Finally, a place that offers children a healthy, interesting meal. My 6 year old daughter ordered the salmon with polenta and loved it! The trout was excellent, and although the line was hideously long the wait was less than expected. Our server was completely delightful and honest with an option we were entertaining. Overall, we had a lovely family meal... More

Was there two nights ago. We had a great meal. The service was excellent. There was no wait and we got right in. I've been to Estes Park a half a dozen times, this is a place to revisit. I had the trout it was very good. Also, we enjoyed the local musician who performed.

My wife and I had an enjoyable dinner at the Rock Inn. We were greeted promptly and in a friendly manner when we entered and seated promptly. While they don't take reservations, they added our name to the list when we called so there was no delay when we arrived. She had Chicken Marsala and I had trout in dill... More

Our family of twelve ate dinner here amid lots of locals. Seems a popular spot. The food was great and accompanied by live music. I had a veggie burger made in house and it was delicious.

We were staying across the street so it was convenient to walk across on Thursday night for dinner. But this Thursday night (not sure if it's weekly or monthly) was "Park Night" which meant all the park employees were there for a get together. The place was packed. In spite of that, the service was great but the whole atmosphere... More

We had one dinner at this restaurant during our visit to Estes Park and very much enjoyed it. Lots of inventive selections, fresh food, and nice ambience with live acoustic music. The prices were reasonable and the service good.

We ended up here after another place had a long wait. We walked right in and were able to be seated outside. They use REAL food here, local/seasonal ingredients and everything was prepared really well......yummy! We had ribs with sauteed kale and carrots and boiled/flash fried potatoes, all to die for. We started with hummus and ended with homemade almond... More
