Ajax Tavern Menus

Don’t let the people-watching put you off your game – the food is the main event. Inspired by Colorado's sustainably raised meats and seasonal produce, our menus offer a fresh perspective on traditional tavern fare. Signature menu items include a wagyu Bolognese and the beloved Ajax Wagyu double cheeseburger with truffle fries. Our Après-ski menu features pristine raw bar selections, including fresh oysters, shrimp and crab, as well as an abundance of fine wines, signature martinis, and microbrews.
