“Average pizza in a nice setting”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

This is a huge establishment in a quaint setting. We were quickly seated and service, for the most part, was attentive, though our server appeared distracted with perhaps too many tables. We ordered half chicken alfreado and half cowboy pizza. The combo of sauces and toppings was excellent. However, toppings were fresh, but not plentiful; the crust was just average. The pizza was ok, and certainly no better than most of our pizza places back home. I was expecting more from this place based on TA reviews.

“love it love it”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

we usually start by sharing the greek salad - big & crisp. Then we get slices (about $4 each) which is nice b/c we can try any of the pizzas without committing to a whole one. we've eaten there several times - no complaints

“About as overrated as they come”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Ok let me say that I grew up down the street from multiple of Chicago's top pizza joints so I may have a bit higher standards than some people but this pizza was below average and over priced. We had much better food at the little place by the holiday inn we stopped at on the way to beaver creek. Also that night our entire party got sick besides me and even though i'm reluctant to blame the pizza everyone else did. When I return to Vail this is one place I will never return to.

“Multiple visits, great place!”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

We ate two dinners at the Lionshead location, and one lunch at the Beaver Creek Village location over the course of our seven day trip. Truly outstanding…

At these meals, we ate a variety of food from Blue Moose… Custom Strombolis, custom pizza, lasagna, cheesy bread, salads, kids items… even fresh-baked cookies. ALL of the food we had was very, very good. Their locations are uber-convenient, especially the Lionshead place.

BUT, food is not my only criteria for a restaurant… To make it even better, the people were just great. We consistently had happy, efficient, fast waiters and waitresses, who were very focused on delivering customer service. At one meal, in Lionshead, we were seated very close to the kitchen, and I had a chance to watch (and listen) to the manager working with the kitchen and the waitstaff, keeping things moving for dine-in and take-out. Things worked like a Swiss clock, AND she was pleasant and smiling with her employees the whole time. Impressive.

We joined their Frequently Moose club (or whatever it’s called), even though it wasn’t clear what we would get for our loyalty or how we’d get it. That’s ok… we’ll return next year with our Frequently Moose card, and see what we earned.

Great place, full recommendation at both Vail Lionshead and Beaver Creek Village. The Gardiners will HAPPILY return!

“Great pizza and location”
Reviewed April 29, 2013

Blue Moose has great pizza and cold beers. Watch your kids ice skate while you have drinks in the warmth. The specialty pizzas are delicious. The wait times can be a little slow during rush dining times, but go early or late and you will get great service.
