Glenwood Springs Restaurant Recommendations?

I'm going to Glenwood Springs, CO for a long weekend and looking for restaurant recommendations. Any type or price range--just looking for good ones.

Thanks in advance.

  1. I kknow people who drive up from Aspen to Juicy Lucy's Steakhouse. JL tried to breach the Denver market but closed after just a few months, but it is very popular in the Roaring Fork Valley. the Bayou west of town is a fun, affordable Cajun-inspired place. Take a trip partway downvalley to Restaurant Six89 if you have time and are so inclined. Excellent food & wine list to match.

    1. On a coast to coast drive we stayed in Glenwood Springs and ate at the Glenwood Canyon Brewing Co right in town. We really enjoyed it.: very good beer, good food, friendly service, casual and inexpensive. I believe it was the Glenwood Springs brewpub, or someting similar. Nothing fancy or exceptional but very enjoyable after a long day of driving.

        Yeah, the brewpub is decent. Most of my meals have been breakfast. The diner, I think the 19th St Diner, is good basic diner fare. There's also a slightly better diner in Carbondale, just off the highway. Also Breakfast in America in El Jebel.

          Really? The beer is great, but the food is all frozen, probably sysco. They serve super-pretzels (yes like you buy at the grocery store) and their "southwestern ravioli" is frozen cheese ravioli in canned enchilada sauce.

        2. Juicy Lucy's is very good. They expanded into an adjacent building so perhaps it is not so hard to get in there because they do not take reservations. Mark Fischer, Owner of Six89 and Pad Thai in Carbondale, just opened The Pullman in GS. It is right next to Juicy Lucy's. Word of mouth is that the Pullman is good-- but unfortunately I have not been there. Italian Underground is good, I always enjoy myself when I go there. Make reservations if you plan a weekend visit.
