“Good pizza, terrible service”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

We went into the blue moose pizza place to sit and have some refreshments while listening to the jazz festival. The proximity to the jazz music was perfect for sitting back and enjoying, however the staff seemed unable to perform the simplest of tasks such as seating us at a table. We saw 3 large empty tables on the patio and requested to be seated there, but the hostess told us there was nothing available. We took another look and went back and asked again, receiving the same response. We did her job for her and told her that there were tables available outside and after much insisting she eventually let us through to be seated.

We sat down and ordered our pizza and we were sure we had requested the whole wheat crust. We were served a regular crust pizza and upon telling the waiter the mistake he simply told us that it was too late to change since it had been served. Quite disappointing, although the pizza was still incredibly tasty.

The happy hour specials and proximity to the music were the highlights of the place but I wouldn't go back again unless there wasn't busy event happening at the time.

“Great gourmet pizza -- dine in or take home”
Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

We had two delicious, different veggie-based pizzas. The crusts are thin yet pleasingly crisp-chewy. The toppings are gourmet-style, top quality. Happiness to go!

“Blue Moose Beaver Creek”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

This review is for the Blue Moose in Beaver Creek. We had the Lindsey Vonn signature pizza and it was great. She even donates part of the sales to a local charity. Our waiter was a very friendly young man.

“Kid friendly, jazz, & whole wheat crust”
Reviewed August 25, 2013

This restaurant was right by the jazz festival in the square so we could hear live music during our meal. We came here two nights because of its kid friendly atmosphere with crayons for drawing on the paper tablecloth, colorful pictures, and a giant blue moose statue. All food in Vail is expensive but we got a good size portion of salad and the calzone was enough for two. The basil vinaigrette was a great flavor. The pizza can be made with a whole wheat crust and we tried that the second night. We weren't disappointed at either meal.

“Outdoor seating!”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

Love sitting out on the patio and watching the goings on in Lionshead. Lunch special is a great less expensive option. Oh and the pizza....wonderful!
