Diner Reviews
  • "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."

  • "We've been going to the KG for years, and have never been disappointed. Last night, the meat loaf was even a little better than ever before. Very good job on the pizza as well. No haute cuisine, just really good food...."

  • "Wonderful service, ambiance and great food! This is an institution in Ketchum / Sun Valley. The Lemon Noodles, Idaho Trout and Fettuccine with Pesto are my favorite dishes. The outdoor patio is covered and it's a perfect little nook for you and your guests. Summertime is so relaxing."

  • "Local restaurant that has been a favorite for years. Charming old structure with wonderful ambience. Food is always delicious, thoughtfully prepared and hot (or cold, if necessary.) Great menu selections. Staff has always been friendly, thoughtful and intent on pleasing without being overbearing. Going to the Ketchum Grill is always familiar and like "going home"."

  • "Food was very good as it always has been in the past. Service was adequate, but not as responsive as I would have liked. Biggest downer was the noise level inside; had to shout across the table in order to talk. Sit on the patio if want to have a conversation."

  • "After placing Open Table reservation, The Ketchum Grill wasn't expecting us....a 3 top, seated at a table for 2? The menu less than exciting, but the specials were pretty good...the desserts excellent. Tables inside the Grill on top of each other...cozy, for some, cramped for me. Noise level very high. Don't book a reservation later in the evening.....specials substitute lessor cuts of beef, but retain original price. Staff also makes no bones about the fact they want to cut and run. "

  • "I brought my wife here Saturday night to celebrate Mother's Day - we like to avoid the "rush" on Sunday. It was a great meal - my wife says it's the best Halibut she's ever had ! We are part time residents of Ketchum, and the Ketchum Grill is one of our favorites. There are several outstanding restaurants here, and this is one of them. "

  • "the grill has landmark status in ketchum. It's in a historical house with a cozy setting. There's a very small bar if you're eating alone, and if you have to wait for your table there is a waiting area with a fireplace. The menu stays the same with slight variations. They have a slow-cooked meal each day, and during shoulder seasons they offer wonderful specials. The salmon is delicious. It's a reliable place to go for good food, good service and pleasant ambience. "

  • "The food was good but the service was unfriendly. We have 2 kids and it appeared that might have been the problem for the server....no kids menu was offered and she was rarely checking on us. Found out about the kids menu after we ordered. No big deal, but in the end, some simple Idaho friendliness would have been nice and would have made for a more pleasant dinning experience."

  • "A bit disappointed this time. The hamburgers was way over cooked and the waitress agreed and then said the cooks argued over the way it was done. I did not need to hear that. Service was okay. Until the waitress realized we were locals, she was a bit indifferent. Generally speaking, Ketchum Grill is one of our favorite place to go out for 'date night'. I might consider other dining establishments in the future."

  • "Made reservations and arrived on time; nonetheless hostess put us at a table in the back-room near the kitchen door and fire exit. Asked to be reseated and after a brief delay, a better table was located in the main room. I can understand giving walk-ins sub-par tables, but when I reserve well in advance I expect a good table. Otherwise, food was good, servce was good."

  • "We always enjoy Ketchum Grill. I love old Sun Valley atmosphere in a historic cottage, and the food is always delicious. It's cozy in winter, and in summer, dining on the porch is great. Servers are friendly, wines are good. There is a nice little bar. You can't go wrong picking this place for your dinner out."

  • "My husband and I ate at the Ketchum Grill on a Monday night. It was buys. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. The food was good and reasonably priced. The service was also good. The restaurant has a "crowded feel" at least in the area we sat with tables very close together. It was also noisy! Great place to go for a good meal - probably not so great a place if you are looking for a quiet, romantic dinner."

  • "We come to Sun Valley to ski for 9 years, thanks to a friend, and our first meal is always at Ketchum Grill. No matter what is ordered, it is always of the highest value. We especially love the slow food offering and the knowledge that much of it is sourced locally and therefore more healthful for us, the providers and the earth."
