We had a reservation, and were seated upon arrival. We sat outside, which was pleasant, and provided a nice view. Service throughout the meal was prompt. The french onion soup was very good. The entrees of pork, chicken, and trout were all cooked to order....More

Fairly boring, average menu. Could be so much more. Menu never seems to change and bad items never seem to get removed or replaced (Bucket O Balls are NOT good) Good news is the offering of the Pub menu all the time-the entrees are expensive...More

My family and I were in Vail for the weekend and were looking for a bar/restaurant we hadn't been to previously. This place is in Edwards but that's a short drive from Vail. The bar wasn't busy so we had the place mostly to ourselves....More

Really great food, interesting menu, and excellent service. And surprisingly well priced. We went with two picky-eater Tweens, and they had a great dinner too, plus the dessert menu was divine. This one is definitely worth driving a little bit out of town for!
