Had a beautiful meal after meeting friends at the bar for a happy hour. As with most places in Estes, it is a little expensive but this is something you just have to get used to once you get there. Try the buffalo steak. The marinade was out of this world! Also they have a great selection of local bottled... More

My husband and I stopped by for the first time this past Monday evening for dinner. What a wonderful experience. The ambience was warm and inviting. Our food was quite tasty with a menu sure to please all who visit. We have been visiting Estes Park for years and just found this place. There was no entertainment during our visit,... More

I knew there were many locals that were in for dinner and happy hour, but felt homely and comfortable! Happy hour was 2 for 1's and a decent food menu, not bad prices for the food you received. Try the corn chowder, almost need a few bowls! Stopped in on a Thursday night and there was a waiting line starting... More

We had breakfast at the Rock Inn Mountain Tavern last Sunday. The new breakfast menu has a good selection of items.

Great drinks, great appetizers, great food, and awesome atmosphere! We went on a Sunday night not expecting too much being on sunday, but there was a wonderful acoustic musician to make it a great experience. The devil on horseback is a MUST TRY! If not you're missing out and beginning your experience on the wrong foot. I also recommend the... More

Just love this place. We went on Valentines day and they had a great vegetarian item - I guess it was even vegan- Curried Risotto. It had small brown garbanzo beans, carmelized onion, green and red peppers and cashews. So tasty! And it came with bread and salad. The singer was good but I enjoy it more when they play... More

We went here after spending the day roaming the Rocky Mountain National Park. We arrived here and the atmosphere is a pretty cozy Colorado decor type restaurant, it has a lodgy feel with a stage that has live music from Thursday to Sunday according to the sign. We were able to get a table right away which was nice because... More

Good as ever...maybe better! The Rock Inn in Estes Park is funky, fun and friendly! Great Colorado ambience; super service and a nice, varied menu. We visited this time on Bluegrass Thursday and had a great time with the musical trio who played soft enough to allow diners to converse, but also to enjoy the music. Perfect. Our waiter was... More

Save your money and get the Buffalo Burger instead of steak. Goon a night where there's music and sit near the music. No reservations but worth the 40 minute wait for us.
