Only place open on Sunday while waiting for a flight out of Yampa. Hmmmm. We got to enjoy the smoke from the lunches of the two other tables while waiting for our order to be cooked. Place desperately needs better ventilation to keep the smoke...out of the eating area. Food was average at best, service was disinterested and price was OK.More

Visited based on 4 Star reviews. They are in the middle of transition to an "expanded menu" and apparently staff. We all ordered burgers, which were quite good. The menu had only the name of burgers, so we needed to look on line for descriptions...as wait staff could not tell us. The overall decor is not inviting, but does lend a casual air. There is no dessert at the current time. Cannot think of anything else to say as everything is just ok.More

Found this gem online, I was pleasantly surprised how roomy this upper apartment is. There was two bedrooms, living room, kitchen. After previously being cooped up in a hotel with three kids, coming here offered enough space for everyone to spread out. We got some...groceries and made dinner in the kitchen. It was so nice to have dishes and utensils provided to save a little money eating out. For being above a bar it was relatively quiet at night. I went down to the bar to get more towels and washclothes but only bar cloths were provided. The one bedroom was a queen bed. The matress was a bit dilapidated my boyfriend and I rolled to the center because there was no support in the matress. Overall tho this place was secure clean and we would definitely come back to the lodge. We didnt get a chance to try the bar food but the bartender was super friendly.More

While camping at Yampa River State Park, we found this cute restaurant. Main menus is burgers and three kinds of fries. We enjoyed the sweet potato fries and onion rings with ranch dressing. Fun atmosphere and dogs are allowed on the patio.

We were camping in Yampa State Park about 3 miles from Hayden and for dinner this is the only game in town. How great to walk in and be greeted by Shelley (barkeep/waitress/co-owner). We ended up being well taken care of and enjoyed a sublime...pulled-pork sandwich made with prize-winner at local auction and smoked by the restaurant chef. BBQ sauce excellent! These new proprietors have owned the place since early 2018 and are working hard to provide exceptional pub fare, burgers etc. Excellent all-around evening!More

We have been to this restaurant several times for casual dining. Every time the service and food were very good. They have great burgers, but my favorite is the fish basket. The quality,quantity and service was great.

Have lived in the area for several years and used to love going to the Hiway for a burger. Sadly the service has gone downhill, prices have increased, food quality is deplorable. Stopped recently to find it closed during posted open hours, figured I'd give...it another try to be told only allowed 3 drinks. Sad to see a once must stop in Hayden turn into a place to avoid.More

Stayed here with the family one night in the two bedroom unit above the bar/restaurant. This is a small three unit motel that caters to the winter hunting troops that come through, but we were glad we drove the 20 minutes out from Steamboat to...stay here. Bucolic small town on the rail line. We had dinner here as well, and the food and service was great. Not super cheap as four dinners and a couple of beers ran $97 with a tip. The small team here is really working hard and the quality of the product showed. If you are headed west toward dinosaur monument and need a place to stay you cannot go wrong. South of Hayden are the flats area with great hiking, fishing, 4X4 . And did I say its NOT Steamboat springs touristyMore

I appreciate a restaurant trying to support local ranchers and farmers. Great food is an additional plus. Good service seals the deal. We usually go for the burgers, but everything I've tried is delicious. THIS is the place to go in Hayden! With lots of...beers to choose from on tap, most everyone is sure to be satisfied!More

This restaurant has changed drastically over the last several months. All of the good wait and kitchen staff have quit or "been fired". My wife and I visited during the dinner hour a couple of weeks ago and ordered 2 salads, 2 appetizers, and 2...drinks...$72.00. The food was undercooked. The "daily special" has been some variation of "turkey" since Thanksgiving. We will be spending our money elsewhere.More

Google the website for info on the upstairs rooms. They were completely remodeled last year and are fantastic!
