Good burgers

A large seating area inside meant that on each of our three visits, we managed to find a table without too much of a hunt. The burgers (and fries) were the most enjoyable options for me. The high ceilings and big open fire make this a very enjoyable venue.

We just had our wedding at the Gorrono and just loved beauty of the surrounding mountains as well as the rustic atmosphere of the ranch itself. The staff were fantastic, the food was excellent (we went with the Rocky Mountain trout (highly recommend) and beef tenderloin)). The appetizers were a big hit as well - especially the crab cakes!

Great setting, great music, views to die for and very average and not good value for the basic slope lunch, food tasted as if it had been lying around since 11 am in the morning. Not the best but will keep you going

This is on the ski slope and is a wonderful way to eat lunch on the mountain when you need a lunch break but as all these are very expensive bring lots of $$$ I had Hawiian Luau smoked pork and mango slaw which was awesome as well as blue potatoes

Yes, of course it's expensive, but I certainly didn't expect that eating on the mountain at a ski resort would be cheap! I also wasn't expecting it to be so delicious! I had the pulled pork sandwich and cole slaw, both of which were great. The pork, unadorned by anything other than a flavorful sauce, was tender and tasted wonderful.... More

Had to return the apple i bought as it was rotton. The chili a bit cold. Nothing special. Outdoor music and fire pit best think about the stop

Pulled pork sandwich and ranch beans were as good as I have had!! Terrific live music and beautiful scenery for a mid day meal on the mountain. Stop for lunch and enjoy the scenery!!

We came during spring break but they had live music and outdoor/indoor seating. They have two places to get food. One is outdoors and is bbq - get the pulled pork sandwich and beans - you won't be disappointed. It's very expensive, even if you eat inside. The second day we had kids chicken strips. It was the cheapest thing... More

Truly magic on earth & worth any effort it takes to get there, just wish there were still direct commercial flights from AZ to Telluride not montrose :( The Coco Rowena makes for the kids up at Gorono is worth the trip itself)

Ski resort is top shelf. All restaurants are excellent. Never had a bad meal. Favorite lunch spot is the Gorrano (sp?) mid mt., for lunch and a bloody mary and best views in Colorado.
