Good Food and local music

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

There was live music, we sat by the potbelly stove, which was great for me as I was cold. Really good service, enjoyed the food, we sat and just enjoyed the music, the people, and tavern feel.

This was our second trip to Rock Inn. The food was as good as we had anticipated and unlike our first visit where there was a special menu for restaurant week, we enjoyed items off the every day menu. Everything was served hot and delicious. The Rock Inn has a mix of tourist and local folks, it is not on... More

The best part was the music. We went during the week on a "slow" night...live music, great food, great drinks...a must on any visit to Estes Park!

Hit this place up during a quick winter getaway and upon the recommendation of our inn keeper as a top pick of locals. Atmosphere was quaint and lodgy feeling, which was nice. Food was above average, solid 4 out 5 stars in the category of casual dining. Service was perfectly fine. For a casual dining experience with above average food,... More
