Description: An on-mountain family tradition for 34 yearsGwyn's High Alpine has consistently been voted North America's best on-mountain restaurant by Ski, Skiing, and Powder Magazine. Vanity Fair writes that Gwyn's is not to be missed when you visit Aspen and Snowmass. For the past 34 years, visitors and locals alike have returned to experience the creative cuisine, with menu items from the Alps to the Pacific Rim. Kick back on the deck with an Angus burger, enjoy a steaming bowl of Brunswick chicken stew in our cafe, or welcome the opportunity to take off your boots, slip on some slippers, and tempt your palate with a three-course meal at Gwyn's. No meal is complete without a bottle of wine from Gwyn and George's wine cellar, which boasts an impressive collection accumulated over the past three decades. No matter which of our many options you choose, we promise exceptional food and service at our family restaurant.The dining room opens at 9 a.m. for breakfast. Lunch seating begins at 11:30 a.m. and ends at 2:30 p.m. Get George's "No Bull" Snow Report and daily specials every morning at 7:30 a.m. on Facebook.

“Excellent late afternoon lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2013

Be ready to ski down after lunch here. The service is excellent and the menu is very diverse with interesting combinations. This is definitely a place for a relaxing lunch with someone special or business clients. Nothing on the mountain is inexpensive - so be prepared to open your wallet! It is worth at least one stop per trip. The food and service make it a very relaxing lunch place that you may want to just ski in after such a relaxing, wine filled lunch!

“Great on mountain restaurant”

This is one of the local's favorite on mountain restaurants. If you want to look like a local, eat at Gwyn's. The tuna melt is one of our favorites!

“Expensive!!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

There were a lot of food choices here which was a plus however the prices were outrageous. Could not get out of there without spending over $100 at lunch for my family of 5.

“The Best Mountain Food and Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

Every time I go to Gwyn's High Alpine I have the best time. The service is amazing and you can't beat the food. They put so much effort into providing organic healthy options. Plus if you want something that isn't on the menu they will go out of their way to try and make it for you. It has such a family friendly atmosphere with the owners walking around all day making sure everyone is happy.

“I will give this place a miss in future! Not a good experience.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2013

This place has one of the most convoluted and confusing buffet systems I have seen anywhere. The atmosphere was similar to waiting in line for security at the airport! The staff shout at you and tell you that you are going in the wrong direction and starting at the wrong place, it has been a long time since I have seen such rude staff and what's with all the shouting at the customers? Seriously, some customer service training and a more 'user friendly' self-service system would make a huge difference to this place, I will avoid in the future.
