“Wine dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

Excellent dinner and superb wine pairings at Ski Tip. Certainly rivaled (if not surpassed) Auberge in Napa and for a lot less in cost. The wine steward really worked to find excellent pairings - especially for one course which was supposed to have a sweet wine. Agreeing to my dislike of same an alternative (excellent) was found with no dithering. Make reservations and try this one.

“Perfect Mountian Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Without a doubt, this is the best fine dining restaurant in Keystone. I have been dining here for years and they never disappoint ... the chef is amazing and Megan is wonderful with her wine pairing suggestions. Menu changes nightly, so worth a couple of visits if you can. Great value for the quality and quantity as well.

“outstanding experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

Old lodge with character.
Prix fixe for a four-course dinner - which changes daily.
Every course was explained knowledgeably by our server, and when asked, her advice was excellent.
Water glasses filled without having to ask.
We had a child with us, and they had substitutions that worked for him.
My husband and I each took a different option in each course, and shared.
There was nothing that was not appreciated for the proper cooking, presentation, and the way that different flavors were incorporated together in each dish.
We've eaten at many of the highly rated restaurants in many cities, and felt that this restaurant outshone them in so many ways.
We'd noticed multiple fireplaces and cozy seating arrangements when we'd arrived. We were taken to one area after dinner and ordered and enjoyed our desserts there.
Outstanding experience.

“Fabulous dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2014

Five of us dined at the Ski Tip Lodge during our trip to Keystone. The food was excellent, as was the service, despite some problems in the kitchen. The atmosphere is intimate and charming. The food is pretty pricey, but worth it.

“Our Favorite by Far”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2014

Ski Tip is a very special place and our favorite by far! So much so that we got married on the back patio with view of the water and mountains behind us. The food is exceptional, and dessert by the fireplace is such a lovely way to wind down the evening. We've taken many friends here and all have enjoyed the experience. You can't go wrong with a visit to Ski Tip!
