This is definitely more of a three-star restaurant, but a few stand-out dishes bumped it up to a four, specifically the buffalo ribs and the game sausage. The sausage was juicy and dripping with flavor, the ribs were enormous, tender, and totally delicious. These two plates alone would be worth a return visit. Everything else we ate was pretty much average to below average (salads were ok, crab cakes were fine, elk tenderloin was pretty tasty, vegetable sides limp and lukewarm.) The atmosphere is a little cheesy, what with the mounted animal heads, the knick-knacks, and the license plates, but it's fun enough for a mountain vacation meal--pretty typical steakhouse ambiance, really. Not such an exciting beer selection, especially given the quality of the local CO brews. Dinner wasn't cheap, but the portions were generous.

We have eaten at the Gas House for the past ten years during our mens ski trip. The last two years have been extremely disappointing - last year the elk was tough as nails and this year the prime rib was almost inedible. The sides are bland and overdone. Very disappointing to have to mark this quaint place off our list of eateries during our trip.

We have had dinner here on many occasions, when friends come to ski and stay in the Vail Valley, they like to visit the Gashouse once during the week for dinner. We have had good meals, especially the game dishes, but we have also had rubbery steaks in the past. Word has it that there is a new Executive Chef and he is improving the kitchen. On our recent visit several weeks ago everyone enjoyed their dinner, everything from quail, to trout and beef. The service was attentive, and efficient, the food was well prepared but for the prices should have been better. The restaurant is very interesting though, unless you don't like the critters staring at you while you eat, although this is part of the restaurants western ambiance. Hint- take a walk around the whole restaurant, there are enough stuffed animals hanging on the walls to make the Museum of Natural History in NYC blush!

The food, the ambience and the service-just not good.
We dined here hoping for a local feel. Instead the place is decorated with tacky game, at least for my Texan taste. The crab salad was missing crab. The venison, bison, elk and quail were unappealing and small portioned for $50 a plate. And forget getting any service or refill of beverages.
I recommend passing on dining here.

We have eaten here a few times with the whole family. We are always treated kindly by the staff and the food has always been good. We always go with the wild game. The spicy chili is my favorite, not the the weak of heart. We get a mixed wild game sausage platter for the children and they eat it all. My youngest goes for the ribs all the time and cleans his plate (rare). My husband usually eats some bison burger or jackalope sausage. Whatever the wild game we have been well pleased each time that is why we keep coming back. The restaurant is nothing over the top. It's rustic and plain but the food and service is what keeps us coming back.
