This is a resort but their restaurant and bar area has a great fireplace in it (of course) and that area, outside the actual restaurant, is dog friendly. It's got great soaring ceilings and leather furniture. We were all tired from hiking bridal veil falls, so to sit INSIDE together and have some great red wine and a tasty cheese... More

The food was very good. They were short staffed and our waitress seemed overwhelmed. They also had take out service which was very good too.

Small restaurant, menu has poor choices and service is terrible. Food was sent back frequently by diners as it was not prepared correctly.

Really enjoyed the view at The View, as well as $5 burger. Tom gave us great service. He is friendly and charming, plus very witty.

We went for lunch. The facility is nice but small. To be fair, the power outage in the morning probably impacted the restaurant. They were completely out of chicken. The food we had was good; our waitress apologetic for the issues we had. All in all, a nice place and we would give them another try.

We had a few power outages in Telluride this year. They really do make restaurant service difficult. Thanks for visiting us. More

We had breakfast here a few days while staying, the food was generally good and freshly prepared the service somewhat slow. We only went once for the evening, I would say this is not a destination for eating but probably just for drink, the dining experience was below average many better restaurants in Mountain Village or Telluride with similar prices

Sorry to here you were not impressed. We try very hard to make everyone feel at home. This is a very laid back place, we try not to rush. We also don't want to be slow. Come try us again soon. More
