Garfinkel’s is a hot spot in Vail and the locals simply call the restaurant Garf’s. The restaurant caters to both tourists and locals all year long. And for good reason, too. You can sit back and enjoy a delicious bite to eat and wash it down with a cold brew after a long day. The atmosphere is fun, lively, and there is always someone to start a conversation with. Garfinkel’s boasts a beautiful sundeck that you can sit on and enjoy your food while looking at the surrounding mountains and scenery. Don’t miss the opportunity to hang out in the locals’ party spot while you are here and stop by Garf’s after your day out on the slopes.

What They’re Known for: Garfinkel’s is known well for their delicious nachos. This appetizer is the perfect game day starter and pairs well with a cold beer right next to you. The nachos come loaded to the ceiling with toppings, and you can choose from beef, chicken, or a combination of both. Garf’s is also well-known for their delicious entrees offered after 5p. You can find the finest cuts of meat including a New Zealand rack of lamb, a ribeye, and a filet.

What to Watch for: The atmosphere. The atmosphere is upbeat, fun, and a family joint. For something quieter, this is not the place. Still, you should be able to relax, enjoy some delicious food offerings, and get taken care of by the attentive staff members.
