Description: Say "apres ski" and most people picture something strikingly similar to Ajax Tavern - glamorous yet easy. Its sun-drenched, mountainside patio can be seen from halfway up the mountain - a simple target for lunch or cocktails. Arrive, and let the people-watching begin, there's no better seat in town. Located right next to the Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Tavern is the hub for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. The Tavern comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. If you go no further on the menu, try the truffle fries and Ajax double cheeseburger - they earned their reputation.

Ski in to your table and be treated as if you are the only person in the restaurant. Great Staff and reasonable. Super human watching location even if you do not admit to enjoying such a pursuit !! Fondu is the best in the State of Colorado.

The food is excellent and the people watching is even better. The truffle fries are to die for.... and you might die from them if you eat too many. Divine wine selection!

Yes. If you love fried, it's worth spending $17 for the truffle fries. But I prefer the fresh salads and the baguette with yummy garlic/articoke hummus dip. The trout dinner was large, moist and complemented with a perfectly light sauce. Other folks in our group raved about the cripsy chicken entree. Reasonably priced wines as a pleasant surprise. Great location!

If your going to Aspen - Ajax tavern is a must... When ever you say Aspen - Truffle Fries come to my mind! You may think you have had these fries elsewhere, BUT none are this good. Really hungry? Try the Lamb Bologense or just have a hamburger, you can't go wrong here. And who can ignore the mountain view... A glass of wine and truffle fries, now that's an afternoon delight.

Great tavern right at the foot of Ajax Mountain. My wife and I ate there twice for lunch and I had the hamburger each time. Absolutely incredible. My wife had the soup and salad both days and she loved it. The view is fantastic. If you are in Aspen make sure to stop here for lunch. The only downside is it is a little pricey. $18 for a burger and fries is a little steep but it is Apsen afterall.
