Ranch House Restaurant at Devil's Thumb Ranch
Always a great experience. Excellent food, service and atmosphere.
Our group had the most amazing experience last Friday night. The service was incredible and the food was better than anything we could expect.
We can’t wait to go back!
The dining experience is lovely. Great food, service and outstanding views of the valley!
Fabulous way to celebrate our friends first visit to Colorado. They said it was one of their top meals ever- and they are foodies. Outstanding attentive staff. Love DTR and will be back again
Inattentive service. Average food. Not worth the price.
Great service with Shawn and a delightful evening celebrating my birthday and our anniversary.
The shrimp cocktail appetizer was a bit tough and not a flavorful as I would have liked. The Wagou strip was great as were the scallops.
Always great. Food out of this world and service to match. The setting and the view are fantastic.
Took girlfriend to Ranch House for her birthday. The setting was beautiful, service was excellent and the food was very good. It is expensive, so be prepared to spend. Highly recommended as the finest restaurant we have found in Grand County. Use for special occasions or if you just feel like spending for a great experience!
Just a wonderful experience. Waiter was fantastic and the food delicious.
I can not recall what the waiter called the assortment of herbs on the small spoons, but I wanted to steal the recipe...ours had sage, ginger, cucumber, carrot and a very small rectangle of vanilla jelly, all simply piled on this small handled spoon. Out of this world yummy!!
We will be back. If you have never been, BE THERE, GET THERE.
Natalie, our server, was wonderful!!!!
Thanks so much! Alan & Linda
Excellent service, low key and friendly at the same time. Delicious food, and the Wagu beef was especially good.
I came with my two daughters (9 and 6) and our server was very accommodating with the adult and kid menus. It is SUCH a beautiful setting and we were so happy to be there during daylight hours. We arrived at 7:30 for an 8:15 reservation and they were able to seat us right away which was an added bonus. While it is definitely more appropriate for a special occasion or a night with just adults, I was so pleased at their friendly and welcoming service with a mother/daughter trio!
Everything is always great at Ranch House! The food, the views, the wine...always top notch.
Lovely setting, charming, food excellent, but service lacking. Never clear bread played without first asking if additional bread is wanted. Make certain a second glass of wine is poured when wine glass is empty, and be attentive that the non-drinker’s beverage is kept filled. A diner at an upscale restaurant should never have to ask for a re-fill. Attention is lacking in service, and is not the norm at a high-end restaurant. However, the setting is awesome, and the meal superb.
We love the RanchHouse. Try to start dinner near 7 and watch the view change. One of the best restaurants with one of the best views.
Can be noisy if kids are present. This is my wifes favorit place in Winter Park area.
Took my wife to Devil's Thumb Ranch for her birthday, and we had dinner at Ranch House Restaurant. They sell Wagyu beef raised at the ranch. A filet mignon is $14 per oz. with a minimum order of 5 oz. I ordered an 8 oz. filet mignon and, when asked how I wanted it cooked, I said I wanted it either medium or medium-well, depending on how the chef defined those terms; I wanted the center to be pink but not red. The waitress said she would talk to the chef to make sure it was cooked as I wanted it. When it came out, it was well done. Not even a hint of pink in the center. The maitre-d' came by to ask how everything was, so I explained. He took the steak back and brought me another one. This time it was rare. So I sent it back again, and the third time it was what I would call medium well or a little beyond. Still not what I had ordered, but by that time my wife had almost finished her entree and I didn't want to wait for a fourth try. I don't think this was the waitress's fault; she understood what I wanted. The problem was in the kitchen. When you pay $112 for a steak, you would think they could cook it to order at least the second time. To be fair, they did comp us for a second glass of wine and a dessert, but the dinner was not what I had hoped for.
Another great anniversary celebration at The Ranch House. Natalie was an excellent waitress as always with excellent suggestions from the menu and some special treats to help us celebrate. The food was all excellent and the sommelier has great advice on the wine list.
