We had lunch here on a beautiful day and ate outside- right in the middle of the village, so great people watching. The service was fine, but the food was very average, at best.

Great outdoor seating patio, but I was disappointed with my meal. The waiter recommended their steaks, but I was dissappointed. It was not tender. He said that it was because of the kind of steak it was but they initially said all steaks were all...More

We read the negative reviews before going to the Ore House during our last night in Vail, but decided to keep our reservations and make our own opinion.....mistake. The atmosphere is nice, both inside and out, but the service and food was poor, at best....More

The food was bland, the server was visibly frustrated with the kitchen, the manager was completely rude, and all the meals overpriced. Don't get lured in by the nice looking patio - it is a waste of money and time.

Four of us had trouble finding a table outside on a busy Sunday market day in Vail. The Ore House happened to have an open spot, and we're glad we stopped in. The patio isn't large or swanky, but it has great people watching right...More

The sevice was poor. Some of the food was decent, but the scallops were practically raw. Portion sizes were average. There are so many better Dining experiences in Vail. I encourage you to try something else.
