This is our new go-to casual restaurant in Vail. Nested in a corner of the Sonnelnap Hotel, this place has a great theme, great food, and very nice cordial service. Everyone in our party of 6 enjoyed their meals, and left wishing to come back soon. We all loved the truffled tater tots.

The Bully Ranch hosted our rehearsal dinner for our wedding weekend. The customer service was exceptional, the food was delicious, and the mud slides flowed a little too quickly. What a fantastic venue!

We had dinner and enjoyed it very much.... from the atmosphere to the excellent food, to the service. You feel like you are in the Alps of Switzerland or Austria. I would recommend this restaurant.

I always return to this restaurant when I am looking for something casual and easy. I often go when I am unaccompanied and want a friendly bar stool and good conversation. Food has always been great.

Sarah was our waitress and we wanted to keep her for the entire stay of our trip to Vail in the off-season. Food portions are generous, but not cheap. Very tasty and everything tasted wonderfully. My husband had a burger that was $18, but I must say it was worth every penny! I had a tomato soup that was perfectly... More
