Ski Tip Lodge Ratings and Reviews
I have dined there before and it had a great ambiance with calming lighting and a low noise level.
This time we were pressured in to buying more wine every 15 minutes, felt rushed and the fact that they allowed 2 guests at the table next to us to constantly be on their phones (and I truly mean the entire time) we felt like we were dining at a lunchtime bistro.
Our first night dinner experience for the week was at Ski Tip Lodge. Place is quite cozy, with two fireplaces and very kind staff. They serve 4 course dinner for adults and 3 curse dinner for children, at $80 and $45 respectively. Food was average, very good soups and desserts, but very average main entrees, especially the Wagyu Beef Striploin, which does not taste at all like Wagyu beef. Having a bottle of wine, and tips. We are talking almost $400 for a family of 2 adults and 2 children. That is the price of a 2-3 stars Michelin, and this is far away from such food experience. Maybe they consider giving the fix price menu as optional.
Ski Tip is located in an authentic early 1900's ski lodge. Very quaint, and intimate. Dinner is prix fixe and is always excellent in my opinion. Great wine list and somailas available to help. Price is about $80 per person for 4 course dinner, and while not inexpensive is very worth the price.
Our waiter this trip was Dominic, and he did a great job.
If you want to spend $300 on a meal and leave hungry, go here. We ordered the steak, but you don't get a whole steak. Instead, you get three slices of steak and it was chewy! I had quail and there was maximum 2 oz of meat on my plate, along with a tablespoon of mashed potatoes. The service was great but we will not be back. So many other options at that price level.
The staff was as wonderful as the food. It was just a few days before our 18th wedding anniversary and when we retired to one of the sitting rooms by the fire for coffee and dessert, our server brought out a large plate decorated with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate around our dessert selection. They also modified the dessert a little to meet our request, which my wife was very happy with. A very cozy and wonderful dining experience.
Ski Tip Lodge was a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary. The staff were friendly and professional. The food was fabulous--unique but not so unusual that you wondered what you were eating--well prepared and presented beautifully. We will come back here more often!!!
I simply can't say enough good things about Ski Tip! I feel so lucky that I got to eat there with my family for Christmas Dinner. It was the best Christmas dinner ever. Everything was done to perfection. We enjoyed everything we ordered, the bread was outrageously good and I could have just filled up on that and the charcuterie plate with housemade goodies. We ordered scallops and tenderloin - truly outrageously good. We're from Chicago - we're picky - we know good food. This food was so great that I had to ask how many Michelin stars did they have! Of course, dessert was divine and then, out come home made truffles - I'm in love! And, even though we had a 5 year old in tow - everyone was so NICE to us. We were the noisiest and most festive table which made it even more special if that's possible. Thanks, Todd - you were so wonderful and made us feel welcome and cared for. Can't wait to ski again in Keystone just to eat here again! Many blessings and Happy 2018 to the team at Ski Tip - hope we meet the Chef next time, too! Peace!
Most of the staff has been there for many years--a good sign of management. The sommelier was exceptionally knowledgeable about wines (either that, or he was just telling stories, and I don't know enough to know better!). The ambience was quiet, warm, conducive to conversation. We didn't feel rushed. Great service. Fun time, and fabulous food that didn't leave me weighed down. The flavors were awesome, the food was fresh, and I felt satisfied without feeling too stuffed.
My husband & I have been coming to the Ski Tip Lodge for our anniversary or A date near Christmas for the last 8 years. The food is exceptional. Service impeccable. And NOTHING beats dessert served by the fireplace. The sommelier is very knowledgeable and helpful. I love their focus on local wines & meats. This year, they treated us to a prosecco toast & dessert plates with “Happy Anniversary” written on them for our anniversary. This place is an incredible treat that I get very excited to go to every year!
Wonderful historic spot. The Sommelier was awesome, but the food was lacking for the price. My husband had the short rib which was very fatty. I had the lamb which was little meat, tough and also fatty. For the price, I would expect the highest quality food. The service was impeccable along with the ambiance.
Very quaint mountain lodge with excellent food and wine. Has a great European feel. I would highly recommend this to anyone with fine dining on the mind. Note- it’s a fixed price multi course dinner for everyone. The choices are all great but don’t go expecting to get “just a salad”. Waitstaff is super professional and experienced they all did a great job.
I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. He said it was top three dinners he’s ever had (he’s a foodie from Chicago), but hands down the best service and coziest atmosphere he’d ever experienced. We loved our time here. I was a bit nervous about not seeing the menu ahead of the time, because we only eat fish protein, but they had fish options for each course. Worked out perfectly!
I went to ski tip Lodge based on its reviews. All the reviews were so wonderful that I thought wow I should really try this place. Well the food was just good, the portions were extremely small and I definitely think there are better places in town than this for your value as well as the ambiance. If you like limited options and dishes that are a little bit Exquisite this is probably the place for you I'm more of a steak and potato kind of girl.
