“Try the Kale salad”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

The service was great, we had the split the kale salad, cheese burger and hand cut fries. The kale salad was delicious and we kept trying to figure out what was in it. After asking the waitress if there was cayenne in it, she told us all of the ingredients. We will try to make it at home sometime. The crushed peanuts were a nice texture added to the salad. The cheeseburger was great too. A little rare for my tastes, but delicious. The fries were served wtih a couple of different dipping sauces and were good too.

“Delicious lunch in Aspen!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

Spent the day in beautiful Aspen and stopped here for lunch based on the Tripadvisor rating. definitely a must if you are in the Aspen/Snowmass area. We had the burger for lunch and it was just perfect! Service is great and the atmosphere adds to the overall experience.

“Good food!”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

Recommended by one of the staff at the Limelight Hotel.
2 min walk. Important on cold evenings!
We sat at the bar, had a cocktail and our meal. Food was fresh and good value. Bar tender was chatty and friendly.

“Best lunch in Aspen”
Reviewed February 28, 2014

We visited The Whitehouse Tavern on 2 occasions during our recent trip to Aspen. This is a fantastic place for lunch. There is a great atmosphere in the place. The cocktails are great and the food is absolutely delicious with very generous portion sizes. The place has a beautiful fit out that has respected the history of this lovely building. Staff are friendly and efficient. It can get really crowded so you may have to wait for a table. We had a large group and tried most things on the menu. All were excellent.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed February 27, 2014

Read the reviews of this restaurant before visiting and had high expectations. They have a small food menu but everything I ate was top notch. I had the simple chicken sandwich and fries which turned out to be one of the best chicken sandwiches I had ever eaten. Fries were fresh cut and were salted the correct amount.

Beer selection was plentiful with lots of local selections.

We arrived just before they closed, but the wait staff never rushed us and we felt very comfortable eating at our own speed.

Would definitely eat here again and try other items on the menu.
