Regarding Donna M...I and most of Estes will agree on your opinion of Shannon. I want you to know that she is not an owner just a hostess that gets away with murder! Scott the owner is a wonderful neighbor and has a great restaurant. If he wasn't our neighbor we would never go there simply because of the way... More

The food was delicious and they had a nice variety of specialty drinks. The house merlot was tasty and decently priced.

Went to this restaurant for dinner with a gang and it was perfect from the professional brown haired hostess, the happy knowledgeable server and even the on the spot bus service. We all loved our food (especially the Bierstadt Alfredo) I decided to take some friends back and experienced a totally different feeling the moment we entered the door. I... More

When we were there in November, 2014 we were saddened to see how the restaurant has declined. My wife had the pot roast and while the portions were quite generous she said the meat was not that tasty. I had the country fried state which again was a generous portion but the meat was tough and was stringy. The restaurant... More

We enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving dinner at the Other Side. The selection was awesome and everything was enjoyable. I would recommend it for next year's holiday feast.

We had a great experience at The Other Side while in town for a wedding in late November. It was a great choice during the off season and I am glad that it was open for our enjoyment.

We made reservations to eat here on Thanksgiving Day and was not disappointed. They put on such a big spread with so much variety that we all walked away happy.

We got the special, a steak rubbed in coffee/chocolate and other spices...AH-MAY-ZING! Easily the best steak I've ever eaten. I also ordered a flight of wine which was a nice compliment (local and other wineries). The dining room is very Colorado, it would've been nice to see the view in daylight. We sat near the fireplace, which is gas and... More
