The food is so fresh, and special attention is given to presentation and the finest ingredients. To avoid waiting, go early, or call ahead for a reservation.”

Park
“This is a beautiful place to stretch your legs especially if you choose to walk the beautiful, paved river trail from town (at the end of Railroad St) out to the park. This is just under a mile walk one-way, otherwise you can drive there from highway 550 north of town to Riversage Dr. There are hiking trails laced through the adjacent sagebrush hills across the road from the eagle statue culminating in incredible views from the top of Boot Hill. Dennis was a famous actor (Gunsmoke) and longtime Ridgway resident who generously donated the land for the park to the town.”
