Seasonally inspired world class cuisine and a fine dining experience like no other brought to the western slopes of Colorado. Enjoy dinner in our dining room or have a drink on the patio overlooking the Elk Mountain fishing lake. 

With ever-changing menus to fit any occasion, you can find the perfect meal to fit your mood from a delicious hamburger lunch to a smokey brisket dinner. Elk Mountain Resort utilizes a Colorado ranch-to-table kitchen with locally sourced ingredients to bring the freshest food to guests. 

Our chef, Daniel Castillo, is backed by years of fine dining experience and has trained with excellent chefs from across the world. Bringing his extensive experience to the table, Castillo perfectly marries Colorado ingredients with a globally inspired cuisine.

Hand-Crafted Cocktails

Our professionally trained mixologists create hand-crafted cocktails made with Colorado distilled spirits. We also offer craft beers that feature local favorites from Colorado including the nearby Horsefly Brewery in Montrose.

Schedule your wine cellar tour and private wine tasting in our silver mine turned wine shaft.

Enjoy a nightcap beverage out on the patio overlooking the lake, or in our upstairs bar and lounge. Find the perfect way to sip your favorite drink at Elk Mountain.
