Came here alone on a day trip after a long business busy week. It doesn’t get better than that, friendly people, nice meal, honest price. Had the quiche of the day with green chili and loved it. I recommend for anyone, solo or with friends...More

We came over the Guanella Pass (spectacular!) with the intent of eating at the Happy Camper. It was highly recommended by family. And yes - it's wonderful. We arrived and 11 and both breakfast and lunch were available. The waffles are crispy and the flavor...More

Thanks for visiting and giving us a review! We love the waffles too, and have been making them since 1974. Glad you tried the homemade bread we make daily, I like it with the sandwiches (substitute any bread you like). Hope you come again. Mike

Busy! Service was affected. Long time to order and long time to get our food. The turkey BLAT was OK and was the turkey sandwich. Both had a lot of turkey lunch meat and the avocado was good. Mayo on the side and the bread...More

Thanks for your feedback Jim. As we always expect, when it's busy in Georgetown, we are busy. And being a small restaurant, it's a challenge to serve over 100 people all at the same time. We will work on improving our service model, which also...More

We stopped for lunch and were again pleased to find the service excellent, the food hot and promptly delivered, and the price reasonable. During the summer you can dine outside but the patio closes after it snows. They may close for the winter, but I...More

Thanks for your review Doug! Glad you had a great experience. We are open all year, except for the two weeks for cleaning and maintenance (that was the notice you saw on the door). We will be having Winter specials too, so stop by again!

I visited The Happy Cooker with relatives and they described their food as 'o.k' (they ordered a burger and a sandwich). I ordered the Chicken a-La-King, thinking it would the house version of chicken and waffles. I was wrong. It came out so drenched in...More

Hi Maria P. I am disappointed in your experience. I wish you would have asked the service staff what the menu items included or what they are. As a restaurant customer myself, I don't make assumptions, I ask the service staff and they are always...More

Stopped in for breakfast before doing the train ride. The outdoor patio was very nice as was the food and service. We enjoyed the omelette which was large and filling.

Michael, thanks for stopping by the Happy Cooker and visiting Georgetown. We are glad your experience was enjoyable. And thanks for the feedback on the omelette!

Their food is good and so is their service. They have gluten free waffles which were amazing. It's a little mountain restaurant with big meals.

Thanks Cortney! We love our waffles (our motto is "Waffles & More, Since '74") And the gluten-free waffles are crafted just as the regular homemade waffles. We are happy you were happy :-)

The staff was fun to interact with, and the food quite good. Dining outdoors on the patio added a special touch.
