“Great service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

When we arrived, the server let us know that there was a limited menu as they would be closing for the season in a few days. The food was great; the server pleasant and for a "limited" menu, there was still a great offering!

“Reliable and local”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2012

We come to Crested Butte every winter and summer. As our condo is on the mountain (as opposed to in the town of Crested Butte) we often get an easy meal at "The Av" as it is known to the locals who frequent the place. The food is reliably decent - not fine dining, but hearty and you can get some healthy salads as well as really good pizza and fish and chips. The servers always seem to be friendly. It's a good family place. As some have noted, on an off night sometimes the wait is longer than one would like, but there is always good people watching here to pass the time. Not handicap accessible.

“Surprising and reliably good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

Breakfasts and great lunches. When you need energy from skiing or biking, this place does not disappoint. Excellent and healthy grilled chicken sandwich. Great burgers. Breakfasts are varied and well-prepared and satisfying. We rely on this place.

“Pleasantly surprised”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012 via mobile

My husband and I got into Mt. Crested Butte a bit late for a small town, we were hungry and didn't expect much. When I asked what the soup was and was told tomato with bacon and blue cheese I was a little put off. My husband decided to try it and was very glad he had, he really liked it and even I tried some. We also ordered a chicken sandwich with red pepper aoili and it was extremely tasty. Overall good food and glad we went.

“This restaurant is not handicap accessible”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Warning! Parking for this place is not accessible to the front door, down a slope and worse yet back up the hill to your car. Steps into the restaurant and more steps inside depending on where you sit or if you need the rest rooms.
Fish & Chips was excellant as was the Reuban, but do to the non-accessible access we cannot give them a high rating.

It is an embarrassment to me that our building is so non ADA compliant. I only lease the building. We try our best (including catering multiple events for our neighbors the Adaptive Sports Center) to accommodate any and every person or persons that would like to try our restaurant. I will take it up with the landlord.
Thank you, todd
