This place was fantastic! Honestly the best steak I’ve ever had and the clam chowder was worth its own trip.

We have been going to Snake River Saloon and Steakhouse for many years because we frequent Keystone. The ambiance is wonderful and the service is excellent. When there is music in the bar area, that can be a lot of fun too. There may be some other fancier restaurants in Keystone, but this is our go-to favorite.

The Snake River Saloon has been in Keystone at least since the 70's. It's a great mountain restaurant and bar which is quintessential Rocky Mountains. Food was excellent. Service was great. Even with the Covid restrictions in place, we had a marvelous meal.

Reservations could use a little work, asked to confirm a day before by text, then at 4p the same day got a call from a random cell # and was ask to call back and confirm by 5p or our reservation would be cancelled and there was no answer and the message on the VM was a different tel #

We understand there might of been confusion. There have been issues with people confirming with open table & not coming in for their reservations. As a restaurant separate from Open Table and due to covid capacity restrictions we are also confirming reservations to avoid no show situations- with long wait lists and very few tables- with texts hence the cell phone #. Thank you for your understanding & happy spring break!

Overall maybe okay, but that’s a stretch. The food was palatable, but in and of itself not worth its price. So, let’s consider ambiance and service. Well, once I noticed the rod iron gates with padlocks hanging from them throughout which are used to close off the various sections of the restaurant, I could see little more. The setting is like an 1800s jail cell with rickety wooden chairs inside. Service? Oh Boy... While he wasn’t rude, in a word my wife describes him as creepy. Not wanting to be cruel, I’ll just leave the details alone.
So, having spent $120 on dinner for two, 3 stars is really a sign of kindness.

A very appropriate dining experience to end our family spring break trip! The steaks were tasty and cooked precisely as we ordered them. I think we will make it a tradition to go to Snake River Steakhouse on our final evening on our annual trip to Keystone!

Salmon and prime rib were delish
Sides were great too. Special attention paid to 2 grandkids was so kind. Seated soon after getting there. We've gone to this restaurant for 20 years. Great dinners and memories.

We have been dining at the Snake for over 10yrs so it’s been as comfortable to us as your favorite shirt.
Once again the food was top notch.
However, our servers lack of enthusiasm was evident to our entire party. She was very efficient but in a workmanlike way.

Food was hot and well prepared. Salad was crisp, cold and everyone commented on the quality of the house made dressings. Tartar sauce accompanying the Walleye was some of the best outside of a Great Lakes fish fry.
