Usually I go to a restaurant for the food. At Pine Creek Cookhouse, you go for the view. In the winter, it is 1.5 miles up the road, which is snow covered and easy to walk or ski (or you can take the horse-drawn carriage)....More

The highlight of this trip was the transportation. The service was horrible and they add 18% gratuity automatically. Food was just average. They did have some nice vegetarian options on the menu.

Call the restaurant. Like many places in Aspen, they are seasonal. A lot of places close mid to end of October until December.
