Great ambience and friendly service. Unique menu and very tasty food. The truffle tots are great and a must have. We had a leisurely late day meal and were very relaxed.

My wife, daughter and I visited recently and has a terrific experience. Service, bar, restaurant, and hospitality were all excellent. Manager Mike Wisler extended warm hospitality as did bartender and server. Food was also terrific...burgers are among the best in area. Will definitely return. Among Vail's best hidden gems.

Bully Ranch has a very fun and festive atmosphere. You feel like you our at a saloon in the old west. The food is very good, especially their buffalo burger. I suggest splitting something to keep the price down, the portions are big enough for 2 grown men. Bully Ranch is part of the Sonnenalp Hotel which is a very... More

The patio is lovely and the menu looked interesting - overall the food was pretty unimpressive and the service was slow. We ordered our drinks to come out with our food - the drinks didn't make it out until after we were half way done + when it was time to get our bill, it took forever for our server... More

We had read the good reviews of this restaurant and were specifically looking for it (it's a little off the main street) - glad we found it! It has a lovely outdoor area, great service, and excellent food. Try the tomato cheddar soup (my husband is still raving about it), the bacon-wrapped shrimp, and even the two types of bread... More

Great hamburgers and truffle tots! A good place to bring teens for dinner. Plenty of menu options. Cool rustic ambience! Would eat here again in a heart beat!

Nice place for a family with young kids. Almost immediately after we sat down the waiter brought water with lids & straws to our kids. Waiter was prompt & friendly. Manager was visible & actively involved. The manager gave my so an airplane to play with while we were there. We enjoyed the atmosphere & the hamburgers were quite tasty!

If it was not for the fact that we took a long stroll around Vail we might not have found this place. We ended being very happy we did! The combination of a great meal along with great service while sitting outside made our day. Our server (sorry, should have written his name down) took very good care of us,... More

One my favorite lunch restaurants in Vail. Great German beer and buffalo burgers, but much much more. Beet salad to die for and the corn chowder are spectacular. The good service and outdoor seating make for a repeatable experience.
