Great place to hang out with friends

The Rock Inn has it all - live music, good food, happy hour, good beer, good service, & good mountain atmosphere.

We got there early and were able to pick our seats and we picked one right by the fireplace. We got served right away and when the food came it did not disappoint! Everything was amazing, from the bread & butter to the brownie dessert. We did pay a pretty penny for all this awesomeness though, we left $80 poorer... More

Read all the reviews-looked good. We travel to Estes twice a month or more. Visiting the different shops and trying all the great restaurants in the area. Quite surprised how bad this was. The server couldn't tell us any of the drinks or specials and stated she hadn't tried anything on the menu. We sat for 15 minutes waiting for... More

The staff were friendly and inviting as soon as we set foot in the place we felted welcomed. The food was delicious. The wait staff was professional, polite, and the local musician was delightful.

This is such a wonderful place to go if you are in Estes Park. The service is the most welcoming we have ever experienced. The ambience and atmosphere are lighthearted and fun. Everyone really seems to be happy and enjoying their experience whether or not they are working or are patrons. The wine list is very small if you like... More

We have been to Rock Inn Mountain Tavern twice, once in May 2013 and again in August 2014. Both visits were extremely enjoyable and the best combination of taste and value we found in Estes Park. In our experience, most of the restaurants in Estes leave a bit to be desired in general; barely average, overpriced meals seem to be... More

We stopped by while in Estes Park and enjoyed the heat (it was 0 outside) and also the beer, good selection and knowledgable staff. We had bison burger and some appetizers too that hit the spot. The music was fun and local, and we'd go back again if in the area.

Music most nights, great beer selection. Used for a rehearsal diner and everyone had choices that they could like. Highly recommend reservations for large groups. They fit us in very quickly.

My mom and I ate dinner here last week. She had the filet mignon, I had the Flatiron steak. Both were cooked perfectly. Tender and very flavorful. We also enjoyed the bread with cinnamon butter, salads with housemade blue cheese dressing (much better than the grocery store!), sweet potato fries, and cooked vegetables. Our waitress was nice, atmosphere was just... More
