We went to Lil's for dinner because it's a popular place with lots of options. The food was prepared well and presented beautifully.

We stopped in without a reservation, but luckily the staff quickly made room for us at the sushi bar. The service, even on a busy night, was fantastic. The sushi appeared and tasted very fresh. Being able to watch the sushi chef prepare the meal...More

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...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 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.
