Kneadery and The Pioneer Saloon

The Kneadery and the The Pioneer Saloon, both owned by the Witmer family are Ketchum institutions and are loved by locals and tourists alike.  It wouldn’t be unusual for someone to have breakfast or lunch at The Kneadery and then head to the The Pioneer for dinner.

For many, The Pioneer Saloon is the first restaurant to head to for dinner when coming into town and the last place to go before leaving.  Part bar, part museum, all Rocky Mountain classic.  Antique bullet boards compete for space on the walls with mounted game, period firearms, and display boxes containing memorabilia from Ernest Hemingway’s time in Sun Valley.  On any given night, you can find a cross-section of Sun Valley sitting in the Pioneer’s lively bar, with local carpenters and teachers rubbing elbows with visiting movie stars and business people.  Renowned for perfectly aged, tender and flavorful beef, “The Pio” is typical of an earlier Idaho where ore wagons rattled down Main Street and business was done with a handshake and a drink.  As the saying goes, “If you haven’t been to The Pioneer Saloon, you haven’t been to Ketchum.”  

Hearty Steaks & Prime Rib. Fresh Seafood. Meaty Ribs. Hard Liquor. Wine and Beer.

The Kneadery is the perfect complement to The Pioneer dinner experience.  Established in 1974, The Kneadery combines wholesome fresh food with a rustic Idaho atmosphere. Whether you’re headed out for a day of hiking, or spent the morning skiing the slopes, you’ll want to fuel up with a wholesome nutritious meal at The Kneadery.

All meals start with the freshest ingredients — locally baked organic breads, farm fresh, cage-free eggs, seasonal fruit and top quality meats. From the to-die-for eggs benedict and huge omelets and pancakes, to the fresh salads and burgers, there's something for everyone.  Great food is just the beginning at The Kneadery.  Service with a smile and the authentic décor complete the package. Come see why The Kneadery was voted #1 for Breakfast in Best of the Valley.  Beer and Wine served.
