post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
We will be at Beaver Creek and Vail for a week. Two families with teenage children. Any recommendations for very good family dining ?

I guess it depends on whether you want to stay IN BC...

With a short drive, you can get to many of our local spots.
In Edwards, the Gashouse(BBQ/American food) is a casual, relaxed atmosphere. Very good food and I think, reasonably priced.

In Minturn, one of my favorites is Chilly Willy's, for TEX-MEX. Fajitas to die for, and great Flavoritas! Behind CW's is the Minturn CC, where you cook your own steaks and seafood. Across the street from CW's is the Saloon (mexican) with very good Margaritas.

If you are in Vail, Bart and Yeti's (Lionshead) has arguably the best burgers in town. Good ribs, stews etc, too. DJ's(Lionshead) is THE place for breakfasts! (cash only) Billy's Island Grill is very good steaks and seafood in a relaxed setting.
In Vail Village, The Red Lion is great, and Los Amigos is quite good!

I think at any of these places, you will find something for even the most diverse group of diners!

I'm a Golden Retriever owner and feel right at home at Bart and Yetti's. Always go there, it was one of the places I ate at on the first trip out there years ago. Thanks for the info on Mexican at Minturn. Have done the steak thing a few times, will mix it up with some good Mexican now at Minturn. I've also had very good raviloi in Vail at the Pizza place(Pazzo's spelling). They have to have the best Italina salad dressing I 've ever had anywhwere. Love the Red Lion and the pictures on the wall. Alot of great history.

Blue Moose in the Village @ BC is a Good place for Pizza, what kid does not like Pizza?
post #6 of 18
very good? Beano's, Grouse mountain, splendido, mirabelle, golden eagle.

Pizza at the Blue moose is very good and a great wine by the glass selection

Dusty boot is another favorite, inexpensive, good food and a good selection of micros on tap.

Tuscanini's in the village for Italian, over priced and aggregiously over priced wines. Go down to Avon for pasta.

for lunch: prime rib (spruce lodge) and barbeque (redtail lodge) right on the mountain at BC. Both excellent - really good food.

Prime rib for lunch? How can you ski after that? A slice of pizza and a double expresso at saddle ridge.......That's a lunch!

Peanut butter, Doritos, and a diet Coke from home on the tables outside the Ritz Carlton watching people in fur coats paying $19 for a hamburger, that's lunch at the Beav.

Oh come on, its not always THAT bad, there definitely is money there but its only like that when the Houston and Dallas crowd show up over Christmas and New year

You're right, but the burgers are $19, and I do laugh at the people staying at the Ritz who don't ski. When I just took vacations to CO it didn't seem that weird, now that I live here it does.

The restaurant selection in Minturn is one of the reasons we stay there. I could eat (and drink) at the Saloon every night!

Yes, the Ritz is over the top for sure. Some of the clientele there is just funny. Lots of folks from middle east and other non-typical skiing nations who really look out of place. I have chatted with some and they are really nice people. Most are in awe of the mountains and not sure what to make of the snow and cold. We were there in Mid-december and ended up chatting with Chris Anthony in the deli for about 15 minutes. A really nice guy, no aires, just loves skiing. Good guy.

Right on... PB&J for lunch with a candy bar, maybe some hot cider or soda from the lodge at the base of Grouse Mtn. Nothing like enjoying my home-made lunch while others pay $12 for a BBQ sandwich (although really good) or more for something else.

BTW, marshmallows and whipped cream were on the condiment table. Makes a fine dessert.

While we are on 19 dollar hamburgers and candy bars and doritos. How about the 12 dollar smores at the Hyatt.
post #17 of 18
I forget which resort it was but they were selling $5 sticks to make smores with, and people were buying them.

So I know this thread is a bit old, but I just tried out Coyote Cafe (http://coyotecafe.net - .net, not .com. confused me for a bit there!). Anyone else been there? Pretty inexpensive and delicious.
