At the end of the day, kick up your ski boots at Kickapoo Tavern. Steps away from the gondola, this low-key tavern offers plenty of local microbrews and a creative take on the typical bar food. Perfect for adults and kids alike with inspired staples and plenty of options for children. There’s a reason it’s a Keystone staple!
For an authentic steakhouse experience, The Keystone Ranch pays homage to the ranchers and farmers who settled the area. Utilizing the finest quality meat, sustainable practices and locally sourced products, the Ranch is distinctively Colorado. The menu reflects the Ranch’s rustic charm with items such as Ranch Kettle Soup and South Dakota Buffalo Tartare, but has put a creative twist on dinner as well with Sumac Scented Duck Breast and Pomegranate Glazed Rosen Farms Lamb Chops. Of course, the fresh cuts of steak are what the Ranch is really known for – Imperial Ranch Wagyu N.Y. Strip is top of the menu, followed by an anything but standard Rib Eye, Porterhouse and FIlet Mignon. The menu also features an 18 hour Beef Short Rib Confit - served with ancho prickly pear BBQ sauce. Finish the evening with the Ranch’s Signature Grand Marnier Souffle.
