The red fish dinner was amazing, as were the fresh baked cookies! The long islands were good too! We'll be back next time we drive through Twin Lakes!

We were staying at the companion Twin Lakes Roadhouse Lodge across the street. Reservations were recommended when we contacted the staff. They are only serving dinner, but it is all elegant and tasty, with an extensive wine and cocktails list, even if my focus was...primarily on craft beers. Our second night we were joined by an old friend and his wife for an impromptu reunion, which may have stretched on a bit toward closing time. No one was hovering over us to move us along. Charm and warmth to accompany great food.More

I stopped in for lunch and was intrigued by an appetizer of “smoked chicken wings”. Buffalo-styled wings are one of my favorite foods, so I placed the order. The wings came out naked—no coating. They were huge, all the first joint of the wing. The...combination of the smoked meat with the Buffalo sauce was a match made in heaven! The six wings were enough for a meal, unless you were foolish enough to share.More

An unplanned lunch stop on the way up to Snowmass for a long weekend! Food was so good that we timed our return to make another stop. The dry rub wings were so good that i would have happily bought a jar of the seasoning...if they sold it. We tried a variety of food and everything was great!More

We came over for the weekend brunch and it did not disappoint. Grits were a real nice treat! Andy was so hospitable and welcoming. If you are heading over the pass, or looking for a nice morning drive I highly recommend stopping or head to...the Twin Lakes Inn! Cant wait to come back for lunch in the summer!More

I cannot give this Inn and Restaurant enough credit to justify how much we enjoyed this place. I wish I had pictures of our food and inside the restaurant. This place is amazing and the food and service were excellent. My family constantly talks about...how beautiful everything was and how great the people were. If you are looking for a place to step back in time then this place should be your destination.More

We stayed in the roadhouse lodge next-door for four nights and ate dinner every night at the twin lakes Inn Restaurant. Twin Lakes is a tiny little town and so often you find when there’s only one choice of restaurant it’s not very good. Not...so with this place! The food was excellent! The Inn is a historic building and we loved sitting by the fireplace. All the food is very fresh. The spicy trout was yummy, we enjoyed the hamburgers, the mushroom appetizer is fantastic, my husband said the salmon was delicious while I tried the elk sausage which was also great. We both had a chicken dish which was delicious, and I was ordering food to go for the next morning. They took care of me with my gluten-free diet restrictions. Very friendly atmosphere. And the owner was especially wonderful and generous with his time giving us ideas of things to do outdoors in the area. Highly recommend!More

We were out on a road trip with no destination and no set plan or reservation for the night. About 5:30 we found ourselves down at Twin Lakes and this little Inn had a room and an excellent restaurant. Andy, the manager, was super friendly...and professional. They're about to close for the winter in the next week or so. We had a nice room with pretty furnishings including some antique tables and dresser. Towels were good and thick and the bathroom was well stocked. I would definitely recommend this place in the future and would stay again if we are in the area.More

I would first say get a reservation. This is pretty much it in town. We had two great dishes - I had the ribeye cooked perfect with great flavor and my wife had the veggie pasta, also great.
