Everything you could want before dinner, after dinner or for your night on the town. Voted as “The Valley’s Best Bar” in 5 different years.
What We Do
Our approach to the hospitality business is clear: We avoid gimmicks and passing trends in favor of a consistent commitment to offer superb food, at a fair price, with friendly, professional service, in a comfortable environment.
While this may be simple to state, it is not so easy to accomplish. We get it right because we are blessed to have a dedicated staff that takes pleasure and great pride in continuing these fine traditions of The Sawtooth Club.
Writing of Ernest Hemingway’s love of Ketchum, the late journalist and author Hunter S. Thompson wrote . . .
… and in the end he came back to Ketchum, never ceasing to wonder why he hadn’t been killed years earlier in the midst of violent action on some other part of the globe. Here, at least he had mountains and a good river below his house; he could live among rugged, non political people and visit, when he chose to, with a few of his famous friends who still came up to Sun Valley. He could sit in The Sawtooth Club and talk with men who felt the same way he did about life, even if they were not so articulate. In this congenial atmosphere he felt he could get away from the pressures of a world gone mad and ‘write truly’ about life as he had in the past.‛
