The meals and drinks are good, but the overall quality does not reflect the price they charge here.

I think this place is ideal for a nice drunken après-ski binge. Showing up at 7 PM for dinner was not a great idea especially when we got seated at the bar where the après-ski drinking had lingered a little beyond the normal après-ski time. Server was nice enough to recognize and tried to address but it seemed that the party was led by the owner so he had to tread carefully. Once we realized that reseating was not an option, we opted to search out other dinner options. The server was also nice enough not to charge us for the drinks we ordered and drank hoping the party would end. Therefore, I have no clue how the food is or anything else.

Great time at Apres ski, the best in the area. Excellent food and awesome music.

The food was mediocre and the service was terrible. After the wine came and our orders were taken the staff disappeared. We had to finally get the bartender to get someone to give us our check. The place was empty too.

There are plenty of other dining options in this price range.

Overall, it was a nice night out - it was our last night at Vail so I wanted to go somewhere special. The food and drinks were good, but I was a bit disappointed that my 15 year old son sitting at the end of our high top table kept getting bumped into by passersby and waiters...which is not a big deal if at a bar/hangout style restaurant, but this is a higher-priced, nicer venue. The restaurant was also louder than you'd expect. But, our personable server was very attentive and helpful, and everyone enjoyed their meals, which were all plentiful portion sizes.

Good steak. It was significantly overpriced, but it's what I expect in Vail.

Good. It was off-season, so the atmosphere was a little weird. Steaks and Sunday football and there was live music for a while? The salad was mediocre, but the slab of cow was amazing quality and prepared perfectly. It wasn't cheap, but it was delish.

I've been here several times. Something has gone badly wrong here. Steaks were 10-15 dollars more than say Ruth chris. Over $55 for a steak. I had an 8oz filet that was so tough and chewy I couldn't eat it. It should be impossible to screw up a filet... even though it was properly cooked. Our server didn't know much.

According to the staff at Vail Chop House, there is a DJ Friday and Saturday nights in the bar and main dining area. If you are looking for an energetic, party crowd this would be a fun place to go. The food was great and our service was excellent.
