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 ate here twice during our trip and had a fab meal both times. The service was great and so was the food/wine. We took our 3 young children and felt very comfortable doing so. The live music was a nice addition to the evening.

if your don't go here at least for lunch you will miss out on the best in Aspen......new management makes this the best food in Aspen for lunch and while I haven't had the dinner , that must be as good or better....very reasonably priced and extremely prompt and courteous service

I loved the Tavern! It is located right at the bottom of Apsen mountain beside the gondola. The food is fantastic! Make sure you sit inside and go often as their whole menu is great. The fondu is delicious, and try as many of their daily specials as possible.

Stopped here for lunch since it's right at the base of the Gondola. The food was great, but the service was possibly the worst I have ever seen. And the table next to me was treated worse. It took 20+ min for them to get water and a napkin.
