My husband and I ate at the Kickapoo Tavern and we very pleasantly surprised at how good it was. I ordered the fish tacos and it was so good with great spices. It was a pretty healthy choice as it came with cilantro rice, black beans, and a little sauce that had a bit of a kick. My husband ordered... More

Our group of 10 went to this restaurant because it was the ONLY restaurant open at Keystone basin at the beginning of November and it turned out great. The food was pretty good, a little expensive for what you got, but our server did awesome with our large group and was very accommodating. They had plenty of options for all... More

Nice patio at base of gondola that has a good view of the play area. Have a drink during happy hour from 3-6p after a day of skiing and watch the kids play.

Excellent food and service. A bit pricy but what do you expect. Prime rib sandwich with the house made mac and cheese are the way to go.

The food is basic American Food. I had a grilled chicken and brie sandwich, which sounded great on the menu but felt slighted when the sandwich cam as the chicken breast was small and there wasn't much brie on it. It wasn't worth the $13 I paid for it. The atmosphere was nice and the staff was friendly. Full Lunch... More

What can I say other than it's the first bar restaurant you walk by after your finished skiing. There are a lot of people, be prepared to wait 30 minutes to sit down and another 10-15 minutes for the server. The food is good but the frustrations out force my rating to poor.

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.

Thank Rose R
