We enjoyed our supper here. The selection was varied. We ate a chicken Marsala, the trout, and the salmon special. All meals were spot on. Again, great atmosphere for relaxed dining. Make reservations because it does fill up.

Thank you for dining with us during your stay! And it's helpful that you included the suggestion about making reservations. The summer nights are our busiest and the fire marshal's seating limit is important for everyone's safety.

The food was really first rate. Everything was very fresh. The sauces were amazing, you can tell the kitchen staff are true professionals. We had a reservation, so we got a window table and could look out at the view while we ate. Our only...More

Nice Colorado cabin atmosphere with mediocre food. Trout and rice pilaf were dry. My husband had pasta primavera which was also only fair. Will go again tomorrow night to try something else. Wait staff friendly and helpful.
