Overpriced for the quality and ambiance. Staff appeared to be disorganized and more concerned about distributing customers equally between the wait staff than the customers. We were told there were no available booths. As we waled to our table the host asked the next customer if they wanted a booth.

The service was not very good. First visit this summer to a place that used to be good. Out of Elk burgers and out of Fat Tire beer. A very average place.

Loved this place. I had a Yak burger which was totally awesome! Our waiter was very friendly and even helped us find a place to watch the upcoming Saints game.

Indoor and outdoor dining, with a wide number of exotic meats on the menu, including yak, emu, elk, and bison. We got the buffalo meatloaf. Don't bother, it was nothing special. (Nothing bad, mind you, just rather plain.) We split that and loved the mashed sweet potato served as the side. We then split a yak burger. Moist, tasty, but... More

On the Main Street of this tourist resort, this is a surprisingly large Restaurant and was very busy when we visited Wednesday night. I had the buffalo meatloaf with garlic mash, which was good. Great choice of beers (FatTire was my favourite) at very reasonable prices. Portions were generous. Good atmosphere. Would recommend

I reached out to TripAdvisor members on the local Estes Park forum when we were tired of my cooking on our week's vacation to Estes Park and the Rocky Mountain National Park. At first I thought we were going to have lunch, so I asked for input about good burgers in the area. The Grubsteak Restaurant was recommended. Then the... More

While visiting family in Colorado, we found this delightful restaurant in Estes Park. It serves a wonderful menu of wild game, Buffalo, Elk, Beef and Yak. The atmosphere is wonderful and the staff are very courteous. My first time to try Yak and it was delightful.
