Stayed in Gunnison on vacation. We followed our hotel desk clerk's recommendation and it was well worth it. Filetto con pepe, black pepper-crusted filet mignon with a Cognac mustard cream sauce. Absolutely delicious! For a small, out of the way town and a restaurant 2 miles out, it's definitely a gem. Service was friendly and helpful. We were there early... More

The food was good, did need a little salt. The bread they bring out is really good and served with 2 topping choices - butter and bruschetta. The bruschetta was really good! Our waitress was great and really helpful in helping us choose our meals.

We picked Garlic Mike's from the TripAdvisor list because were in the mood for pasta. We were not disappointed, My wife had the fettuccine alfredo while I had the farfalle bolognese. Both were excellent, we enjoyed them. Service was excellent, our server (Sudie (stet)) got the correct orders in, served promptly and kept our glasses full. Atmosphere was OK, they... More

The restaurant makes all it's own fresh pasta. It was so good and so filling. The night we were there they were short staffed, but we would never have known if we hadn't been told. The service was outstanding. If you are in the area stop and have a meal, just remember to save room for dessert.

During the warmer times you can eat out on the back patio which is nice, but in the colder months by the fire works.

We had no idea what to expect, Or what type of reviews the place had received. From the time we arrived, to the time we... More

Great food and drinks. The atmosphere was amazing as well. The shrimp scampi is incredible. Make reservations because thus place fills up.

It was a Very nice atmosphere and awesome riverside dinning outside. However, the pasta dishes we had tasted very bland and less flavorful than Olive Garden even! The WORST part was that we had to pay way too much for tasteless food, at least twice the price of other pasta places.

As a newly diagnosed Celiac, I was very pleased with the food at Garlic Mike's. The staff from the waitperson, the chef and the owner all bent over backwards to made my first gluten free visit to the restaurant as fabulous as all previous stops. Garlic Mike's is a destination restaurant for us (we drive 155 miles from Bailey CO).... More
