Staff acted annoyed they were working. Poor attitudes. For the money a nice experience would have been a plus. The food was fine but not worth the prices.

First of all the place is hard to find. Should have a sign that says “this Way to Elways.” The steaks at our second visit we’re just ok - both had Portherhouse and they were completely different (bone on one was not a T). The service was very good though. Food was so so but not for $100 + per person and that’s without cocktails and desserts.

Server was unprofessional, GM apology was gracious. Food is outstanding, but the experience was ruined by nonsense at the end. I’m sure they will improve but with so many great choices in the Vail valley, you can’t be off your game. Time for some new draft picks on the staff!

Steak and lobster was excellent - but sides were cold and sent back and cold again. Waitress very good. Restaurant Manager absolutely useless, no idea what doing, totally overwhelmed and getting in the way like a headless chicken and looked scruffy.

I’m pretty picky when it comes to dining(I’m spoiled living in New Orleans.) If you want a steak in Vail, then go to Elway’s. Very tasty, cooked appropriately, great sides. Nice ambiance and vibe. Good sazerac.

El peor servicio del mundo. 30 minutos se tardaron entre cada tiempo. Mi esposa en muletas y nos pusieron en la mesa más lejana con escaleras. Confundieron nuestra reservación y no nos querían dejar entrar. Nos aventaron la cuenta en la mesa por quejarnos del mal servicio. No vuelvo en la vida, el peor restaurante al que he ido.

Terrible calamari-over fried and more extras than calamari
Steaks were very good, but not exceptional...very salty which was ok for us since we like salt, but could see an issue for those who don't
Mushroom side was excellent

Tried to get a later table for 4, but showed unavailable so we took the early time of 5:45pm. There were MANY tables available for dining when we left at 7:30pm, which we found very annoying since we specifically wanted 7pm and were told not possible.

Valentine’s Day celebration with a toast to newly engaged brother and his fiancé...

Elway’s is a favorite of ours down in Cherry Creek, but this Vail location was disappointing..

Servers that we’re very short, rude and unavailable. Have you been to a place where you feel you’re putting them out by asking them to refill water, cocktails, etc... this was the ambiance and attitude.

The whole Lodge hotel valet seem to have the same philosophy around work and customer service.

The food was good, my filet came out as desired. Added the blue cheese butter on top which is always great. Wifeys salmon was a large cut. Cocktails were good and strong.
Definitely missed 2 favorites at this location which is the creamed corn and corn chowder.

My absolute favorite steak house. Maybe it’s the fact I always go with my friends on our annual guys trip, but it’s really tough to beat. Perfect steaks, awesome barrel aged manhattans, solid wine list... just great. I’ll be back next year!

My husband ordered a steak, medium rare and it can out very rare. They took it back and seared it, but it was still very rare, so much that he didn’t finish it. For a steak that costs almost $50, this is unacceptable. It was his birthday dinner, so it was very disappointing.

Had a great meal!! Shrimp cocktail tasted like the shrimp just came out of the sea. Clean, firm and tasty. Steak was cooked perfectly and as described (medium being red, warm center) and with great flavor. Service was also very good. In short, exceeded expectations generally across the board.

Delicious meal always ... however we’ve eaten at Elway’s 3 or 4 times in Vail and have never been placed in a desirable seating area away from the front of restaurant ...always near the bustle of service and food prep ...

Once again the best steakhouse in Vail! The location is great in The Lodge at Vail at the base of the mountain & the restaurant is beautiful, although in need of an update soon. I felt like the quality & quantity of food regressed for a few years, but I was happy to see they're not cutting corners anymore and back to serving appropriate sized steaks & seafood and top notch standards again. Shrimp & lobster on the cold Seafood platter were huge & delicious! Steaks were generous prime cuts again too! Love the NY Strip! Service is always excellent. Flame at The 4Seasons in Vail was better, but they just changed chefs & menu, so Elways is king of steaks in Vail again! Especially since they've stepped up their game once again!
