The food was excellent - better than I expected for a mountain restaurant. The drinks were great and a fun place to people watch as it sits at the gondola base of Ajax.

Even when the night is too chilly to sit outside on the great Ajax Tavern deck, dinner is gonna be great. My friends had trout, and we all enjoyed conversation and people-watching. I knew my classic burger was just what I needed apres-ski, and we...More

We went after all night snowfall, Sunday had a very pricey brunch offered on outside patio minimum $175/pp to sit there! Definitely only for the rich! Inside was small and cozy. It’s worth just coming here to watch skiers come down .

Unpretentious, good food , something fro everyone in your party. Great atmosphere, a lithe noisy , which is part of the experience.... not a place to propose to your fiancé unless you don’t want her to hear you . Classic Aspen

Say "apres ski" and most people picture something strikingly similar to Ajax Tavern - glamorous yet easy. Its sun-drenched, mountainside patio can be seen from halfway up the mountain - a simple target for lunch or cocktails. Arrive, and let the people-watching begin, there's no better seat in town. Located right next to the Silver Queen Gondola, Ajax Tavern is the hub for casual fine dining in an unbeatable atmosphere. The Tavern comes to life at lunch, and the party rolls on well into the night. If you go no further on the menu, try the truffle fries and Ajax double cheeseburger - they earned their reputation.
