Reasonable food at reasonable prices. It is invariably noisy so not the ideal place for a quiet meal.

This is probably my favorite restaurant in Vail. They are so laid back and their food is so good! Whatever we get we are always pleased. We had burgers, steak, stew, chicken tenders, chili and they do not disappoint. It's a big plus when the kids and adults can agree.

My wife and I ate a late lunch here on our last day in Vail. At the time there were only a few other patrons. We were met with friendly service and our food was delivered pretty fast. I had a burger and my wife had the wings which we both really enjoyed. There are a number of TV's around... More

Red Lion chilli burger - excellent. Sit outside in the sunshine with a burger and a craft beer and watch the world go by. Great pub food, friendly, fast service. Gets really busy apres ski, so get down early for the best seats.

This place is awesome, loved the nachos and the margaritas were delicious even on a cold day. The only downside was that this place was seriously hard to get in to! Lots of live music at the venue so try and come early to get a spot or run down and put your name in an hour earlier than you... More

Red Lion is one of the original places from Vail's early days. Popular after ski hangout. Good service and good hearty food. Accommodating to the special diet needs kids have including a gluten free menu. Won't break the budget like most Vail restaurants.

Awesome commons man bar in the village. The nachos are a must alone with your beer. Can be very busy.

More just to see the end of the apres ski scene and wow was it a scene! Fun to just hang out at the bar, but FYI that the hostess staff really wants to seat you at a table or directs to you a specific portion of the bar for your space. It seemed weird, but then we understood with... More
