“Best lunch in Aspen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 28, 2014

We visited The Whitehouse Tavern on 2 occasions during our recent trip to Aspen. This is a fantastic place for lunch. There is a great atmosphere in the place. The cocktails are great and the food is absolutely delicious with very generous portion sizes. The place has a beautiful fit out that has respected the history of this lovely building. Staff are friendly and efficient. It can get really crowded so you may have to wait for a table. We had a large group and tried most things on the menu. All were excellent.

“Hidden Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2014

Read the reviews of this restaurant before visiting and had high expectations. They have a small food menu but everything I ate was top notch. I had the simple chicken sandwich and fries which turned out to be one of the best chicken sandwiches I had ever eaten. Fries were fresh cut and were salted the correct amount.

Beer selection was plentiful with lots of local selections.

We arrived just before they closed, but the wait staff never rushed us and we felt very comfortable eating at our own speed.

Would definitely eat here again and try other items on the menu.

“Best Burger in Aspen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

We stopped in for dinner upon a recommendation from our concierge at Hotel Aspen. Every one of us got the cheeseburger and oh.my.goodness it was amazing. Fluffy brioche bun and all of the right toppings. Absolute perfection. Also, the Maple Black Walnut martini (not on the menu, just ask for it) was unique and delicious.

“Casual fare with a suprising options”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 21, 2014

Came here after traveling all day from NY. Just what I needed, a cozy place with comforting food. I had the kale salad which was the perfect size and and delicious along with the chicken meatballs.
My companion had the Thai Salad, and could not stop raving about it. Will definitely make it back there my next trip to Aspen. Be prepared to wait online. They do not accept reservations and there was a substantial line the entire time we were there.
