Diner Reviews
  • "This place is pricey but our meal was outstanding. There are lots of gourmet restaurants in BeaverCreek-Vail Area to choose from. If you are looking for fine dining, you won't be disappointed if this is your choice. Husband had trout and I had their pasta - we ended up splitting both meals because we each wanted what the other One was eating. My husband said this was his favorite meal while we were on vacation. We were in BC for five Weeks so we ate out a lot!"

  • "We came with our four adult children and were fortunate enough to have Duffy as our server. Duffy could and did make every dish sound so delicious that we struggled to make our dinner choices. Three of us had the ultra delicious bison short ribs, everyone thought their choice was the best. Duffy rhapsodized about the desserts, but we didn't find them as rave worthy. When I only ate the peaches from mine, Duffy noticed and removed it from the bill. My only complaint, if you will, is that the wine list, while filled with some terrific wines, is also loaded with terrific (and by that I mean high) prices. This is a minor complaint, however, given the quality of the experience. We will definitely be back and hope Duffy is still there!"

  • "Our experience at Grouse Mountain Grill was so good we decided to eat there a second time during our stay. The atmosphere is elegant, but not swanky. Try the pork belly starter. It melts in your mouth. I got the elk and my husband had the bison short ribs. Both were excellent. The peach dessert was out of this world, too! Our waiter was awesome. Overall, one of our favorite restaurants in Beaver Creek."

  • "This was our second trip to Beaver Creek and to the Grouse Mountain Grill. The food is just amazing and the service is top notch. They also have good bread and great desserts. It's pricey but worth it. Also, the apps and entrees are a good size. Sometimes in upscale restaurants the portions are small...but not at the Grouse Mountain Grill! It's definitely worth a visit if you're in the area!"

  • "The food here is worth every penny and legitimately creative and exciting -- a contrast to a lot of the restaurants in the Beaver Creek area where you're paying simply for the location."

  • "After reading the reviews we were really looking forward to this Meal and invited a client. we all ordered different items and only the pork chops got a thumbs up. All the other items were over salty and mediocre at best. We will not return."

  • "We are from NYC, and have high eating standards, and we enjoyed everything about this restaurant. The service was excellent, and the food was even better. Smart though extensive wine list that would make anyone happy, and we really enjoyed our meal, esp the appetizers - lobster marscapone, kale salad. We were only in vail for a couple days, and were so impressed by the excellent food that we had the whole vacation."

  • "This was our second family dinner at Grouse Mountain Grill and it dd not disappoint. We all ordered different appetizers and main dishes. All were excellent. But, most notable were the desserts. Apparently they have a new pastry chef and he/she delivers top quality. We had the apple bread pudding, flour-less chocolate cake, and the carrot cake. All were very impressive. The ice cream that came with them was also among the best I have had. This is a pricey restaurant, but it delivers the goods; worth going if you can afford it."

  • "From the moment we sat down until we left, everything was pure perfection. The waiters were very attentive and friendly, made great recommendations.

  • "We had a very nice meal, and the server was the most attentive of any that we experienced during our week at Beaver Creek. My only "complaint" is that the meal was overpriced (in my opinion)."

  • "My husband and I dine all over the valley and this is one of the best. The atmosphere is elegant, but relaxed, the wait staff (bartender, sommelier, waitress) great and the food delicious. A winner every time!"

  • "We have dined most everywhere at Beaver Creek and the Vail Valley over 23 years, including a number of times at Grouse Mountain Grill. This was the worst dining experience EVER! The food was terrible: lobster marscapone was gloppy and tasted like canned crab mixed with melted ricotta. The beet salad was bitter and tasteless. The eggplant agnoletti was inedible -- salted to Dead Sea levels and unattractive beyond belief. The "crispy" duck breast -- the chef's favorite -- was so tough and fibrous, I could barely cut it. The meat was coated with soft fat that easily could have been crisped on an infrared burner, but wasn't, making the eating experience even worse. Fair service at a restaurant that is easily the most expensive in Beaver Creek."
    Dined on 2/13/2014
  • "The grill always manages to find an interesting way to refine a classic dish or present a menu item that is so intriguing you can't help but order it. The menu ranges from Colorado specials from local sources of Elk, bison, and trout to Classic European. It is a must stop and dine site in the Beaver Creek area and worth a diversion if need be!"

