Fantastic Food

A local guy tipped me off as to the hidden location of his bar / restaurant. Being located in the basement of a hotel, it's dark and loud. However, the staff is very kind. And, the food is fantastic. I had the half roasted chicken with mashed potatoes and vegetables. It was the best I have ever... read more

I'm afraid to review the George because I want it to stay undiscovered. This is my favorite apre' ski pub in Vail. It is very laid back with large cushioned sofas and oversized seats in which to relax. They have an extensive pub menu and terrific happy hour deals. The food is excellent. Service is typically excellent as well. They... More

Unless you know about it (or are tipped off by a local) the George is very easy to overlook. It's not very encouraging as you walk down the long corridor, but a real eye-opener when you open the door to the buzzing bar area. The George is a very informal place and ski-wear (including ski/board boots) seems to be the... More

My brother recommended this place as a locals hang out with great happy hour food and drinks specials. Best value in Vail. There is a picture wall featuring famous people named George. We entertained ourselves trying to name all the Georges while waiting for our dinner. Service was very good. Scallops were wonderful.

Having checked the menu and read a couple of reviews, it looked like a great place to try. Unfortunately, I was not able to bring in my grown sons (almost 19 and 21) due to some weird policy about 16 - 20 year olds not allowed. They lost my business. Not sure if I would bother trying to go back.... More

Their claim to fame in Vail is the very, very reasonable happy hour where prices for both drinks and appetizers can't be beat.

I am so glad we found this place. Don't be tricked by the vibe and appearance of this place. The food was excellent. We visited a higher end restaurant in Vail and dropped a good amount of the money. The George was sooooo much better. We took advantage of the sirloin and king crab happy hour special for 23 dollars.... More

I come here often to eat and drink. Very lively place with great happy hour deals until 7! You can get a great ribeye dinner for $21 and a good glass of wine for $4.50 Great servers too!

I would never have thought this underground bar could offer such outstanding food and outstanding value, Over a pound of King crab legs for under $20!! The duck confit quesadilla is the best thing on the menu and only $10. The plum duck cannot be beat -- not to mention cheese steaks and fries with cheese curd (a Canadian thing)... More
