Big appetites will feel like they've hit the mother lode at Prospectors Bar & Grill, where the generous portions are outsized only by their colossal flavors. Corn-fed, natural Angus beef plays a starring role on the menu, with steaks that are aged for 21 days before being seasoned with a signature garlic rub or paired next to jumbo Alaskan King Crab basted in rich, drawn butter. Charbroiled burgers made from juicy ground beef or lean buffalo find a perfect match in specialty skin-on fries, while comforting classics such as a flaky chicken pot pie or a piping-hot brick-oven pizza help round out the red-meat focused feast. Believers that every meal should go out with an equally big bang, the kitchen also slings out homemade desserts including a fresh baked deep-dish apple pie and a New York-style cheesecake topped with Oregon Blackberry sauce and served with a fork that spent its childhood in Pennsylvania.
A warm, lodge-like interior accents the hearty, homestyle quality of the cuisine, as diners dig in amid towering natural log beams and Rocky Mountain granite fireplaces. An open kitchen allows diners to watch their entrees assembled from fresh, seasonal ingredients and eavesdrop to catch hints to the chefs’ secret recipes and crushes, while an outdoor patio affords the ideal spot for cooling off with one of the bar’s eight draft or 22 bottled beers.
