First Time Visit

We had breakfast for first time in this place while on vacation in late September. The omylette was very taste and full of vegetables and meat. The price for the meal was very reasonable.

We thoroughly enjoyed dinner in the lower dining room by the pond. The service was very good and the food was well prepared, tasty, and a good value for the money. One surprise when we arrived was to find there are two dining rooms, each with a separate menu. We recommend choosing the lower dining room as it offers very... More

We had just an average experience. The food was nothing special but was still good. Maybe it was that we were sat right next to a huge wedding reception and it felt as if we were attending the wedding as they did toasts and cake cutting right next to our table. Service also seemed a little slow.

The Other Side is located on 36 at Mary's Lake Road and is near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park. They have two choices; the coffee shop or the dining room and we tried both. The dining room was a little pricey but not unreasonable; the food was excellent and the view of their little lake and ducks is... More

Great price ($20/pp), includes endless champagne! Fabulous variety, I loved the guacamole and the several different potato options. It was fun to watch the mallard ducks along their window and balcony. Quality - fast service. We will go back!

Do you know those great sandwiches you can get at a golf course clubhouse? The ones where the bread is toasted just right and it hits the spot? Well that is just what you will find having lunch at The Other side. We had the Tuna Melt, Rueben and a kids grilled cheese. Don't forget the sweet potato fries to... More

The Other Side is the most dependable restaurant in Estes Park. The food is always good and they don't turn over chefs like some of the other places in town. Very good salads, sandwiches and dinners and usually room for customers to get in. Good service.

Went here for our anniversary and not what we expected at all - we had a retake for dinner the next night at Dun Raven so made up for it there. The Other Side restaurant seemed okay and was close to where we were staying, but our server obviously did not like her job. Our food was not cooked properly... More

Four of us visited this restaurant for breakfast. The service was good and so was the food! The tables are not right on top of each other so we couldn't overhear other diners. Nice. Coffee is good, too. The restaurant seems to be very clean, including the restrooms and that is a real deal breaker for me. A very pleasant... More

This restaurant is located across the street from our motel so it was an easy choice for breakfast. They have a good breakfast menu. In this case we both liked the sound of the Sunrise French Toast, slices of banana bread bathed in a cinnamon egg dip and grilled. This was very good but very rich. We added a side... More
