Clara Lovelace

Do yourself a favor, come here. The atmosphere, the service, happy hour are all phenomenal. Get the filet, the have house gravy/steak sauce that is just about the best thing I’ve ever eaten. My husband got crab legs with his sirloin and they were perfect. Our steaks were cooked to a T and the music is great too! Thanks for the best meal of our honeymoon!

What a fun place to meet for drinks. We got there early to save some seats waiting for friends to show up. We ended up ordering dry seasoned chicken wings and tuna. They were both great. The signage that’s hanging on the wall at this place is absolutely classic. I loved the service that we received from Tyler and Zach. It couldn’t of been better, what a delight. We waited for our friends to show up and then we ordered our dinner. We ordered a 8 ounce filet with a pound of the king crab legs each. YUM! So good. This place was great, affordable and put out some amazing food and drink. Thank you to the owner or owners of this establishment to have fun affordable place to go I felt like one of the locals again. I WOULD go back and I can’t wait until I do!

We come here every summer. They have the best specials. Happy hour from 6-10 with king crab legs, surf & turf, or filet mignon for $23 and drinks for $4.75. Excellent food and the best prices we have found in Vail.

Great underground bar with long happy hours and delicious food. We had dinner here new year's Eve and despite the crowded bar food service was quick and great quality: fries were amazing! Bar is comfortable and laid back with booths, couches and stools.

J See

Go to bar for reasonably priced food and drinks in Vail Village.

Eric Haas

Best price food and drinks in Vail.... Great food, Local hang out spot

Giedrius Stankevicius

This place is a disaster. Waited 2 hours to get the table. The hostess completely forgot us, got our name and number of people in our part wrong. Yes, beer is cheap but thats about it. PS - we never got the said table. Eff this place.

Greta Blamire

Great ahi pub salad. Nick is the best service person ever!

Eric Gifford

There is no dog the Jorge if in vail

Michael Isaacs

Very cool, great drink prices and just the right amount of dank. Get a drink anywhere else and you will pay twice as much wth less atmosphere.

Trent Crull

This place is on the way into Vail village right before crossing the wooden bridge it's to your right looking up mountain towards gondola 1. Descending down stone stairs you walk a hall and you'll find large wooden doors that lead to a pseudo pub lounge and billards hall. Foods great and you can certainly get your fill or try something fancy it's all good here from pub grub to drink. This place peaks at prime time hours so show up a little early or late to skip the rush. Pro tip: don't nagg the bar keeps for drinks they dislike rude customers and will attend to your needs ASAP. Secondly great lounge area for drinks and apps but they close up promptly at 1030. Third if you play a song they dislike on the jute-box it's liable to be skipped. Ha

Ute Nilsson

Drink, shot, shoot pool, hang out. Listen to music. Drink, shot, shoot pool. Listen to music. Good enough to repeat.

Eric Eftink

Not at all worth the money. All of our food was cooked more than requested and we spent far too long waiting on a check.

Dan Cooper

Horrible service, asked multiple times for forks, sauces, napkins, and water. Each request took 5-10 minutes or never. Other waiters had to be asked to get essentials, forks, Bill etc... only found one piece of onion in each of our three French onion soups, nachos were excellent, tuna was hit or miss. I've eaten here every year for the last ten ski seasons. Heading down hill guys. Pun intended

Nicki Strange

Best bar to hang out after a day on the mountain and also amazing food for a really fair price The bartenders are all awesome!

Bill Eason

Great food, relaxed environment

Patrick Zdunek

Cheap food and drinks, super good

Shelly Carlson

Buffalo fries were amazing! We come to Vail every summer and The George is always on our list of places to visit.

Julie Ahearn

Our favorite spot for apres in Vail. Casual atmosphere with pool tables and comfortable seating. Happy hour from 3-9pm with all drinks $4.75 - a steal in Vail. Good food deals as well. Try the nachos and the duck quesadilla.

Agustin Pagano Zavalia

Great bar to chill, play pools, foosball and have a good beer.

Ryland Sarver

Food was really good. Saw Cameron Diaz so that was pretty cool.

Valters Boze

In response to Terrie Hattie: i ordered jack daniels and got it in 18 seconds.

Jeff Hollis

I've always loved to go to the George for late night drinks after a day of skiing. Great food!

