Description: We re-open on May 23rd. Since 1992 Garfinkel’s (or, "Garfs" as it is locally known) has been a cornerstone in Lionshead (VAIL) for both tourists and locals alike. Our sunny deck provides the best après ski, sun catching, and overall late spring and summer experience. Over the years some things have changed but the feeling of Garfinkel’s as a classic ski town sports bar/grill atmosphere remains the same. Seasons pass by, memories are created, good times are had, and lifelong friends are made. The walls inside tell the stories of the past with photos of patrons, athletes, and events gone by. You could one day be one of them. So come on down to pay us a visit, relax, eat, drink, enjoy our atmosphere and become part of the Garfinkel’s story.

Don't miss this gem the food was excellent, prices good. We had the fish and chips perfect to eat out on the deck with a beer . Nice end to the day.

We are in Vail for a conference This is day two and we have struck out on dinner two nights in a row. Tonight we had high hopes of getting a decent meal at a somewhat reasonable prices. Instead we found ourselves in the midst of an epic fail. It took about 12 minutes after sitting we got a chance to place a drink order, which came out quickly. Then it was another very long wait until our food order got taken, We ordered two appetizers along with our four entrees.After an interminable wait, watching other parties both order and receive food, three of us got our entrees and our fourth was told that he needed to order something else. We mentioned our starters and got the one but not the other. Three of us ate while the fourth waited. We wanted that other appetizer, but never got it. About fifteen minutes after we were done eating we finally got the attention of one of the numerous waiters to get a manager. We laid out our complaints and the manager ended up comping us one entree and a dessert to go as well as slashing our bill by half. Epic fail service although they tried to make up for it.

Was great service, food was good and recommend with families or large group. Nice view. Recommend if needing a casual meal and not too expensive for Vail.

The food is good and enjoy sitting on their patio. Great atmosphere and prices are affordable. Let them know if you are a local and they will give you a "Locals" discount! Service has been great at every visit.

great location - right by the Lionshead gondola. Their drinks are cheap & strong. My husband got a Jack & coke (only $5) & said it was strong. I got a cosmo - only $7. Maybe they have spring pricing but they didn't act like it was a special. Seems like the kind of place locals go. we didn't eat there but they did have a huge menu.
