    Another great experience at GMG. Waiter and sommelier were top notch. They spend time at table as if they have as plenty of time to make sure the experience is memorable. Music was terrific by Tony G. We actually returned to restaurant to see Tony G and then to eat. The braised elk short ribs were so tender and flavorful. Perfect for a cold wintery night! Definitely will return again next year!

    First I'll start by saying this restaurant came highly recommended by everyone we talked to in the village. I must say I was a little let down overall. The atmosphere and the piano player were top notch however service was lacking. I know it was early season and not a busy night but as a server do not tell me we are slow. The server was very pushy on taking our order we told her we were going to wait but came back multiple times within minutes of telling her we were going to relax for a while. Once we did order our entree's our drinks were not re filled. I was wanting another glass of wine and a cocktail but when asked when we are 3/4 done with our meal i decided no because I was done throwing money away. Porkchop was dry

    On our annual trip to Vail / Beaver Creek for Thanksgiving, we chose to eat at the Grouse Mountain Grill for our family Thanksgiving dinner. It's hard to find a high-end restaurant that serves a traditional turkey dinner fit for the entire family. We do not want a bland & dry buffet, nor do we want things like caviar or pâté'! Our dinner was excellent. The butternut squash soup was decadent, & the turkey with mashed potatoes & stuffing were delicious. The service (Rachel) was flawless & they made every effort to please our little ones, even getting some books for them to read. The atmosphere was cozy and elegant, and I can't wait to return with my husband sometime for a quiet dinner for 2! Highly recommended!!

    Maybe Thanksgiving was not the best night to try Grouse Mountain for the first time.....Service was good, but way too rushed. Even asked the waitress to slow things down, but that did no good. As soon as you finished the last mouthful of one course, the next was on the table. Asked for venison medium rare - got well-done. Soup was great, salad was mostly BIG pieces of greens, and sides were served all mushed together on one small plate - looked like someone had already eaten them. Expect better for $70.00 per person. Wine also outrageously priced at $20.00 for a small glass - nothing special.

    Food excellent/outstanding, but a little too expensive for your normal "local" resident (not Beaver Creek resident--but, the typical working "joe" resident. Off-season deals for "locals" would really be appreciated and hopefully fill your restaurant and keep your employees happy during slow periods.

    We go to Grouse Mountain Grill on a yearly visit in the fall when visiting Beaver Creek. This experence was awful. The typical matri d was not there to greet us nor was anyone. They have remodeled the dining room to squeeze in more table and the chairs are less comfortable. The waitress took the the speials menu away before we ordered. The tenderloin I had was tough and tasteless. The bartendar was inexperienced and served an Irish Coffee with no sugar or whiskey in it after we inquired if they "knew" how to make a proper one. We spent more money on this meal than any other while on vacation and it was the worst experence. We will not be returning

    Highly rated and with justification. Going in Shoulder Season, however, means a few understandable differences but offset by very attractive food specials. The wine list, extensive, is somewhat pricey, far beyond normal mark-up for many bottles. But that, to me, is a challenge and if you dig enough, there are choices. The food and presentation were terrific though even with a reduced off-season menu, there was a change/substitution by the kitchen. Still, well worth trying again when things are jumping.

    Few places do breakfast well - let alone with creativity, but Grouse Mountain Grill really delivered. We ordered the Fried Green Tomoto Benedict with tomato hollandaise and the lemon scented blueberry pancakes. Both entrees exceeded our expectations. They were perfectly prepared, served hot with beautiful presentation and even better flavor. Both items are now among our favorite breakfast entrees ever! Seated on the flower lined deck over looking Beaver Creek valley and mountains was the perfect brunch setting to begin a day of leaf peeping and hiking. The servers were professional and attentive without intruding. This place is truly worth seeking out when in the Beaver Creek/Vail/Avon area. We will return for breakfast and more!

    Just dined here in the 'shoulder season' so not as many folks in Beaver Creek as high seasons. The menu was creative with local foods and all the specials were just that, special. Outstanding service from all the servers in attentiveness, attitude and aim to please. We had the 3 course tasting menu and each course was outstanding in taste and presentation. This 3 course dinner was priced only slightly above what an entree alone would cost during the high seasons. Offered a window table, we chose instead one by the corner fireplace which provided some further ambience and increased our distance from the next closest diners. Highly recommend Grouse Mtn Grill and we will definitely return.

    Grouse Mountain Grill is always outstanding! We sat outside and no one else did, so we felt like we had a private dinner! We have brought our guests here throughout the summer and they are always impressed. Lisa was a wonderful waitress and was very accommodating and informative about the area. We enjoyed the beet salad, pork chops and duck! The food presentation was beautiful also. Always a great experience!

    Grouse Mountain Grill is located in the Pine Lodge, which is a Rock Resort. The restaurant is beautiful. We had a party of six and had to sit inside, however the entire wall was french doors, giving you the feel of sitting outside. Party's of four or less were able to dine out on the balcony. The food was fabulous and the service some of the best ever. We will definitely return.

    Grouse Mountain Grill is a must visit! The menu is creative and inviting; the challenge is knowing any selection will be outstanding - a good reason to keep coming back and try something new each time. The wine list is certainly expansive and the in-house sommelier is accommodating in assisting with the perfect wine pairing for your meal. Everyone is friendly and down to earth, smiling and helpful. Since this was a Summer visit, we sat outside to enjoy the beautiful views - they even had cozy fleece blankets available to keep you warm as the cool mountain air arrived. Also important to note, they did a remodel recently and while we did enjoy the cozy mountain decor, the new, more cosmopolitan/chic feel is just as inviting. We'll be back!

    The Grouse Mountain Grill is simply over-all the restaurant in Beaver Creek. Every time we visit it we come away with a smile on our face. The newly remodeled bar gives Eddie (a wizard of mixology) a great place to display his talents. The service at "The Grouse" is always fantastic. But the food is what we come for and it never disappoints. I have not found anything on the menu I would not order again. The best way to sum it up is, everything is delicious and meticulously presented. I would eat at The Grouse Mountain Grill every night if I could.
