Description: For some The Pioneer Saloon is the first restaurant to head to when coming into town and the last place to go before leaving. For others, it's where they met their significant other, perhaps over a bar marg. The Pioneer Saloon, renowned for perfectly aged, tender and flavorful beef, is typical of an earlier Idaho where ore wagons rattled down Main Street and business was done with a handshake and a drink. Natural woods, mounted game, and period firearms help recreate an authentic saloon atmosphere. Duffy and Sheila Witmer have been the sole owners of the Pioneer Saloon since 1986. Today, with their children, Alyson, Chloe and Dillon, they strive to honor a historical classic while bringing new ideas to Ketchum's restaurant scene.

Loved the group dinner we had here in their private downstairs room. We had a company dinner for 14 and although the upstairs was busy with lots of people eating and drinking, being downstairs felt like we had the place to ourselves. Service was excellent, quick, and accurate. Food was outstanding from start to finish. I wish I had saved room for desert. I had the sirloin, cooked perfectly to medium. The filet Mignon looked very good as well.

We've been going to the Pio for the past 25 years, and the food has been amazing every time. Whether you get a steak, ribs or scallops, you will not be disappointed. Amazing food, great staff, and an awesome atmosphere.

I decided to try this restaurant on the advice of the clerk at my hotel and after reading the write up in the hotel informational book. I was not disappointed! It was a busy Saturday night but I was seated right away at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and the food was excellent. I'd definately return again.

Love the Pio! Have been eating there for 30 years. It is always dependable good food. Prime Rib is always a good choice and if you are lucky enough to get there early enough for the ribs{off the prime) you should probably do it....hard to eat beef ribs anywhere else after.

Great atmosphere!! Amazing baked potato and steak! If you have a long wait in the bar, I highly recommend the house margarita.
