Our group of five lady friends was looking for an upscale restaurant - not an easy task in the beautiful, well located, but laid back town of Estes Park. Waterfront fit the bill. The decor is rustic, but lovely and warm. The menu varied with upscale items with a twist i.e. halibut with curry sauce (yummy) and salmon with fava... More

No one eats there and that's a sign to stay away. Servers can't be found to seat guests or serve them.

We walked around Estes Park lake and then stopped in for lunch. The bison burger was fabulous and the sweet potato fries were wonderful. Jimmy was an excellent server.

Beautiful setting but very disappointing. We ordered food in the bar and after 45 min.it had still not arrived. When we asked the bartender about it he said he had checked with the kitchen but was sorry he didn't know when it would be ready. Then he asked if we just wanted to leave. So we did. Very hungry and... More

Did something change here? Two years ago, we thought it was really good. This time, it seemed like the prices were much higher and the food wasn't as good. I had chicken and it reminded me of the food you get on a cruise ship- looks fancy but is just okay. Service was okay.

The setting is excellent, (we took a walk along the lake while waiting for our reservation time to come up), the service was Excellent, the food was Excellent. Ordered appetizers as we were not that hungry, the spinach and artichoke dip was great, they let me taste two different wines.

My son and I are locals, decided on a last-minute dinner out, had not been here since it was the Lakeshore Lodge. We were seated quickly with that great view of Lake Estes and the mountains. Can't remember now exactly what we had [this was 9 days ago] - I think mine was just an appetizer, which was delicious and... More
