Have been to Pepi's a couple times befor, when in Vail and was very pleased. But this visit was a big disappointment. I ordered the Weiner Schnitzel and it was mostly breading with veal you could read through. Was supposed to be a special birthday dinner.

Food was great. Service a bit slow. We had reserved inside table and were given an outdoor table but weather was pleasant do didn’t ask for a different table. Overall good value and probably the best meal we had in Vail.

Food and history makes me want to love this place, but service felt more like a truck stop diner, and all due respect to truck stops. Took us 40min to get a glass of wine and it was not the fault of the waitress she was just absolutely swamped. Even after we brought it to the attention of the staff, they made no effort to right the situation.

Great food, great service and a great location. Make a reservation, sir on the deck and then just watch the world go by in a beautiful setting. Pepi’s is a must for anyone coming to Vail.

Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal and beverages. The service was excellent and we loved sitting in the covered outdoor patio area. Pepi's has been one of our family favorites for decades.

This restaurant never disappoints! We have never had a meal we didn’t enjoy! Outdoor patio seating in the summer is the best! Every time we visit Colorado we make at least one trip to Pepi’s!

The quality of food was very good - much better than the mixed reviews suggested. The kids loved the Wiener Schnitzel with Spaetzle and my wife and I were very happy with our meals as well (cornish hen and duck). Service was a little overwhelmed, but still acceptable.

We enjoyed our Caesar salads and entrees, salmon & couscous, pork brats, and jagerschnitzel. Outdoor seating is nice. Staff was pleasant, but seemed overwhelmed and it took awhile to get our order in. Glass of wine was forgotten.

A Vail Classic

One of the better restaurants in a town full of great dinning establishments.

I have had the opportunity to visit Vail since 1980 and have always made it to Pepi's for a late lunch or dinner. Pepi, a Vail and skiing legend, passed away last year; but, his family maintains his high standards.

Close to the covered bridge and a public parking lot makes it easy to get to Pepi's. Make a reservation and enjoy good food and alpine hospitality.

Pepi’s doesn’t check open table reservations after about 10am. If you want a sameday res you should call them directly.

Pepi’s is the best. A Vail tradition that never disappoints. The food is outstanding, and so is the service. You can’t go wrong with any of their specialties. However, I have to order something that comes with red cabbage and spatzle. It wouldn’t be a meal at Pepi’s without those sides. I look forward to returning on my next trip to Vail!

Everything was great except for the food. I ordered French onion soup and beef stroganoff. The soup tasted like someone dumped a container of salt in it. The beef was overly salted and tough as a rock. Would not go back here.

Make reservations for the dining room. It is very different from the bar out front. Bar is loud and raucous, but then they take to you the dining room behind a closed door and it is very nice and quiet for dinner.

No meat in the schnitzel but plenty of breading! For the $100 bill we had to also listen to the extremely loud apres ski craziness on the other side of the restaurant! Won’t go back!

The ambiance in the dining room is starkly different from the bar. Don't let the noise in the bar deter you from trying this.

I never give reviews but want to warn others. We hought we would be eating in the bar area with the live music. This is a separate restaurant from there. The hostess was rude- calling the patrons animals. Food was overpriced, heavy, salty and pretty hard to get down. Waitresses were in German costumes. So silly.
