Although had trouble finding this restaurant since Google and the address did not much up. After stopping to ask it is located next door to the Holiday Inn. Food was very good. They were friendly and seated us when our reservation was
The bacon wrapped tots were soooo yummy. Our waitress was very attentive and cool. I suspect she's a snowboarder when she not working at the cafe. She just had that kind of vibe.
We enjoyed our dinners and definitely would go back.
We read reviews that this was a special place. We sat through an afternoon thundershower while we ate and that was the only thing memorable about our visit. The barbecue sauce tasted bottled, the cole slaw was coarse and the dressing tasteless, and the fish tacos were undistinguished. The Sweaty Betty beer was great however.
The waitresses are amazing at the Westside Cafe. They all work very well together to make sure your needs are being met. We all enjoyed our meals from the Veggie Eggs Benedict to the Strawberry Chicken Salad. We'd definitely go there again.
Westside Cafe is great for what it does--good food at good prices. The waitstaff is personable and attentive. The menu has sufficient variety to satisfy everyone's needs/desires.
Hamburgers, dessert.... all fabulous! Friendly staff too!
This was our first time at this restaurant. The food was fine. Could have been hotter temperature wise. The service was poor. Our food was late, came out at different times, and they seemed to forget we'd not been all served. They apologized and explained they had new cooks and they weren't on the same page, but still..... Anyhow, it's a good location and the food was good enough, I'd give them one more chance. They did at least take something off the bill
This is the second time we have eaten at the Westside Cafe in Vail. It is a basic but quaint interior and often quite busy.
Our first time there it was for breakfast, which was quite good. This time it was for dinner, and it was again solid. The buffalo meatloaf was a hit, as were the burgers. We also had the beet salad which was tasty.
Definitely worth considering in Vail when compared to places that are much more expensive.
Casual relaxed friendly
A perfect family spot kids
Western decor part of holiday Inn but with separate entrance
Frequent diners can get a rewards point card
Well worth driving to. It's good to know that a place such as this exists at Vail. Reasonable prices- $5 for a glass of wine. Very good, fresh food, unpretentious. Great, friendly place.
