“A Tasty Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We ate at the Powder House a couple of times during our recent stay in Keystone. The food, especially the wild game and bison, were really tasty. The portions were on the money and we left full each time. The food is very well prepared and the restaurant is a nice place to relax at the end of the day.

Our group tried the bison meatloaf, the elk medallions, the bison filet, the ostrich and the wild game sampler as an appetizer. We liked all of them. I am told by those in our group who tried dessert that it was wonderful.

They were fairly busy both nights we ate there, and the service was somewhat slow. If you are in a hurry this might not be a good choice. If you have the time though, this is not a problem. It could be that the crowd was larger than they expected since we were after the Labor Day holiday when the number of travelers usually slacks off. If the service had been better we would have given it an excellent rating.

Bottom line, the food was excellent, just don't go if you are in a hurry.

“A great way to end your day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2012

For the life of me I can't figure out why AAA only gives the Powder House 2 stars. Our meals there were all very good. The bison meatloaf was very well flavored and delicious as was the bison burger and bison short ribs. We talked with other folks there that evening and everyone was quite pleased. The restaurant itself is charming and the service quite good and the prices were quite reasonable for the food they provide.

“Great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012

Nice restaurant. We enjoyed a great salad with hot roast chicken on top - best I've had. I would recommend any of the salads.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere was quiet, service was average. The primerib was tough, with microwaved garlic cheese bread. I would not rate this resturant in the top 5.
