“Great restaurant- wonderful food, atmosphere & service!”
Reviewed 19 January 2012

I've dined here a few times over the past few years, as I love to come up to Winter Park for the skiing. Heck's keeps getting better and better with each visit. They have a new chef at Devil's Thumb and he has completely transformed the food with a great menu serving mostly local, organic food. Everything is made from scratch, including the bread and hamburger buns. So far my favorite things on the menu are the veggie lasagna (amazing) and the scallop & rock shrimp salad (best salad ever). For dessert, I can't resist the ice cream sandwich. They change up the flavors, but in December it was a ginger bread cookie with egg nog icecream. Unreal.

The atmosphere has always been amazing, as there's a huge three sided fireplace in the center of the room and some cozy couches and chairs that are super welcoming. The views of the Continental Divide from the huge windows is amazing. The deck off the back of the restaurant must be amazing in the summer.

The service is definitely worth mentioning. Most recently my server's name was Gary and he was wonderful. Very attentive, pleasant, and genuine, which is such a nice surprise in Grand County!

I would highly recommend this restaurant- by far one of the best in the area.

“WE HAD A MARVELOUS TIME AND WONDERFUL FOOD!”
Reviewed 17 January 2012

We dine here as often as we can because it has a warm western feeling with incredible views. The service is great with friendly happy wait staff that are bent on pleasing you and making your dining experience enjoyable. The menu change with the seasons is also enticing to get you back to try the NEW dishes. The food is delicious and plated with a eye for detail so it looks scrumptious to eat. The deserts are delectable and trying them all is a must. It is a marvelous restaurant and we recommend it highly.

“Review of Heck's Tavern, not the Resort”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

it was my birthday so we ventured away from Winter Park to find a nice place to dine. What a disappointment! The place itself was beautiful, but where should I start with the rest..... First of all, we were greeted by a snooty hostess and although the place was more than half empty, she scoffed when we said we didn't have reservations. We like to sit at the bar so we asked to sit at a high top table in the bar. We waited for an unacceptable amount of time for a server. (the buss boy was great, promptly bringing water and bread and even fixing the wobbly table for us). My husband finally went to the bar to ask the bartender who was responsible for our table; turns out she was,and 1 person was sitting at the bar! We ordered what turned out to be the best thing about our entire meal, a nice bottle of locally produced wine. The carpaccio was sliced way too thick and was seared, albeit mostly rare in the middle, not raw the way it should be. Although the meat was mostly tender the sauce on it, I can't even remember what is was, was awful! The salad were ordered were ok, nothing spectacular, but both of our entrees were mediocre at best, over priced, and for the most part a rip off. The bartender turned out to be very nice, and they did comp a desert for my birthday. It was a very sad b-day dinner.

Oh, my what a terrible way to spend your birthday. While we feel Heck's is a wonderful spot for a casual dining experience, we sincerely regret that you had less than the dinner you had hoped for. Hopefully, you will give us another opportunity to "WOW" you the next time you are in Grand County.
