“So so”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

It was ok. High expectations due to reviews, but left feeling that it was okay. For being upscale, it was really noisy and too compact. Service was good. Food portions were ok, can't say it was kid friendly.

“Don't miss Alley House Grill in Pagosa Springs.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

We saw it was #1 in Pagosa Springs, but we were not sure what to expect. It seems like a small house from the outside, but inside they treat you like a gourmet restaurant. The servers are attentive, the wines were good, the food was excellent.

Don;t miss it.

“A Foodie Destination in Pagosa Springs”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

My husband and I enjoyed a nice dinner here. I ordered the procuitto wrapped scallops and they were excellent. Comes with Israeli cous cous with cherries and almonds that was very taste and a shavel fennel/etc salad that was refreshing. My husband had the dinner special of the evening which was Rainbow Trout and the only disappointment was that the chili/chipotle sauce over powered the fish. Ambiance is nice and service attentive.

“So happy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

Being from out of state you never know the quality of a restaurant, but the reviews were good so we took a chance. Not just glad that we did, but ECSTATIC, that we chose Alley House Grille to celebrate our trip and our anniversary. The food was superb...steaks cooked to perfection and tender, scallops that were some of the best I've ever had.

The wine list was top notch as was the service. All four of us would highly recommend this restaurant for a great dining experience.

“Consistent excellence”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Alley House always gets our "two thumbs way up" review! The quality of the food is phenomenally good and the service is always superior. They'll make absolutely sure that meat is cooked according to your preference-- every time. The menu is nicely varied to accommodate all kinds of tastes, and the presentation is always lovely. I appreciate the chef's creativity and the standard of excellence that is upheld at Alley House. It's pricey but so worth it.
