Crested Butte Restaurants & Bars

Chances are you’ll probably work up an appetite while you’re here. The good news is Crested Butte has some serious dining chops (lamb if you prefer), especially for its size. With over 50 restaurants, bars, distilleries, and nightlife venues in the area, you’ll want to use this guide to know which ones are best for your palate and for your budget.

Don’t miss the 5th annual Colorado Crafted Festival Saturday March 2nd, with live music, over 25 craft breweries, wineries, distilleries, and local food offerings.

Fresh & Local

Discover new flavors from local farms to countries around the world. Enjoy craft brewed beer, award winning locally distilled rum, coffee beans freshly roasted in town, and organic juice smoothies of every variety. Apres-ski options range from burgers & beer to cocktails & small plates. All of these culinary creations are available within walking, biking, or a quick shuttle ride’s distance (most are on/off of Elk Avenue).

Almost every restaurant and bar is independently owned and operated. And there’s no dress code anywhere in town so feel free to show up in your ski gear, pajamas, or tuxedo. Questions on the best Crested Butte restaurants or what to eat? Contact us
