My husband and I visited Glenwood Springs for our Anniversary and stopped here for dinner. The staff couldn’t have been more kind. It was a small yet comfortable restaurant. The food was absolutely outstanding. We had the duck appetizer, chicken and steak. Everything was excellent....More

The dining room isn't large (though for summer, there is a very large outdoor space with a fire-pit), so get there early (5:30) or later (after 8) because towns like Glenwood tend to roll up the sidewalks early, and we were told "no reservations" (though...More

Great place! Great service...everyone working here seems to be very happy giving it great vibe. Lots of amazing menu option and delicious food. We had the halibut special, lobster ravioli, crab dip, beet salad... so much more to come back and try.

We visited CO Ranch House based on TripAdvisor recommendations. This is a premium restaurant so it’s not inexpensive. With that said our entrees we’re prepared to perfection. The staff were friendly and accommodating. Special requests were cheerfully accepted. We enjoyed our visit so much we...More

We ate there recently and they offer full meals (steaks, ribs) and could definitely accomodate a party of 10. Pricing is $$$, but worth every penny, IMO, as food was fantastic, fresh and plentiful.
