Hattie Thompson restaurant at River Valley Ranch opens

Hattie Thompson, Carbondale’s newest restaurant, features casual fine dining at reasonable prices in a welcoming atmosphere with an unmatched setting of outstanding, unobstructed views of Mount Sopris.

The restaurant will be serving breakfast, lunch, happy hour and dinner. Breakfast is an abbreviated Grab & Go, with an extensive brunch on Sundays. A full menu is available for lunch or patrons can swing by the grill and order off of The Turn menu halfway through a round of golf. A bar menu is available for a casual meal or a quick bite, accompanied by blended libations and six tap beers. Hattie Thompson’s will be “the place” to Après Play for Carbondale Happy Hour, with $5 drinks and appetizers. Dinner is a culinary experience with a varied and noteworthy menu, great service, a thoughtfully chosen wine list and nightly specials.

The completely redesigned restaurant incorporates floor to ceiling glass doors along the patio, allowing every seat to enjoy the Mount Sopris view. The bar top is a masterpiece of woodworking craftsmanship that has been extended. The bar has three big screen TVs, making it a perfect place to watch any sporting event.

The name pays tribute to Carbondale’s Hattie Thompson, who owned and operated the Pleasant View Ranch. This was one of the largest ranches in the Crystal River Valley and the center of social life for the town during the early part the 20th century. Much of present-day Carbondale including River Valley Ranch rests on land once owned by Hattie and her husband, Oscar Holland.
