What we hoped would be a relaxing night out with friends turned out to be a total disappointment. We waited about 10 minutes to order drinks and finally received only water about 25 minutes. We finally left after we decided the evening was not going to get any better. Better service was expected from the Ritz.

Buffalo's is a nice place to stop for a beverage or something to eat. Located at the top of chairs 4,5, and 11. We stopped for a social beer while riding the back bowls of Vail. You can get food and drink inside the building as well as out side at the bbq grill. Sitting outside in the sun was... More

Good place for lunch with good burgers and the loving crafted bean burger. It is pricey though and we paid $80 for two adults and two children for burgers and drinks. On a sunny day, eating outside with the view of the mountains is gorgeous.

During a recent day of skiing by myself I had lunch at Buffalos. The buffalo stew, cornbread and blondie brownie really hit the spot. The staff was wonderful, the selection was great and the food quality was spot on. During a great day of skiing the rest and refreshment was very welcomed. Clean and nice staff and you cannot beat...

Nothing special about this place. I wish we ate at the restaurant located at top of the Gondola but Buffalo's was in a convenient location at the top of the mountain. Great views but the food was pricey (as expected).

This place is outstanding, talk about cozy, OMG it's a ten. The Ritz-Carlton at Bachelor 's Gulch have the best kept secret regarding their Bison Chili at Buffalos- I just have to squeal...... I know all the skiers are gonna hate me for divulging this as it makes it difficult for them to get a table coming down off the... More

This is right above Ski Patrol, and we had the chance to watch one of the rescue dogs that was out socializing. It was a good place to grab food when coming out of Blue Sky Basin. The buffalo burgers we had were good; a little pricey, but not overly so for being a specialty meat and at the top... More
