Walking inside Grumpy’s is like walking into a museum dedicated to drinking culture in Ketchum. The walls are lined with old beer cans, photos of customers come and gone, past ski run signs, and bumper stickers that say things like “Licked it, liked it.” They serve up a simple lunch menu of burgers and fries with token vegan and gluten-free options—a real sign of progress in a place that has had the same menu for decades and only installed a phone in the last few years (really). 

The $3.50 corndog is the best lunch deal in town, while $7 will buy you a schooner of beer, which is normally around 21 ounces but is a full 32 at Grumpy’s (and the perfect size, once empty, for playing butt darts). Take your massive beer outside on the patio and drink in the sun with friends, and make sure to give a few pets to the regulars’ dogs who wander about. If you’re seated inside, pop a few quarters in the jukebox and play “Sweet Caroline”—you might just have a movie moment as everyone explodes into song.
