While we have visited Keystone for years, we had never been to Ski Tip Lodge. What a treat from beginning to end. We will be back. Took a pic of tonight’s menu - lots of yummy dessert options that you won’t know about til after your main.

My wife and I have been to the Ski Tip numerous times and never, ever have been disappointed. The service and food are exceptional. The sommeliers are knowledgeable about the extensive wine list. The retreat into the fireplace room for dessert is delightful. I heartily recommend this restaurant to anyone who seeks a thoroughly enjoyable meal and dining experience.

We have eaten here before and there is no doubt the food is amazing and original. The history of this place is very impressive and being family owned is a plus in my book. The only complaint I have was that we were a little rushed through our meal and as expensive as this place is that wasn’t what I was expecting.

We had a wonderful time at Ski Tip! The wait staff was excellent, and we loved the repartee we had with our server, Cindy Lu. Kurtis, the sommelier, has an excellent knowledge base from which to choose just the right wine to pair with dinner. The rest of the staff was equally attentive. Kudos to the chef, everyone enjoyed their meal! It is also lovely to sit next to the fireplace to have dessert. Thank you to all for a wonderful time!

We were told the living rooms with fireplaces were too crowded for us to enjoy our desserts and coffee in that evening. The main reason one pays the high prices at this place is to end the evening in this special way. This was our fourth time to celebrate our wedding anniversary at this place... we won’t be back

Awesome place. Great dining experience. Get their early and enjoy a drink on their patio. Great sunset and saw a fox. Dinner was amazing. The service was very attentive including a very well informed sommelier. A great bottle of “j” wine and awesome dinner. I had an elk steak and my wife had a seafood dish. Both awesome. Then you “retire” to the fireplace for desert. I had the rhubarb strawberry crisp. Great experience. Make reservations now!

Overall it was a very nice experience. The food was very good but the portions were small for the cost of the dinner. It would have been nice to have a steak or chicken option for the entree. The selections were different than what was on the menu on open table. I guess the menu changes weekly. We probably wouldn’t have gone if we knew this weeks menu as it didn’t look as good as what was posted on open table so I would definitely double check what was on the menu for the week.

Look this restaurant is the best in the area no doubt. The venue is unbelievable, the patio very nice, and being welcomed into the living room/lounge area for a before dinner cocktail is very nice. I've been trying to get into Ski Tip for a few years only visiting Keystone for busy work events and never had luck finding open time slots that worked for me. I finally ended up here and was really wowed by a very unique dining experience. Unfortunately, a dinner was served cold, and we dealt with that awkward "let us heat it up" moment, or moments......something that ruined the dinner. I won't be back.

We were married here 24 years ago and were so excited that return for dinner. The beautiful and historic lodge was just as we remembered it. Several staff members have been there since before we married. They know the history of not just the property but also they know their wines! True professional who are knowledgeable and friendly!
We had a wonderful 3 course meal that is unbeatable in the area!

This is a favorite of my honey and I. We took my parents here in the winter and recently went again for our anniversary. The food and atmosphere are exactly what we want. Cozy and comfortable but high quality with outstanding service. The Ski Tip Lodge does not disappoint. It is fine dinning and expensive but worth every penny and doesn't have the snooty feel.

I write with pleasure to inform that my experience at the restaurant was memorable. In particular, the sommeliers were absolutely remarkable; I have never seen two people who enjoyed their positions or who were more engaged than at the Ski Tip Lodge. My server was also excellent. The lodge and surroundings were beautiful, and if you are in the area, this dining experience is a must—the food was excellent as well.

Another superb anniversary dinner for my wife and me is history at STL. We have come to expect the best at STL and they once again hit the mark.
A new executive chef has brought some spice to the table. If you would have asked me how spiced peanuts and pork belly go together, I might have given you a questioning look. But chef made it work beautifully—and Megan came up with a wine that stood up to the pairing task (as she always does). Although the old standard strudel was not on the dessert list (reprise pending perhaps?), the key lime preparation was terrific, with a touch of tart and bitter that was not overwhelmed by sweetness. We’ll be back.
