Celebrating 25 years in buisness

Our Story

Customer satisfaction is our top priority 

About Us

Owners Bill and Kim Volk opened the Camp Robber restaurant in 1994 in downtown Montrose, Colorado. The concept for this unique restaurant began many years earlier when the owner's love of the mountains moved them from Albuquerque, New Mexico to Colorado. While on many outings in the beautiful Colorado Mountains, they were visited by the Canadian Grey Jay, nicknamed the Camp Robber by miners. They are known for swooping down on campers and stealing food from picnic tables, or eating right out of your hands. The Camp Robber Restaurant and Robbers Roost Bar is known for only robbing you of your appetite and thirst. By 2006, the restaurant had become so popular that a larger facility was necessary. Our current building was constructed to accommodate a private party room, known as the Aspen Room, a large outdoor patio (enclosed by a uniquely designed fence), a beautiful bar known as the Robbers Roost, and a much larger dining room for our guests. Southwestern flavors are still the main focus for this contemporary-casual restaurant. So, come and enjoy hand crafted foods from creative minds. You will be pleasantly surprised.

We are best known for our specialty Green Chile Chicken Potato Soup. Variety and freshly made menu items are our top priority at the Camp Robber. Choose from salads, pastas, specialty sandwiches, New Mexican food, fresh steaks and seafood, house-made desserts, and hand-crafted beverages. If your taste buds are craving something flavorful, join us for lunch, dinner, champagne Sunday brunch or ask about our creative catering services.
