I had an excellent steak and everyone in our part of six enjoyed their meal. The staff was friendly and attentive. Especially onvenient to the Sonnenalp (on premises), The Sebastian and The Four Seasons. Right off I-70 if passing through.

I had a bison burger and ceasar salad. Both were excellent! The price was about $14 for the burger with fries and $9 for the salad. Not bad pricing for Vail and the food really was good!

The fish and chips are fantastic, the batter on the fish is made there according to the waitstaff, the fish is a nice mild tender fish. Can't wait to go back and have it again. My husband ordered the hamburger and it was more than enough! French fries are delicious as well. Service is good. It was busy but only... More

After reading the reviews of Bully Ranch, we wanted to visit this restaurant. We were not disappointed. The menu provided a great deal of variety. Our food was great, the atmosphere was, too; service was top-notch.

Enjoyed our first night in Vail with a dinner at Bully Ranch. Loved our table our on the patio; weather was amazing and nicely decorated. We ordered the Truffle Tots and ashamedly ate every one; very delicious. Great place for a casual and comfortable dinner out.

I was staying in the hotel so I made it down to the Bully Ranch a couple of times. The skirt steak salad at lunch was great and it was a busy and friendly place to enjoy a cocktail in the evening. There is a nice patio to enjoy with wonderful views of Vail.

We visited based on someone else's suggestion that they had the best burger in Vail. We detoured based on the looks of our neighboring tables nachos but we're disappointed. Not sure why, they looked good and had all essential elements but it was almost as if everything tastes the same. Cheese not sharp, pico was just tomatoes, chips lacked salt.... More

This was our fav place in Vail - reasonably priced and the menu has everything from salads to pasta to burgers or full on steaks. We ended up going here most nights as didn't need to book (which most places like Mountain Standard and the other well knowns are fully booked weeks in advance). We preferred sitting at the bar...

We went here after a long day, just looking for a relaxing dinner with good food, but nothing too fancy. We ordered burgers...I had beef and my husband had the bison. both were cooked to perfection and the optional toppings allowed us to customize each to our liking. We both chose fries as our sides and they were crispy and... More
