Garlic Mike's has a good atmosphere, outdoor seating during the summer, and the food and service are outstanding. They also have happy hour and apres ski specials nearly every day.

Garlic Mike's is one of our favorite places to visit in Colorado. We've been coming here for 4 years as a family. The food is great, the service is spot on, and the atmosphere is amazing. The bar serves great drinks. We always show up early to grab a drink and go relax out back by the river. It's a... More

We have been visiting Gunnison/ Crested Butte for the past four years to see the wildflowers and always eat at our favorite restaurant in Crested Butte, Le Bosquet. This year we decided to try something new on one of the nights. We had seen Garlic Mike's every year but had never tried it. We were a bit skeptical going in... More

4th of July. Many places are closing early so the employees can go enjoy the fireworks. We get to Garlic Mike's and there are people lined up in the hall approaching the host / hostess counter. We notice they're all talking to each other and ask if they're all together. They are. We squeeze past and put our names in.... More

I am reading these reviews and am cannot believe what people are saying. Garlic Mike's is one of the best Italian restaurants in the state. Mike has his food down to an art form..which is why he has been featured on various cooking and news programs. The staff is friendly and well-trained. What I am noticing most in the reviews... More

We ate there tonight. When we walked in, we were asked if we had a reservation. We didn't but there were plenty of empty tables. After about a 5 minute wait, we were seated. Staff was very friendly. I ordered a drink, unfortunately, it was so strong, I couldn't drink it. We then ordered our meal, it took over 30... More
