EAGLE ” John Shipp, owner of The Dusty Boot Steakhouse and Saloon in Beaver Creek, announced this week that he will be bringing the Dusty Boot’s brand of affordable family dining to Eagle Ranch.

After 10 years of developing a reputation as a family-oriented restaurant in Beaver Creek, Shipp looked to one of the Valley’s fastest growing and most exciting areas to open a sister operation.

The new local neighborhood tavern is scheduled to open by next fall and will be located right in the core of Eagle Ranch Village.

The new Dusty Boot will offer two dining options, one with a large open dining area in the back, where a diner will be able to enjoy the Dusty Boot’s signature burgers, steaks and prime rib, as well as a variety of pasta and seafood dishes, plus great sandwiches and salads.

The second choice, in the front of the house, is a classic sports bar and grill that will be a gathering spot for Eagle locals to watch their favorite satellite sports. The restaurant’s location, adjacent to open space and beautiful Brush Creek, will offer a nice setting for bistro-style dining on a spacious deck.

Shipp couldn’t be more excited about his new venture, he said.

“After many years of catering to tourists, I’m excited to be part of a thriving local community. We hope ‘The Boot’ will become a favorite neighborhood spot for both the residents and those working in Old Eagle and the Village.”

The new building, located on the corner of Capitol and Founders streets, will also offer a number of commercial lofts, perfectly suited for professional offices. Like the rest of Eagle Ranch Village, the entire building will be part of Eagle Ranch’s fiber optic network.

With the Dusty Boot’s reputation for offering fresh and creative fare at an affordable price, in a fun, family-friendly atmosphere, it’s Shipp’s hope that it won’t be long before the dust settles to find his restaurant an integral part of a vibrant and active Eagle Ranch Village, he said.
