our kids we feel more Welcome every times . They can... More

We come to Silverthorne annually in mid-Sept for a decompression and leaf-viewing week, and eat out only occasionally as few of the local restaurants offer something different or good enough to get us off our balcony. Mountain Lyon is often on our list for lunch, though they serve breakfast anytime. We find the food usually good and served quickly by... More

The Mountain Lyon is my go-to place for breakfast in Summit County. Quick, friendly service; consistent great food. My favorites include the pork green chile (I get a cup with every meal), any Mexican dish, French toast, the fruit plate (when I want to go lite), pancakes, and the griddles. Oh, and this week I tried their biscuits (new) -... More

A small but good restaurant that serves a very good breakfast. Ate here 2 out of the 3 mornings we were in Silverthorne. The staff is very helpful, courteous, and friendly. Definitely recommend this restaurant.

I had an egg sandwich with avocado, very good. The place was packed with locals, which speaks volumes when choosing a place to eat. They don't have lattes, so I brought my delicious latte from the Red Buffalo coffee shop across the street to have with my breakfast. They didn't mind at all.

We eat at the Mountain Lyon often and choose it for most of our breakfast outings. Food is plentiful and yumi. Huge variety. Even when crowded, which is often the service is quick.

We arrived mid morning from Denver, on a random day out, towards the end of our extended road trip. We had no idea where to eat so asked at the local visitor centre. No question this was the place they would suggest, "but we might have to wait a while as it gets very busy". Well we did have to... More

We are locals and this is our favorite breakfast diner. Get there early or you will have to put your name on the wait list. The service is fast and friendly. I love the breakfast burritos with green chili. You get plenty to eat and several vegetarian options for a reasonable price.

Good food in a tiny little place. It is incredibly popular and if you aren't there first in the in morning for breakfast...be prepared for a long wait. The portions are good sized and the food is very good. The price is comparable to Cracker Barrel. I went there last year and when I came back with my family this... More

Coming back from Steamboat, my family and I stopped at the Mountain Lyon for breakfast. It seemed to be a local spot, and the help and food were great. The pancakes were good, the breakfast potatoes were excellent according to my wife. If you want to have a good breakfast, and not spend a ton of cash, I recommend that... More
