While visiting the area of Grand Lake this past week, we chose to dine here after a recommendation from a Granby local. The lodge restaurant is charmingly small and cozy, with a rustic touch and setting alongside a beautiful mountain creek. Our server was just as charming, being careful to apologize for the delay in reserved seating time and thanking... More

Dining experience was very pleasant. We had reservations ( recommended) and were seated at a table overlooking the rapids. Service was excellent with a waitress who was able to accommodate some special needs of mine due to a recent stroke. Food was excellent. I placed the pricing at mid-range based on the cost food at other restaurants in the area.... More

We had a great window table and the creek outside is lit up at night for a great view. Service was good - food was outstanding. Fair price for the meal. Good wine selection.

This is a fine dining restaurant in a very small town in the Rockies--very unexpected. It ranks with the best meals we have had anywhere, and the view of the rapids is a bonus.

We had a party of 4 and each person ordered something different from their limited, but really good selections, menu. The environment was great overlooking the rapids (thus the name), the service from our waitress was excellent...very attentive to our every... More

We're locals & have been here several times because the ambiance ~ old-style lodge, dark & woodsy inside... with windows overlooking the beautiful little Tonahutu River ~ is peaceful & relaxing. This time we came for dinner, sat at a window, enjoyed the excellent service (unusually, the same waitresses have worked here for years). The crab hushpuppy appetizer was very... More

We went with some friends who were visiting, and hoped for a nice dinner. I knew this place was on the pricier side, but, I had hoped atleast we would have a nice dinner at the cost. Nope. I ordered the Colorado Pecan Crusted Bass, which was ok, but it was smothered in a fruity sauce I could not figure... More

We have dined at this restaurant many times in the past and it has been great with a great atmosphere. At our last visit the menu had lost a few great dishes and the personal were a bit sloppy for our tastes. It is still good but we would not rate it in the great category. Perhaps it was just...
