Guest Reviews

Live in the High Country and have heard a lot about Gideons Ridge. Decided to celebrate our 52nd Wedding anniversary by having dinner at the RIDGE. The views For were excellent, The service and food was extraordinary, and made for a special very special occasion!

- Randall Henion

Place was absolutely amazing!! My wife and I enjoyed every second. Very cozy lounge areas. Also being an avid hunter I eat a lot of venison. Their venison was cooked to perfection and had amazing flavor. We have planned to come back and stay a few nights. Could I a suggest getting a N/A beer on the list.

- Caleb Warren

My husband and I had an amazing time at Gideon Ridge. The Executive chef accommodated my very restricted diet and created the most delicious meal of scallops and vegetables that I have ever had in my entire life. The ambience, excellent service, and exceptional food make this a unique and exquisite experience.

- Stefanie Billette

Had a wonderful dinner this evening. After a few apps and the farmers salad along with the Brussel sprouts we finished with the duck and halibut. Everything was absolutely perfect and the service was top shelf. Obviously management has taken the time to properly train the staff because they were very knowledgeable and so helpful. Shout out to Jeremy, great job.

- Philip Vignola

Peaceful, relaxing atmosphere, next level service, wonderful restaurant, and some of the best long range mountain views on the east coast. If you need to unwind, reflect, and get unattached for a bit, this is your place. At least it does all these things and more for me. I would not be making to many plans because, they will surely change after you get here.
