There are not many restaurants in Grand Lake but the Sagebrush Restaurant seems to be the most popular, the food is good, the location is convenient, the prices are reasonable and it is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sagebrush restaurant is more than just great BBQ. It offers traditional western fare in an authentic setting. Its ribs, burgers, steaks are outstanding, but you can get gluten-free food and vegetarian dishes as well. In the summer local Morales Farms in Granby provides Sagebrush with vegetables and salad greens. You can also find the original Grand Lake jail doors here dating back to the 19th century and admire ranching tools and other western memorabilia from early 20th century. Located in downtown Grand Lake just past Town park. It is open from 7am until 10pm, seven days a week.
The food was delicious, locally sourced, the portions large and the prices more than reasonable. We ate here several times, for breakfast, lunch and dinner since there were not a lot of alternatives. We found the service friendly and helpful, the food uniformly good and the restaurant is located in the center of the one street downtown. The time-honored tradition of cracking whole peanuts and littering the floor with the shells adds to the charm of the historic restaurant. Pan-fried rainbow trout or homemade meatloaf go perfectly with baked sweet potatoes or fresh fruit. Topped off with a frosty glass of IBC Root Beer or The Grand Lake Brewing Company’s Rocky Mountain Red on draft, the Sagebrush BBQ, Bar and Grill will have you refueled and ready to enjoy the rest of your day.
