My wife and I were in town celebrating our wedding anniversary and we had a wonderful dinner at the Pioneer. Our server was great and the food was fantastic as always.

Simply the best prime rib you'll find anywhere! Very busy, noisy- as usual. Be prepared to wait as they do not take reservations, but it is worth it.

My granddaughter and I had dinner while in Ketchum at Pioneer Saloon on a Saturday evening. We waited about 30 minutes to get a table (slack season). The atmosphere was loud and bar-like. The tablets are squeezed in tight so we sat very close to...More

Great place to eat. We heard that there is usually a long line, but for some reason during Eclipse week, it wasn't bad. It looks like they have a friendly bar. Portions are big and delicious. Service is excellent and friendly. No reservations!

The wood-paneled walls of this popular bar and restaurant are cluttered (in a good way) with memorabilia from days long ago when Ketchum was all about miners, sheep herders and cowboys, not skiers and mountain bikers. Check out the old photos, the antique rifles and...More

The Pioneer has been a part of Ketchum for decades, and is still as popular as ever. Features steaks and lots of meat, but we had a great trout dinner. Lots of food, large bar selections and friendly service. Glad we came early, as it...More

We stopped by to pick up a takeout order. The place was so packed that only one of us could get inside to grab the order. We had called the order in ahead of time so we didn't have to wait outside very long. If...More

For some The Pioneer Saloon is the first restaurant to head to when coming into town and the last place to go before leaving. For others, it's where they met their significant other, perhaps over a bar marg. The Pioneer Saloon, renowned for perfectly aged, tender and flavorful beef, is typical of an earlier Idaho where ore wagons rattled down Main Street and business was done with a handshake and a drink. Natural woods, mounted game, and period firearms help recreate an authentic saloon atmosphere. Duffy and Sheila Witmer have been the sole owners of the Pioneer Saloon since 1986. Today, with their children, Alyson, Chloe and Dillon, they strive to honor a historical classic while bringing new ideas to Ketchum's restaurant scene.
