    Rustic cabin ambiance, great food selection for foodies or families. Yummy starteres, 4 pastas, 4 pizzas, a great burger, 1/2 a chicken, duck, and more on the regular menu. Special sheet always has another salad, fish, beef and a slow food. Meals come with one or two veggies and a starch. My husband and I each had a small autumn salad - just the right size, and the special NY steak with port reduction, blue cheese, braised red cabbage and potatoes, The entree other places would have been $35-$40. Here it was $25. Everything on the main menu is about $20 and below. Great food at a fair price. Excellent bottle and by the glass wine list. If you want to spend more there is a reserve wine list too. Great homemade ice cream too.

    A dear friend was leaving Sun Valley after living here for close to 20 years. No other place could provide such a perfect ambiance for a bon voyage party! Alive enough during "slack" to be festive as well as warm, special, delicious and as always supported by excellent service. It was the perfect send-off, thank you!

    The food was delicious (esp. the salmon special!) but we've never had a bad meal here. The restaurant was busy for non-peak season evening, and we got the sense our server was a bit overwhelmed, but all in all it was a wonderful meal and good experience.

    This spot is one that we have frequented for several years. Each time it just gets better! The service is always great and considering it is usually full, this is a quality that you generally don't find in other restaurants. Always our favorite, the Lamb Shank is just simply awesome. We swear it can't get any better, but each time we order it, it seems to be just that! Just when you think it can't get any better, order the cobbler and ice cream or one of their other desserts. Even when you have no more room in your tummy, there's always room for dessert. This restaurant has always and will always be one of our favorites.

    We ordered a pizza to start. Crust was thick and hard and not very good. Wife's salmon was mushy and very smokey tasting. Not good either. My duck was good but it was more heavily smoked than I would have liked. Are there in July and had a much better meal.

    The Ketchum Grill is one of our favorite restaurants in Ketchum. The shrimp cakes appetizer is Delicious! Our party of four enjoyed 4 different main courses and everyone liked what they had. We always order the creme broulee for dessert - it has compared very favorably with the same dessert at the Dahlia Lounge in Seattle - but this time it didn't seem as rich, or quite as good. Still good, but not as good as in the past. We ate outside on the covered patio and had good and friendly service.

    Ketchum grill is consistently excellent and inventive in their culinary offerings. Using always the freshest local produce And locally sourced fish, fowl and meats. The locals favorite place. If I had to wish for anything to change, a little more space between tables inside would be nice. And More comfortable outdoor chairs in the outside dining area. ( I suppose if chairs were too comfortable no one would Ever leave!! ) Excellent dining experience otherwise.

    This is a regular dining place for us when we are in Ketchum. A bit noisy due to the close proximity of the tables but always good food. The patio dining is preferred by us. I had the Ketchum meatloaf and my wife had the Ketchum Grill Oven Roasted Chicken. Both were prepared well and had exceptional flavor. Another pleasant dining experience in Ketchum.

    Ketchum Grill is a charming little restaurant in a historic cottage in Ketchum. I love the old Sun Valley and movie poster decor and the cozy cottage setting. The food is consistently good, and the service friendly. Their lamb shank is always delicious, if you want a hearty dish, and they do a nice job with the fish specials, as well as most everything else. They always have a good pinot noir choice, my personal favorite wine, and a reasonable choice of others that I'm sure are good as well. It has a pleasant level of reasonable conversation, not noisy. It's good for a couple's night out, but also ok for well-behaved families. It satisfies my desire for "fine dining," without being overly precious, pretentious, or expensive.

    The cheerful Ketchum Grill serves inventive variations on comfort food in a historic cabin and the covered deck is great after the Symphony, Writers' Conference, Craft Fairs, Gallery Walks, a Library Lectures and other summer events, but a cozy cabin setting on fall and winter nights. Chef Scott Mason and his highly trained kitchen, send out fresh grilled fish, lamb meatballs, mashed potatoes, steaks, oyster stew, fantastically herbed and spiced soups and chowders, all presented efficiently, cheerfully and politely. Parking is a snap. Serves early and late. They also own Enoteca, with a completely different menu, but also excellent. We are regulars at both. No bad news to report, sorry.
