Stopped in Rawlins as an overnight on way home from Yellowstone. We were seated at a table over the kitchen and had the hum and vibration of the exhaust fan...uncomfortable. Husband had prime rib which was a large cut and tasted very good. I had house made mushroom ravioli which was very creamy... read more

Had two good dinners, steak salad and pasta with shrimp. Both were good, good service. Interesting place in a house try it.

Extremely good steak salad and salmon special (light menu), with a glass of house wine made for a homey restaurant experience. We travel by car from coast to coast and seldom find such a nicely prepared, quick, delicious dinner. In Rawlins, WY, it was worth the 5 minute trip off Hwy 80 to discover this popular place in a neat... More

If you come order meat. This is Wyoming after all. I had the "medallions and shrimp" a huge portion of steak and such amazing flavor. The sauce was slightly spicy. Don't forget that rare means 'just take the saddle off" so medium rare was barely warm inside. yum! The cocktail was strong and the service was sweet.

This is supposed to be one of the best places in Rawlins, and the prices indicate that it should be, but it doesn't quite hold up. The wait staff is slow and inattentive and when I ordered a top shelf whiskey I was served Black Velvet. In what universe is Black Velvet anything other than trash can whiskey?

Due to a highway closure we were unexpectedly in Rawlins overnight. As usual, we checked Tripadvisor for a dinner spot. We hate eating in chains when traveling. This is a gem...as good as anywhere we have been. Set in an old home, there are several small dining rooms with 2 to 4 tables in each. We were in the front... More

As we were returning to Minnesota from a Southwestern motor-trip, we ended up staying in Rawlins overnight. Since it was one of our birthdays, we checked ahead on rated restaurants. The Aspen House came up strong; so we made reservations and showed up at the designated time. The restaurant is in a restored 100+ year old home, which has served... More

Last August (2014) we were traveling back from Massachusetts to California along Highway 80, and used our GPS to help us find some good, healthy and atmospheric restaurants along the way. When in Wyoming, we took a chance on this place, and were THRILLED at how nice it was! The atmosphere is warm, cozy, intimate, with a lot of unique... More

Rustic, 100-year old house with very intimate setting. Good steaks, surf and turf. Great place to have a business lunch or quiet, relaxing dinner.

The Aspen House is a diamond in the rough.Located in a historical house ,it is a great place for a business luncheon or romantic dinner. The steaks are wonderful and the Baton Rouge pasta selections are primo.they offer a variety of Cajun,Asian influenced dishes and definently worth a visit.
