We've been looking for a restaurant or bar that serves prickly pear margaritas like the old Zuni Grill in San Antonio. We've found our spot!!

For a great experience I would recommend grabbing a seat at the bar and enjoying a meal there. The mixologist/bartender can answer any questions you have about any of the food or drinks. He creates some great cocktails from scratch. I recommend ordering a hot rock for a fun appetizer, the cuts of meat are delicious! I didn't have any... More

Best seafood combo menu in Southern Colorado. It is part of the most beautiful valley in the western United States . Get the Dynamo Shrimp.

Our Concierge said this was a good spot for Sushi. He was right. The Rolls and Nigiri were excellent. The Martini was very nice too!

We ate here after our Aspen to Crested Butte Hike. We really enjoyed the food and the fun atmosphere. Had a nice waitress that really helped us out with food choices. Highly recommend!

We really enjoyed Lil's. It's tucked away just off Elk. So you can miss it if your not paying attention. We were given a 30 minute wait but were sat well before our given time. I was a little disappointed with the bartenders. They were very busy but never even acknowledged my friend and I looking to get a beer... More

We walked in early to make a reservation and they could accommodate us on the same day which was great! When we were seated we had a young family member providing water. He was fantastic! We ordered a few rolls spicy tuna and a rainbow roll which were all delicious. The food was very good. They were out of mussels... More

I've eaten a lot of sushi from all over the country. Their sushi was very good, but really overpriced. But in their defense, it is Crested Butte. They also use a lot of vinegar in their sushi rice which sort of took away from the flavor of the fish. Nori we had that night was also really hard to chew.

First, the atmosphere is good probably because it sits in downtown Crested Butte. You could put a Subway in and I'd tell you the atmosphere was awesome. That being said though, this is a quaint and intimate and the food was very good. Service was also really good.

Mediocre service and food. Does not even approach fine dining standards even though they charge more than any but the best restaurants in Boulder/Denver. I have had better sushi at King Soopers. For a more detailed review check the Y*** site.

We are known as having the highest quality fish in town. Our fish is flown in 6 days a week within 24 hours from the docks. We offer a nightly happy hour every night at the bar from 5:30-6:30. In the summer we have a beautiful patio with heaters...and soon a fire pit table! We are a casual restaurant with a warm friendly charm, just like our town of Crested Butte. Private parties available and reservations are recommended but not needed.
