If you are looking for real food made with organic, local, natural, and fresh ingredients, look no further! If putting quality food into your body is important to you, made by the hands of Chef Vinny and our talented staff, please take a seat in our quaint dining room or casual pub. Currently, the dining room is only open on Fridays and Saturdays, so please make a reservation by calling us directly at 970-668-0340.
We are open every day throughout the holidays! On many holidays, we will not be serving the Pub Menu or Happy Hour, but will begin dinner service at 3pm. Reservations are HIGHLY recommended for any holiday dinner or weekend. Most Friday and Saturday Nights get pretty busy, and we take reservations in two separate seatings. The first is 5-6, the second is after 8pm. If you would prefer a seating between those times, please call after 5pm on the day, as we may be able to work something out – but please keep in mind that that can be risky and you may not be able to get a reservation at all, especially if you have a large group. As the holidays are a time to share with family, we do ask that no children under the age of 7 come in to dine after 6:30pm (Pub AND Dining Room). Our turn times are usually about 2 hours, and we have found that kids have a hard time sitting that long, especially that late in the evening. Please keep in mind that for our dining room, our guests are looking forward to a nice, quiet and relaxing evening. All children must remain in their seats, keep quiet voices, not disturb other guests, and are to be accompanied by an adult at all times.
Come in to Vinny’s for a relaxing and incredible meal with our friendly staff! If you’re looking for a fresh organic salad, a warm sandwich or a multi-course dinner to warm the heart and soul and to fuel your active days in the high country, we’ve got you covered. We carry only the best meats and veggies available. Gluten Free, Vegetarian, Vegan, and other special diets cared for. All of our food is very well made, and drink lists extensive. If you haven’t tried us yet, it is time that you did. We look forward to seeing you very soon!
Vinny’s Euro-American Cuisine is owned and operated by Chef Vincent and his wife Sarah – along with their friends and family. Don’t be fooled into thinking that “Vinny’s” means simple Italian food and pizza! A few of Vinny’s internationally-inspired creations may be traditional, yet deliciously so! It’s all about the people, time, creativity, ingredients and LOVE! As for pizza – maybe some day! Every person working at Vinny’s is fueled by passion, creativity, and the desire to bring the best food and service to you at reasonable prices. We use only the BEST possible ingredients; and nearly everything is Home-Made! Our food is made with only all-natural ingredients! And as long as we can get it (and usually do), everything is also organically grown; free of antibiotics, chemicals, and preservatives which do not naturally occur; locally sourced; humanely raised; and hormone free. There is also NO micro-wave, deep fryer, styrofoam, or pre-made, boxed foods shipped from food suppliers! We believe that these efforts make the food we serve tastier, healthier for our bodies, the economy, and the planet. And, usually, these efforts make the food cost much more for the customer. But, it was very important to Vinny that he create a restaurant where every person could come in and afford to eat. Whether you are interested in the pub menu, happy hour menu or dinner menu, our prices are comparable to many around us, but the food is superior! Come and try it out for yourself! Call to learn about out our Daily Specials! We can accommodate most dietary needs, please inform your server of your personal diet when ordering. Our dining room is one of those “white table cloth” dining rooms, yet without all the stuffy-ness! We keep it clean and professional, with lots of personality. We have a full service bar set apart from the dining room with a more relaxed atmosphere and 2 HD TV’s for viewing sports events. Happy Hour is every day from 3-5pm in the Pub with drink specials and our special $5 taster menu. Kids are welcome in both rooms when seated by 6:30pm, and are asked to stay seated and keep “inside” voices. Our dining areas are small, so it can be dangerous to allow your children to walk around. We do have crayons for coloring, and ask that parents provide appropriate and quiet entertainment for their children.
We are available for private parties and off-site catering. Our dining room seats up to 60 and our bar seats up to 25, or a 40 person cocktail party.
