It is pricey but the food is good and the wait staff is amazing! Wish I could remember our waitresses name. She was so kind and loved the quick service. Made us feel at home after we had a less than desirable experience at the bar downstairs from this place.

We had read reviews on here and were laughing so hard by the responses the manager made to the negative reviews we just had to come check this place out. So glad we did. Service was awesome. Food was delicious, salad, bread, steaks (filet and NY strip) and baked potatoes. We also had a PB oreo dessert - yummy!!! The... More

On a recent visit to Estes Park we were told about this place by another couple that was staying at the same B&B. They said the food was good for a reasonable price. The restaurant parking lot is behind the main street in Estes but easy to find. It is located above The Wheel Bar so yo have to walk... More

Great filet and swordfish, great service! You must have reservations - it is a small and intimate place! Our favorite thus far!

We went to Orlando’s on the strength of positive Tripadvisor reviews, but were disappointed. I ordered a rib eye steak, with baked potato and steamed brocolli. My wife ordered filet mignon with shrimp, baked potato and brocolli. We both had dinner salads, which were served with very good home baked bread, so far, so good. However, my steak was not... More

Our steaks are seared only in clarified butter. It seems that we have a population that is used to spices being added to their steaks before cooking. Meat is meat. It comes to us from a hugely reputable cattle ranch. Now, I have to wonder how many hours you spent upset about that apple ring. It is something, even stated... More

This is our 2nd year in Estes Co and once again we visited Orlando's steak house. Once again we were not disappointed. We had the steak and lobster and is was to melt in your mouth to die for good. We had the pleasure of meeting chef Tandy. This is a small but quaint restaurant and the service is excellent!... More

We've been coming to Estes Park for years and didn't know about Orlando's. A little hard to find because it's upstairs from a bar, the restaraunt is classy and the food very good.

Our family was in town for a family wedding. We had dinner at Orlando's the evening prior to the event. The food was good, although the scallops were very salty.Nice experience but not extremely memorable. We would return again.

We have been to all steak houses in Estes but thought we'd try Orlando's as it was rated above well. Do not waste your time. They had a limited NYE menu and couldn't master it. We ordered med-rare filet mignon steaks but they were rare and tasteless and served with bearnaise on the side. The bearnaise sauce had dill in... More

Heatherbrownstone, Manager at Orlando's Steakhouse, responded to this review

I apologize for your disappointment with your experience at Orlando's. It is hard to answer your review as it is a slam on pretty much everything, and touting another steakhouse, at that. I was busing tables that night, as a manager and I do not remember anyone with such complaints. In fact, we were complimented on dinners all night long.... More

Good steak, seafood and service (overall a four), but not up to the high ratings and prices. One of our guests sent back their meal to be cooked to the original order, and it came back burned. Unfortunately, this is not the way to impress your friends. If your looking for the best steak in town and a wonderful atmosphere,... More