  • "While most restaurants in Beaver Creek have become lazy and content to serve mediocre food due to the massive amount of tourist, there are still a few really good ones. Grouse Mountain Grill is one them. Probably the best in BC. Nice touch with the wine list on an ipad. Dinner was fantastic, start to finish. Great atmosphere and I really enjoyed having desert in the bar while listening to not overly loud live music. Had a great time!"

  • "Nothing but positive expierience for my 13 year old son and I. He had the rabbitt and loved it. I had the elk and a great pinot noir as recomended by the waiter. Both were outstanding. We'll be back,"

  • "Always a great dining experience with superb and unique food choices, excellent and large wine selection all displayed on an ipad program, costly but worth it!"

  • "the place is missing something, it looks good but not like a AAA first class place, and the food is not good at all, my lamb was dry and cold, is an average place but not an outstanding, is not worth taking the car out to go. I think the chef who originally designed the plates is no longer working there or they do not review the quality anymore. I dont know but I wont be coming again."

  • "After all these years we finally made it to Grouse Mountain. Why did we wait?!! The food was outstanding. I had the grilled Elk, my son had the rabbit done two ways and my wife had the pork special. All were amazing. Just simply amazing! Dessert had us licking our spoons. The wait staff was so professional. Emily our waitress was absolutely great. This restaurant is a must on our list from now on."

  • "On a very snowy night we took the restaurant shuttle and then dial-a-coach to The Pines which is where the restaurant is. The food was superb as was the service. My wife has the beef tenderloin and I the striped bass. Both were exceptional. We will definitely return. One of our two favorites in the area."

  • "Grouse Mountain Grill is expensive and worth every penny. After being warmly greeted, we were shown to a romantic window table. When we asked for entree suggestions our terrific waiter, Elliot, guided us to an exceptional meal. Two types of fabulous freshly baked bread and three types of butter accompany every meal. I adored my beef and my husband had their famous pretzel covered park chops- absolutely amazing. I can unreservedly recommend this place!"

  • "We have been to Grouse Mountain 5-6 times and love all of it. They staff is always friendly and smiling. The Sommelier is brilliant. He has a tremendous wine list. We love the local flavors which incorporates wild game. This restaurant is not for the delicate diners. My wife and I had 3 courses each plus dessert plus a cocktail and 2 bottles of wine."

  • "This is our favorite restaurant in Beaver Creek! The service is wonderful and the food fabulous. The food is presented beautifully and is delicious. We had the duck breast and the pork chop from the menu. Our entrees were thoroughly enjoyed. We shared the chocolate layer cake, which was decadent and a marshmallow ice cream, which was also delicious. Our waiter was very attentive. The wine and food are somewhat pricey, but worth it! We hope you try the Grouse Mountain Grill when you visit the area!"

  • "We used to frequent Grouse Mtn. Grill 3-4 times a year when in Vail. With our favorite manager leaving and menu changes eliminating some of our favorite dishes, we had not been in at least a year. Since our last visit the dining room underwent a major renovation creating a much warmer dining area, but it is very loud and has a "hotel restaurant" feel rather than the unique (but chilly) former ambiance. The food was great with our party choosing a variety of dishes such as duck, rabbit, elk and trout that were all beautiful in flavor and appearance. The wine list was very pricy though, and the sommelier made suggestions priced well beyond what we told him that we wanted to spend. Overall it was a pleasant evening, but very pricy!"

  • "I went with my fiance and father, and we all had the best dishes we'd eaten in months. We all tried each others' as well, and none of us was disappointed by anything we tried. I can't remember the last time I've left a restaurant without being able to think of a single aspect or plate that could have been improved. I will work hard in life to afford a return visit."

  • "We recently dined here with a group of 6. Every dish was amazing from the kale salad to the buffalo short ribs, to dessert and the service was impeccable. One vegetarian in the group, who raved about her dish as well. This restaurant is one of the best in the Vail Valley."
