Great location at the end of town. Fabulous meal, best in town from what we experienced. Small menu, but well diversified with unique options.

We went with some friends who were visiting, and hoped for a nice dinner. I knew this place was on the pricier side, but, I had hoped atleast we would have a nice dinner at the cost. Nope. I ordered the Colorado Pecan Crusted Bass, which was ok, but it was smothered in a fruity sauce I could not figure... More

We have dined at this restaurant many times in the past and it has been great with a great atmosphere. At our last visit the menu had lost a few great dishes and the personal were a bit sloppy for our tastes. It is still good but we would not rate it in the great category. Perhaps it was just...

This was a to be a special celebration of a 40th anniversary on a gift certificate from our children. We were just done with our appetizer and finishing our salads when the electricity went out. Our server, who had been unfriendly to start with, told us that it would be 30 minutes. We waited 45 minutes and the server returned... More

Rapids combines good food, great service and a beautiful view for a great stop for lunch or dinner. We shared a smoked salmon appetizer that was flat out great. Smoked just enough to add to the salmon flavor instead of overpowering it. It was served with a soft cheese and plenty of tasty crackers. A great app, and portion perfect... More

We had the grilled chicken on croissant sandwich. The chicken was very tender and tasty. The bag of potato chips may not have been the best choice to accompany this sandwich. Fries would have been better but not offered. Sitting by the window looking out at the water tumbling over the rocks was peaceful.

We had dinner in the restaurant and were lucky enough to get a seat by the window. It was beautiful scenery with the river running by the restaurant. We both had the filet, they are known for their steaks. It was a bit pricey, but for a special, romantic evening, it was perfect. We will do it again for special... More

We were a group of seven friends enjoying a delightful reunion lunch. Ethan did an excellent job of taking care of us, and we enjoyed the rustic ambiance of the restaurant. They had displays of lovely china plates even in the ladies bathroom, which also featured a beautifully decorated sink and an elegantly dressed mannequin. All our meals were very... More
