A Ketchum classic on Main Street, just 10 minute walk from the townhome. Reservations aren't accepted, but you won't mind enjoying the local color in the rustic and vibrant ambience of the bar while you wait to be seated. And the food....yum! Locally caught rainbow trout, delicious steaks in a variety of cuts and sizes, veggies and those Famous Idaho Potatoes.

Prime rib and an Idaho potato but I like most everything on the menu. It's fun to look at all of the artwork throughout the restaurant. It is geared to hunters, in my opinion, and I always see something new every time I go.

Eat at the bar for a locals' experience, or go in around 7:30-8 pm to avoid the crush! This is a must visit. Our Aunt Marg is on a photo on the wall as "Miss Hailey" in a bathing suit competition! Ride the Elkhorn Red city bus for drop off right in front of the"Pio" and back home again to avoid the pesky SVPD looking for late night party people.

The Pioneer Saloon is a local landmark. This is the perfect place for a thick steak or slice of Prime Rib. Get here early as they don't take reservations and it fills up fast!

The steak here was excellent. Service was good and friendly, and they treated our table like we were locals. I'll definitely eat here again.

This place has the best beef ribs, but you need to get there early to get 'em. You can't go wrong with a steak.

If you come to Sun Valley, you have to visit the "Pio". It's unique decor and atmosphere it a must for all.

A must! One of the icons of Sun Valley. Great for cocktails and dinner. Great steaks and sea food. Mountain atmosphere. Come in your ski clothes or jeans. They don't take reservations. Come early during high season and belly up to the bar.

The Pioneer Saloon is a Ketchum Institution of Libations and Fantastic Food. Prime rib bigger than your plate and always a warm welcome!

The Pioneer Saloon has been a landmark bar and grill for over 45 years. The decor has a distinct Western flair. The service is fast and professional, however, during high season you may have to wait for a table. Steak, chops, fish, salads are featured and the bar is a local handout.

Excellent food for years and years. No dress up, come as you are. Typical "Old West". Great steaks. No reservations. Rub elbows with the crowd where it is commong to spot celebreties, who appreciate being accepted as one of the crowd. Everybody visiting Ketchum must eat at the Pioneer Saloon, as almost all do.

A favorite with locals and visitors alike, a recent remodel has the various trophy deer and elk mounts, and taxidermied critters looking their best in years.
