“All right food, but Thomas the waiter was way too slow...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 June 2014

Went to Bully Ranch during 2014 Go Pro Mountain Games. Took a while for our server, Thomas, to get to us even though there were only 4 other tables (who were all eating already). Thomas was training a younger waitress, and I noticed that he seemed to be putting his hands on her a lot (touching shoulders to guide her this or that way). I don't know if the young lady was comfy with this or not, but Thomas...be careful....you could easily have a sexual harrassment case on you.

Thomas also took his sweet old time getting my husband a water refill...took him about 4 passes by us and about 15 mins even though all his tables were not needing his attention.

Thomas took the cake when we paid, which took about 20 mins for him to see that we were ready to go. The bill was $36.40. My husband flipped him a $100. Thomas did the change without going to the register, and proceeded to give us $40.00 in change. There is no way that we were giving him that much of a tip. So he went to the register, got the change and counted it out to the hubby and asked are we good. No Thomas, you shorted us a dime. So he flipped a quarter to my husband. What??? If he keeps making change like this, the management might want to keep an eye on this waiter, as not making the correct change could equal incorrect tills...which is basically stealing.

Overall, ok food, but ask for another waiter than Thomas.

“Best find in Vail”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 May 2014

This was our second visit to this restaurant and it lived up to our expectations again. Greeted by friendly staff - wonderful ambiance - efficient but no intrusive service - great food and drink selection. Our lunch experience was so good that we visited again next day for our evening meal. I would really recommend that you seek this place out when in Vail it's a real gem.

“Great Last Night”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014 via mobile

We looked hard into our options for our last night in Colorado. The steaks (Flank, especially, and the NY Strip) were cooked to order. Ceasar salad was delish and came with fresh anchovies.The Tots were good (we were curious about all these foods in Truffle oil...).

The service was wonderful and though people say its great for families, we did see a lot of kids, but they were not a distraction. The wine list was huge and i liked that i could get a 1/2 bottle for a reasonable price. We were curious about the 80's music soundtrack, but every place needs their quirk, i guess.
