Deno’s Mountain Bistro

Winter Park’s Original Chophouse & Watering Hole

A truly historic spot, Deno’s Mountain Bistro was originally constructed as a stagecoach stop in the 1900’s. Built with log, stone, and brick, it was converted several times until bought by a young Deno Kutrumbos in 1976. Since then, Deno and his children have turned the once-stagecoach location into a Winter Park, Colorado favorite.

With such a long historical presence in Winter Park, it’s no wonder why it’s menu has accumulated so many delicious classics. Regardless of the heritage or style of the plate, each meal is served with impeccable service and wonderful presentation.
