Good supper

We had an enjoyable meal, 4 adults and 2 kids and were well looked after. The atmosphere is buzzy, and whilst the 45 minute table wait made us linger, we were glad we did. All food and drink arrived promptly and was of a high quality. Prices by Vail's standards were fair. In fact, if travelling... read more

Not a massive selection of food - but all the favourites served here. We arrived at the start of the season and it was busy busy busy, great atmosphere slightly slow service as a result. Soups very tasty but could've been hotter.

Went to have a quick dinner. There was a little mix up with the order but no big fuss. The little one ordered wings but wasn't asked what type of sauce. Got the spicy one in error so I ended up eating them. I ordered the mahi tacos with a side of tots since I heard good things about them.... More

The atmosphere at this Resturant is great, however the service is slow and the prices are high. The quality of the food is average at best.

Recently had lunch here, the food was excellent..and would recommend fajitas or chicken pot...large portion, so if your not so hungry share between two. Servers were attentive, and ambience was nice

Have dined at this upscale casual restaurant a few times over a number of years. This is a place to have a gourmet burger or other basic dish. Service is very good and the atmosphere is comfortably rustic.

Best mudslides and awesome atmosphere! We go here every time we are in Vail. It is the place to go for a happy hour with a group.

While they don't take reservations, they do seem to turn over fairly quickly. We were told there would be an hour wait, but the wait was less than 15 minutes. Burgers are excellent and our waitress was wonderful.

Fun, busy restaurant in the Sonnenalp. No reservations. Go early and put your name down. Time they suggest is much longer than the actual wait at 7:30. Go later if you can wait. Restaurant clears out by 9 ish. Great burgers, fish and chips, ribs. All recommended. Service was fast and friendly.

No complaints here on this place. We waited 40 minutes when they said it was about an hour wait. The food was excellent. Wonderful service. Cool atmosphere. We had a large party with 4 adults and 5 kids. It was very kid friendly!
