Top notch steakhouse
Best steaks we ever had, the T-in-bone steaks had a very delicious taste, and were perfectly prepared, rare as we like it; most times when we order rare we get medium-rare, not here, and not to forget the flavor !
Top notch and benchmark for other steak houses !

Very solid restaurant located
Very solid restaurant located in the LODGE at Vail. Excellent NY Strip (8 ounce) - everything is a la carte, so can get expensive. Serve staff was friendly and pretty attentive.

A good evening - tons of kids
A good evening - tons of kids there for ski season. Had to get moved to different table.

We were the only guests for
We were the only guests for our 6:30 PM reservation, but that's to be expected during the off season. Server was attentive, but not pushy and that helped. Prix fixe menu was a nice surprise. The only detractions would be noticing that the atrium windows were sloppily caulked shut and then not painted. That coupled with the poorly printed paper signs on the exterior was not what you'd expect from such a caliber concept. Food and service though were quite good.

New York Strip
I had the New York Strip and it was delicious! One of the best steaks I've ever had!

Very good food (Steak!) cooked
Very good food (Steak!) cooked to perfection. Side dishes are generous, and well prepared. Price-fix menu was a reasoably priced option.

Food is always great
While our service was a little on the lacking side, the food did not disappoint. Elway's is always consistent in that arena and everyone in our party had a great food experience.

Nice night out.
We enjoyed a nice, quiet dinner here during shoulder season. The prefix menu for off season was not only affordable but really good quality. Staff was very attentive and gave helpful suggestions.

We had a fabulous experience at Elways! As usual the food was FANTASTIC and we had great service. Super friendly staff even turned the heat lamps on for us upon request. Making dining outside over the Memorial Day weekend just "perfect"!
Thank you for a WONDERFUL dinner!

End of off season
Elway's was good but I have to admit I was a little disappointed. It was the end of off sealson so they had a limited menu. We have eaten at the one in Denver and it was one of the best meals I have had, but here I would say it was average at best. At $200 I expect more. I am sure it's better during the busy season, but I think next time we are in Vail we will try somewhere else.

This one's for John!
Elway's is a great place for that special occasion dinner. The fixed price dinners were a real winner, though I'd like to see at least two main course selections for each level. Otherwise, this is a great dinner place in Vail.

We love the steak at Elways and were excited to see that there is now allocation open in Vail. The outdoor seating is beautiful and we received great service and the steak was exactly as we had remembered. Great service, great ambiance, delicious food, and a pre fix menu option. Nothing to complain about. Would recommend this any day.

A Serious Restaurant
We were skeptical of going to another athlete's steakhouse, but after two equally great visits to Elway's in Vail, we were convinced: the kitchen staff is excellent and the wait staff takes good care of guests - this is a serious restaurant in an excellent location, surrounded by beautiful gardens. A big plus: the tables are perfectly spaced so you aren't on top of eah other like at so many other trendy places. And a great bar area is very separate from the dining area so the noise of the bar doesn't intrude on diners who dont want to be bumpedinyo by bar guests. We will be back again.

Elways' Food could be improved
have eaten at Elways 6 times and have a few suggestions. Steaks are very good and cooked the way you want them...very good about additional tweaks. Sides are very disappointing in the potato area and spinach...servings are small, overpriced and barely enough for one let alone sharing. French fries are terrible. I always have a steak and wedge salad...about all I can recommend honestly. I will continue to eat there although only when I want steak and salad. A small note...the water milk bottles are really cheesey looking...get something with a bit of class. GMB

Great dinner and food. Atmosphere and presentation was fine Didn't see main wait staff after intro. Manager was great

Coming from Denver, we had high expectations of Elway's in Vail since we go to Cherry Creek often. The restaurant definitely lived up to our expectations as the service and food were outstanding. We sat outside which was so nice and romantic because we found the inside of the restaurant to look a little outdated and stuffy. Overall, if you're looking for great service and food this is the place!
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was great but you pay for the great food. A bit expensive but worth it if you don't mind paying $100 plus for a table of 2. Steaks and ribs were amazing. We will be back next time we are in town.

