Serving the “best steaks on the mountain”,  and a whole lot more. Wednesday thru Sunday from 4:00 until 8:00pm.  We extend our welcome to just 100 guests per night. This spring we added a patio and offer outside dining.  Evenings can be warm or cool depending on the moods of the mountain gods, so come prepared with a sweater or light jacket.  We are social distancing and following all health department guidelines both inside and out.   Our entire staff has been tested twice and came up double negative.  Come on by!  We’d love to see you!

Born on the 4th of July 1986 and nestled between the Hermosa Cliffs and the Twilight Peaks, the Sow’s Ear is intimate yet airy and well appointed.  With four massive windows overlooking the wilderness, there’s not a bad seat in the house. Come join us at the Sow’s Ear Restaurant for dinner and libations and a most pleasant dining experience in the heart of the Rockies.
