Lazy Dog

Growing up, Chris Simms spent time exploring the Rocky Mountains. He enjoyed unplanned adventures, fireside conversations, and the small-town vibe. When Chris decided to create a restaurant based on his experiences, he opened Lazy Dog. Chefs source fresh ingredients directly from farmers. Each day starts early to create everything by hand, including the sauces, dressings, and marinades. Guests enjoy their delicious meals in the cozy dining room or on the heated patio featuring picture windows and scenic views. For dinner, try the butternut squash or chicken tortilla soup with a Cobb salad. 


Called one of Draft Magazine’s “Top 100 Beer Bars,” Firkin is a popular dining destination in the area. It features a casual, yet trendy setting with fun, seasonal decor. Visitors receive attentive service, and the staff enjoys helping everyone find a new favorite brew. The beers feature the finest ingredients, and 30 choices are on tap daily. Enjoy the French onion soup with a pint of Bitburger or Metropolitan Flywheel.

Next Door is an American eatery where visitors can grab a beer at the bar and enjoy a leisurely meal with friends. The menu is full of bold flavors for every palate.
