Elk Ave Prime
We feature 16 beers on tap, most of which are Colorado born, as well as the largest wine selection in the valley. You can enjoy any of our drinks from our outdoor patio or cozy up next to our fireplace, great after a long day of skiing.
Elk Ave Prime is one of the largest venues in Crested Butte, ideal for large parties or wedding receptions.
Daily 5:00 pm–9:00 pm
Always fun week to be in Crested Butte. Aspens were outstanding. Wonderful evening, great food, amazing service.
Great meal and service, the items we had (salmon and filet mignon) were both excellent. My wife who really does not like stakes, had a couple of bites of my filet and made the comment that it was by far the best steak she had ever tasted and she would have steak more often if they were always that good!
Excellent meal. Steak was divine. Sides were great. Excellent service and knowledgeable wait staff. Would definitely go again and would recommend.
Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Highly recommend.
Delicious crab cake and the best blue cheese dressing I’ve ever eaten.
Great steak! Spectacular service!
Awesome steaks and other fare. Great location in middle of town. Staff attentive.
Elk Ave Prime was a wonderful date night dining experience. We were unsure of what to do with for our last meal in Crested Butte so after searching Open Table and reading reviews we made a reservation. I am so glad we did! The food was exceptional and the waiters were so knowledgeable and attentive. It will definitely be on our to-do list when we find ourselves back there.
Great food, service, wine and atmosphere! We would say its a little overpriced.
We had the sweetest server and the food was incredibly tasty. Unfortunately for me, the altitude was not in my favor and I was clearly having troubles hiding it. However, the staff was amazing making sure that I was well taken care off and incredibly quick. Having an incredibly delicious meal was just the icing on the cake.
Weekend get away with husband
Totally enjoyed our meal at The Prime. Worth every $$
The Brussels Sprouts appetizer is a must and their steaks are great also!
Every time we are in Crested Butte this is on our list of stops!
Excellent menu and food quality. Server was outstanding.
We love Elk Prime and it may be our new favorite restaurant in Crested Butte. The service was great and so was the food. Love the variety of food and the wonderful appetizers. Our only complaint about the food is that the French onion soup is not that tasty. It lacks flavor...only disappointment. I suggest you buy the secret recipe for this from the former owners of Le Bosquet. Everything else was superb and yummy! We wish you many years of success!
Excellent dining experience, one of Crested Butte's finest
delicious food in a fun western setting. be sure to try the tempura brussel sprout starter.
Excellent food and outstanding service! We will be back
we feel the food is very expensive but very good. Elliott was our waitperson and was very, very good. Attentive but not over crowding. We were there early, seated at a nice quite table and before the evening was over we could not hear the person sitting right next to us. Would recommend Elk Prime if noise doesn't bother you.
We have been here several times, yet this was a special occasion and just as special a meal! I had the tenderloin and my wife had the duck; both were outstanding! The service was good and the wine was excellent and well priced. We shall continue to come here for Curtis's special presentations!
Never miss going to Elk Prime when I'm in CB. Actually, it's my favorite filet and mac/cheese anywhere I've lived or traveled. Wine menu is robust. I love that I can dress CB casual but enjoy a 5-star meal and service.
We visit Crested Butte once a year and Elk Prime never disappoints. It is a must eat spot on our list. The food is great and service has always been wonderful. I highly recommend!
Fantastic food. Items are a la carte as per a usual steakhouse. The steaks were very, very good!
Best wagu steak ever. We go every time we are in town. Great management.
Excellent steak, sides and wine. Wine list is incredible but pricey, but there are some good values. Cherry dessert was the best anywhere.
We love Elk Ave Prime. We try to eat there several times when visiting Crested Butte. The wagu beef medallions were mouthwatering and carrot cake was the perfect dessert!
Prime has a fantastic wine menu as well as a fabulous menu. It's not cheap but you certainly get a high quality product. I was told that CB has a difficult time finding staff so I wasn't sure what to expect service wise, but it was fantastic.
The meat is good but they don't know the first thing about cooking vegetables. Our roasted veggies might as well have been boiled. The roasted mushrooms were worse tasting of cooked cheap red wine. The wine list is ridiculously expensive.
We really enjoyed our meal, I had a delicious filet and very refreshing drink made with local spirits😊
Great experience. Wonderful service, chef owner delivered our food. Highly recommend this establishment. Best steak I've had this year bar none. Loved the Brussels sprouts.
One of our favorite restaurants in Crested Butte, which is saying a lot since most of the places in CB are awesome!
Very nice steakhouse—our filets were prepared perfectly and the special salad of the day—peaches, goat Cheese, and truffle oil was delicious! Ordered the cookies and ice cream for dessert—had two giant chocolate chip cookies. Shared by two but could have easily served four! Our server Elliott was lovely.
Good food. Good brews. A bit pricey but worth it every now and the
Lobster was fantastic, the steaks are so thick and juicy. Staff was amazing and friendly. Will go back again
Outstanding food! Variety, beautiful presentation,
Great detail given to flavors ! Wine recommendations always wonderful! Definitely on the expensive side ! Great for a special night out.
First time at Elk Ave. Might just be the best steak I have ever had. And our waiter was exceptional.
Excellent service and food quality was very good. Good place for friend get together.
We dined there for a special occasion with friends, unfortunately my steak was overdone, and the second time too rare so I was not able to eat along the group. The server was very friendly and tried making things right, but after returning my steak twice I kind of lost my appetite.
Prime is a perfect explanation of the restaurant- PRIME. Everything from the moment you walk in is excellent. The service is outstanding, the food is perfection and the location and setting are the best in town. The bar also offers a lighter menu if you are in for a quick bite too. Don't miss this if you visit Crested Butte.
The hostess was so accommodating! The food was good but all our steaks were overcooked.
