This is just an average dining spot. I was excited to give it a try but left feeling a little let down. I have had many "bar food" experiences. Some do it right while others just put out the standards. Bully Ranch just put out the standards. Their food prices were slightly higher due to their location, but offered nothing... More

They have a great patio to sit in the summer and enjoy the weather. I wasn't very hungry so I ordered the spinach/artichoke dip and it was wonderful and way too much to eat. It came in a bread bowl. My husband ordered the Ahi Tuna salad and he said it was great. The portions are very large here so... More

Had a great dinner on the patio at Bully Ranch. The service was friendly and helpful with questions about the steaks on the menu. We loved the giant pretzel appetizer and the jalapeño margaritas (very spicy!)

We find ourselves returning to this restaurant every time we are in Vail. It is very near our place at the Sebastian so it is quick to get to. It is also family friendly (we have two teens) in that it serves food of interest to them and to my and my wife's tastes. Location is great especially if you... More

They do not even advertise it because the Thanksgiving buffet sells out every year. It is a killer feast with so much good food. You are guaranteed to leave with that "I ate too much" holiday feeling.

The veggie black bean burger is amazing! The Truffle Tator Tots are fabulous! This is a great casual restaurant, with indoor and outdoor seating, that has amazing food. Casual and family friendly.
