“Ribs are FANTASTIC”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Get in early it can fill up fast, before 7 for sure.
The ribs are award winning, baby backs are my favorite. Steak, salads, pulled pork sandwiches, BBQ beef.
Very Reasonable prices for aspen.
Enjoy.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I was looking forward to coming here. We went on a Friday night around 8pm, no reservations but we managed to get a table for 3. We were cautioned that the meals are huge, we thought of sharing but decided against as we were greedy for some great BBQ and smoked meats. We ordered Combo meals. The meals came very quickly. All of us felt very disappointed after our first bite. It just tasted ordinary, nothing special. The ribs, pork and beef were lacking the "smoked" and BBQ taste. The chicken was dry. The sauce overpowered the dish. Coleslaw and beans were nice. Would have preferred sweet potato fries rather than tatters. We felt disappointed, and the three of us felt so bloated and gassy after the meals. No coincidence there I'm sure. I do like the ambience of this place and the service was good.

“Quick, tasty and honest”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Every season my kids ask o go to ~The Bear restaurant ~ when in Aspen. Famous by its ribs I prefer the NY strips or Ribeyes grilled to perfection.

“delicious and relaxed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

If you like informal dining and some of the best ribs you can imagine, this is the place to be. Location slightly out of town, so prepare for decent walk or get car to far end of Main Street.

“Most amazing ribs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2013

We visited Hickory house a couple of times last year and it was the first place we headed for this year even after 23 hours of travelling. We visited 3 times this year in a 10 day period. You will not be disappointed with the restraint but I do advise you to book in advance to be sure you get a table. My favourite this year was the combo #1, half rack of ribs with smoked beef. 10/10
