“A step back in time!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2014

We ate here for lunch while in Keystone doing the tourist thing. I picked the Ruby House after searching Tripadvisor and reading the reviews...we were NOT disappointed!! It is like taking a step back in time and the food was excellent! The food wasn't too pricey and it was absolutely delish. There was a wait time during the lunch hours, but it wasn't more than about 10-15 minutes. I would gladly wait again for the Ruby House! Definitely worth it

“Very nice dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2014

Came here for dinner with a couple friends and was so happy to have found this place. The decor was great, looks like you are stepping back in time. I was obsessed with the wallpaper. Anyways, I had the special for the night which was a bison steak and I was amazed with it. One of the best steaks I've ever had. Service was great!

“Fun Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2014

This was a nice place to take the family for dinner. There was a nice selection of choices on the menu, and even vegetarian options. The ambiance was charming and there was lots to see and take in at this place, which is made to have an old-time feel. Pretty cool. I'd go back.

“Great Western feel, food not great.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2013 via mobile

A very 'authentic' Western feel, however the food is nothing to write home about, to be completely honest I wouldn't eat here again, the starters were ok but the mains were awful. I ordered ribs they were dry and bitter.
The pub next door is nice and very welcoming- a shame the pub didn't serve food!

“Elegant Old West Atmosphere & Good Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2013

We had lunch here after visiting Custer State Park. Ruby House has the atmosphere of an elegant dining room like you would have found in an Old West hotel or saloon. Very comfortable and good service. We had the buffalo stew - it was very good but a little light on the vegetable side. Also had some great french fries. This was a very enjoyable break in our siteseeing day. I would definitely recommend Ruby House and would return.
