A word from Heck's at Devil's Thumb Ranch
HECK’S - a.k.a. “Hex” - a six sided shape with equidistant lengths, relatively concentric with a center point. That’s the definition. Here’s the history.... The hexagonal room that houses Heck's is a replication of a room in one of our country’s national monuments, The Timberline Lodge located at the base of Mt. Hood, Oregon. We visited the Timberline Lodge in 1999, about the same time we contracted to purchase the Ranch. Taken by the sheer expanse and natural beauty of the hex room at Timberline, we felt there were few buildings that built today with that type of grand and inspiring craftsmanship. After that visit, including a hexagonal room as a centerpiece became the focus in planning the Lodge here at Devil’s Thumb Ranch. Continued

  • "The food is always wonderful, you can't beat the view, and they have the best sausage I've ever had. Service was so-so this trip but usually it's very good. The chai tea was also delicious."

  • "First, the waitress assumed that because we ordered a happy hour appetizer that we didn't want dinner. She was absent much of the time. As far as the food goes, the grilled flatbread was a cracker that was flimsy and the mussels were horrible. The mami mahi and basmati rice were dry, the roasted cauliflower was weird; how can you mess that up? The fries were too spicy as was a cocktail I ordered. On a positive note, my husband liked his steak and the chocolate tarts were delish. I also had a good glass of wine. In summary, go for the apre ski happy hour and have a drink then have dinner elsewhere…but take a chocolate torte to go!"

  • "The waitress was a bit slow to come around, and several times we had to ask a busboy to find her, but she was very friendly and helpful. Possibly just spread too thin. Very nice décor and ambience, with beautiful views of the range through large paned windows, with a large pit fire just outside. Really an unmatched idyllic setting for the area in my opinion. Our only real issue was the lack of decent vegetarian options. The choices were a pot pie dish, that was mostly stock and some root vegetables, or a cheesy risotto with similarly limited nutritional content. It is not unusual to find a very limited imagination when it comes to actually nutritious vegetarian meals, but we still sometimes have hope at the higher end resorts."

  • "Everything from the rude hostess, to our horrible server to overcooked food was less than enjoyable. The server's sleeve went in my food two times while she "excused her reach.""

  • "Service was terrible. Has been bad service the last several times we have gone for dinner. They are understaffed so lighter times such as lunch is OK. Very expensive for aweful service. Some tables were waiting 45 minutes just to get their drinks and desperate patrons going to bar to ask for some bread and still waiting crazy amount of time just to get a slice of bread."

  • "We've eaten at Heck's many times, and have always had an enjoyable dining experience. The service from the courteous, friendly wait staff was excellent and the food was outstanding. We also recommend the happy hour from 4-6 pm Sunday thru Thursday with incredible beer and wine specials as well as half-price appetizers."

  • "We have eaten at Heck's before and loved it but this time our waitress was spread to thin. She was very good when she could get to the table. We arrived right at the end of Happy Hour and it showed. It took us 30 minutes to get a bottle of wine and then they brought the wrong one and then told us they didn't have the one we asked for after 30 minutes! We will dine at Heck's again but were disappointed this time."

  • "Especially if staying at Devils Thumb, nowhere to have to drive, it is a winter dream...great food, huge fireplace, even a huge outdoor fire if you want s'mores at the end. Just love this place!"

  • "This is a gorgeous facility with an interesting menu and a kitchen that presents beautiful dishes. But, our entire table was frustrated with the poor service. It was an hour after being seated before we received our food, coffee was never refilled, wait person was nearly completely absent during our meal requiring us to ask other staff for things we needed and, ultimately, even to get our check. After spending $30+ per person on brunch, we expected much more."

  • "There are not many nice places to eat in Grand County, so we go here often. Probably once a month for the past four years. It is a fabulous venue with okay food and spotty service. The staff are generally inexperienced. They are very nice and friendly, but I would gladly put up with a sour waiter instead of an ever-forgetful newbie. The menu is actually pretty good, but the overall experience suffers from bad service."

  • "We were out to see some Fall colors and decided to visit Heck's. It was such a nice experience, great hexagonal room, with a deck that looked out onto meadows and mountains. Our waiter was very attentive and quick to give us information about the room and the rest of the lodge when we asked. Try the wild game chili - good flavors and very hearty. After our ahi tuna salads (by the way, the tuna was prepared perfectly) we took our wine to the patio and relaxed even more. Thanks for a very good experience."

  • "We went for a birthday dinner celebration. It was a fun location, but the food wasn't very good. Artichoke appetizer had no flavor and weird texture, ribs were not tender, and there were not enough healthy vegetarian options. Devils Thumb is worth the visit, but not sure about Hecks. Good wine list."

  • "My wife and I ate here mid week in September. The food we were served (Wagu Meatloaf and Ribs) had apparently been cooked many days before and warmed up for us. The meatloaf was very dense and flavorless, the ribs were dry and meat free. The restaurant was empty (I assume because it was mid week in the off season). If the items on the menu can't be freshly made during the off season then the menu should be limited to salads and burgers. People dining here in winter or summer seasons might have a much better experience than we did but I thought it was bad enough to write my first review ever."

  • "Made a reservation for my daughter's birthday dinner. Having eaten there before I looked forward to sharing the view with her. When we arrived (to a nearly empty restaurant) we were told that we would have to eat at a high top in the bar area. I asked why we couldn't have a dining table with a view (most were empty) I was told that they were all reserved. They did find us a dining table next to the door with no view. No one ever came to sit at ANY of the other tables, so I asked again on our way out why we couldn't have been seated at any of those tables and I was told that they were all reserved but everyone had called and canceled. Obviously that was a lie and we were seated for the convenience of the wait staff. Food was just okay"

  • "We had heard so many good things about Heck's and we truly disappointed in our experience. We checked in with the hostess and told her we had a reservation. This was a birthday dinner and we had requested a table with a view when we made our reservation through Open Table. We were seated at the back of the restaurant behind the fire place. Not a great summer view. When we asked to move we were told the open tables were reserved. Hmmmmm....The food was also disappointing. The ribs and the game chili were good and full of flavor but the meat loaf was under seasoned, the double pork chop was under cooked (I like a little pink but not jelly like in the middle), the grilled peaches were severely over cooked and flavorless."
