Jesse the bartender exceeded my expectations. She was so accommodating and friendly!! I left an item at the bar and she held on to it for me without hesitation. Super cozy 'log cabin' atmosphere. Didn't try the food but will definitely be back because I heard the burgers are not to be missed... Thanks Bully Ranch for a lovely night!!

The best things about this restaurant are the interior (funky doesn't begin to describe it), the location, and the food. This is a fun place to eat, in good weather or bad. We were lucky to get an outdoor table on a good day, and we had the added bonus of being able to watch a cowboy wedding at the... More

Bully Ranch is deservedly busy serving very good burgers (had the Bourbon) and all round good casual food. Ribs and tuna sandwich were good. Truffle tots are popular but found them to be rich tasting with the truffle oil. Lots of families (in part due to reasonable prices by Vail/big city standards) but also many couples and adult groups. Gets... More

When we visit Vail, we do look forward to dinner at Bully Ranch and have done so on at least 10 occasions. A few times we haven't been able to get a table and that has been a bummer. If you go early, it is easier to ensure they can accommodate you. The location is very central to Vail Village... More

Bully ranch delivers delicious food, well constructed cocktails, and friendly service! The candied bacon burger with truffle tots is a sofisticated twist on comfort food while the scallop entree is elegant and delectable! Bully ranch never disappoints :)

Small restaurant. Appetizers were good. Dinner was okay. Our waitress was not the most chipper so it took the experience down a notch, but the overall atmosphere was what you would expect at Vail, expensive.

What a cool restaurant. The decor is really quite fascinating, someone obviously put a lot of thought and effort into it! Service on the slow side, but incredibly friendly and helpful and besides the place was packed! Starters for the table of Bavarian pretzel and artichoke dip...the pretzel honestly ruined any other pretzel for me, because it was divine! Everyone... More

The host and server where fantastic! However the food was not. I am a local and brought friends that were visiting from out of town to Bully Ranch for "the best burger in the valley." It was disappointing. The fries were practically frozen when they made it to the table, the burger was tasteless. Absolutely not worth the $20 we... More
