We took another couple to The Ranch and they agreed that it is a very special restaurant. The menu has a Colorado flair, with wild game and Colorado lamb options that are delicious but there is always a fresh fish alternative as well as excellent steak. The setting makes the evening--a historical log ranch home elegantly decorated with oriental rugs... More

We dined last night at the Keystone Ranch, and cannot say enough about the great food, attentive but not hovering service, and pleasant atmosphere (quiet, relaxing and comfortable). Our table had views of both Quandary and Buffalo Mountains, and we watched the early arrival geese play on the snow that still covers the Keystone Golf Course. This restaurant serves wild... More

A Five course Chef Tasting Menu , great wine parings, wonderful service, and a snow covered meadow view from your window table make for a delightful evening. Having guests adjourn to the fireplace for after dinner drinks and dessert is marketing genius. The tables are turned for other guests and you are allowed to bask in the coziness of a... More

With a little call ahead the Ranch Culinary Team, lead by Chef Vlass executed on a perfect evening. My wife and I were greeted, seated and presented with a glass of champagne and wished the best on our anniversary. It had been over 10 years since we had last eaten at the Ranch. The food was exquisite and the atmosphere... More

My girlfriend and I went to the Ranch for the first time and our decision to go to the Ranch will not be one we soon forget. Our experience was worth EVERY PENNY. From the moment Andrew picked us up from our house until the moment he dropped us back off, we were smiling from ear to ear. The staff... More

Everett provided great service as our waiter. As a ski area local, he was knowledgeable in a wide area of activities. After a lovely salad with pomegranate, our entrees of salmon & steak were cooked to perfection and included some tasty sides of glazed vegetables and legumes. The huge log lodge was a wonderfully romantic setting. I feel this was... More

Our waiter, Everett, did a nice nice job taking care of us. Menu has something good for everyone. The foie gras appetizer is always a winner! Grand Marnier souffle is the best part of the meal, served in the fireplace living room. This is wonderful venue for a special meal.

Reserved for Christmas night and had the 4 course fixed price menu + appetizer. My pacific red fish was sautéed perfectly ,but had a distinctly "fishy" smell . I had to preorder the desert (soufflé ) to be ready for serving in the parlor / fireplace room after dinner. After waiting 20 minutes in the parlor room ,I asked about... More

The food was not properly prepared. My wife had to send her steak back to have it brought to the wellness she requested. My duck was supposed to be "crispy" as per the menu, but it was soft and very under done. My spinach was over salted and generally the meals should have been better for the price. The ricotta...

We saved our last meal in the mountains for the Ranch. Having been to Alpenglow the year before, we decided to go to the ranch. We went early, so we were seated at a table with a great view. The service was attentive. The food fabulous from the appetizer -- an amazing tasting of local favorites. The barley soup was... More
