    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.

    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.

    Only been here one time and the general impression I have is that the food is excellent and prepared perfectly but the service is sub-par. It's like this place is trying to be fine dining, when fine dining just isn't in its DNA. It felt like the staff was trying to be fancy with their service but didn't know what to do. Maybe they need to bring in a consultant to teach the staff how to serve fine dining if that's the direction they want to go? The ambiance is comfortable, welcoming, and inviting, and again the food was really great.

    We've been going to the Grill and its predecessor for 40+ years. It is consistently an inviting place to go for dinner. The entrees are very good. Last night it was their comfort food--lemon noodles with shrimp, a couple of weeks ago the fish special. When you're looking for dinner in Ketchum, don't forget the Grill.

    We go to Sun Valley every year to ski, always eat at the Ketchum Grill, our favorite place in town. The visit we just had this weekend was very disappointing. 4 for dinner on a Thursday night, 7pm. Not overly crowded, but by the time we were done it was full. 4 meals ranged in quality from "ok" to almost inedible. Main course salad had wilted lettuce; the pesto in the pesto pasta dish was deemed by all of us as not even close to as good as store bought and simply bad; the sauce on the quail over linguine was clearly polluted with an unflattering seafood flavor; meatloaf was "ok". Service was average, but when 2 of the 4 meals have over half the food left you would think a reasonably astute server might ask if there was a problem.

    We visit Idaho each year from So Cal and always make a visit to the Grill. We are never disappointed. The staff is wonderful and the food amazing. The ingredients are fresh and the dishes unique and tasty. The only challenge is deciding what to order because all of the entrees are tempting. Save room for dessert.

    I just moved to Ketchum and met some great friends from Boise for an early supper and was delighted. Our server, Louise I seem to recall, was stellar. The wait staff very timely, yet not intrusive. The bread was wonderful, the salad crisp and light, and the halibut was prepared perfectly. The dessert was fruity, flavorful and didn't leave you heavy.
