Clark & Nicole's Favorites

Vail is known for its fine dining, but there are a wide variety of places to choose from to accommodate your mood! Here are a few of our favorite spots ranging from casual pizza, to high-end fine dining.

We recommend reservations, as most of these are in high-demand on summer weekends.

Vendetta’s $$
Great pizza and Italian in the heart of Vail. One of Clark and Nicole’s top-picks for casual spots!

Bully Ranch, Sonnenalp Hotel $$
An American~Southwestern menu and fun atmosphere. You can’t miss a Bully burger and mudslide during your stay!

The Red Lion $$
Casual, afternoon happy hour or informal dinner.
Local’s spot and great for live music in the evening and late night.
Nightclub -- 21 & over after 9pm.

Mountain Standard $$$
Very Popular and right on the creek in Vail! Open wood fire cooking with rustic and bold flavors.

Sweet Basil $$$$
Any local’s favorite place for a special occasion. Lunch and dinner. Colorado fare with fresh fish and Asian influences.
