Mussels, but...meh.

We came back here in search of my favorite cocktail ever, which has been discontinued. Very sad day. Good thing the mussels were tasty, or we'd have walked back out the door. View is the best part!

On a recent ski trip to Telluride, we were told a must experience is Allred’s for the views, food and service. Well….the view was awesome. Service was not good. We felt at times like we were invisible. Could it be because we were two women dining without male accompaniment? Hope not. When we expressed we wanted to order a bottle... More

We had a very large group which may have made the experience average. The view is great and the bar area looked cooler than the dining area. If you like more formal dining then you may enjoy it. The food was decent but a little pricey for the quality.

First, this place is a BLAST simply because you take a gondola to get there. Yes, a gondola. It's on the top of the mountain that you cross between Telluride and Mountain Village, and affords the most gorgeous view for sunset cocktails that I've ever been. Really. The bartender was very engaging and fun, and did a great job with... More

Without question, you will not find a better review in Telluride. The service is also excellent. The food, however, is over-priced and leaves much to be desired. I had the chicken breast with broccolini. It was good, yet not great. My wife had the elk, which is one of her favorite's, and was very disappointed to find it over-cooked and... More

We could't get a dinner reservation over president's day week. So we just decided to scope out the bar around 5 pm so we can catch the sunset. We were really lucky to get a spot right next to a window on the corner. Amazing views. Amazing drinks. Amazing food. Amazing service at the bar area. The Edamame and the... More

We stay in Telluride several times each year and it has become a tradition to conclude a ski holiday or a summer hiking holiday with a dinner at Allred's. It is famous for the view overlooking the historical mining town of Telluride. It always was known for its hearty beef and Elk menu and for the bar. However, since Mario... More

If you want an après ski cocktai, casual dinner or elegant dinner this place has it all. Great menu, great wine list and a view that is more stunning than you can imagine. The Gondola trip up the mountainside is breathtaking

I celebrated my birthday over dinner at Allred's with my fiancé and a small group of very good friends who live in Telluride. Mario, the maitre d' and friend, greeted us like family, put us at a window table (with incredible views!!) and paid very close attention to our meal and service, which were both impeccable. We almost always plan... More
