What our Customers are Saying

“This restaurant rocks, like something you would have found in Gold Hill years ago. The chef and is wife used to run a five-star restaurant in Dunton before relocating to Rico. Glad they made the move. With years of experience, they deliver something which can only be described as top-notch. The food is always excellent and there’s a nice friendly casual vibe about the place. Partaking in a local beer from the Ska Brewing Company in Durango, while wearing blue jeans, would be fine, for example. Located right off the San Juan Skyway, in Rico, 26 miles South of Telluride, The Prospector rivals any restaurant in Telluride.”
