A laid-back place for an upscale dinner

On a recent trip to Colorado, we chose to re-visit the Keystone Ranch after a 20-year absence. According to our waiter, "not much has changed". This is a good thing! I had the four-course dinner (Sea scallop, soup, Venison, Banana Split and Double Fudge Brownie Sundae), and my wife had the... read more

This historical restaurant has a beautiful view from the terrace but it was too chilly on an August evening to sit outside. The inside had a cottage feel with beams and low ceilings. The wait staff was nice and the wine steward very knowledgeable. The food was good but not outstanding as I was expecting. There was a number of... More

A special couple were celebrating a 59th wedding anniversary along with our 52nd, so we chose Keystone Ranch Restaurant. The menu was sophisticated, the service outstanding and we could look out any window and be moved by nature's beauty. The food was quite good and servings could be criticized as meager by fat Americans, but reminded of our penchant to... More

Out of the way restaurant with a great menu focusing on local game (trout, venison, bison, boar). Lovely ambiance, rooms overlooking the golf course. Not cheap but well worth the expense; it is a lot less than your standard steakhouse and has a LOT better food. Everything is seasonal and fresh.

We were there in Feb 2015. The sleigh ride was incredible. We really enjoyed the evening. It was just my 10 year old daughter and I and it is such a small group - it was so much fun. The singer/guitar player was excellent. Food was wonderful. I can't say enough! Look forward to going in the summer too.

We have been here prior and again we were impressed. We have a condo in River Run and Keystone Ranch is on our list of favorites. It is not cheap, but they serve excellent food and the service is wonderful. We have a teenager, most of the items on the menu are not really things he would eat. So, they... More

The food here is excellent. Period. The wine list is also very good. and the location wonderful. Like the other resort places in Keystone they have annoying surcharges that they don't tell you about but other than that we would strongly recommend this restaurant. Ask to have your dessert by the fire in the lounge.

We own a condo in Keystone, so over the past 7 years we have hit many of the local restaurants. For some reason, we missed this one until last week. This is one of the restaurants owned by Vail Resorts along with another gem Ski Tip Ranch. This restaurant is prix fixe, so you will want to be comfortable spending... More

We were up in Keystone and Beaver Creek skiing and wanted to have a really nice dinner. We had been to the Ski Tip Lodge and loved the restaurant there. However I read about the Keystone Ranch Restaurant and was intrigued by it. The menu looked delicious. We were warmly greeted by the entrance and introdauced into a cabin-like restaurant... More
