Trail Creek Cabin

51 Trail Creek Rd
Sun Valley, 83353
Reviews:
The ambiance is wonderful, but the food just ok. We are here for the sleigh ride season, and really enjoyed the horses and cowboys. Our waitress was so friendly and helpful, and it was really enjoyable talking to her. However the food was just okay. But I ordered a drink that arrived in a glass boot, and pretty soon didn't care about the quality of the food so much.
We are locals and love the ambiance and history of Trail Creek Cabin. We have dined here for over 25 years and have come to realize you will have a great experience most of the time and every once in a while, there will be a train wreck. Unfortunately, the latest train wreck occurred while some of our family was visiting. We have experienced three great meals this summer (good food, good service, etc.) but the train finally went off the tracks again. We will continue to return to Trail Creek Cabin as we do love it but we do so knowing full well there is more than a 20% chance of another bad experience.
We are visiting family in Sun Valley and on Christmas Day Night we took the sleigh to the Trail Creek Cabin. There was 14 in our party and we mostly took up one sleigh. The ride was magical. It made me feel like I was in a Christmas special. The snow covered trees and the friendly sleigh drivers made for a wonderful ride. The wait staff at the Cabin were terrific and the food was great. A perfect end to Christmas Day.

Gretchen’s

Sun Valley Lodge,1 Sun Valley Rd
Sun Valley, 83353
Reviews:
Friends of the bride hosted a luncheon at Gretchen's at the Sun Valley Lodge; it was bad timing that this outdoor luncheon on the terrace coincided with one of the hottest days of the week (104 degrees). We were shaded, but we - along with the butter on the tables - were melting. It's a beautiful setting with nicely set tables overlooking the year-round ice skating rink. Gretchen's roped off an area for our lunch which was nice to have a few tables close together so we could chat and mingle. The lunch was a buffet, and the buffet items were all so tempting. I'm sure my parents would be ashamed, but I didn't even make it to the carving station. There were hot food items from roasted chicken to salmon to red meat on the carving station to roasted potatoes and wild rice, and there were also lots of other great cold items like fresh fruit and grilled vegetables. The waitress asked us if we wanted glasses of champagne which we all ordered, but they never arrived. Boo.
We stayed at the lodge and were looking forward to eating at Gretchen's because of the trout. The menu offered reasonable prices and a good selection of both meat, fowl and fish. We both ordered caesar salad and the trout. The romaine lettuce was brown. We sent it back and did get a better dish. The trout was overcooked and so was the spinach and broccolli - rather mushy. The undeterminable brown sauce under the fish was rather salty and almost jellied ? We ordered Elk Cove 2008 Pinot Noir which went well with the fish. Actually the bread, butter and wine were the high point of dinner. The service was good though.
Terrible service and mistakes were made with our orders repeatedly. Food was worse than mediocre. We won't go again and we are staying in the Lodge! The walk into Ketchum is the only way to go for food.

Bald Mountain Pizza

Sun Valley Village,1 Sun Valley Rd
Sun Valley, 83353
Reviews:
12 of us had pizzas, salads, and pastas. The pizzas were delicious And the salads looked fresh, large, and yummy! The one person who had spaghetti and meatballs said it was just alright. We ate outside and when it started to rain the staff was quick to make sure we and our possessions were all covered. The waitresses were all young attentive sweet girls. I would return! (The sprite was watered down, but other than that it was a great casual meal.
The wait was long & they were short staffed & even forgot to serve us after seating ...but luckily the pizza was delicious that's what saved the dinner. We ordered a pizza that had potatoes on it & it was super delicious.
Good pizza fast service. Fresh ingredients, like everywhere else in Sun Valley.

The Roundhouse

Sun Valley Resort - Midway Up Bald Mountain,1 Sun Valley Rd
Sun Valley, 83353
Reviews:
Just had lunch here on the deck with my family and I was so pleased with everything! I have been to the roundhouse many many times during both winter and summer seasons over the past few years and I have to say that so far this has been the best summer experience for me. The vibe was great, the food was great, and the service was wonderful. The staff were all happy and helpful and everything seemed to flow. The deck was packed with families and hikers, good tunes, and lots of happy faces. Good job on this one SV mountain food peeps. It's workin!
Excellent view, pretty good service although the ordering process happens at the front counter with a limited 10 items on the menu. Good was not that great: Mediterranean chop - I ordered this. Probably the worst salad I've ever eaten at a restaurant. Chicken had no flavor, the veggies in the salad were sparse and it came out without dressing. Buffalo burger - this was good. My husband ordered it. The horseradish sauce and the party were a great combo. I'd come for the view. Once you're up here there really are no other options though. Salmon salad looked amazing
Took my mom up there for lunch during her first visit to Sun Valley. The ordering at the "hostess stand" is odd, and the hostess (who you pay ahead of your meal) definitely rushed us and wasn't pleasant. She seemed to sigh with impatience as we selected our beverages--since we didn't know the protocol for the up-front order-and-pay system. I could see how this system could make sense in winter, but I suggest they change it up for summer. Service was just okay. One bus-person in particular stood out. He was super-friendly, and then we later saw him at the Main St. Market, presumably working his second job! Kudos. We tipped at the table for him. Food was passable, but definitely NOT worth the Sun Valley price tag. Still, a great setting, despite the smoky haze from nearby wildfires.

The Ram

Sun Valley,1 Sun Valley Rd
Sun Valley, 83353
Reviews:
The Ram offers fine dining with prices commensurate. The food and service are of respectable quality. But what I found highly disagreeable, almost insulting, was their wine list. It is dominated with higher-end fine bottlings with prices to match. Many, if not most of the offerings are over $100 and extend to as much as $220. When offerings wines of this quality and expense, the diner should reasonably expect to be told the vintage year of offered bottling. But Ram's wine list does no such thing. This practice one expects in budget eateries. But it is incomprehensible to me that a supposedly fine dining restaurant would not tell you up front the vintage of $200 wine. Ram offers even more exclusive and expensive wines ($500+) in a separate reserve listing that does specify vintage. But no such information is provided on their regular wine list. Our server tried to explain that they "don't know what the year of the wines are that are shipped to them". It would seem that someone should be taking inventory. And while the server was more than willing to check on individual bottles for the vintage, sending someone to investigate the production year of even 2 or 3 bottles is a major inconvenience to a diner and waste of time for both the server and the dining party. And even then, it makes the wine selection process problematic. This omission undermines the professional integrity of a restaurant purporting to offer fine dining. I left the meal with a sense of disappointment. The Sun Valley resort has made great strides in improving it food service in recent years. This tells me they still have a ways to go.
Loved the food, excellent service and the peaches and cream were AMAZING! Nice tunes on the piano.
The Ram offers reasonably good Austrian / American cuisine in a pleasant ambience that includes outdoor terrace seating in warm weather and a pianist playing showtunes. So why do I give it just one star? The service was excruciatingly slow--1 hour and 50 minutes to get our entrees. It was so slow that the ancillary staff began to clear our silverware and bread plates, thinking that we had finished our meal. Our waitperson's excuse was that the kitchen was backed up because of a large party having dinner. Guess what--that's not our problem, particularly in view of how pricey this place is. At the very least they should have offered us a break on the price of the wine, or a complimentary dessert.