Jay Darcy

WOW. This place definitely beat my expectations! In a town where everything seems WAY overpriced, the George is an awesome value. They have happy hour from 6pm-10pm, which includes great deals on drinks and food. I had a delicious surf and turf for $24! Absolutely can't be beat. Their service was also friendly and attentive. Would definitely come here again. Since their menu isn't online, I snapped a few photos of it.

Saied Delagah

Time warp, a bit like Las Vegas, once you go in, you might not get out til 2 am. Fun atmosphere, good food and drink, great prices, and games to boot!

Mike Sabin

Great happy hour drink and food specials....amazing servers, very personable and happy!! Get here before the crowds!!

brian hutchings

Great King Crab and steak. They open at 6PM, get there early if you want a table/booth. It's a bar and restaurant, prices are very reasonable.

Heather Hageman

This place is amazing. Cozy, cheap, and friendly. Pub atmosphere with gourmet food. Legit.

Reese Wilkins

The George is literally the definition of a dive bar. You stumble downstairs to what feels like a dungeon to find 3 rooms full of famous George's, a game room, and tables with couchs for seats. They have cheap you call its until 10pm every night and some really good bar food with an Irish influence. Definitely worth a look if your trying to find something less snoody while in Vail.

Monica Perry

Awesome very reasonable prices , great food we met the owner walking in Vail Villeage Jim he was amazing .

Rodney Austin

Been going to the George for over 5 years now and have highly recommended this place to more than 200 people. Not again, the service was the worst I've ever seen and the food came out over cooked for our complete party. I sent my steak back and it took 30 minutes to receive another one, so I sat there and waited while the other people in our party sucked it up and ate their burned or over cooked food. Won't be returning!!!

Jennifer Wambach

Surf and turf great price, great tasting. Good service and a cute waiter didn't hurt (you know who you are!).

Henri Hugo

Classic ski town seedy bar

Brian Lavery

Fun dive bar that stays open late

Matt Smith

Great place to go if you want to get drunk and feel gross while you're visiting Vail. The incredibly mediocre bartenders here will probably give your card to someone else before you have the chance to close out.

Jasen Ambler

A hidden gem in Vail Village, as it's underneath a hotel and down a hallway. A warm, inviting atmosphere for Apres-ski with reasonably priced food and drinks.

Andrew Andreae

Have been here 10+ times. I only recommend two restauraunts in Vail - Sweet Basil, and The George. The george is simply AMAZING. History: locals tell me it was first opened in the 70s, and became a quintessential dive bar of Vail. Vibe: deep leather couches to sit on, cheap tasty drinks, walls covered in signed memorabelia, and some incredibly funny posters that are classics (see pictures). The happy hour: Best deal in vail, drinks are tasty and cheap, as well as the food. Everyone is happy here. This place is where you should take any local or visitor apre-ski. This is the best apre-ski bar in Vail. A must go to, and its a great value.

Mati K

Probably favorite bar of all people on Vail.

Benny Stichmann

Great local bar atmosphere in Vail village. If you're missing your local watering hole while visiting Vail this is the place for you. Friendly patrons and great service.

kyle hugo

Great bar tenders n foosball!

Claire Longo

Best hot drinks in Vail! I love the orange hot chocolate drink. Nice place to warm up after a day skiing. Seems like a local hangout. Nice to get away from the high price tag of most vail bars.

Niko Potts

When I go out in Vail, "I go The George "

Jen H.

Cool, hip hangout spot for yummy bar food and drinks. Great happy hour prices and selections. Friendly and fast service. Definitely recommend the chicken wings and shepherds pie.

Terrie Hattie

I spent an hour and 30 min in this place waiting on wings, fries and hamburger! 4 other people came in after me and got their orders! The bartender was a DICK and never went to check on the order, he just kept serving his buddies talking about how his contract had expired on his other job and how they don’t want to pay him! It’s you idiot! Big ups to the manager that noticed I had been sitting there forever and came out to apologize and offered me my burger free! Get better Servers; I must say the 1st time I went the bartender whom happened to be a nurse as well was Amazing! Dr. Allen FNP-C, PMHNP-BC, FNP-BC

Kurt Johnson

The George. The classic ski town bar. Where the locals flock and the younger ski crowd come to drink and party. Don't underestimate this underground bar though, they have a dining room with booth seating and couches. Everything from bar food to surf and turf special, it's a must stop for all those going out in Vail.

Linda Devore

Wonderful employees and atmosphere inexpensive compared to a lot of other restaurants.

