I had a great salad along with a cup of chili. I'm from the south and the chili was very spicy and delicious - a different recipe from what I'm used to in the south. My husband ordered onion rings and they were great! We shared truffle fries and they were amazing!They close mid-September to mid-October so watch for timing.

KIckapoo is in River Run Village at the base of Keystone Mountai steps from the gondola.. A perfect place for Apres Ski. Lots of great beer, fun atmosphere, rustic decor, and typical pub fare. Location can't be beat. Worth a visit!

$134 is too much for a burger, a salad, wings, a kids meal and 4 drinks... especially on off season. Food was a bit greasy and salmon in salad was TINY!! Wings were good... server messed up ticket and not much was done. Would not go back.

We decided to stop for a beer and snack after a morning of bike riding. We ordered the nachos and the waiter advised us that half order would be plenty. He was right on target and they were excellent. Pilsner hit the spot.

Informal, dog friendly brew pub. Great for sports watching or gathering with large group of friends. Service is good, try the meatloaf!

We stopped at Kickapoo after spending the day touring around the Keystone area. We were going to stop for cocktails and then decided to order the nachos. They were delicious and the portion was huge. There were five of us and we couldn't finish them. We sat outside and when a dark cloud approached we thought we would be chased... More

Maybe we hit it when they were short staffed or short sighted but it took more than an hour for all of our dishes. Good queso & chips, excellent shrimp tostado with some heat. Good wings, but not nearly as good as Zuma's. Decent steak & hit & miss fries. Clearly some were fresh, others not. Our server was nice,... More

One of the first restaurants you see after walking over the bridge from the ski area. Great food in a fun and lively atmosphere! I remember having great chili at Kickapoo Tavern, which is always awesome on a cold day after skiing!

Not only did we get great food and great service, but our food came out much faster than expected. The restaurant is conveniently located at the base of the mountain and only a 2 minute walk from the condo we were staying in (The Springs).
