Our previous forays to the Pine Creek Cookhouse were only in the winter via cross country skis AND before the restaurant was rebuilt perhaps eight years ago. It was rustic and cozy before - it's a different feel now, but it's also better. Given everyone's usual arrival on bikes, hiking boots or skis, the restroom situation is important and the... More

Who cares about the food, which was very tasty, when you have a world class view like this. Pine Creek Cookhouse is near the end of Castle Creek Road and is totally worth the drive. Besides you can see the ghost town of Ashcroft along this way, which this cookhouse used to be a part of. Great views all around... More

Poor service. Disappointing food- not the healthy local ingredients that were promised in the adverts. Great location.

Went with a large group Of friend and family. This is one of the most beautiful places to eat on earth. Wildflowers , mountains, streams and a small waterfall all in a rustic out of the way spot. The food is good, limited menu, but what they do they do well. Couldn't ask for more.

This restaurant should be rated way higher for Aspen, and it's totally worth the drive up the mountain! The service was a little slow. We wanted to sit indoors, so had to wait for the bartender to serve us in between making drinks for all the other tables, however, the food was absolutely delicious! We had soup to start with...

This was my second visit to this very special place, the last visit more than 10 years ago. The restaurant is in an absurdly gorgeous valley overlooking majestic mountains all around. Each member of our party of 6 ordered something different. All were unique and delicious with the sautéed trout and buffalo momos as stand outs. Service was friendly and... More

This restaurant is in one the most beautiful mountain locations in the world. The food is great and the location is spectacular. It's not inexpensive, but worth every dollar. I will be back!
