The wonderful smoker smell makes you hungry as you enter the restaurant. We enjoyed the Kale and Brussels Salad first and then the smoked Ribs. They also have a nice selection of local craft beer to enjoy.

We received a recommendation from our Snow Mobile Tour Guide who is also a chef. This place was amazing! The restaurant is clean and modern. The food was to die for! The owner was present and involved. We will return again during our visit.

A local recommended that we join him for dinner at this restaurant. We have been visiting Summit county for over 25 years and had no idea this restaurant existed. It’s in a nice quiet part of Frisco away from all of the traffic. The atmosphere...was great (what you would expect in a upscale mountain town), loved the food options and the attentive service. We will definitely make it back!!More

We ate at Tavern West with friends last weekend. We made reservations in advance to make sure we got a table. We had a great meal with wonderful service. I had a burger that was cooked exactly medium rare the way I wanted it. Our...group also ordered the scallops, tater tots, beet salads, and bolognese. We loved everything. Menus were all on line, staff was wearing masks to protect us, and we felt very comfortable dining out with them. The staff was very attentive and friendly and Bobby, the owner was in the resturant and checking in with the guests. It was an extremely enjoyable evening. We will go back and we highly recommend it.More

We went to this restaurant the first night we arrived to Frisco. We were a little hesitant because we did not have any time to do a research about the quality of their food. We are no happy we stopped and tried their food. Everything...was absolutely great! Server was very friendly and helpful... even the busboy... (the owner) came by to greet us. Excellent experience.More

Nice atmosphere and upscale food. Most of the food was great. The snapper was overcooked and under seasoned. Duck ramen was a great choice. Drinks were good with some interesting selections. Would come back when visiting Frisco again.

Excellent food and service! Our waitress was super friendly. The food was all wonderful, as was the carrot cake we all shared for dessert. It is a bit of a pricier meal, but I would say it’s worth it.

Tavern West has been a go-to dinner spot for us for years whenever we visit Frisco. The atmosphere is welcoming and lively. It’s not uncommon to see families, ski groups and friends enjoying the fantastic food and service. While it is not a quiet place...it also isn’t hard to have an intimate conversation. The daily specials are always very good and the full menu does not disappoint. Last night the special was a rack of lamb that was prepared to perfection! The pork chop is a favorite of ours but you better arrive hungry, it is huge. There is a full bar with signature cocktails, a rotating beer selection and plenty of good wine choices to compliment the menu. I highly recommend Tavern West.More

While visiting the area we decided that Tavern West would be a great dinner for upscale food, boy where we right. I didn't read enough into the information about the restaurant around 6 on a Friday thinking we will be sat pretty quickly......We were quickly...told they should be able top have a table ready by 8:30. However, the host said we could stand in the bar area and wait for something to open up sooner, so we did and sat down at the bar within 15 minutes. It was difficult to decide on what to eat because we wanted to try everything. I went with the bolognese and my wife had the duck ramen. Both were really great choices. If you plan on eating here please be sure to make a reservation.More

Yes, on the patio but not inside the restaurant. The patio has a nice setting with plenty of seating including an outdoor fireplace.
