My wife and I celebrated our anniversary at the ski tip last week. As usual, the food was delicious and innovative. Service was excellent. The restaurant is charming and welcoming.
Yes, it's pricey, but it is worth every penny if you are looking for a memorable dining experience.

The pork dinner was not very good. The carrot cake was not good at all. The service was wonderful and the atmosphere was awesome. I’ve been to the Ski Tip several times, and this was the first time I’ve been disappointed with the meal.

A perfect dining experience every time. It’s not cheap, but it’s worth it for the attention you receive, the quality of the food and the uniqueness of the experience. The chef got creative with an off-menu vegetarian meal for me, Don our waiter helped my stepdaughter with one of her first drinks ever (yes she is over 21 but has special dietary restrictions). Megan the sommelier was fantastic w with her suggestions. And the dessert experience is so great. Perfect spot for a special night! Thank you Dom and crew for everything!!!

I took my parents to Ski Tip Lodge for dinner and, after having read the reviews on Open Table, had high hopes for a memorable experience. We received just that. The service was among the best service I have ever received - warm and welcoming. The food was incredible - decent portion sizes for a fine dining experience (I left feeling full) and interesting flavor combinations. The best part of the dinner was the wine pairing. The sommelier came to the table for each course and shared stories about each wine, the region and vineyards they came from, and why they were chosen for the course. It was truly a special dining experience. The cost of the meal was high - three of us had a cocktail before dinner and adding the wine pairing to the four course meal and, with gratuity, I paid just over $500. For a special dining experience, though, I felt that we received in exchange for what was paid was well worth it. I highly recommend Ski Tip Lodge.

What a lovely experience! If you are anywhere in the area do yourself a favor and make a reservation. Our food was was amazing, prepared is an unexpected way. My husband and I have done many course meals paired with wine, but I have to say in all honesty Meagan gave us the best. Her knowledgable storytelling for each bottle she brought to the table gave us memories of a lifetime. She hit it out of the park! My hubs said it perfectly "This experience alone was worth the 13 hour road trip" We can't wait to return.

Beautiful setting near the lake. Interior of this old building wonderful. Staff excellent. Food very good but overpriced. Some add-on costs which we did not encounter at other restaurants in town. $280 including tip for dinner for 2. 1 glass of less expensive wine apiece. Memorable experience but wish it were more reasonable.

This may have been the best meal of my life and I have eaten at my share of top restaurants around the world. The food was divine, the wine was superb, the service was delightful, the ambiance/location was the perfect place for my husband and I as we were celebrating our 16th wedding anniversary. The cauliflower soup was the best ever followed by the best caprese and halibut which was equally superb in preparation and flavor, the layers of complexity blended yet stood strong independently like a perfect marriage! It was heavenly. Truly one of if not the best dining experiences of my life. Compliments to the chef and all who served us and made the evening historic. My only regret is that we live in VA not CO so it will be too long before we can return for another epic dining experience in a truly special place. I wish the Ski Tip was down the road. Thank you to all for an outstanding night!

Amazing to be at the Ski Tip for the last seating of the season. The food as always is superb and the service is second to none. Kurtis and Megan the sommeliers are a delight to work with and really make the meal special with a wine paring. This is my favorite restaurant in Colorado.

Charming place in authentic log cabin. Lovely stone fireplace. Service was excellent. Salad and soup courses were delicious. Lamb was tough and flavorless, but vegetables were perfect. Dessert was not good. We had apple strudel and bananas foster style waffle with ice cream. Both were served cold and would have been better warm.

We usually love this restaurant, but we were disappointed this time. The seafood in the bouillabaisse was overcooked and there were no beets on the beet salad. They brought another salad after we mentioned the beets. The duck was fantastic and cooked perfectly. The sommelier was amazing. We love our wines, so it was nice that they took out the time to tell us the stories that went with the wines. Overall, we love this restaurant, but we found this trip to be disappointing. We will definitely be back and hope that our next experience matches our past experiences.

Our favorite place for dining in Summit County. History abounds as the restaurant is in an 1860’s stage stop that once served passengers traveling over Argentine Pass from Georgetown, and was once owned by the Dervum family that started Keystone resort. Everything is top notch, and the dual sommeliers, Meghan and Kurtis, do the best job matching wines that I’ve ever seen.

Not to be missed if you visit Summit County...or live there!

Perfect evening, was everything I expected. I took my parents here, along with my children, and everyone loved their food. My mom said that it was the best meal she had ever had, and it was certainly up near the top of my list. It had snowed earlier that day so the ambiance was perfect for a meal in what feels like an old 19th century homestead. Having desert by the fire afterwards was a great finish to the evening. Highly recommend, it lives up to the hype.

We went here with our 9 and 10 year old kids. As a family we were all really pleased with our meal. We had a cocktail by the big fireplace before dinner. After we finished our dinner, we returned to the living room for desert. The kids thought that was really cool, and everything we ate was amazing. We will be returning next time we are in Colorado!

Dining at Ski Tip Lodge is always a special occasion. Plan on a well-paced food and wine experience (with the individualized wine pairing selected by Megan and Kurtis). The waitstaff are quietly efficient, knowledgeable about the day’s offerings, and welcoming. I tend to select the ‘game” option, but other selections have been superb as well.
Reserve early—often booked well in advance- and for good reason.

Always a classic fine dining experience. Top notch professional staff attending to every detail. The chef keeps the menu interesting. Never the same from one visit to the next, very creative and options for every palette.
The wine stewards, Megan and Kurtis, are the best. They will provide a history lesson on every winery/vintage if you ask.
When in Keystone and you're looking for a nice evening, this should hit the mark.

What an experience! SO cozy and full of that little warm mountain lodge ambiance! From walking down the path and passing through the front door, to enjoying the desserts in the lounge area..... All I can say is wow! Every flavor in each dish was so delicious and well thought out. Much more than food comes out of that kitchen, it's passion and extreme attention to detail, with a beautiful and tasteful wine selection to match.
Jamie was very professional, friendly, and personable. It was a pleasure to be served by him. You could tell he was genuinely happy to be taking care of us and was intent on making sure we had everything we needed, wanted, and then some. He went above and beyond!
The Sommelier who was on the floor that night was such a pleasure to talk to. Such a sweet woman with an advanced wine knowledge. My date and I thoroughly enjoyed the elegant Bordeaux she brought for us from Saint Emilion! It pains me that I don't remember her name, but she was a middle aged blonde woman with a very pleasant voice and disposition. She really added a nice touch to the whole experience.
Shout out to the chefs for that elk tenderloin with fingerling potatoes, and the sliced duck breast! GD! Desserts were also incredible!
You bet I'm gonna tell everyone about that meal! Thank you so much for the whole experience! I can't wait to return!