Kevin Gross

Good job with the affordable drinks and decent pub food. One star down for subterranean ambiance; though a cave can be a cozy place...

Lucas Tishler

Vibes vibes and more vibes go here if you want to black out and be a menace

François Morel

Good beer and food for the price, and cool setting and decoration

Great specials, nice bartenders


The food was absolutely horrible. I couldn't even make it through my meal.

Daniel Harris

Best bar and restaurant in Vail hands down!

Mike C

Wow. Completely took us by surprise. Reasonably priced for Vail and amazing entrées.

bona fide hustla

The happy hour at night is where its at. The prices are fair and the drinks are plentiful. Not to mention food and the atmosphere. Definitely worth checking out for anyone new in town.

Patricktomlinson Tomlinson

Handy spot in Vail village, open till midnight every day of the week, beer, wine, liquor and snacks.

Tony Glassman

Been living here since 2001. Service has gone way downhill. Due to our servers rudeness and lack of serving skills l had to leave with no food and no drink after 30 minutes of waiting. Sad to say after 15 years I'm done going to the George. Thank god there's a million other choices here.

Bob Stat

Great food, friendly stuff, and reasonable prices for Vail. Definitely has locals feel.

vikram bapat

Don't miss the classic mutton biryani here!

Luanne Lewis

Love The George. Go everytime I am in Vail

Lynda Perry

There was an extremely long line to get in. I have a medical condition called Vaso vagal Syncopy, which causes me to faint if I stand idol for periods of time. I explained to the person at the door. He refused to let me in and wait for my party so that I wouldn't faint waiting. I requested the manager. He refused to get him. The people standing in the line even began shouting at me. I will never go to this place even if there was no line if this the treatment someone gets with a DISABILITY!

Greg Werner

A fun place!!

Ron Rico

Very affordable

Sheamus O'Connor

Service want great, small place, nearly impossible to get a drink

toby kershner

Strong drinks... Foods eh.

Chris Paschall

Good food and prices.

Alex Flatbush

Solid happy hour with discounted entrees and drinks til 9pm! Crab legs are delicious but difficult to pry open. Our waiter recommended the duck

john lira

The George used to be one of my favorite places if vail. Their new bouncer has caused enough problems that I’ve been compelled to write this review. At 8:15 on February 10, friends who I have not seen in years were visiting vail and I wanted to take them to the George. I was absolutely embarrassed when he refused to grant me entrance. I understand that it’s his job to make sure negative altercations are minimized but he was absolutely in the wrong. I’ve lived in vail since 2010 and not once have I caused an incident in the George. Zach, Keegan, and nick can vouch for me. As a non-white American it became increasingly obvious that the bouncer was profiling me based on a previous incident with someone who looked like me. The George is better than this one individual. The rest of the staff is amazing and has always been. He is a sore thumb in an otherwise great establishment. Update: May 1 2019 - Several staff members have been incredibly apologetic about my experience. I have not seen Dak (the doorman) since. His actions are not representative of this establishment. The George has some of the best bang for your buck food in town.

Esther Baker

Best service we have had in vail. Super friendly and very efficient. Nice beer selection and the food was awesome!

Morgan Z. L.

Great place for a drink after a long day on the slopes.

joseph alonso

Great food and drink.

Beth Mark

Best restaurant value in Vail

Matthew Logel

The only redeeming factor about this bar is the slightly cheaper drinks.

Andrew Geissler

Good place for a beer and a Philly cheesesteak. Had the games on a few TVs and a very laid back vibe.

Surf Popoyo

Great food and excellent customer service.. the best bar in Vail by far...

Ed Ehman

Great English pub atmosphere. Fantastic happy hour deals. Food is excellent. I had the duck,with two spring rolls and mixed wild rice. All on a bed of greens. Outstanding. Wife had Ahi tuna. Just right. You could eat here your entire stay and never worry that you missed a better spot.

Domosh PS

Nice people and good drinks

Kenneth Caldwell

Best happy hour food and drink

david cote

Hidden treasure!

Shaina Daniels

Dive bar full of locals and tasty food. The fries were nice and crispy.

Jonathan McCarty

Great time, wait staff (Zack) was amazing. Food left nothing to be desired. Definitely recommend.

