Always a solid burger to be had at Bully Ranch. The servers are as kind as can be and kudos to their ability to accommodate as many parties (COVID safe!) as possible. Great place to take the family and friends but MAKE RESERVATIONS!!

Their signature item chicken pot pie was not what we used to in the past. The crust was gone and replaced by puffed pastry. Very few vegetables and limited chicken. The sauce was like out of Campbells soup. For the price, they need to improve this dish.

Atmosphere is wonderful, food is good not great. My steak was well prepared but tough, the fajitas were delicious and the fish tacos were good. Prices were reasonable for Vail. Overall it's a great place for a casual friendly meal but don't expect gourmet.

Very delicious! I had the bully ranch fried chicken (buttermilk and corn flake batter) without the bun, and with a side of mashed potatoes instead. It was so good! I also loved the fresh baked little olive dinner rolls. We come here a lot. The patio seating and indoor seating are both lovely

Ate a late lunch here with friends after a zip lining adventure. Food was awesome & wine list by the glass was great! We sat on the patio with a view of some beautiful aspens with lots of gold color. We’ll definitely eat here again on our next trip to Vail. The burgers are outstanding although a bit pricey & the service was excellent.

Great food, large portions, and good service. Overall we had a great meal. My only complaint would be our table was not wiped down before we were seated, I cleaned it with a napkin. Our waitress was very busy so refills were slow.
I would recommend this restaurant for families.

We had to audible on our Honeymoon as one restaurant did not have outside seating. At first we asked for a table outside, but were so hungry that we reluctantly sat at an inside table, when we were told we could not dine outside.

Nachos were overly dressed to the point all the chips were soggy, the tacos had low grade cuts of meat. The burger was good.

Really nice table on the patio. Wait staff dropped some dishes and were really loud when tables were being cleaned but other than that the food was great and the seating and scenery was great. I’m a local and I’ve never been on this patio. Will most definitely be back soon.

Bad service. Waiter spilled sour cream all over my expensive shoes and clothes. Also it was packed in there , almost no social distancing being practiced. Did not feel comfortable where we were seated.

The food is just ok (think TGIF, Chili’s, etc.). It amazes me just how mediocre restaurants can be in resort towns. How this appears as four stars is beyond me. Everything seemed like fast food. Nachos we terrible (with gravy like queso poured all over them so much you couldn’t hardly find a chip to grab). We as consumers need to start being less generous with the stars we give out. Four stars should be well above average and this place is below average.

A great ambience in this alpine style restaurant. The food was good American fare. The staff did a great job with a difficult situation. Good social distancing and Covid-19 protocols made it feel very relaxed.

Was ok. Patio is nice. Server kinda acted like he was just ready to go home. Nothing special. Wagu burger was amazing and so was the chili. Chicken breast was really dry. We had one drink each and two meals- $100 total. Probably not worth the price.

One of our favorite venues for lunch. They have nice outside seating with umbrellas and the service is great. All of their staff are wearing masks including the cooks and we observed them extensively cleaning the tables, menus, and chairs after each seating which is reassuring in this era of Covid. Diverse menu for everyone including gluten free breads and buns.