Outstanding evening in an outstanding room. Restaurant was very busy and staff was a bit frayed but Jeff never let us down, giving us his best and making us feel special. Devil's Thumb Ranch is our favorite place in a state we've lived in for decades so we weren't surprised at the excellence of the Ranch House restaurant. What did surprise us was that the Devil's Thumb experience had gotten even better since our last visit. Only glitch at Ranch House restaurant was a poor rendition of German Chocolate cake for dessert. Nothing special, even tasted a bit stale. Didn't spoil our evening, however, and we can't wait to return to Devil's Thumb and their outstanding fine dining experience at the Ranch House.
Beautiful with great service
Excellent food, great views and our server Seanne is wonderful!
Ranch house is a lovely restaurant in an amazing setting. Devils Thumb Ranch is a delightful, beautiful place.
The food, ambiance and service were impeccable.
We were very unhappy with our experience at the Ranch House. Service was extremely slow. Upon arriving I was asked about allergies. I told them I have some nut allergies but can definitely eat almonds and peanuts. My starter was an. Extremely expensive pile of lettuce with a sprinkling of cheese. The salad was supposed to come with almonds but they left them off which was A bit surprising given all the effort made to ask me about allergies. The wait between our first and second course was extremely long. I ordered a Pork Chop which when it finally came had a sauce on it that was so unpleasant it ruined the taste of the meet. The trout ordered at our table had the same situation and overpowering sauce. We were also a bit surprised by the small slice of bread given to us with butter. When someone at our table asked for more bread they were given one more slice but nobody else was even asked. All in all it was just a very disappointing experience.
I am very picky when it comes to spending a lot of cash on restaurants. This place is not cheap, but worth every penny. I really feel like I got a crazy great deal for our wedding anniversary celebration. My wife had Elk and I had Bison that were outstanding. I will recommend this restaurant to anyone wanting a fantastic meal in a beautiful environment with outstanding service
Service was superb as well the trout!! Thank you, Alan & Linda
Love the comfortable feel of Devil's Thumb Ranch and the dining goes right along with it. We spent the evening and really enjoyed ourselves
We really enjoyed our Father's Day meal. Our waiter was patient and attentive, and helped us plan a surf and turf type meal that was good for everyone present. The crab cakes are simply wonderful, so we highly recommend them. The meat was well cooked and well flavored. We enjoyed our time. They were also helpful with a sleeping toddler!
Excellent food, but it took an hour and fifteen minutes to get our food on a night that wasn’t that busy.
That said, the food was excellent. Just extremely slow.
Food was good, service was good but it took quite awhile for our food to come out and there was never an explanation of why it took to long.
The chef fixed us an appetizer that had been off the menu for the week . We thoroughly enjoyed our steak tartare and crab appetizers. We had the elk loin for the main course and it was properly prepared and delicious. Plan to go back when we are in the area again. One of our best dining experience. Service was great!
Was very good. Filet was high end. My husband loved the Elk. Enjoyed our dinner.
Fabulous! One of the best meals I’ve had!! The elk!
Very nice welcome - perfect table by the window / Beautiful views - Service was excellent - Food was spaced per our request that we wanted a beautiful relaxed dining experience - Felt like we were in Europe - From cocktails .. appetizer, entrees to dessert and coffee - lovely
amazing-- one of my favorite restaurants in the state of Colorado
We go to Devil's Thumb Ranch every year for a few days and always make a point for Dinner at the Ranch. Is great for special occasions and always has a hard to find Bourbon for drink before dinner. The Wagyu Steaks are a favorite of my wife, I had the Lamb which was Excellent.
Way too expensive for what it is. It’s a limited menu of glorified wedding food. Devils thumb ranch is beautiful but this restaurant has really fallen off over the last 4 years of coming here.
Our meal and service were amazing. I tried elk for the first time, and it was delicious. The filet was worth the price. The wine menu was also very impressive.
Totally awesome, incredible food, exemplary service! This was our first time eating here in the Winter season, and the snow scene was just as pretty as the summer beauty of the area. I missed the tasting menu that has been available in the past, but the guidance of Shawn, our waitress to a wine we might like (We loved it!!) made up for it. There is enough variety in the menu to satisfy our resident vegetarian as well.
The food and service were outstanding. Definitely a little pricey, but worth it. Only downside is trying to get a ride home. We took their free shuttle out there, but it stops running at 8:30. Our shuttle driver gave us the card of a local uber driver, who did take us home, but it took a little time to get into contact with her. The local taxi company would not answer their phone.
