Great experience! We were sat immediately and had great service for the entire meal. Food was great (highly recommend the truffle tots) and menu choices were great as well. We will definitely be back here when visiting Vail again. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

We were seated by the back room where an event was being held. They were very noisy and drunk. No masks and no social distancing.
The food and service was really good.

Went here for a celebratory dinner with my best friend. They sat us out on a covered patio at what felt like a picnic table; definitely not the ambiance we hoped for, especially since the dining room looked so charming.
The service took a long time to the point where we’d been seated for twenty minutes before our drink order was taken.
Overall the experience was good and the food and drinks were decent, but I wish I’d been given the option to choose to sit in the actual dining room. I wouldn’t book this restaurant again without that option.

Food was great! We ordered a bunch of apps to share and my niece couldn’t decide on the kids menu so a couple of those items as well! But service took a while. Our waitress did have another large table that was seated after us, but I think ended up leaving before us. Maybe someone should of helped her. My nieces loved the food, we had a great time. Guess I should value the extra time with my precious girls. And should appreciate the fact we weren’t rushed. Was a great way to spend New Years Day! We had the spinach artichoke dip, truffle tots, hummus, tomato soup, kids chicken tenders and macaroni and cheese. We were looking at the s’mores cake but had to get to someone’s house. Might take my nephews this Friday night. Since we live locally, I think it’s a great spot for people of all ages!

Nice restaurant. The burger I had was not as ordered (undercooked). The fries were good. Service was very good. I don't intend to go back anytime soon as I felt disappointed in the meal.

Even though it was crowded and we had to wait 20 minutes past our reservation time, everything was great. We were seated in a quiet place by huge windows. Service was great and everyone’s order was delicious.

The ride to get there was very long for what it is. We were expecting a grand Buffett with great entertainment, but it was literally a bowl of chili, vegetables, chicken, beef, salad and bread. I understand that it’s Covid time, but there could have been more food. For the price I paid it was not worth it. The wagon ride was pretty lame too, it was short and it was a circle - no animals to be seen anywhere. Totally overpriced

Always a solid burger to be had at Bully Ranch. The servers are as kind as can be and kudos to their ability to accommodate as many parties (COVID safe!) as possible. Great place to take the family and friends but MAKE RESERVATIONS!!

Their signature item chicken pot pie was not what we used to in the past. The crust was gone and replaced by puffed pastry. Very few vegetables and limited chicken. The sauce was like out of Campbells soup. For the price, they need to improve this dish.

Atmosphere is wonderful, food is good not great. My steak was well prepared but tough, the fajitas were delicious and the fish tacos were good. Prices were reasonable for Vail. Overall it's a great place for a casual friendly meal but don't expect gourmet.

Very delicious! I had the bully ranch fried chicken (buttermilk and corn flake batter) without the bun, and with a side of mashed potatoes instead. It was so good! I also loved the fresh baked little olive dinner rolls. We come here a lot. The patio seating and indoor seating are both lovely

Ate a late lunch here with friends after a zip lining adventure. Food was awesome & wine list by the glass was great! We sat on the patio with a view of some beautiful aspens with lots of gold color. We’ll definitely eat here again on our next trip to Vail. The burgers are outstanding although a bit pricey & the service was excellent.
