Great food, service and atmosphere. Make a reservation during peak seasons & holidays. Not sure if they cater to children, didn't ask.

“Best birthday dinner ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2013

W started with mussels Oh my they were delicious, My husband and I could not resist on the specials the waitress recommended, awesome girl, the whole staff is amazing, a very good customer service. I had the Elk with a Ecuadorian tamale and Veggies, my husband had the ribeye with the best mashed potatoes we have ever had and ring onins (the batter was awesome) ending dinner with a good creme brulee...Best birthday Dinner ever. Amazing staff. We were seated by the fireplace more romantic than that I don't think so.

“Don't pass it up”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

If you are near Pagosa Springs, even just passing through, you must visit this fine restaurant, just to see what quality food you can get in a small town. Yes, it helps to be a tourism mecca, for skiing, fly fishing, or the springs, but this is a great restaurant, wherever you might find it. Make reservations, as it is likely to be crowded. From the salad, to the main course, the wine selections, the vegetable, but especially the dessert (bread pudding to die for), this kitchen just doesn't miss a step. Presentation is every bit as good as the flavors. Service is informal and casual, but very helpful and well informed. The decor and ambience is upscale as well, a nice surprise that adds to the overall experience.

“Very pleasant, upscale restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2013

Restaurant in an old house on the main street. Prices in line with just about anywhere aspiring to be a better restaurant. Good value. We liked the atmosphere here. Great fireplace in the main room. Wonderful bar nicely coordinated with the dining room. Locals mixed easily with travelers. Overall a nice experience.

Watch the "No U-turn signs" in front of the restaurant. The local mounties like to increase their revenue by picking up auslanders who fail to notice them in the dark on a very broad main street. Shame on them. But hey, they're not doing what any tourist locale does when it taxes the auslanders to death on rooms and restaurants

I just want to give a big "thank you" to the last two reviews posted on March 1st. And all the great people that have taken the time to review us over these last few months.
We work very hard to keep up our reputation as the "BEST" restaurant in Pagosa Springs!
Respectfully,
