My family and I had an enjoyable
My family and I had an enjoyable experience at the Blue Spruce Inn. We started with a shared appetizer of scallops which were perfectly prepared followed by steaks which were tender and an excellent value.
The service was friendly and attentive. We will come back next time we are in the area

We arrived a little ahead
We arrived a little ahead of our booked time and had a very pleasant pre-dinner drink in the bar area by a open log-effect fire. This was particularly good value as it was "happy hour". The dinner in the quieter front room was very good (as usual) and the staff were most attentive after an initial wait due to a mis-understanding. We were offered a free course due to this long wait to be served, which was good service recovery. The menu is quite varied and the food tasty and hot. We shall go again when we are over from the UK again.

High Altitude, High Cost
White tablecloth dining located in a historic inn on main street. Service was excellent, food came out quickly and steak doneness was as requested. For the price, the steaks lacked the exceptional quality expected from a high priced steak house, but were better than average "Outback" or "Hoffbrau" chain. The menu posted on the website was not up to date with what was handed out. Like everything else near the ski resorts, prices are higher, perhaps here more so.

great food eperience
Food was great. Beer on tap is from a local brewery and was very good. Trout was very good and steaks were some of the best we have ever had. Overall a very nice experience.

Good Food, Quaint Setting
Second time at the Spruce and the food was very good and the waiter attentive. First time had a filet that was wonderful and this time had the Fresh Grilled Trout. Loved it. Have a decent wine list as well. Variety of foods to appeal to everyone. Even a vegetarian polenta option. Had a wonderful little window table for two with fresh flowers. Waiter Andy was very attentive and quite a character. Will be back!

Loved this restaurant!
We can understand why this restaurant has been open since 1947! walked by one night and smelled delicious steak, so made a reservation the following night (good thing, too because the place was busy!) Food was delicious! He had the filet, I had the red trout. Dessert was wonderful, as well. We will definitely be back when we visit next summer! A little on the pricey side, but well worth it.

You will always get great food and great service here.

Casual and Delicious
The atmosphere here is very laid back, shorts and t-shirt would be fine, but the food is 5 star!! We loved it all!

Quaint with great food
This rustic old building has been converted to a warm, quaint place. My husband loved the lobster Oscar pasta dish which was a special for the day. My salmon was very tasty! Wine was a nice complement. The waiter was attentive and offered suggestions on request. Atmosphere is casual "mountain" with a warm cabin feel. Definitely will return again!

Always a wonderful experience
Always a wonderful experience at Blue Spruce Inn. The have a plethora of meat & seafood dishes to choose from and despite the fact that there is only one vegetarian option, it is incredible & worth getting every time! Great atmosphere and the staff is always very friendly.

noise level was really high,
noise level was really high, not energetic, almost had to yell and table very tiny.. but overall service and food were very good, so most likely will come back but only special occasions.

The Blue Spruce is one of my favorite restaurants in town. The food choices are fabulous and the wait staff are fun and friendly. I always take friends here when they come to visit. My dad does not live here but when he visits he insists on going every time. Don't forget to try the desserts, the mud pie is my favorite!

Fabulous menu and food!
My friend and I were there on a quiet night between summer events at Copper Mountain. The variety of food was amazing. I had Steak Diane and my friend had Elk, and we were both very pleased with our meals. There was a great dessert menu as well, and we were not disappointed! The ambiance was old world, traditional. We were in heaven!

We wanted to eat here for lunch but they only were open for dinner. We left the area but came back specifically to eat here.
We weren't disappointed, it wasworth the trip.

Great find anytime of year
We found this place a number of years ago during a winter storm and had a very memorable night. Food, service and ambiance have been outstanding even during off season. During week of off season they have a limited menu but enough choices to satisfy all in our group. Cozy and delicious is how we describe it!

The surf and turf buffet was really good. I was surprised that the lobster tail was actually moist and tasty and not at all rubbery, didn't even need butter (though it was available). The peal and eat shrimp was very good and tasted very fresh. The only disappointment was the crab legs, as they were not exceptional; tasted as if was a bit of freezer burn.
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We thought about trying a new place but know the food and service is always great at the Blue Spruce and we weren't disappointed.

Weekend getaway in Fresco
We were a party of 8. Restaurant called to verify tat we were coming. It was a blizzard onus it's but restaurant was war and inviting. Staff was very Friesland and our waiter was amazing! Knowledgeable about the menu and wine list, very accommodating and patient with our slightly drunken group! Food was wonderful. We will return!

My wife and I were on a short
My wife and I were on a short visit from the UK and have dined here before. We choose it for our Thansgiving Dinner as it is fairly intimate, has good service and a traditional menu. In particular we really enjoyed our pre-dinner drink beside the open fire in the bar area. The happy hour is excellent value and not to be missed. The front (old) dining area is much nicer than the rear area, which is an open and slightly noisy room (hence the 4 stars). Also we thought our deserts were nothing to write home about (hence the 4 stars again), but this is only a very minor criticism.
