Awesome experience! The “sleigh” ride was a real adventure. This is not the romantic part of the night so don’t go into it with those expectations, as chances are the snow will be flying and the snowcat towing the sleigh is very loud, but it was a lot of fun! The service from start to finish was amazing and the food was equally as good. Very creative menu so you have to be willing to try some new things! The view from the cabin is stunning and ambience inside was very warm and welcoming with a nice rustic feel. It was a true Colorado dining experience.

Great place to go at Crester Butte. We go every year. I really like Charlie Brown’s approach using many small samples.

This was our third visit to this restaurant. We arrived about 2 mins before our reservation time. No one came to greet us or check our reservations for several minutes. Once seated, it was 10 mins. before our waiter came to our table. I gave him a little grace at first, because I thought he might have the larger party next to ours. Turns out it was a different waiter. Our waiter looked like he would rather be anywhere else; not one smile the entire time. The appetizer was microscope and had "just ok" flavors, the salads were fine except a bit too much dressing, both entrees were very small and nothing special. It's a rather expensive place, so I expect to get full if I order 3 such luck. There are many other great restaurants in CB, so we won't be back to this one anytime soon.

My hubby and I were able to experience this amazing sleigh ride and dinner during our trip to Crested By the in March.
Everything was great....the ride, food and service were impeccable. Was worth every penny. It was more of a romantic/date kind of environment, but we did see one well mannered young child there with her parents.
We will definitely return when we are back in the area....
I only wish the system had been available in order to leave my review sooner.

A+ experience! The sleigh ride was beautiful, the Decour of Uley's cabin was elegant/rustic, and the entire staff were welcome mean, professional, and experienced. The food was phenomenal --top notch! I will be back and have shared experience with Facebook friends and many others. Thank you thank you!

Uley's was amazing! The food was delicious, drinks at the ice bar outside are fun for before or after your meal. The beer, and wine by the glass lists are reasonable. The food was incredible and priced super reasonably for the quality. The bottles of wine were a bit much for my wallet but otherwise loved the experience!

We had a great time at Uley's!! It was so romantic and fancy for our anniversary. The sleigh ride was awesome as well.

This was the highlight of our trip!! The sleigh ride and scenery were amazing. The 5 course dinner was absolutely the best we had ever had. We appreciate the chef coming out so we could tell him. I would highly recommend to friends and will plan to do it again next year when we come back. Since I can't ski because of an injury I was thrilled to be able to at least go to the top of he mountain.

The food at Uley's is fabulous, rivaling the mountain view.
The presentation of the food is delightful and all of our selections were delicious.

Sleigh ride was incredible! I was a little bit disappointed with the food. Everything was good don't get me wrong, however just wasn't as good as I was hoping for (and for the price ~$300.00 w/wine, food, sleigh ride and tip). I got the Venison Shank and my date got the Filet Mignon. The Venison was very dry, even with the delicious sauce they used. Pre-meal dishes were really good I should note (cheeses, soup, etc.). My date's steak was good and flavorful, however was really undercooked to what she asked. Service was fantastic and really enjoyed the atmosphere. Would recommend, but would probably pick the salmon or the duck they were offering instead of what we got.

We always visit Uley's when we ski in Crested Butte. It has a lovely atmosphere and is a special treat for family and friends.
