Gluten Free Restaurant in Grand Lake, Colorado

The Historic Rapids Restaurant is a true gem, just one block off the main street in Grand Lake (Grand Ave). The view is spectacular, overlooking the Tonahutu River, and the ambiance is perfectly suited to the 1915 historic building. Stained glass and two fireplaces add to the cozy atmosphere.

Dress is casual and comfortable. We understand that the great outdoors has kept you entertained and demands visitors to dress appropriately.

Lunch, appetizers and drinks can be enjoyed outside on the riverside patio with the water rushing by in summer. Dinner can be enjoyed inside. Book an early reservation for a window table. The river can be seen from almost any table in the restaurant so don’t worry about missing out no matter what time you choose to dine.

 Moose love the river too, so don’t be surprised if you get to see a big bull enjoy a meal of willow on the opposite side of the river. Otters, American Dippers and the Mink can be seen on occasion.

Nearly all of our Dinner Menu is gluten free and there are some pretty great options. All Rapids entreés include Rapids’ Salad and sorbet Intermezzo. Our wine list is extensive and you can find the perfect complement to the dish of your choice. Our delicious entreés offer steaks, game, fish and chicken. A vegetarian dish is always available and we are happy to accommodate vegan options on request.

Our Lunch Menu also has the option of a gluten free bun substitute. One of the few Grand Lake restaurants with gluten free bread. Try our gluten free Mac & Cheese version:  the “G’nac & Cheese” made with Gnocchi

The Rapids Restaurant is a “must see” and your taste buds will thank you forever. Take home some special memories and become one of our family of regular diners.
