After 6 weeks on the road , this has to be the best place I've eaten at . The coffee was great . The calamari and the mushroom caps were real good. And the Chicken Valentino was awesome . The atmosphere was excellent. And the staff were the Best . This place takes first place . 😃

On-site restaurant at the Aspen Inn. Very good food and service. The lounge was well-stocked. Relaxing atmosphere after a long day's drive.

Decent food and good service however the prices keep going up and the portions keep getting smaller. The steak sandwich most notably. In the neighborhood of a $5 increase! Most chefs I know also refrain from using copious amounts of salt to season thier dishes. Its like more of a mask for the lack of flavour and quality ingredients.
