    The Haymaker team did an outstanding job with their Mother’s Day brunch from the service to the food. Especially loved the brisket eggs bennie.

    Very deceiving and sneaky restaurant! During our Steamboat vacation we saw Haymaker listed as a nearby restaurant. I Googled them which then took me to their website. There wasn’t a lot of information on it but they were open and had availability on our preferred date so I booked it. The reservation required a credit card and agreement that I would be charged $25 per person if I canceled within 48 hours which I agreed to. Only to find out within that 48 hours that they booked me for a sleigh ride and 4 course dinner at $130 per person! Nothing about that in the website nor would I have been interested in that so I canceled the reservation. Needless to say, my card was charged $25 per person and they were unwilling to negotiate due to the confusion. I would avoid Haymaker.

    Food and cocktails were great, service was excellent, sleigh ride was a cute activity for families. Our waiter (I believe her name was Sharon) was just fantastic. Definitely pricey, but considering how much fun we had, it was well worth it.

    I was extremely excited to go to Haymaker. I e been on a Sleigh dinner before and was really looking forward to it The venue was extremely pricy. But I still didn’t care because they were giving a 4 course meal. Well. It was t what I consider a 4 course meal. The table app. Was not great. It was more pickled foods. The salad was not a salad. It was cut up apples w salad garnish. They offered 4 options in the entree. I got pork shoulder with gnocchi’s. Basically it was cut up pork in a bowl with 3 tiny gnocchi. My nephew had the NY steak. Also cut up on the plate. I’m sorry but I live in NY. I’m used to NY pricing. But I was very disappointed The people were lovely. But the price per head for what we received was terrible. Especially when drinks were separate. $24 a drink 😞. I will not be going back. .

    The sleigh ride was just a magical end to our ski vacation. I must say the staff was exceptional from the sleigh driver to all the people running the sleigh. Our waiter Micheal was outstanding which made for a very enjoyable meal. Loved everything.

    Definitely more of a tourist trap. Sleigh ride was about 10 minutes. We were rushed on and didn’t get good pictures with the horses at all. Disappointing. The food was subpar. Service was decent. For over $400 for 2 people, this was a waste. Do not recommend.

    The staff at Haymaker made this a fun experience for the whole family. Our group of 4 to 70 year olds had a great time enjoying a beautiful sunset sleigh ride and delicious dinner. Truly one of the high points of our trip. Thank you for making a great memory for us all.

    Booked the New Years Eve sleigh ride and dinner. Arrived and nothing was as listed. No appetizers and drinks prior to the sleigh ride. Then no sleigh ride. We left before dinner so not sure about the food.

    We booked this well in advance as we heard the sleigh ride was a great experjnce. The building was beautiful however it was absolutely freezing in the dining room. So much we skipped the sleigh rider because we were all frozen. Food was good but not a lot of options on a fixed menu. If your kids are 13 and over they have to eat off the adult fixed menu. Seems like a waste of money

    Food was creative and delicious! Waiter was professional and knowledgeable, as well. However, it was freezing inside the entire time, which put a damper on dinner. Otherwise, would highly recommend and eat here again.

    The server was very good and we appreciated all that he did. The front door was sticking and numerous people had the same issue struggling to enter. We had to call to get in and were told pull harder, it’s just sticking. The ambient indoor temperature was cold, the host was dressed in jeans and tennis shoes, the rest of the staff was in a uniform. There was not a single Christmas decoration in the entire room. The food was excellent!! The food was a homerun, the rest of the experience has a long way to go to match the food.

    Grill is a great venue with a fairly limited menu. A few years ago on fish night a fish taco was offered. What about roast beef night? We love to come but a revised menu would be great.

    Mother's Day Brunch advertised and it was a very bad experience. Food was left over sleigh ride dinner food and was awful. The service was very poor. Waitress didn't want to be there. The meal was a total joke. If you can't do a meal and service right and you don't want to do this which was evident you shouldn't do it. I tried to call and complain but the voice mail was still in winter mode.

    Mothers day special not so. $50 price fixed 3 courses. croissants were stale, Mozzarella salad very good, main course choices OK but the french toast and smoked salmon benedict were good. Dessert was an abomination, an overcooked biscuit with a strawberry a few blueberries, a blackberry acovered in a rancid fruit sauce made it unedible. My wife ordered a mimosa,which was $11 and a draft beer $9. Usually the restaurant is very good but this was ridiculous for any price

    Probably one of the worst meals we've ever had. Every course of our multi course meal had an issue. Cold food that lacked flavor from the sausage frittata, salmon eggs benedict to the biscuit and berries. Poached eggs were barely cooked and were translucent. Potatoes were like sponges. Really disappointed overall.

    The sleigh ride was incredible. The views of the town lit up at night made us feel like we were stepping into a Currier and Ives painting. The drivers were professional and accommodating. The bartender was legit. I put his old fashioned cocktail up against any that I’ve had in any big city whiskey bar. Finally, the food was great. I was not expecting great food, but it was incredible. I had the short rib with mushrooms and whipped potatoes and others had the bone in pork chop. This entire experience is a must-do in winter and is the best value in Steamboat Springs.

    When I booked this dinner reservation, there was no mention of a prix-fixe menu on Haymakers website. Once seated we were handed 4 course menus. $125 for adults and $60 for children. My children were served Kraft Mac 'n Cheese and canned mandarins with icy vanilla sundaes for dessert. The adult menu was fine but far from fine dining. The Short Rib was tough and the Salmon unexceptional in flavor. The dessert of chocolate mousse was similar to pudding from a box. You get the point, I hope! If you are booking simply for the experience of the horse sleigh ride, don't waste your money. Although it's a lovely scenic 20 minutes on the sleigh and the pictures are memorable, it's simply not worth the money.

    From the time we arrived until we departed, the service was 5 stars! We were fortunate enough to be able to attend the special Full Moon Snowshoe/Cross Country ski/Fat Tire Bike Fondue dinner at Haymaker. My husband & I had a blast with the Fat Tire rental bikes. The staff provided us with a proper bike fitting, map of the Haymaker bike trails, and away we went soaking up the beauty of the Yampa Valley. After building up an appetite, we enjoyed a wonderful two course fondue dinner in the club house. Tender steak & chicken, cured meat with vegetables were accompanied by a beer cheese fondue. Chocolate fondue with fruit, brownies & marshmallows perfectly finished our night. I hear the Sleigh Ride dinners offered Thursday-Sunday are a “not to miss” evening as well! Schedule your reservation at Haymaker. You will not be disappointed. Thank you to all who took such good care of us!

    The people here are fabulous and the food was good. The sleigh ride was more geared for little kids. It was basically a 20 min ride across a flat open field (golf course) and back. We paid $125 each for four adults and wouldn’t do it again now that we know what it is.
