2016 Thanksgiving Dinner was excellent. 2017 Thanksgiving Dinner was disappointing - turkey was served in big chunks, gravy and stuffing were lukewarm. Just not what we expected after having pitch perfect good last year.

Wow. Old and stuffy is the best way to describe this place. Had never been before. Doubt I would ever go back. All the other tables were older folks ordering steaks and baked potatoes. Carpet on the floor. Very dated decor. My husband said yea that's what a public golf course restaurant looks like. Ha. I got the $15 beet salad. So small. It was good but for $15 it should have been big enough to be a meal not a side salad.

On the plus side, we were seated right away and our server was pleasant and attentive. It was all downhill from there. Sticky table, stale rolls, meager side salad, tuna entree served without sauce, etc. This restaurant is fine for lunch but I'll never go back for dinner. It was very disappointing.

Very disappointing. Waiter was unprofessional. Nice but needed training. Bread very mediocre. Shrimp scampi was very salty. Pork chop was well done and dry..... ordered medium. Steelhead trout was tasteless and not fresh. Forgot baked potato that was ordered with trout. Had to wait for fourth persons plate for a long period. Others were almost done eating when last plate arrived. Coffee after dinner was served lukewarm and we had to share one spoon between 4 people to stir coffee. Dessert was our last hope. Creme brûlée probably was a mix... no body, key lime pie and chocolate cake was mediocre assumed just purchased from general supply house. Overall very disappointing. We were expecting much more for the price and menu description. Was not a fun dining experience all the way around.

Although we were seated at a particularly dark table near the bar, our experience at Keys was otherwise quite positive. The food was very good, and our server was friendly, informative and efficient, on point in all respects. She recommended the trout. We all had it and thought it was delicious: moist, tasty, expertly prepared, and well presented. Needless to say, we will be returning, if for no other reason to try other dishes, but I think we will request a window table next time or better yet sit outside.

I live in Evergreen and frequently come here because I enjoy the food and the service immensely. I had my teenage grandson from San Diego with me and I knew the food would make him very happy. We had a large, noisy group next to us so that was most unpleasant.
It was a good evening and the food was delicious and the waitress was very helpful.

My girlfriends and I had tickets for Evergreen Theater 7:30PM on Sat. I chose the restaurant as we had eaten here numerous times after golf and I knew locals come to eat and it was close to theater. There was a wedding upstairs and perhaps this affected the service but I was disappointed. Two in the group would not be able to make it until 6pm so we checked the menu online and had the group put in our order shortly before we arrived. Our drinks did not arrive until 20 minutes after ordering! Apparently the menu on the website is not current and one of the choices was not available but we were not told until 15+ minutes after the order was put in so one person's food was delayed.

The food was very good and everyone enjoyed their meal. We were able to eat and get to the theater in time but the delays and having to ask about our drinks and track someone down to pay made the experience less enjoyable than it could have been.

I will say to the restaurant that when you are very busy, make sure drinks are out quickly. People will be much happier and more inclined to order a second. We did not order a second round of drinks as the waitress ignored our question if the second drink would take another 20 minutes to arrive.

Even with the delays experienced this time, I would still go back and would recommend to friends. Go with a laid back attitude and plenty of time.

Extremely disappointed. Went out of our way to find a restaurant that did NOT have a Mother's Day buffet. One can only take so many buffets. Their website mentioned an Easter buffet but I checked often and there was never a mention of a Mother's Day buffet only their regular menu which is what we wanted. To show up and find that we cannot order from the regular menu, that all they have is a buffet was extremely disappointing. The buffet was $42 per person, the limited selection of food was tucked into a small corner. Carving Station was literally next to an open door so the meat was cold the minute it was placed on your plate. Dessert selection was minimal. Our waitress was terrible! She paid no attention to refills or clearing our plates. It's a buffet for goodness sake, what else did she have to do? The bus girl had to get my father's omelette because it was being ignored by our waitress under a heating lamp, the bus girl did a tremendous job, our waitress was terrible tall blonde, never got her name. The fact that they automatically put on an 18% gratuity for a party of 4 was an unpleasant surprise. That explains her attitude, she knew she was getting her 18% so she couldn't care less about our dining experience. Also not professional when you hear your meat Carver telling another employee that he doesn't understand why they even bother doing a buffet he called it a "cluster f!*k". He said they had a fully staffed kitchen don't know why they were trying to deal with a buffet. I know why they were trying to deal with the buffet, because they could price gauge you on the busiest restaurant day of the year. What were we supposed to do? We knew that any place else nearby was already booked. I know now not to trust website, so I will take ownership of that mistake. I've paid more for better buffets & service. The only saving grace was it was a beautiful Sunday and Evergreen is a pretty town.

We have had good experiences at Keys in the past...but not this time. I had the mahi mahi which was undercooked and the accompanyment underwhelming, certainly at 34$. My wife had the duck which was fatty and a small potion. In addition the bread-which tells me what to expect later-was pedestrian.
Did the old chef depart?
I felt for our waitress, but to her credit she gave us the birthday dessert and coffee on the house.

Restaurant did not have our reservation through Open Table. Told us this happens all the time...especially on holidays. Even though I had a confirmation e-mail from Open Table, the restaurant did not have it. They were very good about finding us another table. Food was "ok".
Shrimp was outstanding. Fruit Salad, scalloped potatoes and sliced ham were very good. Prime Rib was extremely rare and somewhat fatty. Salmon was somewhat dry and not especially tasty. Crab legs did not come with any "tool" to extract the crab meat. When asked about that, we were told that they mention this to the chef all the time, but nothing is ever done about it. The desserts were all little squares of cheesecake....cherry, chocolate, vanilla, etc. The cherry was the best; the rest were quite tasteless. They also had petit fours for dessert, but they were charing an additional $2.00 per square. Overall, the restaurant has a very nice view of the mountains (and the golfers); service was very good. The food was disappointing....but coming from Chicago, I'm finding that Denver restaurants just do not measure up. Living here, however, is fabulous. As always in life, it's all about tradeoffs, isn't it?
