It is not often that you will find a restaurant that describes itself as serving "fierce" American food. But this Aspen favorite is so popular that no one ever stops to puzzle what "fierce" food actually means. This is one of those rare restaurants that knows how to blend casual with elegance and make it work. The main course menu features certified Black Angus steaks such as filet mignon, 35 day dry-aged rib eye, and a porterhouse for two, which is so big it looks like a throw pillow. The bar offers the largest tequila and mescal list (over 50 choices) in the nation.
The food here was by far a big disappointment. The pretzel sticks that substituted what should have been a nice crusty bread, were undercooked, soggy, and greasy. They were served with French's yellow mustard or the equivalent. My filet was overcooked and a low quality cut of meat. My wife's buffalo and lobster surfnturf was similar to what you might get at a Sizzler Steakhouse. Again, the meat was overcooked and the lobster was salty, kind of like what they serve at Red Lobster. Prices were astronomical for this quality of food. I expected much more as the place was hyped up for sure.
