My wife and I were here for a special event, so I cannot speak to the regular menu, etc. However, our event was fantastic. The food was delicious (rainbow trout, chicken, etc.), the service was excellent, and they were very accommodating to our group. We enjoyed a concert while there, and it was just so fun and enjoyable. We have... More

Lovely food in the new building (not so new anymore) after old one burned. Good wine list and attentive service. Skiing home by moonlight with the coyotes howling was unforgettable. It's not cheap.

We look forward to having lunch here every summer. We go early and take a hike and hit the place as it opens. There usually are few people there at that time but we always make reservations to be on the safe side. Going early gives you the best chance to sit out on their beautiful patio, but if the... More

My wife and I had lunch at Pine Creek. We went there without reservations; that was a big mistake. Fortunately, we got the last two seats at the bar and had a delightful lunch. I had the elk bratwurst and my wife had a salad with added chicken. Both meals were excellent. Just do not assume, as we did, that... More

Took my sister here to celebrate her birthday, and we could not have been more pleased. We split everything so we could taste more options--the smoked trout appetizer was fantastic, the dipping sauce really complemented. Their house salad with apple and candied pistachios--delicious. Salmon entree, followed by the brownie dessert--a wonderful memory. Beautiful space and views--we'll be back!

After a not-so-difficult hike along the creek, we stopped for lunch that my companion described as "the best trail food I've ever had"! While the hostess who greeted us seemed indifferent ("we're not open yet, we're about to have our staff meeting, but you can be seated"), our server was pleasant, efficient, and refilled our water glasses without being asked...

WOW! The Pine Creek Cookhouse is spectacular! The view is so amazing, you just want to stay all day, stare off the deck and enjoy wine and the landscape. Food is terrific too. We had 13 in our party, everyone ordered something different and enjoyed each and every dish. Highly recommend!!

Pine Creek Cookhouse is a restaurant at the end of Castle Creek valley, with spectacular views of mountain peaks and an enormous above-treeline bowl that unites the peaks across the entire western skyline. The wine list is surprisingly good and the food ranges from excellent burgers and local chicken to mountain trout and similar local entrees. Highly recommended. We stopped... More

Whenever we visit Aspen our hosts bring us here. It's a beautiful ride to the Cookhouse and the food and service are excellent. Not to mention the beauty of the mountains.
