Leaving for NY tomorrow but taking the kids back for a 3rd time. It's an interactive type of restaurant. You pick a steak (the fillets are great) or chicken from the inhouse butcher and cook them yourself hibachi style on a large grill

Ten of us went to the Mint two weekends ago. We were exhausted after a long serious day of skiing and VERY hungry. The waitress came to our table and told us how the restaurant worked. Apparently, there were only two things that they would actually cook for you. The Prime Rib, which was over $30, excluding sides. There was a fish as well, but that was also pricey. I was exhausted and really took issue with the fact that I had to PAY over $25 for a steak with no sides and cook it myself and bring it back to my table. If I wanted to make my own dinner, I would have taken my buffalo tenderloins from my fridge and put them on the grill at the condo. The cost: $5.50, NOT $25.00!!

We choose to get ourselves salads from the salad bar, which consisted of iceberg lettuce, some passable dressings, about six different veggies (cucumbers, tomatoes, etc.) and white bread. Now you can get a salad bar at Whole Food for $5.99 a pound and I consider this pricey, but at least it's HIGH QUALITY. This salad was $7.00!! And the quality was a 1 out of 5. I was starving, so we tried to order appetizers, which we heard were cooked for us (like a normal restaurant). They ranged for $10 - $12. (The waitress told us they were half that, thank god, we had her check exact prices.) We passed. I ordered a baked potato with sour cream for $4.25 (and I didn't have to cook it.) I wound up sharing it with my boyfriend, since the waitress ignored him when he wanted to order his own.

The coup de grace was when the waitress presented a bill with 18% GRATUITY INCLUDING THE MEALS THAT WE GOT OURSELVES!!!

I have no issue playing for quality. I frequently eat out at restaurants like Vita, Kevin Taylor, etc. But I won't pay those same prices for LOW quality. Take a pass on the Mint!!

Pros: It was warm (except by the door.)

Cons: overpriced, poor quality salad, bread, you have to cook the meal yourself, bad service, lack of privacy in bathroom

Fantastic Prime Rib!!! My husband and I ate there on a Wednesday night, which happens to be all you can eat Prime Rib. If you don't order the Prime Rib you do select your own steak or seafood and cook it yourself. This does not appeal to us, so we chose the prime rib. It included the salad bar. We also ordered a side of asparagus that was wonderful. In the future I would skip the other sides. My only complaint was that if you are not in a hurry, make sure you tell the staff, as our Prime Rib arrived just as we put our forks down from the appetizer. We hadn't even a chance to go to the Salad Bar. We felt quite rushed even though there were only 3 other tables at the time. (We went early 4:30). But the beef was as good if not better than some leading steakhouses in Denver. Would definitely go again and look forward to bringing others. We talked about it for a week straight after returning.

Pros: great beef, cozy fireplace, perfect while in the mountains with the snow

Cons: service is not in line with the top steakhouses

A fun place where you pick out your steak at a butcher shop and then grill it yourself. The steaks are the best we have had, great flavor. All you can eat salad bar and garlic toast.
