Tasty but pricey; Ambiance worth it

Come for the food, stay for the ambiance. Food is good, but it's the impressive fireplace and big mountain views that you really want to enjoy here.

Although I personally feel that Tabernash is on the up and up as a town I can say with confidence that Devils thumb ranch and Hecks tavern are putting this place back on the map!! The food is deliciously and freshly prepared! The atmosphere is none of any other place I've ever been. From the mountain views to the crackling... More

The location and facility is undeniably impressive. And the food is delicious, too. But we were somewhat disappointed to find that they were no longer offering the half-off Happy Hour special on appetizers. Instead, they had "specially priced" small plates, which were good, but $9 for three meatballs is a bit much, especially for this area. They do offer s'mores... More

This restaurant has the best views in Colorado, lovely casual luxury old west ambiance, and $3.00 Happy hour wine. What could go wrong? Well, getting a table. Last year I was up skiing with a couple of friends, and we wanted to enjoy a happy hour drink and dinner après ski. Although there were many vacant tables scattered around at... More

Food was fast and well presented. Though I wish they wouldn't wreck their great beef with truffle oil

Heck's is the perfect place for a casual breakfast, lunch or dinner in the CO Rocky Mountains. If you want "fancy", go to The Ranch House, located in the building next door at Devil's Thumb Ranch. It you want an open casual, relaxed wood burning fireplace located on the main floor of the Main Lodge, Heck's is the place. An... More

I did lots of research to find a nice restaurant in or close to Winter Park for our 30th anniversary trip. I settled on this one instead of the Ranch House as it sounded cozier. I made a reservation in advance of our trip and stated it was our 30th anniversary and that I wanted a table by the fireplace.... More

What a find. This place is exactly what you imagine when you think of "old west". Beautifully decorated with wood walls and old west touches. The atmosphere is very family friendly. The food was delicious. We shared several starters instead of individual dinners because the starters sounded amazing. Here is what we had - Bison Chili - hearty and tasty... More

After some hits and misses, we decided to take our ski bike guide's suggestion and go here for dinner. This was the best meal we had here over our long weekend. The service was also very good. Everything was fresh and well prepared. The venison-bison sausage chili was especially good, as were the pork chop (huge) and short rib entrees.... More

No doubt -- hands down -- my favorite dining experience in Grand County (area around Winter Park). This place is Old World elegant with contemporary common sense. The food is fantastic. The Wagyu beef burgers are great! The Miso salmon is wonderful. The apple cobbler with carmel is splendid. Spend some time looking around the place -- particularly the wood... More
