“Great ambience; fair food; great deal!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2013 via mobile

First the good news: The service was excellent (contrary to some other reviews), the ambience is fabulous: log interiors, fine carpets, fine rustic furniture, artifacts, stuffed elk heads, roaring fire in the sitting room, where one moves for deseert, and great views. At certains times during the season (watch for the ads in the local paper) a two-for-one deal is offered - pay $75 for one 5-course meal, and get the second one free - terrific deal. Now the bad news: the food is good, but not spectacular. It is imaginatively presented and creatively selected, but on the evening that we went, I was glad I wasn't paying full price.

“We had great food and great service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2013

We have been going to Keystone for about 6 years and have never made it to the Keystone Ranch. We finally got there on 3/18 and we will be back. A few reviewers were unhappy with the service, but our server was wonderful. We had an eighth grader with us (a boy) and he just could not find anything on the menu that he would eat. They let him order of the childs menu - our son is defintely in 8th grade - but he is 6 foot tall. The server was only condcerned that our entire family enjoyed dinner - and did not concern himself on how or how young our son was. Many fine dining establishments would not have been so easy to deal with on the teenager issue.

My husband had the Elk, I had Artic Char and our son had a great Hamburger. We all had a bowl of the Vension/Elk Stew and it was great. We had dessert in their room with the great fireplace and we could not have enjoyed ourselves any more. I think this is the best dining in Keystone at this point of time.

“Phenomenal!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013 via mobile

Our first visit and definitely not our last! Tonight's meal was probably the best meal EVER and we live to dine out. The service was just as phenomenal. I am not one to order game but the Elk that I had tonight was something I wish was readily available in the east (farm raised and so fresh). We cannot say enough good things about this place! The atmosphere was so wonderful! A "must do when in keystone, co.

“used to love this place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Food is still good, but the service has definitely slipped. Used to be an annual highlight for our ski trips to Colorado. Brought some friends this last time - excited to share this special spot. But we were all kind of disappointed as the service was well below what you would expect. Surly, unfriendly and unhelpful. We spent all night looking for someone to help us... ordered wine, had to ask for it multiple times - but first we needed to find the waiter... will not be coming back anytime soon. Too bad!

“Tradition”

Once again we dined at the Ranch. As always the service and food were wonderful. there are not many restaurants where you can enjoy first class food and service and wear blue jeans.
