It was great our 3 kids ages 8, 10,& 13 also enjoyed it! Everyone was very friendly and accommodating! Thanks!
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.
Loved the sleigh ride, the atmosphere, and the food. Our family wants to do it again when we come back for sure!
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
They rushed us in and out....brought our jackets to the table to usher us on our way. Too much money for that service.
I am so sorry to hear about your experience .We really try to ensure that all our guests have great time and apologize that was not the case for your party. I take these comments very seriously and will follow up with the staff on how last night came across to our guests, how you felt rushed and tools to prevent this in the future. Thanks for your input and do not hesitate to reach out if you would like to provide anymore feedback on your night. Sorry again, Carla 970-879-1265
Had a rough time last year but this year we picked Haymaker for our dinner/sleigh ride for Mom. We made a great decision. Thanks Haymaker! You made Mom happy which makes our family happy..
Loved it. Thank you
We had a great time - the sleigh ride was such a memory for our family, and the dinner and service was perfect.
We had a wonderful night! The atmosphere could not have been more perfect. The service was amazing and everyone treated us like family. I would highly recommend!
Great atmosphere with delicious food served by friendly and accomidating staff. My favorite meal is the trout and my wife enjoys the baked chicken.
Family get-together. Took the early sleigh ride to enjoy the views with the remaining day-light. Food and service were excellent.
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.
great horse drawn sleigh ride followed by an excellent dinner
The sleigh ride dinner was so much fun! The whole night was so well organized, the food was delicious (chicken and ribeye) and the kids enjoyed getting to drive the sled for a bit! Worth doing when visiting steamboat.
Nine of us including 3 children went on the hayride then dinner. A great family outing. Hayride was fun and the dinner was very good. Very relaxed atmosphere which made it easy to be there with small children. It exceeded our expectations.
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.
Hi Missy J, Again I am sorry to hear about your experience. We did talk on the phone yesterday and I am hoping that the resolution was sufficient, I apologize that this matter wasn't taken care of the night of your visit. 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
Super great weather, super great food, super great service what else can you ask for what we look at as a magical night.
Great fun on the sleigh ride and terrific food and drink service before ride and after.
Great food, excellent service, friendly and energetic staff. Wonderful evening for the hayride.
The staff was fabulous. Very friendly and every one of them went out of their way to provide outstanding service with a smile.
We did the Sleigh ride dinner and thought that it was a little pricey
Fabulous sleigh ride with a nicely prepared dinner. Followed by a great dessert! Having the shuttle service was a bonus too!!
Wonderful experience. Hotel shuttle on time and courteous. Sleigh ride a great time. Food and service was fabulous.
We had a great experience at Haymaker! The staff was amazing and food was great! I would highly recommend the experience!
Wonderful romantic evening! Bus driver was funny and friendly! Sleigh ride was really really cool! Dinner was delicious!
What a wonderful experience, from beginning to end. We did the sleigh ride with dinner in Jan. And loved it! What a wonderful date night.
What a fantastic night. Sleigh drivers and their beautiful horses are just magnificent! It was a truely
Magical evening. Food was fantastic and the staff very attentive and very professional.
Perfect evening everyone needs to experience this special night in steamboat springs.
Thankyou very much.
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.
Haymaker sleigh ride Great option for special occasion
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.
An amazing experience for my family. Food was good and our waitress was very nice and friendly. The bus driver was very nice and the sled drivers was very friendly. Would highly recommend to anyone.
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.
Great sleigh ride after tapas followed by delicious dinner. All employees were pleasant and helpful. We already recommended it to another family at our resort.
Service was great but food bad for the value and the ride in the dark was disappointing. Sorry for the horses having to pull close to 20 people.
Helana, Thank you for coming out to the Haymaker for the Holidays! I am glad to hear that the service was excellent but am sorry to hear that the rest of your experience wasn't up to par. We take these comments very serious and will pass them along to the Chef and Sleigh Team to see if we can approve upon the things you have mentioned in this review.
It was a great evening! Very welcoming staff and the wait for the sleigh was minimal with delicious appetizers served. The sleigh ride was magical and interesting.
A nice photo was taken to remember the night.
Our girls group love to go to Haymaker for lunches and special occasions
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.
I am so sorry to hear your Haymaker experience did not meet or exceed your expectations. Thank you for your comments as we will keep them in consideration in planning for the upcoming winter season.
Loved the scenery and food. Great and friendly service. Will be back soon
Came here for the sleigh ride dinner and it was phenomenal! The sleigh ride was great, our drivers were fantastic and Soda and Scotch were perfect! The food was next level, and the service was great. If you’re in steamboat, I highly recommend!
We did the early sleigh ride dinner on Valentine's Day and everything was fabulous! I would highly recommend the earlier sleigh ride dinner for a special occasion. The scenery at sundown was amazing and the dinner was fantastic too!
