Great big salad

We enjoyed the big salads. The trout and salmon were very good, too. Casual and pleasant. Friendly service.

Looks like most reviews are good and I agree. I don't understand the recent poor reviews. First night we came in for the trout from a recommendation. We were not disappointing. I do agree that is wasn't grilled as expected but incredibly fresh and very good. Doesn't need and shouldn't be seasoned other than some lemon, salt and pepper. We... More

Went here after a nice 5 mile hike in RMNP. Hub had the trout and I the French dip. The trout was under seasoned for my taste but my Hub liked it. French dip was tasty. Everything hit the spot. Our waiter was a bit overly attentive, but some folks might like that. We'd eat here again if we're in... More

Excellent fish dishes to comfortable prices. The service was excellent and, yes, we are very pleased with everything. The atmosphere perhaps is not the romantic but the food is an overwhelming factor.

Most of the clientele were over 60 (nothing wrong with that!), but if you have small children stay away! We have a VERY well behaved 9month old who was making regular baby noises (not crying) and we got some nasty looks. Food was fairly good, service was mediocre, decent prices, but stay away if you have kids! Owners seemed nice.

We enjoyed lunch here while staying at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn next door. The service was very good, and the menu included some good gluten-free options!

Have been there several times. We keep going back because we love the food and atmosphere. Learned of this after visiting a restaurant in Bldr years ago and the daughter of the owners was working while attending the university. It has maintained the same great quality and atmosphere year after year. We think they own a restaurant in AZ too.

Besides the deplorable service, for example, not clearing appetizer plates, the server never making eye contact, the Sundeck has redefined the meaning of "grilled." They are known for their fresh lake trout. Yes, it was fresh. Here's how it was prepared: lightly breaded, cooked on a flattop with a cover. It tasted poached without any seasoning. Not your father's grilling,... More

We had pasta and fried chicken. Both were good. Owner/manager came by and checked if we were happy. (nice touch). Service was just right, efficient but not obtrusive. Have more expensive entrees like trout, steak, etc. that looked great as well as wine and beer, but we were there early evening and heading back into RMNP so what we had... More

My husband and I visited Estes park for our honeymoon and were looking for a nice, but not too fancy, restaurant for our last night. We paid over $50 for poor service and mediocre food. We were seated very quickly but then had to wait for almost 15 minutes for our waiter to take our order. They were not busy... More
