Excellent service and good seafood and sushi. Excellent salmon salad is better with lemongrass dressing than champagne vinaigrette.

This is the only sushi bar in Crested Butte and it has an extensive menu with a great cold sake selection. Food was plentiful for the price. Tastes were widely varied and very good! Reservations helpful.

This is not your super traditional sushi joint, it's a more updated version of the same great food. They aren't offended if you want to try something that isn't on the menu (which is what I find annoying about traditional sushi restaurants). The wait staff...More

We've been looking for a restaurant or bar that serves prickly pear margaritas like the old Zuni Grill in San Antonio. We've found our spot!!

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.
