Great find on our most recent trip

This restaurant was new to us on this trip to Estes, but it's clearly a favorite with the locals. The food was delicious and they have live music. (The music is a mixed bag, with some performances better than others, but it's still fun.) It's crowded and somewhat loud, so better for a fun evening... read more

My brother and his wife recently relocated to Estes Park, CO. I was visiting them, to help them do some work in their new house before they had their furniture brought in. We had dinner with their daughter, son-in-law and their two young boys that Thursday, to celebrate the progress made during the week. We arrived in three groups and... More

Great atmosphere and the people who work there hustle their butts off. The food, well, it's ok, but nothing to get excited about. Not as good as last year when we went, but will probably try it again. For the price, they need to up the quality.

Rock Inn was better this summer than last. We have been to this restaurant every year for several years and it wasn't up to par last year. One problem is that their menu has not changed in years but the meals we selected this year were better than last year. Go for happy hour!

This was our favorite meal this trip. Loved the live acoustic music. The food was great. Salmon on the kids menu! My wife also had salmon and said the spinach cream sauce on top was great. I had the meatloaf and it was awesome. In my opinion, it was great food, with prices that you would expect for great food,... More

We were exhausted and starving after a long travel day to Estes Park. Good first restaurant to try in the area. Loved the music and steaks.

This is a very casual place with lots of noise and buzz. Our steaks were prepared perfectly. My only complaint is about the "seasonal" vegetables. They were julienned carrots with a tiny amount of cale. We sat at the bar before dinner and the staff was very friendly and prepared a great old fashion.

We were told this was the local favorite in Estes Park so we went for it. The food was good, service was decent. They had a gluten free menu for my sister and her trout was excellent. Our young kids ate rather well and we enjoyed the outdoor seating. When the sun set and it started to get a little... More
