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.
We are in town skiing for spring break. Our server was Bob , and he was fantastic. He was there when needed, kind, genuine. The chef came by to ask about our food and steak temperature. Fine dining with comfort level to bring kids. Fantastic steak and food. Highly recommend and will be back.
We absolutely loved everything about Elk Ave Prime! Fantastic service, delicious food and fun atmosphere! Can't wait to get back!
The best meal I have eaten in the last 5 years, potentially ever. Get the Elk with the buffalo ravioli. I will return to Crested Butte for this restaurant alone, it was that good
Easily our favorite restaurant in Crested Butte. Wine list is exceptional and the food has been outstanding the three times we have visited. Additionally I cannot say enough about the service and the friendliness of everyone - including the very personableable owner. You can't really go wrong if you're looking for a place for a nice dinner.
Great food. Service was fantastic and very friendly. It is expensive though - you get what you pay for!
Great restaurant with a good cocktail and menu. Lively place earlier in the evening, so not the place to go if you are looking for a quiet romantic dining experience. If you are into fun and a foodie, then definitely a great place to go.
Amazing. We love Elk Prime!!
Another great evening at EAP. Always love the atmosphere and the amazing food. By far the best & most consistent service in Crested Butte. Can’t wait to come back next time we are in town.
It was amazing and Ari was such a good server!
Best Wagyu Steak in Colorado! French Onion soup is hall of fame and the sides are outstanding. Highly recommend when in Crested Butte.
Everything was amazing! Would absolutely go back!
Wonderful food & service! Thank you for a fabulous dining experience.
The food was so good, our family is still taking about how good it was days later! Brussel sprouts !!
All basically very good. Wished restaurant offered a few more fresh vegetables. Service great.
Although we *dicovered* them a bit late this is the best food & tightest run ship in town! Thx Curtis & Crew. Highly recommended.
as good as it gets for steak, my wife had the elk and it was amazing. if you like classic steak house cuisine like del friscos/bobs etc.. you'll love elk prime. just dont sit in one of the front tables but the street or you'll hear the door slam. other than that, it was amazing!
Great Service. Great Food. Nice place in a wonderful ski town.
Excellent experience. The Elk was fantastic and was the halibut special
By far the best restaurant in Crested Butte. The service, food and atmosphere could not have been better. We will certainly be back.
My wife and I were vacationing Crested Butte Colorado and decided to make reservations. The food was exceptional, and the staff far exceeded our expectations. I forgot what good service was like. If restaurant owners want a clue they should send the wait staff here to learn, just saying. I had the Japanese Wagyu and the manager made me a copy of the certificate of authenticity of the meat, where it came from, the cut, the marble, etc, as a conversation piece. These people truly care about the customers and I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you for being awesome...
The food was great and presented in a manner was simple but nice. Everything tasted wonderful and we would definitely make an effort to have dinner again at Elk Ave Prime if we are close to Crested Butte in the future.
I would definitely come back. Extraordinary service, food and ambiance.
A wonderful dining experience in Crested Butte. Our food was excellent and the service was outstanding! Can’t wait to go back!
Outstanding meal but it’s very expensive.
Great food and servive
One of Best Steak Places of all the many Ski Areas I visit.
The best steak and everything cooked perfect. Pricey but worth it! Service is fantastic
Steak was delicious, as were the salad and bacon-wrapped scallops. Service excellent and the ambience, too. The roasted mushrooms were quite bad, and our waitress took them off our bill. Right move. Overall very very satisfying.
Although Elk Ave Prime is a high end dining experience, they truly do strive to give value for dollars. We actually had a problem with our order not being hot; management was overly accommodating and made everything right. We love this restaurant. Excellent food and service.
No service. Poor food selection. I don’t stay at a full service hotel and expect to have to use the internet to order my food.
Very good food. Very loud
I moved to Boulder CO in 2015 from the DC area. This meal was the best meal that I have had in Colorado. The wine that I ordered was rated 93 by Wine Advocate. Retail price for the wine was $65.00 from the winery. Elk Ave Prime sold it for $77.00. Clearly, Elk Ave Prime is trying to offer their clientele a good value. I would strongly recommend this restaurant to anyone traveling to Crested Butte.
Elk Ave Prime exceeded all our expectations! We strongly suggest trying the deviled egg appetizer, best eggs ever! We had Buffalo, Wagyu Beef, and seafood - all we excellent. We'll be back!
Dinner was terrific! Great to have a fine dining option in CB.
Best food in Crested Butte. 5 star service and food.
Everyone was doing their best. The effort and desire to excel was apparent. However, it was clear the cook and wait staff were not familiar with the concept of fine dining. The wine selection was very good. I hope this helps.
Amazing food. Had the elk, Lamb, Buffalo trio and it was spectacular. Curtis, the owner, stopped by to check on us. Great experience!
Everything about our experience was great.
We had an amazing dinner with wonderful service! The perfect dinner spot in Crested Butte!
Service was excellent, steak was over seared and fatty, bar like atmosphere unexpected for high end restaurant.
So sorry we didn't meet your expectations. If you would please email me we could put a note in your account to not sear the steak for you next time. As well as please let me know which steak was fatty. Next time please let me know when your server or i check with you at the table so we can make it right at the time. Also, very confused about how we were a bar like atmosphere. Please reach out to me curtis@elkaveprime
