“Looking for Hunter S Thompson”
Reviewed 23 March 2013

On my drive from Denver to spend a week skiing in Aspen, I stopped to have a bite at the Woody Creek Tavern. If you have not visited the infamous tavern, I suggest you do. It was Hunter S Thompsons hang out in the day. Full of fun, interesting memorabilia from everyone who is or isn't famous, it also dones a good menu, all hours of the day and night. Another must go to.

“Woody Creek is a Unique Spot”
Reviewed 6 March 2013

Since my Townhouse is in Basalt it is most convenient for me to stop by The Woody creek Tavern after Skiing in the winter and as I ride my bike to Aspen in the summer. Always energetic the bar is a great place to sit and talk to whoever has dropped by. The menu combines burgers and Mexican fare like Guacamole and Chips, and Fish Tacos. The servings are always enormous and the wait staff always friendly and helpful My idea of a Colorado tavern.

“Never a dull moment”
Reviewed 17 January 2013

The food is great. The atmosphere is fun. The staff is real--nothing pretentious about them! The history is rich. The drinks are perfect. It's an experience not to be missed, for sure!

“Fun place steeped in Aspen history”
Reviewed 4 January 2013

This is a fun place to go. The wait staff is hilarious and the place is covered with pictures of all the people-celebs, locals and historical figures in the town, which are really interesting to look at. Very casual, entertaining meal with very good food.

“Never go back, very rude staff!”
Reviewed 2 November 2012

We went to eat at Woody Creek Tavern on our way back from Aspen to Basalt. Since we heard all these great stories about the restaurant we had high expectations, but WOW what a disappointment.
Service standards are simply not present; our server was just plain rude and arrogant pretty much about everything including payment. Food is mediocre at best and overpriced. They seem to live of the hype from the past but are not able to live up to any expectations. Not worth the money or the hype.
