5 years later and just as good

Stopped here again after visiting several years ago. The french dip sandwich was just like I had remembered from years ago. The sandwich and jus are incredible. Live music on a Monday night was great as well.

Love, Love, Love this place. My son found this for us to go to. The next week we had friends visiting and took them there, they loved it. They were vegetarian and loved their food.

May be a weird name, but this appetizer is delicious- dates stuffed with roasted garlic cloves and wrapped in bacon with garlic aioli. Worth some extra time in the gym! They also make all their own yummy salad dressings. Otherwise, food was just ok.

The inside setting is worth checking out itself. Pretty good bar food. We had a spicy corn dip, which was fantastic. The buffalo burger and pizza were good as well. Definitely recommend.

We came here on a whim and weren't sure what to expect. The menu was varied which was nice but prices were quite high for location and quality of food. Burgers were decent but not worth the cost. They do have locally sourced items and great side item choices. Beer selection was extensive and they had gluten free options.

Was one of our first restaurant stops in the Estes Park area. Only found the place because our friend had a AAA guide that recommended this place and it had gluten free menu items. Loved that quinoa was a side option for most meal items. The menu was varied and they source locally when possible. Prices were high for the... More

We stayed down the street and were told this a good place to eat. As it turned out, it was. Food and Service were both very good. Also some low key live music and atmosphere is good. Prices reasonable too.

Love the atmosphere here! Live music, fun local hangout. One of our favorite places in Estes. Try the "Devils on Horseback" appetizer!

We did not find this place as good as the TA reviews I had read. I did not care for the Flatbread chicken. Only order if you really like olives. The menu was overpriced and he place did not have a great happy hour menu as mentioned in a previous review.
