We like to think Carl’s Tavern is the kind of place Carl Howelsen himself would’ve come to put down some tall beers after a day of long jumps. A place with plenty of good food to enjoy and good times to be had. A place where school teachers, cattle ranchers, bikers and boarders can all feel at home. And a place where a guy known for flying down a mountain with wooden planks strapped to his feet—while snappily dressed in a shirt and tie, mind you—can serve as our collective inspiration to grab life by the horns, try new things, make new friends, and just be ourselves.

And then there’s the food. You’re gonna like the food. It’s comforting. It’s familiar. It’s made-from-scratch. And it’s every bit as genuine as our hospitality. And the drinks? Trust us, you’re gonna like those, too.

So while you don’t have to be a ski-jumping, mustache-wearing, adventure-loving, spitting image of Carl Howelsen to feel at home here at Carl’s Tavern, if that is who you are, give us a call, we may have a job for you.

Carl's is one of the best places for great food and great atmosphere! Check out their happy hour, it's so much fun, and definitely try their brussels sprouts, they are to die for!

Matthew Grasse Carl's Tavern

This is a hip new place in town. Seems to always be bumpin' & jumpin'. Filled with locals and visitors alike. Great food, but I wish their main entrees came with sides, It can get a bit pricey if you put together a full meal. They have a small stage under a giant picture of Carl Howelsen. I've seen some mighty fine bluegrass acts perform on Wednesday nights. Their roasted chicken is phenomenal.
