We have been dining at the Keystone Ranch for decades. Over the years, the menu has undergone significant changes to meet the needs of its clientele. Instead of having only 1 fixed price, there are now several options.The portions were significantly larger in years past, but so was the price point. The best deal by far is the 2 for 1 that occurs once or twice a year.
You can't beat the ambiance of this rustic log cabin with a blazing fireplace. The added feature of having a relaxing dessert in a separate sitting room adds to the unique experience. The grand marnier soufflé is a signature dessert that should be tried at least once. If you still have room, a round of chocolate follows your dessert. From the sitting area, one can gaze at the golf course with the mountains in the background. It is a spectacular view.
The food is what makes our family repeat diners. Every course is prepared with fresh ingredients. Some dishes are more daring than others. Simple things like their homemade breads including the banana bread remain a standout. While the menu is limited, it does provide a cross section of items that will appeal to vegetarians, carnivores, and fish lovers. If you're into wild game, it is one of their specialties. We have shared many happy moments at the Keystone Ranch. I cannot recall any disappointing meals. One of our vegetarian guests wished that there were more vegetarian options.
In addition to the wonderful food, we have experienced a knowledgeable and attentive wait staff. All have been able to answer our questions or have gone to seek the answer from the chef. Their recommendations have usually been helpful if we are uncertain about a particular dish. Our food was always served hot and our water glasses never dropped lower than half filled.
