Got to admit this place is good. Pretty pricey for what youngest, but it's CB, what did I expect. Sashimi was fresh and delicious. Great beer, wine and mixed drink choices. Sushi was really well prepared and fresh

Wonderful food and service. Unique place. We had 12 family members, so we were seated upstairs in loft area. Waitress and helpers couldn't have been nicer. Really great meal out.

Great place to try with a group. There were ten of us so we tried all kinds of things. The rolls were delicious, and their famous dynamo shrimp were a hit. Service was not all it could have been, but pretty typical for CB.

Worth a visit and have been a few times the past few years. Love the salmon salad with Asian dressing. Roasted Brussels sprouts as an appetizer tasty. The other couple had fish and chips. A bit too much breading. Good vibe and local spot. Can't...More

Yes unfortunately with sushi being made to order and with only having 3 chefs to prepare we have to limit our happy hour to the bar only- otherwise it would back up our chefs. It's hard to explain but there's a very good reason why...More

As the owner and general manager of Lils I would like to thank you first of all for the feedback- with that being said as far as our happy hour policy we have very legitimate reasons for only allowing it at the bar. If we...More

We are known as having the highest quality fish in town. Our fish is flown in 6 days a week within 24 hours from the docks. We offer a nightly happy hour every night at the bar from 5:30-6:30. In the summer we have a beautiful patio with heaters...and soon a fire pit table! We are a casual restaurant with a warm friendly charm, just like our town of Crested Butte. Private parties available and reservations are recommended but not needed.
