Beaver Creek Dining suggestions


Looking for dinner reccomendations in Beaver Creek, CO. It doesn't have to be fancy but the food should be exceptional. Please help. Thanks

  1. Actually IN Beaver Creek and really about the food, as you requested:

    High end fine dining -- Splendido at the Chateau and Grouse Mountain Grill at Pines Lodge.

    Moderately priced but good food -- Golden Eagle Inn.

    Sushi -- Foxnut.

    Casual with decent burgers, etc. -- Dusty Boot.

    Avoid Beano's Cabin -- it's about the "experience" rather than the food, IMO.

    Grouse Mountain Grill
    141 Scotthill Road, Avon, CO 81620

    45 Thomas Place, Avon, CO 81620

    Beano's Cabin
    PO Box 294, Avon, CO 81620

    Golden Eagle Inn

      If you are staying at the Beav, you can take "dial-a-ride" free van service to the Westin in Avon or Mirabelle. At the Westin you have Avondale, a Larkspur spin-off.

      I've seen some reference to taking the ECO (Eagle County Bus) to either Vail or Edwards. Not a good idea unless you like to stand out in the cold late at night for a half an hour. There is a party bus operation called Green Turtle that does Beav to Vail run, ask the concierge for info. The only thing I know is they have a poll for dancing on the bus.

      DD gave you the scoop on the Beav.
