“Won't be back”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

No doubt that this place is popular. We waited 30 minutes for a table to eat lunch at 2 pm. It is surrounded by restaurants with lots of empty tables. We split a chicken sandwich and fries as recommended by the reviews here. Both were excellent as was the service. Com'on man, $30 with one ice tea and one water! I could eat at Chick-fil-a every day for a week at that price. Had to pay to park too. We were crowded into a very small table in close proximity to other tables. There is no place to sit while you wait for your table. Aspen is hot in the summer too.

“The French Dip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I chose to eat at The White House Tavern based on its high ranking on the trip advisor website and I wasn't disappointed. As others have mentioned, the menu is surprisingly limited; however, the choices are diverse. I ordered the French Dip along with an order of the house fries and both items were created at their optimal excellence. Even better than the food was the service. It was EXCELLENT - Top Notch. I would highly recommend making this a stop when visiting swanky Aspen.
