Lovely atmosphere - delicious food. We stopped in Rawlins for the night and looked up restaurants, the reviews on this one were excellent and it did not disappoint!! We ate the chicken dumplings, beef medallions in red wine demiglaze, wild mushroom ravioli and chicken fettuccine. All were terrific!! This is a don't miss 👍👍

We purchased this meal at a benefit auction and will certainly return when future trips take us through Rawlins. My barbecue rib eye with shrimp was excellent and I can't wait to have another! We enjoyed having a table and room to ourselves and highly recommend this unique and historic restaurant to others.

Our family of five had dinner last night. I had tilapia and shrimp batonrouge. It was scrumptous, creamy sauce was very good. My sister in law had spicy roast duck. She said it was amazing, the best duck she has ever eaten. The guys had regular and blackened rib eye, the steak were excellent and melt in your mouth. The... More

Badly overcooked steak. Companion ordered well done; I ordered medium, and both were cinders. Cook got in his joke, I guess. Service inattentive at best. Based on other reviews, maybe they deserve another chance, but not by me. When in Rawlins, I would stick to McDonald's.

On a recommendation from our hotel, we managed to get into Aspen House for an early dinner without a wait. (People arriving later had more difficulty getting seated, so reservations are recommended.) American and Asian dishes are included on the menu, and on the basis of our choices, it seems that both varieties are offered in hearty portions with robust... More

We went to this restrauant at the advice of the hotel clerk where we were staying in Rawlins. Well we were in Wyoming, what better than a steak? The restrauant is located in an old house down town Rawlins. Not much to look at from the outside. On the inside it was old Victorian furnished into dining area. There is... More

When in Rawlins at supper time,this is the place. Go early or stand in line. Aspen House is in an old house with somewhat small rooms. Our meals have always been cooked just as ordered, service is fast and friendly.

As "a walk in" we had to wait for a table, the wait was well worth it! Our table was in a small room on what we Brits call the first floor, that will be the second fools to you, it is a great table for a group of up to six, very private. The service was really good and... More

The food was excellent. I was looking for a good steak and found it. The steak was cooked the way I ordered it which is no small feat because it's hard to get a steak cooked right, but they nailed it. The menu also offered 2 salads along with pasta choices. The chicken fettuccine Alfredo was awesome and the twist... More
