Map & Directions 536 E. Lionshead Circle
Vail, CO 81657


Westword's Description

Garfinkel’s (or Garf’s, as it’s known around Vail) has been a prime bar and grill for locals and tourists since 1992. Located in Lionshead, at the bottom of the mountain, it’s a lively après-ski place as well as a great spot to watch skiers come down the hill. The massive deck, with its many picnic tables, is the perfect place to catch some rays or enjoy a meal: Garf's is one of the few places in the area that serves late, with a menu that includes homemade soups and chili, salads, burgers, sandwiches, ribs and steak.

Merchant's Description

Since 1992 Garfinkel's (or Garfs as it is locally known) has been a cornerstone in Lionshead (VAIL) for both tourists and locals alike. Our sunny deck provides the best apres ski, sun catching and overall late sping and summer experience.

Over the years some things have changed but the feeling of a classic ski town bar/grill atmosphere remains the same. Seasons pass by, memories are created, good times are had, and lifelong friends are made. The walls inside tell the stories of the past with photos of patrons, athletes, and events gone by. You could one day be one of them.

So come on down to pay us a visit, relax, eat, drink, and enjoy our atmosphere and become part of our history.

    Located in an old building right next to the new Lion's Head development and they have a great outside patio facing the slopes and the best nachos in the world.

    A hot spot on sunny, warm days, Garfinkel's (or Garf's) is known for its outstanding deck. Apps like nachos, sweet potato fries & big soft pretzels are popular. Good kid's menu.
