We had a chance to hit the town, sans the two rabble rousing twins, this weekend and our dinner plans brought us to The Back Country Grill for a night out with WP locals and some visitors from Nashville, TN. We hadn’t been to BCG for over a year and it was good to see how things have been going for them since the change in ownership before this ski season. Brad and Emily took over from original owner Bob this past October.
We hit BCG about 7PM and it was busy busy as all of Winter Park was jumpin’ with a Saturday night full of Spring breakers. We had a table waiting so we were able to sit down right away and enjoy a pre-dinner cocktail. We had some grilled scallops and a quirky nacho dish for appetizers. Scallops were great but the nachos as I said were a little odd.
For dinner the table ordered a steak salad, mahi fish special, elk medallions, 2 Cowboy Cut Rib-eyes. The steaks were big, juicy and delicious and the other foods looked great and there were only compliments for the food. We enjoyed a couple of bottles of wine with dinner and the wine list was value priced and quality was good. Service was a tad slow, but hey it was one of the busiest nights this ski season in Winter Park.
Back Country Grill did not disappoint and we had a fine evening out on the town. Brad and Emily are opening a wine and tapas bar next door to BCG called Emelie’s, which will be a great addition to bar/restaurant scene here in Winter Park, Colorado. Overall, we had a great night and we would recommend Back Country Grill for a nice night out on the town with a perfect steak and bottle of wine.
