Fodor's Review

About 10 miles from downtown Boulder, this humble log cabin, on the dirt road going through the former mining town of Gold Hill, hardly looks like a bastion of haute cuisine, but the six-course, $35 prix-fixe dinner is something to rave about. Entrées stick to a Western theme, and may include roast duck with raspberry sauce or leg of lamb marinated in buttermilk, juniper berries, and cloves. Portions are generous, but try to save room for dessert. Service is friendly

and the inn also hosts regular "murder mystery" nights with professional actors in the adjacent Bluebird Lodge.

A creative mountain spectacular

Great unique quisine with a friendly family owned restraunt in the middle of the rocky mountains. Located in the small quint town of Gold Hill, this is an Experiance not to be missed. A true mountain feel loved by the locals and everyone who goes in. Upon entering you get a cozy feeling with rocking chairs and couches around a warm fire. The service is friendly and the onwers Chris and brian Finn are great people who are often around lending a helping

hand. The food is to die for I recomend the cream of peanut soup, a local favorite. All in all a great evening out

Poor Service

The food was good but the service was horrible. For the price and type of food served the service should have been much better. Only offered one glass of wine, 4th course very late, 6th course never came, no water offered had to ask repeatedly and couldn't find anyone to get the check.
