Lots of fun, a little sloshy
Fantastic food, amazing beer that actually does fit the food! Could have dropped the price and given us 3 half pints. 3 full pints required sitting at the fire for 40 min just to be safe to drive, especially when the last beer was ABV 10.5! That was fun too though. Spectacular lodge and views. A real adventure!

The view and service were
The view and service were fantastic. Breakfast was superb. The Wedge salad was terrific and so were the hamburgers, but that ceasar salad was so tiny as to be insulting.

A gem in the mountains
Love Devils Thumb Ranch and Heck's is one of 2 great restaurants on site. There is a game room for kids so adults can stay and enjoy, thus good for larger groups. Also, s'mores at outside fire pit is an awesome touch. I have now been there 3 times and each entree I have tried has been unique and very good.

Beautiful rustic atmosphere
Beautiful rustic atmosphere right out of a national park lodge. Not as fancy as the upscale Ranch House, but very good and a much better value. One of the best restaurants in Grand County

Hecks is a great place to
Hecks is a great place to eat if you are staying at DTR or are there for a ski day. We recommend the "hog chop" and the empanadas! Be patient though, when busy, things can be slow. It is worth the time to enjoy the views and company!

Had a delightful après ski dinner. Staff seemed overworked and short handed. Pleasant waiter compensated.

Stopped in for breakfast and had a great experience. The food was really good as was the service. We were seated at a table with a mountain view. It made for an enjoyable morning.

We made the reservation not
We made the reservation not knowing about the beer tasting event. However, we were pleasantly suprised that it worked out for all of us. My one idea is, for those of us who really don't drink beer, we would love a wine substitute. As it turns out, there were at least 3-4 beers left over when we were done.
We are locals and love Hecks.

The appetizers were great
The appetizers were great and the drinks were good. When my entree arrives, the food was on the verge of cold so I sent it back and the waiter said they were bringing a new entree. That arrived and it was barely lukewarm but I just dealt with is since my husband was almost done with his entree. The atmosphere was great and it seemed like it was kid friendly. The firepit outside was awesome and it we weren't so full, we would have asked for a marshmallow kit to roast them for dessert. The property itself is awesome and I highly recommend it to anyone!

I have been to Heck's twice for lunch and it was wonderful both times. Cozy in the winter with the fireplace in the background and cool and breezy in the summer on the patio with amazing views. Great food.

We visited Devil's Thumb for
We visited Devil's Thumb for an overnight and had lunch, dinner, and breakfast at Heck's since the big restaurant was closed on Tuesday. Our salad, reuben sandwich, all the small plates, and our breakfasts were delicious! We appreciated having such a fine restaurant with such excellent service right there at the lodge. We'll eat there again when we return.

Smarter and pricier
Great food and location. Perhaps a little self consciously special. Steak and hose red was excellent.

Heck's made a nice day even better
We were out to see some Fall colors and decided to visit Heck's. It was such a nice experience, great hexagonal room, with a deck that looked out onto meadows and mountains. Our waiter was very attentive and quick to give us information about the room and the rest of the lodge when we asked. Try the wild game chili - good flavors and very hearty. After our ahi tuna salads (by the way, the tuna was prepared perfectly) we took our wine to the patio and relaxed even more. Thanks for a very good experience.
