Kelly Liken draws crowds throughout Vail for their delicious food and atmosphere. While here, you can experience a unique dining experience that embraces a seasonal cuisine of traditional American classics. The restaurant prides itself on using produce sourced throughout the local community, and all meat is of the highest grade. Kelly Liken makes each meal fresh from scratch using only the best ingredients available. One of the most interesting things about the restaurant is that the menu is always changing to bring in new menu items that are in season. No two entrees will appear on the summer and winter menus. In addition, the restaurant boasts a fully-stocked bar and over 250 different choices of wines.
What They’re Known for: Their food. One of the local favorites is the pickled pumpkin salad. Each bite delivers a punch with pickled pumpkins that is mellowed by the cheese and ham. A tangy balsamic drizzle tops the salad for a mouthwatering experience. Another great selection suggested by the locals is the three course meal. If you order the three course meal, you can choose a first and second course, and then an entrée to enjoy. You can create your own combination and find one of the more affordable menu choices at the same time.
What to Watch for: Although the three course meal is affordable, it’s important to pay attention to the prices. Ordering individual plates and appetizers will add up quickly. If you’re a small eater, order a single entrée and skip the appetizer, no matter how good they look.
