I was really surprised to read the content of some of the negative reviews listed below. We happened upon this restaurant by chance as we were driving down from Breckenridge on our way to Ouray. 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

We read on the Garlic Mike's restaurant website that they were voted best restaurant in Gunnison.  So, we stopped in for dinner on a recent visit to nearby Almont.  Unfortunately we were VERY disappointed.  We ordered the fried green tomatoes, and the server mentioned they were all out and we said we really came for the fried green tomatoes, and...

Our annual vacation to the Gunnison area always closes with dinner at Garlic Mike's, and we look forward to it all year long! Summertime is a very busy time for this wonderful place so make a reservation! Our server was super friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. All four in our party had something different and we each raved about our own... More

Our family has stopped at Mike's several times over the last few years. When the invitation to my 50th High School reunion arrived, I told my wife I would rather eat at Garlic Mike's.... The meal last Saturday was great. No stress, friendly and tasty. It was nice to finally meet Mike in person. Thanks Mike.

We traveled from NJ to Gunnison CO to celebrate the marriage of our daughter and fiance. They arranged to have the reception catered at Garlic Mike's. I can only say "FANTASTIC" The food, the service, the venue, and the attentiveness to us that night. Mike and his staff were there everytime we turned around, asking us constantly if we needed...

Terrific food and a great location along the Gunnison River. Get a reservation as this spot is very popular with the locals!
