Where To Eat In Glenwood Springs
Choosing a restaurant can be a tough task — tastes vary, and everyone likes something different. But whether you’re after an intimate couples’ evening or a quick snack with family between outdoor adventures, Glenwood Springs has whatever your palate craves.
Glenwood Springs Classics
Downtown Glenwood Springs, along 7th Street, is what locals refer to as Restaurant Row. Just across the river from Hotel Colorado, a quick walk across the pedestrian bridge will put you right in the middle of the best food in town.
It’s here that you’ll find The Pullman, owned by chef Mark Fischer. The Pullman is a modern take on an American eatery, pairing innovative takes on simple food with good wine, comfortable surroundings, and exceptional value.
Right next door is Juicy Lucy’s, a steakhouse that has been a staple of Glenwood Springs dining for years. Juicy Lucy’s serves only the finest Colorado Sterling Silver beef, locally sourced elk, lamb, and produce, the freshest seafood delivered six days a week, and an award-winning chocolate mousse.
If you want some top-notch entertainment to go with your dinner, try the Riviera Supper Club and Piano Bar. Known locally as The Riv, this long-time cornerstone of the Glenwood Springs restaurant scene features live music and theater, innovative cocktails, and a seasonal menu designed around fresh and local ingredients.
A few miles’ detour from Restaurant Row, but well worth the drive, is Rivers Restaurant, a classically upscale restaurant with balcony seating overlooking the Roaring Fork River. The menu offers a high-end selection of fresh fish, seafood, and steaks with lighter fare available in the attached tavern.
Food In Historic Settings
In addition to modern offerings, Glenwood Springs also boasts some historic food destinations as well. For a romantic dinner with your special someone, try Barron’s at the Hotel Colorado.
Or if you’re in the mood for heartier fare, try the Glenwood Canyon Brewpub, across the river on the ground floor of the Hotel Denver, where you’ll find classic brewpub food in a family-friendly setting, washed down with one of Glenwood Springs’ locally-brewed beers.
Last but not least, don’t forget to snap a photo of the classic neon gun over the Doc Holliday Tavern, then step inside for a true Western experience. Feeling brave? Try the Rocky Mountain Oysters — a Colorado delicacy.
