  • "An excellent "upscale" casual sports bar. Food is better than vail's other casual dining at this price point."

  • "We had a lovely window table and enjoyed the view of Gore Creek. We were disappointed that the first three items that my husband and I requested were not available. Our meals were ok, nothing special. The restaurant is part sports bar with tvs at some of the tables. The food is a cross between bar food and level up."

  • "It is an upscale sports bar as described -tv at your table was good for NCAA tournament but no sound and more of a restaurant than a sports bar scene! Food was flavorful but I would stick with local beers over cocktails."

  • "Our waiter was less than welcoming, unresponsive and gave inappropriate, responses to our questions and requests. Heard him treating the next table the same way. So unprofessional and it made us uncomfortable."

  • "After last night's 5-star meal at Mountain Standard, this was a real let down. The location is great, but for tavern-like food, there's a lot better to choose from in term of food quality."

  • "We were very disappointed in the menu. Although they offered half price oysters, which was an unexpected treat, there weren't many other selections. Only streak was a flatiron steak, and fish offerings didn't seem too special. Ribs are highly rated, but they were out of them at 7pm. We had a very mediocre artichoke dip a glass of wine and went somewhere else for a steak. Waitress was very attentive and accommodating even after she realized we probably weren't going to stay for dinner."

  • "Made the reservation on Open Table and there was a table ready when we walked in. We ordered the buffalo sirloin steak, the bison burger, a salad with added elk. All three dishes were prepared well, and the portions were large enough that a 16 yr old boy did not finish his burger and fries after a day of skiing. Excellent meal and would dine again."

  • "Great view of the gore creek from the small dining room. Went with a ski group of 9. Lots of variety on the menu."

  • "The first time we went we enjoyed it very much the service that time was great, so when we were thinking of where to eat our last night we decided to go back. The food was very good, nice variety on the menu, but the server we had the second time wasn't nearly as pleasant as the first, if we hadn't had such a positive experience the first time we probably wouldn't have gone back. Many times when dining out the staff can make or break the experience."

  • "My group had a great time at lunch. The restaurant sits right in the Gore river allowing for scenic views. It a also conveniently located right in Vail Village. I had the Anteloupe Pastrami sandwich for lunch. It was fantastic. I tried their signature "Tavern Burger" and enjoyed that too. Their beer and wine menu is also sufficient and not overly priced. I would recommend this place."

  • "The drinks and service were very good. I ordered the burger medium, which was dry and somewhat tasteless. The truffle fries were good. Overall the food was average compared to the offerings in Vail. Great location and good ambience."

  • "We arrived on time for our 7:15 reservation and were given a great booth with its own television set -- we requested this based on Avalanche game scheduled for that night. Our waiter was very slow getting to the table initially and we ordered cocktails and dinner at once since we had hungry kids with us. Salad and drinks arrived promptly, but it was another hour before dinner arrived (chicken wings, a burger and a half rack of ribs). We felt as if our waiter was avoiding our table as dinner was taking so long and he could only say "it will be right out" so many times. Food finally arrived -- though it was another 10 minutes for side of fries ordered with the meal, and the food was very average. TVs constantly blacking out as well."

  • "I loved looking out onto the gorge as we ate our dinner. Our group had a variety of meals from steak to chicken and all were delicious. The service was quick and very helpful with our choices of food and wine. We would definitely return to the Tavern on the Gorge."

  • "Made a reservation for a Christmas lunch & turned out to be a great choice. Service was very good & the food was imaginative & plentiful. The Elk Chilli is notworthy. Order a cup just for the taste. A great find in Vail Villiage; just around the corner from the Covered Bridge with great views of the creek."

  • "The food was just not very good. Salad dressing tasted like it came from a bottle. Portions small. Chowder was so thick you could slice it with a knife."

  • "Very nice restaurant in the heart of Vail. Food was outstanding for a casual dining establishment. The prices were much more affordable than some of the other restaurants in the same area."
