Good Food, and an Eclectic Decor.

We ate here as it was the only spot open in Keystone and it was next door to our hotel. The burgers and fries were very good, in fact a tad better than average. Our waitress was a bit of a card and kept us entertained while delivering good service. We would eat here again if in the area.

Went here for dinner and drinks, the bar tender asked us to go upstairs to the restaurant section to eat yet we saw other people eating at the bar. We went upstairs the waitress told us it was okay to order food and she would bring it down to the bar for us to eat. Well when we went back... More

Food served cold after waiting 1/2 hour when not busy, table next to us, food looked cold- dried on sauce on the ribs and sawing at the steak. Server did not offer to do anything for us. No drink refills. $12 burger and "homemade fries" may have been better if they were at least warm.... the lady walking around, perhaps... More

At the time we were there, this was the only thing open. I would prefer not to get bar food for my kids, but the kids meal hot dogs were decent and well priced. The patrons at the bar were lamenting the end of the winter, because all those annoying tourists were going to come around and ruin their summer.... More

Was the only thing open in keystone march 31 2015. They were out of almost all the beers and food was terrible. Service was shockingly bad. Hall style seating. Table next to us was also complaining about food they ordered and being charged for food they didn't order! We had a sleeping baby and got seating next the Duke box.... More

No way of knowing Keystone was a ghost town in mid-March. BaRLees was the only restaurant open. The decor was non-existent in the upstairs dining room. The meat smoker outside smelled really good but when husband ordered smoked chicken at 6:00 p.m., it was still being smoked. He asked for pulled pork and told it would be 3 hours before... More

Granted I went in January, but the kitchen was closed at 7:40 at night. I paid nine bucks for a microwaved pizza that was terrible. Staff were kinda nice bit were not at all interested in doing anything extra.

Keystone is a ghost town in February. So we headed over to Barlees, the only open place in town. Nice comfy atmosphere, it was log cabin meets sports bar. "Elley" instructed us to sit anywhere. Drinks were offered and brought in a jiffy. My diet is Paleo, and Elley had no problem substituting my potato with sautéed veggies. I ordered... More

One of the few places open in the evening in the winter in Keystone. Very overworked bartender trying to take dinner orders and keep everyone's drinks straight. Like other reviewers have stated, out of most sides, my chicken was burnt/reheated, and so tough I could barely cut through the outside skin to get to the dry meat inside. "Homemade" fries... More
