We stopped by the bar after skiing upon recommendation. What an awesome view, amazing service, good drinks, and good French fries!

At 10,500 feet where can you find such a place? Upscale, beautiful bar and restaurant with a knock your socks off view. The drink were well prepared and the food was lovely too. A must do while in Telluride.

We had a wonderful dinner with friends. The food and the service were both good. I would recommend making a reservation way in advance if you want to have a chance to eat here.

I was very unfairly skeptical that Allred's could live up to its reputation given it's mountain-top location (I expected good views and mediocre food and it was totally the opposite). Our group of 8 was truly wowed. Our telluride dining experiences over two different trips have been fairly lackluster overall but this restaurant stands far out amongst its local peers.... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant. We visited two years ago when we were in the area and again this year while getting some ski time on the slopes. The restaurant was as good as I had remembered. Of course, the location is very interesting at the top of a mountain between Telluride, CO and Mountain Village, CO.... More

Would give it five stars without the view. Fine dining with just the right amount of laid back ski area vibe. Great wine list, knowledgeable sommelier, and the General Manager made our night free ice cream for our smartly dressed dreesed 8 year old.

From the drinks at the bar, including the lobstee bisque to the amazing views from out window side table it was a great meal. Everything we had was skillfully prepared and executed. Will continue to go back when we visit Telluride.

Through the years we have come here for celebrations of varying sorts. This year was a birthday. The food and service was impeccable as always. My ribeye was cooked and seasoned to perfection. The roasted chicken was likewise delicious. But the surprise was the roasted cauliflower soup!!! It was astonishing. Don't pass it up. We are never disappointed with Allred's.... More

What a view. Spectacular. Clear night and view the bright orange Moon plus the lights of Telluride below. Now for the ambiance of Allred's. Take the Free Gondola from the Town of Telluride or the free gondola from Mountain Village to Allred's located just inside the Gondola Building. Take the elevator to the Dining Room. Check in at the reception... More
