We are known as having the highest quality fish in town. Our fish is flown in 6 days a week within 24 hours from the docks. We offer a nightly happy hour every night at the bar from 5:30-6:30. In the summer we have a beautiful patio with heaters...and soon a fire pit table! We are a casual restaurant with a warm friendly charm, just like our town of Crested Butte. Private parties available and reservations are recommended but not needed.

A crowd pleasing restaurant with lots of variety

We went to Lil's for dinner because it's a popular place with lots of options. The food was prepared well and presented beautifully.

We liked the restaurant so much we went two times during the week we stayed in Crested Butte. The first time we sat at the bar and were truly amazed at the sushi chefs and their incredible creations being made right before our eyes. The second time we dined at a table by the windows. I had the same meal... More

I went to Lils on January 29 for my birthday with 3 close friends. We had a reservation at 8:30 and were seated right away. Our first order that we placed took at least 40 minutes to get out and then we ordered 1 more roll of sushi which took about 30 minutes to get out. By this time the... More

We stopped in without a reservation, but luckily the staff quickly made room for us at the sushi bar. The service, even on a busy night, was fantastic. The sushi appeared and tasted very fresh. Being able to watch the sushi chef prepare the meal added to the fun. Prices were moderate for sushi but worth it for the excellent... More

We went for dinner on our last day at CB. Place was packed so we sat at the bar and served by Kevin. He was fantastic. Food was excellent. We had bunch of appetizers to share....Dynamo shrimp, Yellow tail Jalapeño, Hamachi collar, Mussels and Lamb Chop. Love them all specially the crispy Dynamo Shrimp. I didn't try the sushi rolls...

We went on 12/28 and needed reservations a day in advance. Service was super. Quick and attentive with great service. We ordered several rolls and shared. Excellent sushi and we had pea pods for an appetizer: also tasty. We ended with an ice cream and pear crumble which lasted 60 seconds. Very reasonable pricing and one drink may have been... More

This is not your super traditional sushi joint, it's a more updated version of the same great food. They aren't offended if you want to try something that isn't on the menu (which is what I find annoying about traditional sushi restaurants). The wait staff are all very friendly, the guys making the sushi are on point and seem to... More

We've been looking for a restaurant or bar that serves prickly pear margaritas like the old Zuni Grill in San Antonio. We've found our spot!!

For a great experience I would recommend grabbing a seat at the bar and enjoying a meal there. The mixologist/bartender can answer any questions you have about any of the food or drinks. He creates some great cocktails from scratch. I recommend ordering a hot rock for a fun appetizer, the cuts of meat are delicious! I didn't have any... More
