Ski Tip Lodge Ratings and Reviews
We had such an amazing experience. There is so much history and charm in this building. The meal was exceptional. We even had our picky husbands trying new things and enjoying them. It was a great setting for a much needed adult get-together for our family. It is not a budget dinner so save it for a special occasion! The service team was amazing. We just had the best evening ever and are still talking about it!
We have come to expect only the best from STL--and once again the STL crew performed with panache and aplomb built upon a foundation of great food presented to provide a wonderful multi-sensory gastronomic experience. A blue crab salad surrounded by crab bisque was followed by a watercress salad bordered by carrot butter on one side and a contrasting spicy peanut butter on the other side--I never would have come up with that combination, but it worked very well. The prosciutto wrapped pork tenderloin was a melt in your mouth treat. And smoked chocolate chips embedded in vanilla ice cream as a part of the Keystone S'More were the finishing touches. A "must-do" for any STL diner is to have Megan provide a description of your wine selections for the evening. An even better treat is to enjoy her wine-pairings which will open your eyes (and palette) to options that you may not have previously encountered. You can tell that all of the staff enjoy "performing" and relish the opportunity to provide each diner with a dining experience to remember. We love this place.
We have been to ski tip many times as we are locals. We came to celebrate 2 birthdays. They were notified we were there for 2 special occasions ahead of time but never acknowledged it through our meal. My husband and daughter had the strip steak, it was chewy and overdone. My other daughter had lamb chops, 2 small chops, very little meat, too fatty. Creme Brûlée for dessert was like water. You may ask what they said when we told them, well we would have but not one ever asked "how is everything." Totally disappointed. We won't go back and will stop recommending it to our visitors. We don't know what has happened to this spot that use to be a gem.
We love the atmosphere at Ski Tip Lodge. Perhaps our expectations were too high but after the delicious soup, we all agreed that the remainder of our dinner was good but definitely not great. For the price, the portions are very small. The presentation was very nice. We'll probably try something else next time.
We have been to Ski Tip many times and it never loses its charm and attraction . The food is always exceptional and the wine pairing, with the help of the sommelier, wrapped up by the move to the charming fireplace for dessert, keeps us coming back for a special experience every single time.
This was an outstanding experience. Situated in an old historic building, the dining rooms retained the charm of the old stagecoach inn, it once was. The set menu offerings were limited, but with very interesting choices. The menu changes weekly. The sommeliers (there were two) were both very knowledgeable and had interesting information about many of the wine choices. The wine list has over 600 choices. Throughout the evening, the staff was attentive and showed a sincere interest in our experience. The set menu includes appetizer, soup or salad, main course and dessert, which was served in two adjacent rooms, with large fireplaces. Food was outstanding, choices included beef, fowl, pork, wild game and seafood.
You cannot go wrong with a trip to the Ski Tip Lodge.
This is truly a hidden gem! The ambiance was so relaxing and romantic. It gave such a homey and cozy feeling. The food was deeelicious! I loved that we could have our dessert by the fireplace. The servers were so nice and helpful with everything. It was an overall very welcoming and nice experience.
Absolutely superb, as always. We dine here several times a year for special occasions. Never have been disappointed, summer or winter. The somelier Curtis, this particular evening, Megan other evenings, are an absolute pleasure, and always add so much to the meal.
Wow!!! What an amazing evening
We were spoiled from start to finish
The food was spectacular!!!
Highly recommend the wine pairing with the knowledgeable Megan- she bought the wines to life
Our waiter James was engaging & attentive
This was a spectacular evening & I would highly recommend going to ski Tip- we finished our evening by the fireplace with cheese & a reinvented s'mores plus dessert wine.
Marcie, the Sommelier was outstanding; she paired each course with an excellent wine and provided tastes first just to make sure. The rest of the service is not quite up to her standard but did not interfere with a fine meal.
The savory food was outstanding with excruciating attention to detail. For e.g. cider poached cranberries as an accompaniment to the duck that were an exceptional touch. I had never head almond milk as a base for soup but it nicely complemented the yam soup in a way that most sweet potato soups need without overpowering it. Clearly a result of experimentation by the chef that paid off.
The only disappointment was a bizarre take on key lime pie for dessert. It was kind of a deconstructed frozen dish that completely missed.
Great food and wine list. Would definitely recommend for a special occasion.
Limited menu choice but everything was very unique and good. Very small
dining area and you need to make reservations quite a bit in advance. A nice
touch is having desert in one of their sitting rooms. I highly recommend.
Low ceilings, as it should be in a building from the 1800's. From the greeting at the door by the hostess, the service was impeccable. Our waiter Lance was extremely knowledgeable about every course and every ingredient. I listened to the sommelier school another table, who thought themselves quiet expert, but I think they learned something knew on this visit.
The head chef, Andrew, came out to check on us. We complemented him on his creativity and attention to detail. He was appreciative and humble. He could work anywhere in the country if he choose to. What a great experience.
Dined here after a hard day of skiing. Their menu is small, with a choice of fowl, fish, wild game, or a prime cut of beef for dinner. Served with appetizer, side dish, and dessert. Wine available by the glass for $10-$15, by the bottle for $35-$225.
I had elk tenderloin, which was fantastic.
The Ski Tip ,as always, was great in every way. Had three different apps,salad, and entrees and every one was delicious, lamb steak, scallops & CO local bass and beef short ribs. Three different deserts were each very special. New chef this season greeted us at desert in the old fireplace room. Overall this is special restaurant, not only in the high Rockies, but in the world .
We went here for Valentine's Day. Excellent ambience, excellent food and excellent service. Overall a very relaxing and enjoying experience. You start in the lounge/bar area for cocktails, both rooms are beautiful with large fireplaces, you then go to the dining room for dinner, and return to the lounge/bar for desert. Overall and amazing experience.
The only thing about this place was that we were charged a "service fee" of $50, I asked what the charge was for he really didn't know. It was a group of 6 so I'm sure it was a Gratuity, which I know where I work, it's technically gratuity. I hope this charge is for the Sommelier which was very knowledgeable and since we were not wine people she chose really good wines for us. She was amazing and does not disappoint, the food is amazing as well!! Will go back, but I'll have to ask about this "service charge." Our bill was $735 for 6... not bad for a 4 course meal with 3 bottles of wine, but I think we would have tipped more if we knew where this service charge was going.
Wonderful dining experience. One of the best meals my wife and I have had. And that includes Paris and Brussels. Service was perfect. Great place for any special occasion. Original building dates back to the late 1800's. Main part was built in 1946 and has operated continuously since then.
Ski Tip is one of the best restaurants in America and my favorite. They continue to put out a beautifully served meal at a pace set by the guest which is appreciated. Dessert by the fire is my favorite part. I also like their staying with what they do se well and not being distracted by the trends too many restaurant fall into today. Their food is top quality without worrying about being ethnic, free of politically incorrect items or other nonsense that has ruined some competitors. Ski Tip serves top quality well prepared food at an affordable price.
We hope Ski Tip continues doing what they do so well.
Great ambience in this 100-yr old lodge, with wooden ceiling beams almost touching your head and two crackling fireplaces, 5 stars. The service is great too, very friendly and attentive, 5 stars. The view from windows to the woods is charming, 5 stars. The food is very creative and portions are small; I give food only 3 stars because I love American, Italian, Mediterranean food, but food here is none of those; it was just not tasty to me. The dinner price was $78, and I would have loved my dinner better at Ruby Tuesday for just $17.99. So, I would recommend this place for ambiance, service, quietness, and charming view to the woods.
