If you are EVER in Basalt or passing through don't overlook Butche's Seafood Shack, which is located in the corner gas station parking lot. You can order your food, either a small, medium or large lobster which is cooked fresh right there and then sit at one of the surrounding outdoor picnic tables. Butch makes the most amazing lobster bisque - it's to die for. The atmosphere was so much fun with one of Basalt's local residents playing music there and he was quite enjoyable. There is a liquor store next to the gas station and you are allowed to go get a cold beer or a bottle of wine and open it right there to have with your meal. We actually sat for some time on a tree trunk just enjoying our wine and talking with Butch. He's such a great guy with a great place that I wanted to make sure to get the word out as there was nothing about it on trip advisor until now. Another wonderful thing about this place is "Ray's Pies". Ray is a local guy who makes the most delicious pie and sells it by the slice at Butche's. The local atmosphere here made our visit to Basalt something to remember and we'll definately be going back to visit Butche's Seafood Shack :)
