Vail Restaurants

We promise: No one will go hungry while in Vail. The offerings at Vail restaurants run wide and deep: from subs, sandwich and hamburger joints to pizza shops, high-end French cuisine and even a fondue spot – and everything in between. Your biggest worry might be how to fit in all the good eating in just a short visit. Vail restaurants, themselves, may be reason enough to extend your stay.

Plan your meals! Start the day with a frothy latte and a substantial egg burrito, or go for an organic fresh-pressed juice, vegan wrap or homemade croissant. Stroll through Vail Village and Lionshead as you eat your way through all the temptations in town – Mexican, American, German and French to name a few. Sit on a deck, listen to the creek and sip on a lovely glass of wine and enjoy all that our restaurants have to offer.

Vail restaurants range from steakhouses where meat is cooked to perfection – sometimes tableside – to  authentic, cozy Italian restaurants. Eating should be a culinary adventure, and the award-winning chefs as part of the Vail restaurant scene ensure it’s so. Luckily, though, the chefs leave the pretense at the door when they make their menus.

So Much Is Offered at Vail Restaurants

One of the perks of visiting this community is that Vail restaurants cater to all ages, diets and culinary wants and needs. The kids can eat a delectable meal as the adults enjoy a fine wine list and culinary explosion. Whether you’re in the mood for a cupcake or sushi, a grilled panini or the best burger around, there’s no doubt your palate will be pleased and your belly full while visiting Vail.
