This list of places to eat with families is a great reference for local and visiting parents. Crested Butte is well known for having fantastic dining options ranging from awesome pizza joints to five star french cuisine. Great food isn’t just for adults in Crested Butte and many local venues are happy to have the kids join in on the ski town dining experience. Elk Avenue Prime offers a large dining room that is on the fancier side, but still family friendly. Another great dining option in Crested Butte – for any age- is Lil’s Sushi. The sushi is incredible- flown in fresh most days of the week and the service is top notch. A rum distillery may not initially invoke thoughts of a family friendly venue, but Montanya is a great place to bring the whole family. Montanya’s has non alcoholic drinks, desserts and yummy small plates that will make everyone happy. The Secret Stash, a very popular pizza place on Elk Avenue is one of the largest restaurants in town. The Stash welcome kids and offer all kinds of pizza from classic toppings selections to more creative combinations for the refined pizza palate.
On the mountain the Ice Bar is also kid friendly. The little dudes and dudettes can enjoy hot cocoa while parents have an apres ski beverage and take in the beautiful views.
