We really liked staying in the Nugget cabin. It was historic but modernized. We liked the location. Everyone was very friendly. We would stay here again.

Surprised to find this under the restaurant reviews as the restaurant has been closed for over a year now. Glad you liked the cabin. Nugget is our most popular cabin. It has a lot of History. Come back again and please tell your friends. Dani More

Because the restaurant was close to our hotel, we visited more than once. Very much enjoyed the friendliness of the staff and being able to sit outside.

This restaurant was located right down the hill from our hotel so it was great to be able to walk there after spending a long day in the car sightseeing.

After a long day of riding we walked to this place from our Hotel. It took a long time just to get our drinks and it seemed like there was only one waitress and maybe 2 cooks. The place was not very busy. I ordered a buffalo burger and our friends ordered other types of food. I asked that it... More

The restaurant was a cute little place, but the food has a lot to be desired. My husband ordered the burger which was completely undercooked. He only took a couple bites out of it, but the waitress still charged us full price for it. The pop was flat and the kids meals were very small but very expensive. I would... More

Why didn't you send the burger back for more fire? Why did you tell the server that everything was OK? It is obvious to me that you do not dine out at full service restaurants often as our kids menu is 5.50 for anything on it and our regular menu is no differently priced than others in the country. We... More

This restaurant is very quaint and looks like a mountain lodge. We were seated right away and the service was good. We both had the ribs and they were great, tender and moist. The ribs were the daily special and were reasonably priced. The other items on the menu seemed high priced.

Every time we come here,this is the first place we eat. We always look forward to those fantastic ribs. The meat falls off the bone,is moist and never dry. The service is top notch and everyone is so friendly. If you come to Keystone, or you're in the area you've got to stop and have their ribs. You won't be... More

We ate here one evening because it was adjacent to our hotel & it was raining. Pretty unimpressive! The "special" was ribs. They were just boiled & had some BBQ sauce dumped over them. Average at best.

My family was craving ribs and we were told this was the place to go. I personally don't care for ribs so I ordered a burger. I tried one of the ribs, however. The meat fell off the rib but it was dry. It was served in a sauce that was tomato based with onion soup and some brown sugar.... More

What did you tell your server when she asked if all was ok? We could have fixed the problem with the "overcooked burger" at that time. If we are not told something is wrong we cannot fix it. The buns are not old and we do not use onion soup in our BBQ sauce. As a matter of fact many... More
