John is always a super star. The food is good. I love the deck. The prices are completely out of control. Come on guys...you are not in NYC or Paris.

Situated at the base of the Mountain at Lion's Head, the Chop House offered a scenic view of the mountain and great food.

Staff good but the food was gross. Over priced and poor food. That's all I have to say. I could get something better at McDonald's. If that gives you an idea if the quality.

Wow! Great outdoor table with awesome views, nice weather . Service was outstanding, quick and very attentive. Food was pretty bad. Everything was over cooked and destroyed with garlic. I like garlic, but over doing it on literally every dish is bad form. Steak over cooked and too much garlic, mashed potatoes- garlic, tomato salad- garlic?? Lobster mac and cheese... More

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

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!

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!
