My friend and I came here for lunch after hiking. We sat on the patio which was shaded and quiet, we seemed to miss the lunch rush. Our server was prompt and friendly. I ordered the fish tacos- delicious. They were panko battered which made...More

Food and service were great again. Our primary server had great recommendations. The ginger and lychee martinis and margaritas were a big hit. The pyro sashimi is slightly better than new style, but that's because we got 1 new style and 2 pyros, so we...More

We caught the bus in front of the hotel and went to the town of Crested Butte for quite possibly the best sushi ever. My husband ran into the chef on the slopes that morning and he invited us for dinner. Thank you very much...More

LOBAR got started in 2004 under the guise of being Crested Butte’s only night club, but the ruse only lasted 8 days when we added Sushi to our menu and things really took off. We’re renowned for serving great sushi, and for throwing better parties.Our restaurant is inspired by creative Japanese cuisine, and pop art from the 50′s. You’ll find the video monitors around the restaurant projecting old Godzilla movies, snowboard videos, and an occasional kids cartoon. But its not visual entertainment only, as our sound system playing anything from Chicago Blues, to contemporary drum and bass, and you’re sure to find hip-hop on the weekends.This season be sure to stop by for our happy hour from 5pm – 6pm Mon – Fri. Our happy hour menu is full of excellent selections from our regular menu, and if you find a seat at the sushi bar the chef may throw in something even better.Were open 10 months a year. We like to close on Christmas Day, Thanksgiving Day, and the whole month of April, when the staff ( along with most of crested butte ) splits for a well deserved holiday.Stop by and check us out. – Kyleena
