Was in Granby, Colorado for several days and this restaurant was recommended by my Brother-in-law who recently moved there. 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

Great location at the end of town. Fabulous meal, best in town from what we experienced. Small menu, but well diversified with unique options.

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...

This was a to be a special celebration of a 40th anniversary on a gift certificate from our children. We were just done with our appetizer and finishing our salads when the electricity went out. Our server, who had been unfriendly to start with, told us that it would be 30 minutes. We waited 45 minutes and the server returned... More

Good time on the back patio...black berry margaritas and watching the kids scramble on the rocks in the river. Chill lodge and restaurant.

Rapids combines good food, great service and a beautiful view for a great stop for lunch or dinner. We shared a smoked salmon appetizer that was flat out great. Smoked just enough to add to the salmon flavor instead of overpowering it. It was served with a soft cheese and plenty of tasty crackers. A great app, and portion perfect... More

We had the grilled chicken on croissant sandwich. The chicken was very tender and tasty. The bag of potato chips may not have been the best choice to accompany this sandwich. Fries would have been better but not offered. Sitting by the window looking out at the water tumbling over the rocks was peaceful.
