Worst dining experience ever. What a disappontment - a special occasion turned into a nightmare. Only 4 out of 6 meals arrived, nobody checked in with us, the other two people never got their dinners. Waiter missing in action, manager not concerned to fix the problem and said she could not intervere with the running of the kitchen and actually asked it we want our food! Now we know why this restaurant is empty in peak season, while the others have lines out their doors - not recommended at all and after being regulars under the old management, we wil never eat there again and as part time locals will spread the word how bad it is.

We had both dinner and breakfast at the Woodstone Grille, which is located in The Grand Lodge. Both menus are somewhat limited in scope and variety. The quality was good and the prices moderate. The wine list is even more limited than the menu (but the beer choices are considerable). Service was a little slow at dinner, but much better at breakfast. The decor is modern and appealing.

There are some really good things about this restaurant. The smoked trout and honeycomb appetizer was amazing, and the ceasar salad good...Just don't expect them to be able to pour a drink of any kind. Stick to beer or wine because over Labor Day Weekend, they have no bartender, and even if you tell them how to make the drink...it comes out horrid....Service good and gratuitous...overall it was okay, but nothing to write home about.

First time here, probably won't be back. Highlights; diverse but small menu, food tasted good, no wait to be seated, reasonable cost. Lowlights; apathetic wait staff, saw cooks eating with fingers while cooking, awkward table layout (all tables off busy service aisle)

4th of July night, so we made reservations. Which is a nice option, although we didn't need them (the restaurant was only about 1/3 full). We might have learned why . . .

We were seated in either a dead zone or in a section with an inattentive server. We sat for . . . what seemed like a long time (probably only 5-10 minutes) . . . without anyone stopping by. The tables near us (i.e. right next to us) received a visit from a server immediately. My friend finally grabbed the host and informed him we "haven't even received water yet." Heh heh. I thought that was a little . . . honest, but it had the desired effect. A waitress almost immediately appeared at our table with water and a smile. She was very friendly and attentive for the rest of the meal.

The beer selection was a bit limited for a Colorado town (would have liked to see more microbrew choices). We started with the fried olives. I know. Right? What were we thinking? But they tasted good, if a little strange. Not sure I'm a fan. We think they had a bit of a lingering effect on our digestive tract.

We each ordered the ruby red trout . . . which I'm convinced was actually salmon. Google says otherwise, but I'm not sure. It was properly cooked and tasted pretty good, but . . . just didn't seem like trout (we'd hoped for something that was more local - Google tells us that ruby red trout is farm-raised, not wild caught).

We also each had a cup of the potato soup, which actually came in a cup. This was delicious - even in July. Would be killer after a day on the slopes.

So quite a mixed review. For the price, we expected more. A better menu. Better service. Better food. Not horrible, but not really notable, either. Maybe we were spoiled by the local restaurants down in town. We just left feeling . . . unsatisfied.
