We locals have weathered a long trail of owners/managers of this historic eatery to mixed results. The new leasees of the restaurant are working their way into the business by wisely keeping the menu small and the hours taking in lunch and early supper, so are not over reaching their skills or time. Friends and I tried a weekday lunch... More

The miners burger was delicious. My friend was impressed with the flavor of his chicken sandwich. It was a bit pricey. The staff was very friendly

Located in Fairpley, CO, a great little town, this hotel is a historical treasure. The rooms are very clean, extra confortable with lots of room. The staff is super friendly and offer great service. I felt like I was staying at my own personal hotel. I did not eat at the restaurant but the stay there was so peaceful I... More

I went for lunch with my dad and boyfriend. I got the angus burger medium done, my dad got the reuben and my boyfriend got the chicken sandwich. The angus burger was burnt so crispy it tasted like charcoal, the chicken sandwich was also burnt crispy, and the reuben had just 2 thin slices of meat. I thought, at least... More

After visiting the restroom (filthy beyond words), red flags went up and we should have walked out. But we had already ordered. I expected the restaurant in this old hotel to be charming, but it was creepy and belonged in horror movie. Tablecloths were a wad of wrinkles and our waiter was a total zombie. We decided just to share... More

Gatsby's is in a beautiful preserved (or restored) hotel. But what a disappointment! The food was expensive and mediocre ($75 for four at lunch). My grilled chicken sandwich was a joke - about 1/4 inch thick chicken, overcooked and dry, and the sandwich had NOTHING else on it but a slice of cheese. Had to ask for mayo or sauce... More

We live local and needed a place while utility work was done at our place. The hotel was very historic and atmospheric and super friendly and small town-ish. Good food and I was glad I was staying in the hotel after trying their drinks - definitely good value and tasty as well. I couldn't believe how good the first drink... More

We stopped here because the other restaurants were closed (it was Sunday evening.) The food is TERRIBLE, the prices are ridiculous, and the bathroom is FILTHY. If I had seen the bathroom first, we would never had eaten there, no matter what! They charge $15 for a 'buffalo burger.' It was a tiny, thin piece of meat on a stale... More

We came here hoping the recent awful reviews were not true. Unfortunately they were spot on. If I had seen the bathrooms before sitting down, we wouldn't have stayed. But we did, and even if the food were enough to bring us back (which it wasn't), the surly employees (one in particular) guaranteed we would not return. How hard is... More

Very good restaurant. The hotel is there too (not so good). Open three meals. Ate there twice. Did not stay there, but saw two rooms.
