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

Friendly service and very flexible. A little slow but there were 8 of us. Wonderful specialty beer selection. Food was very good. Good value.

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.

Good for our whole family. Nice service. Woodsy lodge atmosphere. We ate there twice during our week stay in Estes Park.

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

A group of 6 of us stopped off for our evening meal here after touring around the Rocky Mountains National Park. We were lucky to get a table in what could only be termed a quiet secluded position. The food really was top quality and we all agreed it was excellent value for money. We arrived at the appropriate time... More

Dined here while visiting RMNP and staying in Estes Park. Recommended by Mike at Stonebrook Resort. They made a great meal and the service was fairly quick and very courteous. The decorations made you feel like you were in the mountains, but felt comfortable and not kitschy.

This was a fun place for dinner - casual dress (jeans), good wait staff. My husband had chicken marsala which was very good. I had the pan seared trout which was terrific! Perfectly cooked, just flaky but not dried out. I had it with the butter and dill, rather than the Cajun option. Yukon gold mashed potatoes were my indulgence... More

We ate here 3 years ago and remember being very good so we stopped again. We had buffalo and beef burgers with their special long peaks potatoes, very good, very fresh and tasty. We topped diner with lemon cheesecake - delicious. Great service very attentive, and observant. We will be back, highly recommend this place on the way from Park.

Quieter place off the beaten drag in Estes and well worth the effort to find. The wait staff was outstanding and the portions were by big. Kids had the pizza that was hand made and the appetizer of bacon wrapped dates surprised me. The steep your own tea was a nice touch. Get there early and live entertainment starts around... More
