This is the second time we ate at Ketchum Grill! We decided to return on our last night in town as our first meal of meatloaf and basil fettuccini was so delicious, earlier in the week! Service was very good, wine reasonable, beer on draft was very good and gave my husband a taste before ordering. Our last dinner was Ravioli with sun dried tomatoes and mushrooms in an herb broth. Very flavorful and large portion. I also had the goat cheese and apple slaw appetizer which was delicious! My husband ordered the penne with chicken thighs that was equally good, and he loved the pea soup appetizer! Reasonable prices, cozy atmosphere, nice relaxing evening!

We were in Sun Valley/Ketchum for the week. Our meal at the Ketchum Grill was the best we had all week. The salad was crisp and cold with just right amount of dressing. The Sea Bass was outstanding as was our service. The homemade ice is amazing. Scott and his team consistently provide an outstanding experience.

Always a great pleasure to walk into the Ketchum Grill cabin to a crackling fire, a welcoming smile and a great dinner. The soups are always wonderful and nearly always different. The full menu is always there, but we usually find a tempting special on the supplementary menu. The wine list is truly spectacular, if you are feeling celebratory, but the wines by the glass are carefully chosen and always good with this carefully prepared comfort food. The Mama’s Salad is a perennial favorite, as is the lemon noodle dish and we can never resist the house baked bread basket. Dining alone? The bar is always friendly and fun when your someone is out of town, but we usually ask for a booth and often get one. In the summer, the terrace is wonderful at night.

The food is very good in the comfort food category. Nothing too fancy about it or the ambience. The service is a group effort that is both efficient and for lack of a better word prideful. I eat every time I come to Ketchum for more than 3 nights. If you are a foodie I’d probably skip it but if you want enjoy locally sourced food prepared simply and properly in a friendly family atmosphere you’ll love it.

We have eaten at Ketchum Grill many, many times but this time the server was atrocious. Among other things He left dirty plates and silverware on the table and tried to squeeze are main courses around them. It was such a turn off. It will be a long time before I go back.

Have been to Ketchum Grill several times. Food is consistently good. Service is friendly and efficient. Husband loves the meatloaf. It's a bit noisy and close, but if that doesn't bother you, it's a good spot.

Housed in an historic building in downtown, Ketchum Grill has a cozy ambience that matches the warm greeting at the door. Service is efficient and attentive without being intrusive. Our knowledgeable waiter made excellent recommendations on both food and wine and shared the same welcoming attitude.

The menu offers a superb selection — every choice looked delicious and it was hard to choose. Pasta and pizzas, fresh salads, local lamb, meat, chicken and fish dishes offer something for everyone. Most of the menu is gluten free and clearly marked. While savory and well proportioned, the food is not overly rich. After a meal of crisp salad and delectable lamb meatballs accompanied by spaghetti squash and mashed potatoes, we left feeling satisfied but not overstuffed.

The wine and beer list offer a nicely edited selection which pairs well with the food and has a good range of price points.

Prices are not inexpensive, but fair for the area and the quality of the food. Ketchum Grill is a go to favorite for a wonderful evening.

Consistency is the bane of the restauranteur's business and somehow the family that owns the Ketchum Grill and two other stellar Ketchum restaurants never seems to miss. We've dined at the Ketchum Grill many, many times over the years and the service and food always hover between excellent and superb.

Lovely little restaurant that was very crowded for obvious reasons. The tables are very close together! We made pleasant company with those dining around us. The food was well presented and delicious. The lamb shank was perfectly cooked. The pasta was delicious. We would definitely dine with them again.

The food was very good. A comment I would make is that the basic meal should come with a salad. The folks serving us were very pleasant and it was very obvious that all staff knew their menu and pairing of wine with the dinner selected. The environment was such that we could hear each other well enough to carry on a conversation. Excellent choice for our special event.

A very enjoyable evening with friends. We usually eat here 2 to 4 times a year but this evening was especially nice. Was it the company or the delicious fish (enjoyed by 3) or the duck? The chef also owns 2 other restaurants in Sun Vally and this one is often overlooked. Give it a try!

Ketchum Grill can be noisy if full, but it wasn’t a busy night and noise level was low - nice! I usually love the food here, but the slow food wasn’t great (pork was dry and not very flavorful). Others loved their dinners. Service was great.

My boyfriend and I went to ketchum grill for our anniversary, and had a great experience the shrimp cakes were quite good with the fabulous sauce that came with it. I had the monkfish and horseradish sauce that was one of my favorites and he had duck with Huckleberry sauce which was also quite good, the waitress was very nice and helpful by suggesting different wines for us to try we both enjoyed getting to talk to the manager when she surprised us at our table with our dessert. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to others, and plan to come back again soon.

Excellent small restaurant. Good food and solid service. Great mid-tier option in Ketchum. would choose here before some of the high end spots if you want very good food and don't want to spend a fortune. Good option vs. the bar food places to get better food and nice atmosphere. Would recommend a reservation since they have limited seating. Cozy and tables are fairly close together.

Disappointed in the food, no one in our party of 5 was enthusiastic about their meal, unfortunate since this has traditionally been a favorite. Also don’t really appreciate the wait staff gathering at the bar to fold napkins and enjoy their meal while we are sitting next to them.
