Everything was AMAZING except the music. It was So loud and it was surfer type music. It made me feel like I should be eatting over priced chicken fingers in Typhoon Lagoon and not the lovely and wonderful food that I was.
Great menu and specials. One of the best restaurants in the area
One of the highlights of our year. We try to go every Valentine's weekend. It's my wife favorite place. It's always exceptional.
The best date I’ve ever gotten to take my girlfriend on for a very special occasion will definitely be back!
Taylor was a wonderful server, she was excellent at multitasking.
Very nice setting , good service . Food was good ,but was not hot when served . Music selection needs updating .
Amazing Food! My husband and I went here for Valentine's day and it was perfect. We got the meat sampler appetizer that had Elk, Emu, Alligator sausage and Buffalo sausage. It was by far some of the best food I have ever ate. Our entrees and dessert were wonderful as well. I highly recommend the Emu Filet if it is available (the menu changes nightly).The waitstaff was excellent. Very friendly, helpful and attentive. It is pricey but worth it. Will defiantly be returning.
We had our Family Valentines Dinner Saturday night and once again the culinary experience was superb. The mixed grill and rabbit apitizers were great. Our entrees Axis Deer, Bison Filet, Phesant, Pecan crusted Trout, Elk, and Flounder we’re prepared to perfection. The wait staff was attentive with out being intrusive. The deserts are always incredible. The GameKeeper remains as one of the top dinning destinations in the High Country!
What a lovely experience we had at the restaurant. Loved the ambience, our server was very professional, knowledgeable and helpful. The food was fabulous.
Amazing food, amazing service, eclectic and entertaining music, kitschy ambience, unique dining experience all around. We'll be back!
Amazing as usual! Food was great, great service, good drinks!
Awesome meal with ecletic offerings....high recommend!!
Farm to table elegance. Wonderful, informed staff. Cozy, special.
Had a great date with my fiance and we loved the mixed grill which let us try a little of all the offered exotic meats. Will be back.
Amazing! The experience, food, and staff were! Our waiter Noah took very good care of us. It was very relaxing and enjoyable! The food is an unbelievable experience in your mouth, perfection! Would definitely recommend this hidden gem!
Can't wait to go back! This place is amazing! The oysters were absolutely perfect. The waiter was a doll, everything was perfect.
Great atmosphere, outstanding food, superior service.
Had been anticipating a meal at the GateKeeper for several years and somehow hadn't managed it. It was even better than expected. The preparations were outstanding
We had an exceptionally good experience. Originally it was a table for 2 but we had to change it to 6 at the last minute. We were accommodated with no issues. As always the staff was amazing and the service was impeccable. We have recommended the Gamekeeper to several of our friends whom have also visited and came back thanking us Tremendously. This is a must stop place anytime we are in the area. Thank you for a memorable experience.
Returned for our second visit, and appreciated the changing menu, seasonal options, knowledgeable staff and altogether culinary adventure. If you are visiting the Boone/Blowing Rock area, treat yourself to a food journey at the Gamekeeper.
The food at the Gamekeeper is always great. Lots of dishes you won't see anywhere else. The atmosphere is laid back and our server was friendly, attentive, and knowledgeable. You won't want to miss this local gem.
Only my second time here but is always great on service and best of all the food is fantastic.
Our server was very knowledgeable and helpful with suggestions from the menu. A very unique menu. The food was amazing. We will definitely be going back again. Our server gave us what felt like one on one service.
What a cozy place to dine on a cold snowy night. My trout was excellent!
On this particular New Years Eve night, the dinner was pre selected for us and was an 8 course meal starting at 8:30. Presentation was lovely and foods paced so that all was complete by around 11:00. Food was truly fine dining, with caviar, emu, elk steak, duck, lobster bisque, baked Alaska. Chose this restaurant partly because live music was scheduled for NYE festivities. There was no music as we were told the band “ was a no show” due to a recent snow fall. Very disappointing. Parking is scarce and on a steep incline. I felt the house turned restaurant was quite cramped. Travel to coat rack, and bathroom shared same pathway with kitchen staff, and waitstaff, so very congested. $$
Great food. Server was wonderful. Romantic. Unusual choices like Emu, Elk, Bison, Oysters & Flounder. Only one choice for vegetarian.
We had a great meal at The Gamekeeper.....we had been waiting to snag a reservation and we're glad it worked out. Service could have been a tad quicker at times, but the restaurant was very busy and our waitress seemed to have tables in another room, as well.....not a big deal.
Fantastic experience. My GF and I will be back as soon as we can. The ambiance is phenomenal and the food is even better. Make sure you get a hand crafted cocktail from my boy at the bar!
Unique and awesome menu. Great ambiance. Best in the area.
Great food and great service!
