Chap’s Grill & Chophouse Honored With 2001 AAA Four-Diamond Award

Vail Cascade Resort is proud to announce that Chap’s Grill & Chophouse has been awarded the AAA Four-Diamond Award for 2001 - making it the only Four-Diamond rated steak or chophouse in Colorado.
“We are honored to receive this distinguished recognition from AAA, for Chap’s, our newly opened restaurant,” said General Manager Gary Fries. “When we closed Alfredo’s, our long-standing, award-winning restaurant, we knew it would take a lot of talent and hard work on the part of our staff to again create that level of distinction. This award is a testament to their efforts.”

According to AAA, Four-Diamond ratings are bestowed on restaurants that “impart a luxurious and socially refined experience that is consistent with fine dining. Menus will typically reflect a high degree of creativity and complexity, featuring elaborate presentations of market-driven or traditional dishes. A cultured professional and highly proficient staff consistently demonstrates a profound desire to meet or exceed guest expectations. Restaurants of this caliber are geared to individuals with an appetite for an elite fine-dining experience.”

Chap’s Grill & Chophouse opened July 2000 and is located adjacent to the Lobby Lounge at Vail Cascade Resort, occupying the space formerly held by Alfredo’s Restaurant. Operating since the resort first opened in 1987, Alfredo’s received numerous food and wine awards, including the prestigious AAA Four-Diamond award. Chap’s features the finest grilled foods in the Vail Valley and entrees feature the highest quality beef, elk, venison, pork, Colorado lamb, chicken and seafood, offering diners a wide array of choices. Chap’s is open daily, serving dinner from 6 - 10 p.m.

Chap’s also serves breakfast and lunch daily. Breakfast is served from 7 - 11 a.m. featuring an elaborate permanent buffet, including specialty omelets. Lunch is served from 11:30 a.m. - 2 p.m. and offers a lighter fare of salad varieties, tasty soups and sandwiches.
