Nice location, nice decor, less than mediocre food

The restaurant claims to be a fine dining place despite its name. In the local dining guide it is listed among "signature" Keystone places. Well, signature or not, it is far from fine dining. As a matter of fact, it is far from average decent dining either. Following other reviewes, I ordered a... read more

I was looking forward to a night out at a restaurant that offered actual adult meals but also catered to kids. The facility itself was nice and had a good view of the skating lake. I ordered duck confit with bean ragu. I was disappointed because it was very salty. My wife got lobster mac and cheese which was enough... More

I foolishly went here for a third Christmas dinner since they once were the only place to eat in town and i was hoping for a rebound from my last visit in 2012. Foolish me. The taste of all foods were bland including such inviting names as shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque and lamb at the carving station. The turkey was... More

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

The food was well prepared, very tasty, and a wide variety available. Our server was friendly and efficient. Our only disappointment was there menu on web site is completely different... More
