Description: The award winning Wapiti Colorado Pub celebrates and embodies all things...
The award winning Wapiti Colorado Pub celebrates and embodies all things Colorado. From the amazing views to the beautiful, if unpredictable, weather. From the glorious foods grown, raised and created here to the amazing range of craft and micro brewed beers and wines. From the wonderful people who call Colorado home to the travelers that come to celebrate Colorado with us. The Wapiti believes that food should made fresh using as many local ingredients as they can. They have a wide range of great food from which to choose. Their menu includes juicy burgers, thick cut steaks, pub style sandwiches, crisp salads, succulent game meats, and so much more. They also have the largest all Colorado beer list in the state and feature Grimm Brother’s beer from Loveland.

Best (Elk) Burger of ALL Time

I traveled by myself prior to a conference in Denver and I arrived at the Visitor's Center hungry, thirsty, and in awe of the area's beauty. I asked where I could get the best burger in town and the lovely older woman pointed me to Wapiti. I had one of the Elk burgers (please forgive, I cannot... read more

Great beer selection, good food and nice atmosphere. We visit Estes Park regularly and always plan at least one visit to The Wapiti. I highly recommend.

I've visited several times and love the New England clamp chowder also! I have had the shepherd's pie and BLAT which is a great BLT with Avacado for a nice addition. Definitely a great lunch place. Haven't tried evening hours but looks like they have a decent bar.

I visited Wapiti back in August and now again in February. The food is great and they have a great beer selection. I ordered the fish tacos and they nicely gave me sweet potato fries & slaw as sides instead of beans/rice. Loved it and ate every last bit of food.

Wait staff very helpful and courteous. Food was prompt and very good. They've added cider to their otherwise great beer selection.

We are locals in Estes Park, and continue to go back to the Wapiti, because the food is consistently good, as is the service. We really like the atmosphere since the remodel (after the flood), and enjoy visiting with the wait staff. The portions are generous and there are numerous options on the menu. I think we have tried just... More

We went to Wapiti for lunch on the way into RockyMountain National Park. The food was fantastic. N-My Bacon Cheese Burger was one of the best that I've had. The atmosphere was fun and lively. Great for a family lunch not a romantic getaway. Also the green chili smashed potatoes are ridiculous good!

We received a recommendation from our hotel front desk clerk to check out this restaurant. We were pleased with our meal. Try the Colorado Nachos. I've never had anything like that, and it was good. Also the service was really good. We had a very nice gentleman server who was very attentive and funny. I don't remember his name. He... More
