I got a cheese burger and sweet potato fries. It was delicious and very reasonably priced. I will definitely go there again!

Recent Summer family vacation and found this restaurant by walking in. Great patio dining looking up the slope and Eagle Bahn ski lift. Wonderful spot in evening along the promenade and Al Gore Creek. Had the raw oysters (Pacific) and they were excellent. Other dishes were just as good. Lobster Mac & Cheese is a must! Tony was out server... More

Our daughter got married on top of Vail Mountain on June 18, 2016. We could not have chosen a better place to hold her wedding reception than at the Vail Chophouse conveniently located at the base of the gondola! Manager-Marvin Melson and Event Planner-Cameron Schimmel were so incredibly fabulous to work with! They handled EVERYTHING for us and treated us... More

Went for dinner with my family. Prices were crazy, but heck, it's Vail and I've gotten used to it. The prices for the steaks were $45-55. Would've been fine with it but I thought my NY strip was pretty thin and just ok. My family felt the same way with their dinners. I consider myself a bit of a steakhouse... More

Had a wonderful dinner at the Vail Chophouse. Ordered the 20 Oz. bone in ribeye and it did not disappoint. Oysters on the half shell also were delicious. Also impressive was the Magician who performed tableside and kept the kids entertained while we waited for our food. Good food and good times!

At lunch burgers, fish tacos and salads all hit the spot. Good service and great view of the mountain and chair lifts.

My family was in town and wanted a great steak. We came to the Vail Chophouse to sit on their patio with an amazing view. They had live entertainment on the patio during our first course, which ended just in time to enjoy our dinner. We enjoyed our dinner with the sun setting behind the mountains.

After an amazing day on the mountain for Pink Vail, Vail Chophouse being one of the Pink Vail sponsors, was a great place to enjoy a Pink Champagne toast on the deck and listen to the great songs played by long time favorite, "Phil Long". The entire staff is excellent. Upon entering, Kevin, the doorman, was incredibly customer service oriented... More

It was so nice to sit outside and watch the skiers coming down the mountain. Great atmosphere to sit and hang out on their patio.
