Great service, only 'good' food, moderate value. Pricey, but what you would expect at a resort at a ski area. Overlooked the little lake a the Keystone Lodge-Resort, aspen turning, a bit of snow on the peaks. Very nice.

Vail Resorts needs to take a hard look at this place, it is not even close to the quality level of their other high-end restaurants in Keystone (Alpenglow, Ski Tip & Ranch). I ordered the Brussels Sprouts appetizer and it was just awful. The sprouts were drowning in a spicy mustard that completely overwhelmed the dish. I ordered the striped... More

We went here for dinner on a Thursday night and everything was just amazing. Our server was great he had an attention to details like empty glasses that was exactly what you would want from a place like this. I definitely recommend getting the bruschetta it is the best I have ever had. We had a beautiful table right by... More

We enjoyed wine and appetizers here while staying at the lodge. There was live music during happy hour, which we missed. (((. However, the bar was quiet and I enjoyed a small fresh salad and soup, while my husband had flat bread pizza. Both were fresh and nicely prepared.

Limited menu, great drinks. I think there may be better places to eat but this was satisfactory and connected to the Lodge.

Dinner at Bighorn on a Saturday evening. Wait staff: friendly, helpful, efficient. View over Keystone Lake a huge plus, which is a good thing because lack of quality in entrees needed something to offset. Good wine selection, my salad was very good, fresh, great dressing. the calamari was well prepared, light breading, very tender. My husband ordered one of two... More

Did our family dinner here and it was just okay. Soup of the day was a lobster & crab bisque which was good, but it was served cold. Told the server and was brought the same bowl back to me simply warmed up. Our son's steak was cold too, and cooked medium rare, not medium. My husband had the scallops... More

We decided to take the family out for one nice meal while staying at Keystone Resort. We were able to take the shuttle from our condo to the restaurant. It was not very busy and we were seated at the window where we could watch the ice skating. All of the food was great. Excellent service. Good kids menu. It... More

Ask for a table next to the window to enjoy the view on the lake. Food is good even though a little pricy. The ambient is nice. I would recommend to try Elk Osso Buco and Bison steak.
