We went there to celebrate a wonderful event- our daughter's birthday and were not disappointed. The ambiance was excellent, the food delicious and well presented. Not inexpensive but the value was there. The service was friendly and competent. Would recommend and return.

After reading some less-than-stellar reviews, we were pleased to find that the service was actually very good and attentive here. The food was ample, and the mainstream menu offered something for everyone in the group. The fish and chips had a very crispy batter coating, the hamburgers were large and juicy. I can't say that the experience was outstanding, set apart from other restaurants, but I think it is a good and reliable place to go based upon our meal. We were happy and would go back.

We had a great meal here with another couple. The atmosphere is very nice and the food and service are excellent. Indoor bar is also available to stop in for a drink.

Called the restaurant spoke to Hunter. Told him we would be there just short of 10pm (closing time) and asked if they would seat us. He said absolutely, no problem. I took a 25.00 Uber ride there to walk in the door at 9:56 and to be told the chef was gone. I told the bartender we spoke to Hunter. She said he told her but the chef left. Took another Uber home for 25.00. Waste of 50.00 to be lied to yet again by a restaurant that doesn’t actually stay open until they say they stay open. Your closing time should be posted as the last seating you take or when the kitchen closes.

I recently dined at Aspen first solo, and then with my husband. I ordered a salmon dish over. Bed of spiral vegetables encased in an absolutely delicious sauce. The vegetable noodles were crisp and full of flavor as a result of the sauce. Then, the salmon was cooked to perfection. Our waitress inquired as to the desired doness and the salmon arrived to our exact specifications!

My husband is a fussy eater and he raves about the entree. Ive’d dined here in other occasions and it is consistently delicious and fresh. Forgot to mention that recipes are very creative. Also the restaurant is nicely designed and comfortable. Can’t wait to go back!
