Diner Reviews
  • "Ketchum Grill has been one of my favorites in the valley for seventeen years. It has managed to keep an astounding consistency. The prices are moderate for the valley and the portions are a perfect size."

  • "This is a great little restaurant run by friendly and knowledgeable people"

  • "The old favorites are always there with several nightly specials to keep it interesting. We've been going there for years and will continue to do so!"

  • "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."

  • "Our group of seven (women) loved this dining experience at the start of our annual trip to the Sun Valley area. We all loved the entrées we chose-- the meatloaf was a huge portion and very tasty. Great ambiance and service. We'll come again!"

  • "Dining at the Ketchum Grill has become a tradition during our semi-annual trips to Sun Valley and Ketcham. The food is exceptional, imaginative and fresh. We have been in both small and large groups and the service is always perfect. Highly recommend it for food and atmosphere."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/26/2014
  • "The Ketchum Grill continues to ensure a great night out for the whole family. Kids (ages 7 and 10) and adults equally enjoy the menu and sophisticated wine and beer list (adults). Kids love the mac 'n cheese (best in the valley) and meatloaf, we love the fish specials and slow food. All year round the specials are seasonal, fresh and local. Thank you to the Ketchum Grill!"
    Dined on 2/5/2014
  • "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."

  • "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."
    Dined on 2/24/2014
  • "The unique menu featuring local fare never fails to please. They're always busy so be sure to make a rezzie in advance."

  • "The food was great! But, I thought it was noisy and the table set close. I was constantly bumped into from the table behind by the people sitting when they would get up and the servers."

  • "In a seasonal town, it's hard to keep a good restaurant going, but The Ketchum Grill always does a great job. They have fantastic food (don't miss the Winter salad or the salmon or the shrimp linguini). The specials are always amazing (I had the cod with sesame crust recently). So, you have to go back again and again to taste all of the wonderful food. The wine list is terrific and the staff is ALWAYS accomodating. Been going here for over 18 years and I will continue! Oh, and they opened Enoteca, which is better for accoustics, and the food is equally good!"
    Dined on 2/11/2014
  • "Been here multiple times and have had good experiences. Like the cozy neighborhood vibe and good food. Frankly, the service this time was not good. From somewhat rude / aggravated hostess to very cold / unfriendly waitress. Might give it one more try, but probably not anytime soon. I like to be around people that enjoy other people, like we do."

  • "Ketchum Grill still has the best meatloaf dinner of any restaurant we have frequented. They have a robust wine list and their gingerbread pudding with salted caramel ice cream was extremely tasty. A must place to go when visiting Ketchum."

  • "Wonderful restaurant - food was beyond exceptional. Would highly recommend reservations. Second time at this restaurant and I would go back again."
    Dined on 1/2/2014
  • "Overall, enjoyed dinner at one of Ketchum's landmarks. Shrimp cakes were good, but arrived after salads. Speaking of salads, wrong one arrived, the server explaining that she had written down the order wrong. Service in general a bit distracted. At one point, our server appeared to announce that she was leaving for the evening and indicating that she just wanted to say goodbye."

  • "We went for New Year's Eve. We had the kids so we wanted a more layer back atmosphere nothing to fancy z They had a fixed price menu just like most all restaurants do on New Year's Eve! The price was reasonable. The food was ok. No kids menu with just simple food so needless to say one of my boys didn't eat. I don't think I would go out of my way to go back. Maybe the full menu is better. They really had no decorations up just a couple of things around the doors that said happy new year."

  • "This restaurant as always been one of our favorites in the valley. Their spicy oysters are spectacular! It is such a comfortable, cosy space without pretense. Over the years the staff has changed but they always maintain the highest quality. The portions are not too big and the prices are reasonable."

  • "KK stands the test of time for fine dining in Ketchum/Sun Valley. The atmosphere is cozy and mountain resort casual. The couple who owns KK are hands on attentive to the details of running a solid, successful, and inviting restaurant. The husband is the Chef who runs the kitchen and his wife is a trained pastry Chef who prepares wonderful desserts. The servers are very friendly and they have a really nice wine list to accompany the menu. We had the wild King Salmon entree, the rustic meatloaf, and a grilled chicken salad......all three were great. The place is cozy and noise level can make it a bit tough to hear for bigger tables/parties. A good place for families as well. Highly recommend it."
