“A bit disappointing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2014

First, let me say that while the skiing is great, the nightlife is a bit disappointing at Copper Mountain. So while, CB Grille may be one of the top restaurants in town, it benefits greatly from its location and captive snow visitors.

We were there on a Friday night in late January in a rather large group. We picked the restaurant based on its rating in trip advisor, although our first choice would have been to travel to Breckenridge or Frisco, but we were unable to get reservations.

A couple of people ordered the elk steak, which at $45 is the most expensive entree on the menu. Both ordered the meat medium rare, both got medium well. The steaks were returned and the second pass was much better. Perhaps an acquired taste, but the elk was not as flavorful as a beef or bison steak. Others who had the ribeye steak were happy with their choice.

Service was somewhat average. While we were introduced to our two servers, we didn't really see one of them the rest of the night and the servers were somewhat random. As a result a soup order was forgotten as was a coffee. Nothing big.

Atmosphere is very nice with large window views of the ski village.

CB Grille is probably going to be your most elegant choice at Copper Mountain, but it's hard to believe that it would survive if forced to compete with more options.

“Not as good as expected”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

On the surface, the ambiance was nice, and the prices seemed reasonable for a ski resort. However, the service was awful and the food was mediocre at best. My fiancé got the elk, the pricest item on the menu, and it was so tough it was nearly inedible. My pork chop was extremely undercooked. The service was slow and the waiter was inattentive.

Our family ate here after a long day of skiing. The atmosphere was perfect, the menu had a variety of options, and decent service.

“Date Night and Girls Night Out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 13, 2014

In March 2013 my husband and I enjoyed a date night while our boys were at Kids Night Out. Wine, steaks and dessert. We have eaten at CB's the last two ski trips and will return again.

The month before, I appreciated the bar staff the night I went with my girlfriends. Two guys (older) were trying to pick up our group of five girlfriends, we didn't find out what the night would have held. The bar staff was keeping an eye on us, which I'm sure they have seen before with these guys. Creepy! We gals got an excellent bottle of Champagne though!

“Best dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

We found our dining at CB Grille to be the best of our Copper Mountain stay. The food was perfectly prepared and nicely presented. We felt price was very reasonable for what we had. It was worthy of a repeat and we went a second night. It is also attractively decorated. Small glitch was hostess forgot to tell server we were there in a back room with the fireplace and we had to remind them so we could get service. Other small issue was our credit card charge did not match our bill (it was higher) and had to be done a second time after we caught it. These things did not happen on our second visit.
