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.

We had lunch outside on a great sunny day! Great view on the runs and good people spotting location. The truffle fries were great. Service was also on the spot!

“Great location and food!”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

Right on the base of Ajax mountain! Love the bread and spread on your table before your meal. Great local beers. Staff is attentive and exceptional service!
Loved the french dip and macaroni and cheese.
I'm thinking you could not have a bad meal here!
A must while in Aspen!

“Desert”
Reviewed April 11, 2013

On the menu for desert they had a fondue and i have a gluten free diet and it was server with four items and I could only eat two. so I asked if I could order with the two and cut the price in half. They said no. This was the only place in Aspen that could not make it happen. Half is better than nothing. I don't get it.

“Crappy service”
Reviewed April 9, 2013

Rude, the outside bartender made me go inside to get my own beverage because she couldn't be troubled! I have been a patron the the Tavern for years, don't think I will be back anytime soon

“Great burger”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

Great burger, friendly waiters, great location at the gondola. Sometimes at "in" places, as Ajax Tavern is, the waiters are less interested in serving, and more interesting in being seen. But I was pleasantly surprised at the Tavern. Even though there is gray in my beard the waitress was attentive and very professional.
