We just got back from Germany and I had Spatzle all over the place, but honestly, NOTHING compares to Pepi's. I have been dreaming about this Spatzle for months so had to write a review. I called ahead and left a voicemail because we were there for New Years and they called me back that same day. I made reservations... More

Over the years I've dined with my family in the Antler Room downstairs during ski vacations. It's always been great. Today my wife and I stopped in for lunch after an absence of at least 8 years. The service was great and friendly. Wines are expensive, but I ordered a half bottle of Beaujolais-Villages for $16 that was just fine.... More

Stopped here because we had a hankering for German food. Sat at the bar and received stupendous service. The bartender gave us a tasting of Hungarian Goulash and it was so tasty! We ordered the bratwurst dish with purple cabbage, warm potato salad and sauerkraut. The brats were great, the buffalo was the tastiest. The sauerkraut & potato salad was... More

Spent a night here when a singer Billy Cyphret was playing, he was great and created a great atmosphere. Enjoyed the Chandon Rose and my husband enjoyed the bourbon. Did not eat here but would go back and try the food.

Food was great and service warm , professional and kind I have... More

Pepe's has been a Vail icon for as long as I can remember. Every time I have visited Vail, I always stop in for at least one meal, and am never disappointed. It has wonderful seasonal menus and I always look forward to the weiner schnitzel. I visited for the first time when I was in school. 30 years later,... More

We were there a couple of times last week. It's spring ski season so we sat on the outside patio both times. A great spot to people watch. We even saw Pepi himself! Great food and good service. It's not cheap, but it is Vail. Highly recommend.

We sat in the antler's room, and there were 11 of us. The decor really makes you feel like you are in a little cozy cabin somewhere isolated and in the woods. The restaurant is known for its game section, so we all decided to be a little adventurous. I ordered the duck which I barely even tried because everyone... More

Very tasty food from a nice restaurant and very well known around Vail. The owner is one of the Vail founders and this is a traditional restaurant that you might have to check it out before leaving town!
