Named after Denver football hero (think Joe Montana caliber) John Elway, Elway’s boasts a quiet dining experience (and of course sports fiends can catch their Broncos games in the bar section). With over 350 selections to choose from, sampling a glass (or two) from their impressive wine list is a must.
We recommend skipping the overpriced entrees to focus on the appetizers. Their après ski menu offers an excellent array of affordable choices. (My top choice: the Rhode Island-Style Calamari, a creative twist on the traditionally gourmet bar cuisine—the the succulent tempura calamari rings and lemon-based sauce converted this former calamari hater.)

Take the Vail Bus to Vail Village’s Transportation Center. Walk south toward town and then head west on Gore Creek Drive to the Lodge at Vail. Elway’s is located on the main floor.
