Restaurants & Dining in Grand Lake
Grand Lake Restaurants and Dining Options
In Grand Lake, eating out is an adventure in itself. There’s no shortage of cafes, burger stands, happy hours, ice cream shops, bars and restaurants in Grand Lake to satisfy even the pickiest of palettes. Although the town is known for honoring the classics–namely burgers, fries and shakes–there’s something to be devoured for every mood, occasion and craving, from gourmet dishes served riverside at The Historic Rapids Restaurant to tossing peanut shells on the floor at the lively Sagebrush Bar & Grill.
Prefer a picnic? Pop into Grand Lake’s Mountain Market to assemble your own spread of salad and sandwich ingredients, or carry out from one of the many quick-service spots in town, like Blue Water Bakery.
Some of Our Favorite Restaurants
Heading out on the lake? Get your morning caffeine fix at Jump Start on the Grand Avenue boardwalk, or The Wake coffee shop at the Grand Lake Marina. Afterward, boaters congregate on the waterfront patio at Charlie’s Bar and Grill to whet their whistles and listen to live music.
