    Food was very mediocre to bad -- my steak was way undercooked and my husband's steak was just not a good cut of meat. The crispy brussel sprouts side was terrible. We dine out very frequently and are willing to pay top dollar for meals but this one was very disappointing to say the least.

    We visited last night to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. Upon arrival, we landed in a booth that was fairly noisy. When I explained to our server, Cameron, he quickly moved us to an extremely quiet location. The level of service at the restaurant was amazing. Cameron listened to our wine tasting preferences and recommended a stellar bottle of Pinot Noir. Our food was fantastic (two filets, mashed potatoes, and baked potato). The meal was prepared perfectly, and the steaks were fantastic. I was born in Texas and grew up in Kansas City, so I know steaks. Kansas City could use an Elway's, but I don't think the Chief's Kingdom would be very receptive, which is unfortunate as Elway's is one of the best steakhouses we've visited. If you are looking for a great food experience in Vail, I'd recommend Elways' every single time. Ask for Cameron and tell him the Chief's fans from Kansas City sent you. Cameron is amazing at his job!

    Went to Elway’s for first time. Made reservation on OpenTable and it was Vail Restaurant Week. Wait person seemed to not know the special offered and after a couple minutes I was able to state I wanted the Rest. Week special. Overall, I was very pleased with the the experience.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and our server went above and beyond to ensure we had a wonderful experience! Every person from the host to our busser was so friendly and kind the service was amazing! The food was delicious we had Cesar Salads, my fiancé had the NY Strip, I had the 8oz Filet, and we shared asparagus and the mashed potatoes. We had a chocolate cake for dessert. Everything was perfect, and scrumptious! I recommend Elways, especially if you are celebrating something! They go above and beyond to make your experience wonderful!

    The restaurant is very pretty and I loved the room with all the windows that we were seated in. The food was okay, certainly not the best steaks we’ve had but not the worst. The server was friendly. We only picked Elways because we were staying in the attached hotel and didn’t want to go out in the cold for dinner tonight but we likely will not dine there again as there are much better choices in Vail.

    Server was horrible and couldn’t wait to get out of there. Sidenote- no one, including the hostess should ever tell you the kitchen is closing at the beginning of a meal. Poor etiquette. Don’t go there. Find a better place that wants your money

    Drinks were very good. Truffle fries were amazing, especially the sauce. Steaks were extremely salty. Mine was cooked fine, my wife’s was over cooked. Mashed potatoes were great. Brussel sprouts were very bad. Minimal flavor and too much breading (turns out tempura is not my favorite cooking style for brussel sprouts). Chocolate cake was average to below average. Staff was great! Overall, we were a bit disappointed - I have had much better food for half the price.

    Excellent meal. Loved going there to celebrate my moms birthday. It was the first time any of us had been to any Elways location and it exceeded our expectations. Excellent service and food. The filet was a top 5 steak I’ve eaten and the lamb chops were great too. Sides were a little disappointing and wish they served the steaks on a hot plate. Other than that, I wouldn’t change a thing. Would highly recommend. 9.5/10

    Seating people from preferred hotels but ignored us. Menu has been chopped down to basically steaks. We ordered steak tacos but that was mistake and I couldn’t even get refill on iced tea. Place wasn’t busy but had little help so it made our 40th anniversary dinner one to forget.

    The hotel next door had a singer that was very loud. They sat us on the side instead of more on the true patio. Also we noted it was for a special birthday. Nobody acknowledged it like they did last year which is why we picked Elways. It was a disappointment.

    Service was very haphazard. Long wait between courses. Appetizer was inedible. Filet mignon was poorly cooked (with carmelized onions). All served stone cold. Long wait until side dishes arrived. Such a disappointment. We will not return to what was once one of our favorite restaurants in Vail. Management was extremely rude!

    Elway's is located inside the Lodge Hotel. The outdoor seating is wonderful. We enjoyed the grilled artichoke it's perfect to split for two people. The house salad was fresh and tasty and the filets were cooked perfectly. We added Peppercorn and Bernaise sauce both were amazing. Highly recommend and will definitely return.
