    Bully Ranch is good casual dining in Vail. Staff & ambience were lovely. Only criticism, Caesar salad was 2-3 full romaine lettuce heads, ends included, uncut. Dressing drizzled on top, with a Parmesan toast on side… so make your own Caesar salad basically for Vail prices. Presentation is not everything… really. It’s a Caesar salad, please just make the Caesar salad and then serve it. Otherwise nice casual dinner place.

    Our table was over by the pizza oven so it was extremely hot . We asked if we could switch our table and they had nothing else available. The server put in the wrong appetizer , we corrected her however she never took it off of our bill. The drinks that we ordered sat on the counter for 10 mintutes before she brought them to our table . Also, the ice crean sundaes sat on the counter for a very long time and we had to ask another server to bring them to us. Service was horrible.

    Service was very slow. Thank goodness we didn’t order appetizers or we’d still be there. I ordered the truffle Mac and cheese - it was cheesy - it was very oily - tasteless. My dinner companion ordered a burger that he said was just “ok.” The table next to us gave up and declined their entree because it took so long (they ordered appetizers). The restaurant wasn’t that crowded. It was $$$$ for sub par food and service

    The food was amazingly good. We tried the oxtail and carro soup which was simply delicious with a rich herbaceous base. We also tried the truffle tots which were super crispy and probably the best tater tot ever! Also had the burger, bolognese and chicken wings. All were fantastic. We thoroughly enjoyed our meal there and regret some of the higher priced restaurants we tried during our stay.

    We love the Bully Ranch. The food is great, the prices are reasonable for Vail and the service is friendly and fast. We ate their twice during our vacation. They also have a good kids menu. The Bully Ranch has a wonderful western ambiance with antiques on the wall. We are planning another vacation Vail next year and we will definitely be back.

    We had a 6:15 reservation, but did not get seated til 7pm. The servers were nice, but spread thin. We had to ask several times for things before they were brought to us. We’ve been going to Bully Ranch for years prior to to Covid, yet was very disappointed with the service this time.
