Let Us Host Your Event!

Ray was our bartender/server/surrogate mom for the evening, and she made our night. The food was great, the drinks were exceptional, and Ray's thoughtfulness and sincerity made my husband's 40th birthday. I can't speak highly enough about her
We drove into Rocky Mountain National Park and the nightmare happened: We had locked ourselves out of our car just before sunset. It became freezing cold and we sought shelter in the tavern. We were greeted with the finest rock music and a very friendly waiter who made us hot chocolate. The atmosphere and the view were so great that I would love to be stuck there again!
We took our son and his girlfriend out to dinner and all tried the pizza. It was phenomenal! The BBQ pizza was amazing and their pricing for the Grand Lake, CO area we thought were very reasonable. Highly recommended!
We had my daughter's wedding reception and dinner there! It was the happiest day of her life!
This was the best girl's getaway ever. We stayed at the Inn and had the best food and service at the Tavern. We will be back!
