The ONLY negative was a family of three small kids that didn't know how to control their kids! Very noisy until they left.

Our server who was listed as G on the bill was fantastic. Food was great as usual. The guy filling waters..... sucked. First gave us water that was 3/4 full. When I asked for more I got some attitude, he filled it up and got water and ice all over the table. Second time he did it, it took every ounce of me not to say something to him. It was obvious he was having a bad day. I get it. I’ve been in the restaurant business majority of my life and in customer service my entire life but you leave your attitude at the door. It was an anniversary dinner we didn’t get to celebrate because of COVID and honestly I was disappointed by his behavior and it ruined the night. If the staff is worried and stressed about being open during these times, then don’t be open & have crappy staff working. Plain and simple.

We made reservations and said we needed patio seating because of our dog. When we got there it took 10 min just to get someone to help us at check in and then they told us we had 6 people ahead of us and didn’t take reservations for the patio. They should have called us ahead of time so we didn’t make the trip from Denver to evergreen for nothing.

We have been going to keys on the green for 3 1/2 years. We live locally. This meal was bad all around. We arrived at 5:55pm. We ordered drinks right away. We waited about 7 minutes to order. It took an hour and 15 minutes to get our dinner. When the meals arrived, meals were lukewarm for the ravioli, trout, and the steak was overdone. Lamb chops were not rib chops, they were the cheap cut of Colorado lamb. Service was really slow. They said they had too many takeout orders. There was only one the group in the dining room and one other
Group on the patio . It was the first time we took our grown children to keys. Everyone was disappointed. We finished dinner at 7:30. All we ordered was one salad and 4 entrees. This meal was bad all around. They gave 1 drink on the house. Not really appropriate.

How could I have missed this place for the past 25 years?

We decided to give KEY ON THE GREEN a try when our Valentine's Day plans fell through. It was too late to go there on February 14th, but we were able to get reservations for February 16th instead.

When we arrived on time for our reservation, we were greeted with a friendly and welcoming smile and immediately seated next to the cozy stone fireplace. The atmosphere was Rustic Mountain Lodge style and since it is a small establishment, there was no crowd (even though all the tables were filled to capacity) and the entire atmosphere was quiet and relaxing.

The service was fast and the staff was attentive and accurate. They made one insignificant mistake in our order and provided us with a drink on the house to make up for it. I didn't have to draw their attention to the error nor did I have to ask for compensation. They caught the mistake themselves and offered a free drink without us asking for it.

The chairs were comfortable and the huge, rustic, 4-sided fireplace meant that we were able to enjoy our meal and most tables were close to the lovely fire.

This is not a "party place" but a sweet little nook in the mountains for a special meal that allows for conversation and companionship. It was a real win for us.

Our meal was delicious - cooked and seasoned to perfection.

We'll be going back to this place the next time we want to dine out.

This was a prix fixe 3 course dinner for Valentine's day. The food was very good as always. We love the old log lodge decor with animal photos, elkhorn chandeliers and huge stone fireplace. Very cozy and inviting. Unfortunately, our waitress was annoying. She spoke in a patronizing voice, asking all questions as "we"--How are we this evening? What would we like to drink? Have we decided on our order? And then the busser asked, "Are you still working on that?" Eating a lovely dinner is not work. These folks need some training in service etiquette.

It appears Keys has changed their menu. Most options were served “over linguine” and seemed to lack any sort of unique flavors. Our order of shrimp scampi didn’t have shrimp. The wedge salad, while expensive, was awful. Not truly a wedge. The burger was so so but might have been the safest thing on the menu. I know the owners have recently opened another restaurant in town so hopefully they are just adjusting to the change. Our waitress was good but she delivered the scampi sans shrimp and admitted later the kitchen knew it was wrong?? We ate with our jackets on because the room we were sitting in was so cold.
I do hope Keys figures it out as Evergreen has a shortage of reliable restaurants.

Very good but didn’t appreciate a $3 split charge on the salad. With $15 salad it was a little much.

Overall the dining experience was just okay. The atmosphere was the best part of the evening. The food was just average with an above average cost. Desert was very disappointing. I would not recommend this venue to any of my friends.

We've come to Keys on The Green for years usually for special occasions - but if we're "in the Neighborhood" We'll stop by. Would co;me by more often but we live 30 miles away. The experience is never hit - or - miss as with some popular restaurants but always exceptional.

As always, our experience at Keys was wonderful. We were seated next to the fireplace, which was perfect for the chilly evening. Our waitress was prompt and friendly. We were celebrating my husband's birthday and the waitress treated us to a slice of delicious chocolate cake. We are looking forward to bringing our out-of-state guests when they are here at Christmastime.
