This was my first time at Haymaker. The venue is lovely, with views of the surrounding Yampa Valley hills and mountains. We enjoyed the friendliness of the ranch hands who handled the teams of horses for the sleigh ride. The driver had a sweet yet clever sense of humor while his assistant was very informative about the area. The sleigh ride was briefly interrupted by a fun opportunity to make snow angels! We returned to the restaurant, where our table was immediately ready. The server inquired about food allergies or sensitivities (none). The soup was delicious (minestrone is not a favorite of mine, but I would have had a second bowl, if the salad wasn't so appealing)! The bread and honey butter was a hit! The ruby red, Colorado-sourced trout was delightful, lightly topped with a mild red pesto. Sautéed vegetables and rice pilaf completed the meal. A terrific tiramisu added the final touch. The staff was attentive and informative. We felt relaxed, warm, and welcome.

The special snowshoe full moon fondue event was fabulous! Beautiful full moon, an hour of snowshoeing (others xcountry skiied) followed by a delicious fondue dinner (and chocolate fondue for dessert ). The waitstaff is always friendly and attentive. We had a grand time and will look forward to attending this special event next season.

The experience with the beautiful horses was great but the view wasn’t. You ride in a circle in an open golf course. The ambience is great and people are friendly but food is better in town. One thing that was not necessary was to charge us 2 dollars for a glass of ice. Pricey experience that you think they could not charge for ice haha.

Thank you for your feedback. I am hoping you did not get charged $2.00 for a plain cup of ice. If so please reach out to me (970-879-1265) . I am thinking it was the $2.00 upcharge to your drink that you ordered on the rocks. The way it prints on the receipt makes this very confusing. Please rest assure that the upcharge wasn't actually for the ice but the extra ounce of liqour we pour for you when you are getting a drink on the rocks. I hope this brings some clarification. Thanks, Carla

People were awesome, from the shuttle driver, the sleigh driver, the bartender and the waitstaff. Great folks all of them. Had a great, yet pricey, cocktail and the sleigh ride was real neat. Regarding the meal, this is just a golf course that you happen to be eating at during the winter season. The food reflected that. Maybe the cost of the shuttle, the cost of the sleigh ride and then the meal all make it work but, getting out of there $250 lighter for the two of us made it feel a little 'tourist-trappy'. Again, no regrets and lovely people.

Called ahead to let them know about a black pepper food allergy. Host confirmed when I arrived. Waiter also confirmed and told me I couldn’t have any of the soups. My steak and potatoes came out smothered in Black Pepper. I was told the Chef made a mistake. Called the next day to speak to a manager and never received a call back. I left there very hungry since all I ate was a salad.

We really try to accommodate all allergies and sensitivities and I am truly sorry that that was not the case for you. I was happy to hear that you daughter and the rest of the party had a nice time and hopefully you will give us another shot in the future. Thanks,Carla

My group feels it was unorganized. We were told when we arrived we would have appetizers passed and a cash bar. We hung our coats, as suggested and a slice of pizza, there might have been an asparagus wrap and waited in line for a drink. When we had a turn to order our drinks, they were asking us to go out side. We grabbed our coats and drinks and headed out to find no one telling us what sleigh was ours to get on. It felt rushed, that whole process. The sleigh ride was fun, except we stopped and no explanation was give to why. Maybe to rest the horses or to buy some time?
The meal was good, service also, our question is this, who gets the tip? The price was for both sleigh ride and food service. How does a person know how to tip.
The on line reservation was confusing, you order a 7 o'clock dinner and the time changes to6. Why-6 is your pick up for your 7 dinner. How would your guest know that.
We are on vacation and had a nice time, but these are some things that could be worked on.

Great experience at Haymakers. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. We enjoyed the horse drawn sleigh ride. You certainly did not leave there hungry, the 5 course meal was more food than any of us could finish. Server was very polite. We used their shuttle, which provided prompt pick-up and explained what to expect during the evening. It was a very low key relaxing evening with my family.

This was a very fun experience. It started with the driver of the coach that picked us up at the Steamboat Grand ontime, Jeff was very informative and engaging. When we got to the restaurant they were all ready for us to go on the sleigh ride. The sleigh ride attendants and driver were very engaging, even though it was cold and snowy, we enjoyed it. Then there wa the dinner, it was very delicious, the restaurant was not moist so it was great to have conversation with the family.

All in all, it was a very good experience, I definitely would recommend this as you visit Steamboat.

Came here for a sleigh ride dinner. They gave us dry scaly bread since we couldn't eat the cornbread (had bacon bits in it). I could tell they were old bread.
The main courses were good (had pasta and roasted root vegetables), but the desserts were rather bad. I had panna cotta which did not resemble anything like a panna cotta - it was frozen, thick and creamy...
My fiance ordered vanilla ice cream for which they instead gave mango sorbet with bourbon caramel (he doesn't drink alcohol). We brought it up with the waitress but she reassured us that this was vanilla ice cream. Vanilla ice cream at other tables looked different from ours! We gave up at this point.