Clinton Fitch

I like the pub feel of The George and the Happy Hour specials are some of the best in the valley. They serve mostly pub-grub but do have some entree's like Crab Legs and steaks. The bar here is well stocked and the drinks are excellent. While it is not on their menu, you can get a Moscow Mule if you like but their Martini's are excellent. Service can be a little slow at times but that is the norm for most places in ski season.

Ryland Howard

Perfect bar/pub and not Vail-pretentious! Great atmosphere. Burger and chicken quesadilla were terrific.

Hubert Liu

What? Somewhere in Vail with affordable prices? Yep. Divey bar with solid food and decent drink selection. Happy hour pricing is great. I highly recommend the surf and turf.

L Sanders

Great prices on wine! Mediocre everything else. We had the steak and crab as well as the nachos. The only thing that was really any good was the one king crab leg. The nachos were terrible, and the steak was overcooked and tough. The bartender didn't seem to care that we didn't like the nachos.

Konstantin Shvaykovskiy

I am puzzled as to why people would give this place anything but a five-star. For the price point, this is a phenomenal value for the area. The food quality is great. Selection of hot chocolate cocktails put a smile on my face. I loved the interior and atmosphere, but I do admit that this is not for everyone. If you haven't been - I strongly recommend to dine in here at least once during your stay.

Kevin Rogers

Interesting atmosphere, if not a little difficult to locate at first!

Josh The Rider

Extremely chill and fun place

Steven Centlivre

Tucked away down stairs of the Mountain Haus & open til 2 am with music , a pool table food & drinks it's definitely the local spot vistors need to check out.

Mark Boice

Best place in vail to catch a game of pool

Shane Kneisel

Great local vibe.

wombat fondler

Bummer the George was a big disappointment!

Robin Berk

The prices are great and the staff are very friendly. My only issue was I ordered my steak medium well and I received a rare steak.

Jay McGuire

Tomato soup was ragu

Raina Hameer

Just do your stomach a favor and go here. I come up to Colorado once a year and my first stop (okay second, I have to check in to my place first) is always George's. The bar is amazing, the seating is comfortable (and also amazing), they've got the coolest collection of wall art I've ever seen. Now let's talk about the food. Oh my Ramsey it was perfect. My steak almost literally melted in my mouth. I feel like I just blacked out in a coma of taste happiness while eating this meal.

Vanessa Holzmann

Cool, local bar

Andrew Foley

Great dive bar in the middle of Vail

Carol Pizer

We love the George. Great food and fun crowd. A hidden secret in Vail. The duck is the best as well as crab legs , fish and chips and shepherd pie.

Clive Br2

Best stesk and crab in town grate value. Looking forward to going next year.

Rich Gessner

Nice to find in Vail Colorado!

Lauren Butterfield

Bomb food, great drink specials, perfect place to go for Apres Ski.

Pau Vazquez

Every time the food is amazing as well as the service!

Caryn Kramer

Good drink specials. We didn't eat there, but the menu looked ok.

Christopher John Lindstrom

It's a local pub, with great waitstaff, pretty good food and drinks in the reasonable price range. There is a Buck Hunter game, 2 pool tables and friends to make in this very "local" establishment frequented by lifties, instructors and other local employees.

Giselle Mueller

The food there, is delicious. It is fenominal! OMG, it is to die for!

Mimi Duong

happy hour!!

Greg Sowa

Great local's hole in the wall type of place right at the covered bridge in a basement. Amazing aprés specials that last until 9pm!

Nina Falasco

Great place to eat

Mariel Arias

Good food and nice environment

Dean Dubach

Great food & service!

Bert Huszcza

Fantastic...great food, great prices

Clark Mercer

Great local watering hole, w exceptional food. Give it a try.


Great food and atmosphere! Prices were decent considering you're in Vail. Quite a few options in the $10 - $15 range. Tons of dope pictures on the walls to look at like the original rolling stone with the rolling stones. Also had a sweet music playlist we liked the first 6 songs but the 7th sucked but the food made up for it.

Marcy Forbes

Drinks are strong and the surf & turf special is the best in town for the price.

David Moore

Came here with two friends place was recommended by local friends and others enjoyed our meal but certain employee exhibited an extremely intolerant political view. He should stick to serving drinks and taking care of customers instead of perpetuating his political agenda. I noticed that those who want tolerance are the most intolerant.

Julio Cesar Ugarte Liborio

Nice staffing! Joe was a great server. Good job man!

Colette Dominique

Pool, foosball, drinks, and yummy food

A Google User

Drinks in the dungeon. Great happy specials!
