Top 3 Restaurants in the Vail Valley

Rob Rolland owns RentVAIL, one of Vail’s most successful and local vacation property management companies here in Vail, and his staff specializes in helping people with their accommodations into vacation condominiums and vacation homes in Vail. And when it comes to dining out, Rob is a real pro. Here are three of Rob’s top restaurant recommendations in Vail and Beaver Creek.
 
Many come to Vail for the skiing or the summer fun to discover an ample source of excellent restaurants. The countries largest ski destination may not have all the charm of Telluride, or the special glitz of Aspen. But two things Vail and Beaver Creek do have, is great snow and world class restaurants. With entree prices hovering between $25 and $40, eating in Vail is not always cheap. But that doesn't stop vacationers from packing into the hot spots for great eats.
