“Disappointed but it was our fault!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

We were famished after hiking to Beaver Lake Trail! We needed a good meal and needed it fast. We tried another restuarant but it did not open for dinner for another 30 minutes...so we opted for a fast meal here. The service was a little lacking, perhaps because we did not want an alcoholic beverage. The waitress just did not seem to want to provide good service. My husband loves pizza and I will tolerate it. Because we were so hungry as we did not have lunch before the hike (huge mistake as we did not know what we were getting into), pizza sounded good. But once seated, my stomach got squimish at the thought of a greazy pizza. The special that day, Tuesday, was one large pizza, salad and pitcher of soda. Since I am not a soda drinker, just water, that did not excite me! I expressed concern about the greasy pizza and the waitress did NOT say, ours are not greasy, she just remained silent. So we each ordered something else. Well, the speciality here is pizza so it is always a mistake to not order the speciality. I had once slice of a mediterainan pizza (my first try and it sounded good) which was only mediocre and my husband had the chicken parmesan. That is his standby meal and this was one of the worst he has eaten. It just had no pizzaz! Anyway, on the way out, we saw a pizza and then knew it would not have been greasy and we were so sorry we did not carb out on it!

“Best Pizza in the Village, HANDS DOWN!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

You'll be missing out if you don't go here. Excellent crust, this is probably the best pizza we've ever had. Seriously good stuff.

“Best pizza on the mountain.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 17, 2012

My family and I were on a vacation in Beaver Creek. While walking around the village by the ice rink, we found Blue Moose. There was a lot of outdoor seating and the place was packed inside the restaurant so we decided to test it out. It was one of the best decisions we made. The food was wonderful and so were the drinks. The service was also very fast and polite. I highly recommend eating there. We ate there on the first day of our vacation and the last. It's worth it.

“Take out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were staying at a local hotel and decided to stay in the condo for one night and did take out. The pizza was very good and service nice. They were busy but seemed to have everything undercontrol. Will be back

“One of our favorite spots!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We have had a hard time finding good pizza in Denver....so everytime we are in Avon we try to make it here. It is a cross between a NY style and homemade Italian pizza. It is usually busy--go early.
