Went to Bully Ranch with my family and was hoping to recreate a wonderful experience we had last September. This time we were disappointed with the service and, to a lesser extent, the food. The server seemed to have an attitude with a simple request of bringing an additional plate. Then she was sarcastic as she "tried" to find room for the plate of chips. This was noticed by our entire party. The food was subpar as well. And finally the automatic gratuity of 20% for our table of 6 was not appreciated.

We visited for lunch. The restaurant didn’t really meet expectations. Server was new and not very attentive. Food was okay. Expected better food and service based on other reviews. Maybe we just visited on the wrong day.

The patio was closed because of potential for rain. We were seated too close to a large table with small, noisy children.

The food was average and pricey but that is normal for Vail. Limited menu and wine list (they normally have a big wine list) due to COVID19 and some menu items weren’t available at all.

We went for dinner & sat outside on the patio. Very nice & good people watching. Tables were well spaced for distancing.

We had chicken pot pie & chicken fajitas. The pot pie was different, a giant flaky crust over a bowl of chicken & potatoes, with a few carrots. The chicken mix & crust were both delicious.

The fajitas were average fajitas, with an enormous amount of chicken, more than enough for 2 people.

Service was very friendly & excellent!

First time here and will absolutely be back. Every thing we ordered was fantastic! Pretzel and wings were great starters. Cobb salad was a hit. Burger and tots outta this world!!

Went here for the fajitas. The beef fajitas were very tender. The marinade was as flavorful as most good fajita places in the Austin area but all in all they were excellent.

Ate lunch on the patio which was beautiful. The service was great, enjoyed the food, and the ambience made it a special lunch.

We sat outside and the service was fine. We got a burger and chicken sandwich. The burger wasn't good but the rest of the food was decent.

Outstanding hamburgers and chicken pot pie. Upsetting unavailability of chocolate cake for dessert. Waitress goofed the beverage order. Outrageous prices! Happening crowd of families, dates, social get-togethers.

Very cool relaxed place with great service; however it doesn't need to cost $22 for a hamburger. I get that it's Vail but seriously.

We adore Bully Ranch and always enjoy at least one meal there when we are in Vail. Even coming out of the quarantine, everything was terrific. Loved the beef tacos, the rack of ribs was divine, and--of course--you can't go wrong with their burgers. Delicious all around.

Bully Ranch is doing a great job with the challenge of reopening after COVID-19 related closure! Eating lunch on the spacious outside terrace was a treat. Dogs welcome outside!
