This place was lovely, and WILL BE MISSED. Indoor area was beautiful and quaint, patio was especially lovely. Parking was often a problematic challenge, wish the town offered more easy access free parking!!! But places like this made the visit worthwhile. Gamekeeper's closing is TRULY A LOSS to our town.

I went to this place as it had good reviews. How come there could be good reviews? That's a complete mystery. Food is really not good and clearly not worth the price. The service is terrible.

Quaint atmosphere with interesting menu. Various different dining areas decorated in the outdoor game themes. The food is average with a good presentation. Some of our party enjoyed the elk I chose the salmon which was average. The main issue being the acoustics, with low ceilings there is no where for the sound to go. It is loud and nearly... More

Gamekeeper's Tavern gets better each time we visit. Dinner there is always a wonderful experience. I enjoyed the braised pork shank, very, very good. The service was outstanding and the prices were quite resonable. We wil be returning soon.

We have been frequenting Gamekeepers for years. Its excellent menu offers a variety of mainstays as well as seasonable changes, servers are always friendly and professional, and its outdoor summer patio and indoor fall-winter fireplace tables are popular. It is extremely convenient for CVLT pre-show and post-show gatherings and has a cozy Happy Hour bar as well.

Thanks for your feedback. We always appreciate guest's viewpoint both positive and yes even sometimes negative. Our new fall menu is just a week old and our staff has undergone extensive training on the menu and wine list. So far a great reception. More

Gamekeepers is a long time local favorite, another establishment we have enjoyed many times over the years. It tends to have some more exotic menu options, including bison burgers, sometimes ostrich or elk. It also has more traditional options. Food, service and value very good. There are several nice dining areas in the 1 1/2 story building, including a couple... More
