This is a very nice restaurant. Our server was very good and the food was also quite good. I really liked the ranch beans and the shrimp were fried perfect. We both said that we wouldn't mind going there again.

I ordered the buffalo steak. It was perfectly cooked and served with an orchid and kiwi garnish. My server was pleasant and attentive. The price was right and a good value. I want to bring my family next time.

After reading several reviews on many of the steak houses in Estes Park, we decided to take a chance and go to the other side restaurant. We were not disappointed. The service was friendly and the oysters on the half shell were fantastic. Our meat selections were the prime rib and the cowboy steak with the bone in ribeye. They... More

Went to Estes Park for 4 days before Christmas for a "romantic getaway". The only night we ate out, we went to The Other Side (recommended by our condo complex). The manager was acting as bartender, and came up with a very fun and yummy cocktail. The food was absolutely delicious (crab claws, salmon, steak, fresh - warm - bread!)... More

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

For years I have looked to Tripadvisor Reviews to help point out our successes as well as our short comings, can't say that I have always agreed with the points of view made but always felt there was something to be learned from them. This particular review, however, seems to be a deliberate effort to smear the character of one... 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
