We had lunch at The Other Side and were quite impressed. Our waitress was very attentive, and served us large portions of delicious food. We dined there because we had a restaurant.com certificate but it was so good that we are going back. A huge window looks over a nice lake for a pleasant dining experience. I would recommend this...

We went for a late lunch with extended family on a Saturday afternoon with 8 adults and 3 children. The hostess quickly arrange to have tables put together to seat all of us together. The staff was awesome, and the food selection was very good, from delicious burgers to high-end plates. Everyone liked their meal, and the check was not... More

Had brunch on August 10 2014. Outstanding meal, lots of choices and a view of the lake with ducks. Food was hot lots of it and very tasty. Staff very friendly. Will eat there again when we return to Estes Park.

This is a nice restaurant on the west side of Estes Park, not far from the entrance to RMNP. We stopped in for breakfast one morning, and were surrounded by dining park rangers, which I saw as a good sign. Our food was fine (I had the wild game sampler... I recommend it). The prices were reasonable, and the service... More

I had found The Other Side here on TripAdvisor and called to make a reservation. They were very friendly and got us all set up. I even called back in to ask a few questions and both times they were more than helpful and happy to answer my questions. When we arrived they were not that busy, but were glad... More

We thought the food was good for the price. My fried shrimp and backed potato fit the bill. I like that I could pick a side besides french fries or a salad. My husband enjoyed his salad and French dip. We have visited Estes Park over a dozen times and we always enjoy eating at The Other Side. We were... More

The service was very, very slow, although it was a holiday weekend. We were seated after a 10 minute wait, during which we browsed at the connected shop. The food came out slowly but it was good. In the end, not too excited to go back but it'll do in a pinch.

The service was excellent and the food was well above average. We will definitely go here again! The views from the restaurant are nice and it was fun to see the ducks in the pond. I wish they didn't have a feed tray for them though, as I do not think it's a good idea to feed any wild animal.

I was in charge of an old car tour in Estes Park and we made a lunch reservation for 85 people. Big groups are always a challenge for restaurants. The staff at the Other Side did an excellent job of getting everyone served in a reasonable time and the food was good. A good experience dealing with what could have... More

This place was recommended by locals. We both selected and much enjoyed large salads. Seating by the windows afforded nice pond with busy, happy ducks. Nice, quiet setting away from the downtown crowds & noise.
