I have passed by this restaurant a lot and always thought it looked interesting. The atmosphere is nice ...cafe and western shop. The food was good, but a bit over priced for the quality and experience. The service was fair ...had to ask for everything ...refills, sweetener, "go" boxes ...it wasn't terrible, just inattentive.

There are definitely better options in Telluride.

We were in search for a place to eat and have a cocktail while visiting Telluride. It was 2p there were only 2 filled tables in the entire place. We had a party of 11. Instantly the hostess seemed overwhelmed and went and chit chatted with the Bar Manager. We went to go sit in the Patio. Again they seemed very overwhelmed by our large party. We felt so unwelcome that we just walked out. I don't know who would turn away business like that. We were ready to eat and drink and enjoy ourselves. Our server and the restaurant as a whole lost out on a lot of money that day.

Terrible service! Our dinner (a salad and a sandwich) took 45min to arrive. When it did, it was wrong. I ordered a seared tuna sandwich and got the dinner version instead. It took another 15min to bring out the sandwich. We also ordered two glasses of red wine - from a selection of 6 choices. Our server repeatedly asked which ones we wanted and we had to point them out to him on the menu. The table next to us was complaining about the same issues. Unfortunately, for the chef, the food was great - but not worth the trouble!!!

Interesting location on the main drag, but located in the front of a western wear store that is open when the restaurant is. The dining area is small with only maybe sevn tables and a bar with ten or twelve seats. But the service is excellent and the food is good. And one can gaze out on to the goings on on busy Colorado Street. We liked it.

Ate here one of our first nights in Telluride and enjoyed it so much we came back 3 times!! We have been to Telluride on numerous occasions and this new restaurant was a most pleasant surprise. The weinersnitchel is outstanding and the Mixed Grill with Elk Sausage and Blue Cheese Topped Filet was a real treat. Not quite sure how you can make a BLT a gourmet delicacy but they managed to do it! What was as incredible as the food itself were the extremely reasonable prices. The food presentation is first class and the portions were more than generous. We have paid much more for much less in Telluride.The western atmosphere and upscale leather shop only adds to the overall experience. Can't wait to return on our next trip to Telluride!
