We visited BaRLee's only because it was next to our hotel and it was the only place open in March. The staff is very friendly. The food was okay. Regular fare, not exceptional.

I stopped in here on a whim one day last summer, and was most favorably impressed with both the foo, beer and service. Now it's one of my favorite stops in Keystone. Try it, you'll like it !!!

I had dinner there the middle of December when most businesses were closed. I appreciated the great service, relaxing atmosphere, and good food.

Visited BaRLee's the first night we arrived in Keystone. Very few places were open as we visited in early October, just after the end of the season. The restaurant has a weird set-up - you eat upstairs but the waitresses have to run downstairs (outside!)...More
