“Friday Night At The Bar....”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2013

Ordered Nachos, server asked if wanted beef or chicken. I said beef. Got Nachos, started eating, no meat. Not just a little meat... no meat at all. Advised server, she said would you like another order? Said, no thanks. Also, at 8:50, two bartenders started taking up the bar top mats and floor mats, and cleaning. By 9:00, they had all the chairs stacked on the tables. There were still customers eating etc. I think this sends a message... "getting ready to close!!!" I asked the bartender if this was a slow night, she said yes. I said, do you get to close early if it is a very slow night? She said Yes. I don't mind a place closing at midnight, but I don't like to be having a beer, playing pool, and the place starts closing down at 9:00. This is my last trip to the Spur.

“Relaxing atmosphere and very clean!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2013

We were staying in nearby Palmer Lake and stopped here for dinner on a Saturday night. Very impressed with cleanliness and atmosphere of restaurant. There was lots of space to spread out and with 4 adults and 3 children under age 4, this made for a relaxing dinner. We sat inside but took a look at the outside patio, which looked awesome! Our local friends said they'd be back to hang out on the patio soon. No complaints on the food or service from anyone in our group. Worth a stop if you are looking for a relaxing place to eat.

“A Local Institution”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 20, 2013

I was a long time resident of Larkspur. The "Spur Inn" has been around for decades. I moved to Larkspur in the early 80's and it was there then. However it used to be in another building that was recently demolished. It used to be just a bar that also served food. Now it is a full restaurant and bar. Like others I often have the buffalo burger when I'm in town.

The food is good. The servers and bartenders work very hard. There are lots of regulars. The employees like to get to know the customers. This place is an institution. The setting and ambiance are wonderful.

“Good for what it is.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

This is a local hangout. The food is ok as are the prices. There is occasionally live entertainment. The drink prices can't be beat.

“Many Empty Chairs”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

They sure invite a lot of empty tables and chairs to this place. I have eaten here twice, plus stopped-by once, wanted to give it another chance, but no more. This is a very large restaurant in a tiny town and I have never seen more than a few people here. Saw same waitress every time. Bored, disinterested service and so-so bland food served near room temp.
