The Gunnison restaurants on this page are restaurants that we've been to and enjoyed. So I'm listing them here for you, along with information about them.
One thing I can say about the restaurants in Gunnison is that there are many more of them now than when I went to school there. So you have a bigger choice than I ever did!
Of the four restaurants in Gunnison that we've been to so far, my favorite is Katie's Cookery. Here's what I have about them:
1) Katie's Cookery: this place is a local favorite and is located in a historical building in downtown Gunnison. You'll find it just south of U.S. Highway 50 on South Main Street.
The food here is American and some of what you might see on the menu includes: half pound charbroiled burgers, (their specialty), vegetarian choices, fresh salads, fresh sandwiches, homemade soups, and daily specials, among other things.
It's a family-owned, cozy little place with very friendly service and is open for lunch and dinner. (Closed on Sundays and December 25th.) We thought the food was excellent and also, if you go during the summer, they have an outdoor seating area.
Address: 112 South Main St., Gunnison, Co. 81230
Phone: (970) 641-1958
Hours: 10:30 a.m to 9:00 p.m.
Pricing: lower to moderate
2) W Cafe: The W Cafe is another popular Gunnison restaurant and is located on North Main Street, where you'll find many of the shops and other restaurants that exist here.
American food is what you'll eat here, and their specialty is breakfast, which is served all day. In fact, their breakfast is special enough that they won the "People's Choice Award" for best breakfast 10 years in a row from 2001-2010. Another thing to know about this place is that you won't leave hungry.
The W Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch, and you can either eat there, take it out, or have it delivered. There's a small delivery charge and the restaurant is smoke-free.
Address: 114 North Main St., Gunnison, Co. 81230
Phone: (970) 641-1744
Hours: Summer, (June-October), 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. every day.
Hours: Winter, (November-May), 7:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. closed Wednesday.
Pricing: lower to moderate
3) Ol' Miner Steakhouse: this is yet another well-liked restaurant in Gunnison and you can find it on North Main street, which is the main shopping street in town.
As you can guess by the name, the food is American. Besides steak, you can also find chicken, seafood, salad bar, and homemade soups, among other things.
The Ol' Miner Steakhouse is open for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, and they can also take care of large banquets and Christmas parties.
Address: 139 North Main St., Gunnison, Co. 81230
Phone: (970) 641-5153
Hours: 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. every day.
Pricing: moderate to more expensive
4) The Gunnisack: this Gunnison restaurant is “trans-fat free”, and is also the People’s Choice winner for the best hamburgers and chicken fried steak. It’s located on North Main Street, not far from the W Café, and on the same side of the street.
The food here is American with a Southwestern flair and they prepare their food from scratch. What a difference that makes! Some of what you might see on the menu includes ground in-house Angus burgers, house battered and breaded shrimp and fish and chips, grilled tuna steak salad, steak, pasta, sandwiches, and freshly baked desserts, among other things.
The Gunnisack is open Monday through Saturday for lunch and dinner. One thing to note about this restaurant is that I found some reviews saying that they charge a “take out” fee. We dined in, so obviously didn’t have that charge but it’s something you might want to keep in mind if you want to “take out”.
Address: 142 North Main Street, Gunnison, Co. 81230
Phone: (970) 641-5445
