The outside restaurant is extremely overpriced. I had a salad for $16 that was just a handful of spring lettuce mix. Ridiculous. But the ambiance is the best. Inside, you get better food.

J-Bar at the Hotel Jerome has the best burgers in Aspen. The bar is classic and the service is perfect.

We went to J Bar for the reputedly wonderful burger. We were pleasantly surprised with the fun service (thank you, Frank) and the generous wine pours (thank you, Frank) and the overall stimulating atmosphere (thanks Frank and all the patrons enjoying themselves). We were pleased with the spicy edamames with shishito peppers, and the fries and cole slaw with the... More

The setting outside is lovely! We had a reservation and had to wait for 30 minutes for the table to be available. A pity since we were with locals who often go there! (As a local you do get 20 pc discount!). Nice touch! The wine waiter only half filled a guests glass from the last bit in the bottle... More

While in Aspen, my husband wanted to see a few of Hunter S Thompson's former favorite places so we stopped by the hotel Jerome. Firstly, the hotel is gorgeous with restored original tile and three beautifully unique dining space that we could see. The austere bar behind the lobby which felt like a step into the past, the light and... More

My husband and I stopped in the J-Bar for dinner on recommendation from a family member. The bar had a great feel to it. Our server, Louise, was great. She was very attentive to our needs, knowing exactly when we needed something. We enjoyed our dinner and drinks very much. The chicken noodle soup was very flavorful. We can also... More

We had sunset drinks on the patio and it was lovely. Staff very nice and accommodating. Didn't have food but from what we saw it looked fab! Definitely go for at least a drink, as Hotel Jerome is worth a visit. Very chic, old-style Aspen.

We stopped by for lunch with our three children. We ate in the lobby bar at a large window table. Enjoyed great burgers, soup and sandwiches. Great service and casual ambiance.

I wasn’t at this establishment long before I knew it was out of my price range. When a person looks down at a menu and sees that a bowl of soup is $12, their first thought, isn’t usually, “Oh thank goodness!” Thankfully, it was only a quick stop after my friends’ wedding to celebrate their new union. I simply ordered... More

Ski bums, socialites, cowboys and luminaries - from members of the Tenth Mountain Division to the late Hunter S.Thompson gather at this authentic bar for an hint of the Old West. Sit down, relax, and enjoy a beer, vintage-inspired cocktails and light dining fare for lunch or dinner. And don't pass on Aspen's best burger.
