Dining in Winter Park
There’s a reasonable selection of good restaurants up in the mountain village (see Après-ski tab), but you’ll definitely find a wider selection of eateries in downtown Winter Park, about 3 miles on the free shuttle. Here’s a few to try:
Randi’s Grill & Pub
As well as serving the best pint of Guinness for miles around, Randi’s offers an enticing menu packed with Colorado favourites. Expect Colorado-raised beef, lamb and chicken dishes matched with seasonal produce from a local farm – this is true field-to-fork Irish-American fare, all served in an authentic sports bar setting.
Deno’s Mountain Bistro
Winter Parks’ original chophouse and watering hole. This is a family-owned restaurant serving classic new American cuisine. Featuring a wonderfully eclectic wine list, Deno’s also offers a carefully curated selection of beers, spirits and cocktails. Expect steak, seafood and great pizzas too.
Pepe Osaka’s FishTaco Tequila Bar & Grill
Great name and stunning food. Visit Pepe Osaka’s for the very best margaritas and mind-blowing hybrid tacos. With the largest selection of Tequilas and Mezcales in town, and food options such as a Sushi Burrito, this is an unique Mex-Asian experience like no other.
Hernando’s Pizza Pub
This is a fantastic pizza and pasta restaurant serving the very best of home-made Italian fare with a full bar to boot. The walls are covered in decorated dollar bills left by satisfied guests. Come and leave your mark!
Fontenot’s Fresh Seafood & Grill
A taste of the Big Easy in Winter Park. Expect Southern chicken fried steak, signature Gumbo and a range of high quality seafood, steaks and original dishes. Fontenot’s has a full bar and an extensive wine list.
