My wife had to convince me about the place. The menu looks expensive and the front picture does not give justice to this restaurant. The service was outstanding and the food was very good. The inside remind you that you are in the ocky mountain west.

Built in 1937 as a dance hall for the big band era. Has a terrific ambience. We were seated on the 73 year old stage so got an overview of the whole scene. Acoustic guitar & singing. Great food. Server offered recommendations that were spot on. My husband loved his trout & my NY strip steak was excellent. I had... More

Great food! Loved the vegetable medley! Dates stuffed w/ garlic, wrapped in bacon were amazing too. Happy hour specials were such a deal, and a wonderful treat after a day of hiking in the Nat'l Forest! Views of mountains from our table were spectacular. Highly recommend!

A top notch place for dinner. They manage to make an open bar area, local singer and full house feel like a friendly place for diner. The menu is very good, food is presented well and delicious. No reservations offered so plan to wait a short while for a table and it is worth the wait.

The flat iron steaks were a bit raw for medium, but were melt in your mouth tender. The atmosphere was a bit noisy with the live music. We had a nice time and great food. Tried the bacon wrapped dates. 2 of the 4 of us liked them :-)

Looks like just another rural roadhouse but the food was more interesting and delicious than you might expect and the service was prompt and friendly. Live music was a nice addition, too. You could listen and enjoy but not so loud you couldn't hear your table mates.

We found the Rock Inn to be a very comfortable, relaxing setting and the food was quite good. All 4 of our meals were prepared to personal desires and very tasty.

This restaurant was recommended to us by the owners of our resort cabin and they did not steer us wrong. We would not have realized the venue was a restaurant, let alone an upscale restaurant. The menu is somewhat limited so we both opted for the filet mignon, mine Bistro Style with a port wine sauce and my daughter's with... More

We were out in Estes Park for a 4 day weekend in July of 2014. After a long day of hiking up to Chasm Lake (highly recommend for anyone looking for a challenging hike - absolutely gorgeous and highly rewarding!) we were looking for a solid meal and cold craft beer. The Rock Inn was one of the few places... More

The ny strip was the worst cut of meat I've eaten in a long time. The uncooked vegetable medley was a joke.
