We hiked up to this restaurant and enjoyed a delicious lunch on the patio. The weather was perfect and the view was incredible. Our server was pretty good but seemed rush. Won't keep us from going back again.

Beuautifully located in valley surrounded by stream and mountains. Rustic interior and gracious service with well prepared game, beef, trout and lamb. Our visit was in summer so out door deck was great for cocktails. High prices help pay for setting and service.

Call the restaurant. Like many places in Aspen, they are seasonal. A lot of places close mid to end of October until December.