This was my wife's birthday and it was fabulous. They treated us great and the food was spectacular.

We had the usual excellent
We had the usual excellent filet. Elway's never disappoints. Sure, it's a bit overpriced for what it is ($39 for an 8 oz. filet) but it was Vail after all and things are just more expensive there in general. 2 filets, a side salad, a wedge salad, one glass of wine and one beer $172 including tip.

Tasty for all of Us
The occasion was for my birthday with a visit from a sister from out of state. We enjoyed our meal in the atrium, surprised that a family with three kids were seated there, too. The Elways in Denver is much more dressier and geared for an adult meal. I love kids but for special occassions, it's nice to hold conversations without hearing sounds from multiple cell phones.

I love it
The best food in town! Very nice service for kids!

great meal but pricey
we were skeptical on coming after reading a bunch of bad reviews.
we had a lovely dinner. it was pricey but delicious.
my husband and i split an appetizer portion asian salad and it was very large and delicious. we were going to order the bigger one and our server suggested we order the smaller one.
for dinner i had the regular salmon which one not big at all, and i actually thought for a steakhouse it was a small portion. my husband had $55 lamb chops which were huge , and very very good. my friend had as an appetizer the chowder which i think he enjoyed and the short ribs with mashed potatoes. for sides i ordered the grilled cauliflower which in my opinion was horrible soupy thing for $9 and a $9 potato SMALL. we had wine!!

Fantastic Food/Service Vail Elways
We had excellent service at Elways on Saturday night...from the Host, to the waiter (Ross), and the busboys. They answered all menu questions and engaged in banter with our entire party..from the time we checked in to the moment we left....truly making our
visit one to remember...we will be back again during ski season.
The bone in Ribeye was cooked to perfection, and the prix fixe menu for those wanting appetizers, entree, sides, and dessert had lots of selections...

A Great Experience
My husband and I are in Vail for 6 weeks. We enjoyed Elway's
Very Much! The food, wine and Service were all
fantastic . Bryce our Waiter did a terrific job . We brought another
couple they loved it.
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always a nice experience.
We have eaten here three times while visiting Vail. Once in the Spring of 2013 and then again just this month. The food is always good, and it is even better since we go in shoulder season. They have great affordable pre-fix menus during those times. The staff is great, friendly and helpful. Overall, we would definitely return again.

The food here was exceptional
The food here was exceptional and so was the service. Due to the prices of the food it makes for a GREAT location to go to for special functions but if you are middle class like I am then it's not a location that you could afford to go to on a "Date Night Out". Elliot our server was great and I wish I could go into any food place and get the service this waiter gave us.

great fall specials
Great appetizer and drink specials at the bar and for dinner. Steaks were outstanding. Wine list is pricey

Not for lo-salt diets
This was our second annual visit to Elway's Vail for our anniversary celebration. Service was excellent and the setting is terrific but we found the food to be way too salty. Admittedly, we do not use a lot of salt on our food, but this was over the top. My steak was beautiful, prime, and cooked perfectly but so salty I could not eat it. it was the same with the beet salad and our waiter kindly removed it from the bill. We will come back as this was probably an off-season experience.

Evening with Wife
The service was great and have to recommend the artichoke appetizer it was top notch, it was a great evening from beginning. We had reservations and were seated in a timely manner and were greeted throughout the place making you feel welcome. The menu was not overwhelming and the waiters know the menu and when asked about the items on the menu they are educated and informed about how the items are prepared. We will definitely return.

While spending the Thanksgiving holiday in the Colorado mountains, we chose Elways Vail for dinner. Not only did the restaurant offer a delicious special thanksgiving feast, but also Elways extensive regular menu and wine list. Great ambiance and service, a casually elegant stating.
11/27/2013 4:00:00 PM
We selected the Thanksgiving meal. It was outstanding; the turkey was moist, dressing was perfect, potatoes and
gravy were perfect and it came to the table piping hot. Wonderful. The martinis, however, seemed to be watered down, not as tasty as Elways in Denver.
