A hearty bowl of soup — just the thing to warm and fill you up after a day spent skiing and riding on the slopes.

That’s just as true today as it was in 1972 when The Stew Pot opened on the Snowmass Village Mall. Offering sandwiches, salads, chili and freshly made soup and stew of the day, this restaurant serves simply great food, explains owner Fletcher Duke.
