    The staff was very pleasant, helpful and attentive. We also like the decor. The casual atmosphere was just what we were looking for after a day of travel. The food good but not exceptional but that could have been what I ordered. I would definitely go back and try them again

    We really enjoyed the meal and the ambience. The staff were all professional and courteous. We went for an early sitting (5:30 PM) so the time was very quiet. I suspect it could be more lively (noisy) later in the dinner cycle when all the tables are full. Overall we had a great time.

    The staff was wonderful and attentive. Our waiter gave recommendations to us based on our preferences. The restaurant itself has après-ski Swiss style nod and is well lit without being bright. Open kitchen and bar but not noisy at at all. They accommodate children and I noticed they have crayons and a separate menu, but there weren't any children other than an infant. Food-We had the shrimp appetizer which was outstanding, flavorful and fresh. The tortilla chips were crispy. The shrimp in a sort of ceviche style were in a tangy broth full of onions, cucumbers, avocado. Delicious! For dinner I had the peach and buratta salad, I wanted to lick the plate! Fresh buratta cheese with grilled peaches and tomatoes perfect amount of balsamic drizzle and grilled bread. So delicious the flavors complimented each other perfectly. My husband had the fried chicken sandwich and truffle tots. He described the sandwich as "a bit messy, but worth it". Chicken was moist with a tasty coating and the bun soft, but not squishy. Next visit to Vail we will be back!

    Horrible experience, we waited 30 minutes after being seated until a wait staff decided to see if we were going to order. Didn’t bother giving refills or checking on us after that first time. Served us burnt toast with the ricotta appetizer and treated us awfully. The only thing that stood out to me was that we were the only interracial couple there and I feel like they were discriminating against me and my wife. Her pasta came out undercooked, hard and cold and my burger came out undercooked and cold as well. The waiters were checking up on every table around us and would even look at us but wouldn’t bother taking care of us. I remember seeing all the food at the other tables coming out steaming and the waiters checking up on every body but us. It took an arm and a leg just to get the check. Racism is real here

    I had eaten at Bully Ranch several years ago, so I decided to reserve a table again because I was familiar with the restaurant. Everything was good, but the prices were extremely high. Between the two of us, we had Bolognese, a bowl of soup, brussel sprouts and one beer. It was $70! Yikes!

    I ordered their featured burger medium rare. It came more than well done. Waiter said unacceptable and took it away. Brought another one which I cut in half. Waiter again said unacceptable. Over well done. I gave up. Wait staff great. They immediately saw the poor results of the kitchen. Lots of places to get a medium rare $25 burger. Not here

    Server didn’t even tell us name. Forgot the salmon on my girlfriends salad (and yes I ordered it and didn’t “think” I ordered it). Hahah it then came out 15 minutes later and there was no apology or remorse.
