“Favorite place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We are summer residents and The Gamekeeper's Tavern is our favorite place to eat! We love everything on the menu and have never had even a mediocre meal there! The staff is great, too! Can't wait to get back up there!

Thank you for taking the time to leave us a note. We can't wait to see you again this season and have an exciting new menu planned for summer. We will also be expanding the selection in the delicatessen. We can't wait to see you on the mountain!

Thanks

“Cozy Bar Dining!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

We went to Gamekeeper's Tavern twice in December... both times ate in the super-cozy bar..perfect place to dine in winter with the fireplace(and flat screens for those who were watching the games). Gourmet burgers, wild boar quesadillas, elk chop with bourbon maple sweet mash....amazing....and add to that a great wine list. Any place that offers Chateau Montelena and Stag's Leap by the glass is ok with me. Lovely dining experince.

“Not for Me”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2013

Have gotten raves from friends but when we went the atmosphere disappointed and the food was just OK. Wine prices were ridiculous for this region and type of restaurant.

“Don't let reviews discourage you!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

We about missed out on a wonderful dining experience at the Gamekeeper's Tavern. Before choosing this restaurant, we did a bit of researching reviews...Good thing we did not take them to heart.
We had a wonderful dining experience. The salads were some of the best we have ever had. Enjoyed a very generous Tuna Tataki appetizer. Our main courses were timely and at the correct temperature. Two orders of Elk Chops, Lamb and the Mixed Grill Trio. The wait staff was observant, and friendly. We will definitely return to the Gamekeeper's Tavern.
