Description: Say "apres ski" and most people picture something strikingly similar to Ajax Tavern - glamorous yet easy. Its sun-drenched, mountainside patio can be seen from halfway up the mountain - a simple target for lunch or cocktails. Arrive, and let the people-watching begin, there's no better seat in town. Located right next to the Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Tavern is the hub for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. The Tavern comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. If you go no further on the menu, try the truffle fries and Ajax double cheeseburger - they earned their reputation.

Great people watching, but don't come here for the food or the service...cuz you'll be disappointed in both.

if you can snag a table outside on a sunny afternoon, this is the place to be and be seen. Nice little apres ski menu, have the burger special which includes a beer or the chicken pate (fois gras like!). Tomato soup is too tangy even with the grilled cheese side.

The food is decent, and the location (at the base of the gondola) is great...but most of the people there have atrocious attitudes. Not everybody, I should add. But a great many of the hostesses (and some of the servers) are so unpleasant -- and so unconcerned with their patrons -- that it greatly compromises the experience. Go across the way to Il Mulino, instead.

It is Aspen and the prices are high - but this was a really great cheeseburger. My wife had the tomato soup & cheese sandwich and it was also very good. We both had very cold beers and the service was good. You can go to Ray's Tavern in Green River, Utah and get a great cheeseburger for $8 but it is a long drive. They also have a great location to see and be seen.

I know people may think it's crazy to pay $17 for french fries, but they were amazing. My husband and I sat at the bar and each had a drink. We ordered the fries which came out in a paper cone stand. It was a very large portion. We could taste the truffle oil and they are also sprinkled with parmesan cheese and seasonings. I loved them! The restaurant itself is nice and casual. Will go back for lunch next time. Everything on the menu looked yummy, but the fries were the only item that seemed overpriced (but worth it!)
