My girlfriend and I stopped in here on the recommendation of the worker at our hotel. The decor was rustic, and I liked the smell of wood burning in there. I ordered the salmon, which was good, although the side of mashed potatoes seemed sweet which I didn't care for. My girlfriend said her steak was pretty good, and cooked... More

Good for small plates and typical bar food and burgers, which are excellent. Great selection of beers. Best is the live music several nights per week!

I think the gist of understanding what's to offer (food wise) in Estes Park is limited, in regards to quality. Yet the Rock Inn Mountain Tavern was pretty good, even though the prices were on the higher side. I order a medium cooked Flatirons steak, which was almost rare by the middle of the cut - otherwise I would've given... More

Just celebrated our anniversary dinner at The Rock Inn. Walking in from the cold, we felt the cozy warmth of this cabin restaurant. Our service was excellent and the food delicious. Ambiance was the best. We would return!

The ambience is pure Rocky Mountain. The selections were excellent, the service was superb, and the prices great.... during happy hour. Also a good drink selection. The creamy shrimp & veggie soup was tasty and the chicken parmigian good, not spectacular, but good. I had to ask for more sauce. Definitely recommend.

What a nice surprise, real tea in a pot that was steaming hot, not the lukewarm, weak tea that most restaurants serve. I would return just for another pot of tea. The salmon hash was a little dry and the salmon over cooked but all was forgiven after tasting the gluten free toast and jam. Another one in our party... More

Glad I visited! Food was good. Restaurant had a cool atmosphere with live music, but I thought the menu was pricey...
