We stopped by to have a quick drink while waiting for our dinner reservation. It's a nice place with outdoor seating overlooking the town of Crested Butte. The Solstice was a very good beer. The Gulsh (sp?) and another beer, were not the best. The homemade chips and salsa were very good. The customer service was friendly and prompt. They... More

Awesome time at the ELDO for red lady ball. We dressed in red for HCCA. Band was awesome and we had room to dance. Bartenders were attentive.

All our meals were great, the local craft beer on tap was very good, and the servers/bartenders were all very nice and helpful.

Came with the wife and kids for lunch after a morning of mountain biking. Great craft beers and food. Watching Elk Ave traffic from the deck in the fall sun was the icing on the cake. Fantastic place!

My oldest daughter's favorite place in CB. Since we are in town checking on the progress of the house remodel, we decided to check it out. Want looking bar-pub with a nice menu. Great hamburger and fries. Wife had potato bacon soup with a Cesar salad which she rated 7 out of 10. Bartender service was prompt and friendly. We... More

All about atmosphere, right? What a cool little joint! Outside, upper deck to view the streets and mountain peak of CB! Not to mention, the bartenders have a superb taste in music, goes along great with a few Beers!
