Great place to people watch, enjoy a game and get down on some grub. Good mix of locals/tourists. Live music. Good beer on tap and good food!

“Famous apres ski stop”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2014

The Red Lion is a standard stop in Vail. It is very busy apres ski and our beeper did not work. Then we were not seated in a table large enough to seat us all. The nachos and wings were good and the waiter tried hard. Pretty loud and overall our experience was good.

“Average pub fare”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2014

Red lion delivers average pub fare in the heart of vail village. Location makes this place convenient. Food is ok and reasonably priced. The chili is better than average and usually what I always get when I eat there.

“Perfect lunch spot just off the slopes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2014

Stopped in the Red Lion for lunch after a morning of skiing Vail with my wife. The atmosphere is fantastic, it's a perfect little après-ski spot. My wife had the red chili and it was amazing. It is a pretty generous amount, thank goodness, as I wanted more than a taste. I had the Hickory Burger and it was very good. The burger itself had great flavor and was cooked perfectly. Fries were very good too, probably overlooked, but good nonetheless. Prob want to get there early for lunch as it's popular spot.

“Solid Lunch Choice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2014 credit card Amex Card Member Review

On our first afternoon in Vail we had lunch at an outdoor table at the Red Lion. Great for people watching and very good food. We especially liked the vegetarian options. The best veggie burger and veggie sandwich we had during our stay in Vail.
