Great fillet and prime rib!

Atmosphere was rustic cabiny and so cute! The place was packed but it didn't detract from excellent service. The food was delicious and I appreciated the suggested wine parings with each entree. Great experience!

We had a great dinner at Twin Owls! Our server, Kristie, was attentive and friendly and the food was good. My husband had the filet and said it was the best he's had in a long time. And although we really didn't feel our food was taking a long time Kristie was very aware of the time we were waiting... More

My wife and I have been going to Estes Park on a yearly basis since the late 70s. Twins Owls is our FAVORITE place to dine in E.P. We always make sure that we go there for dinner on our last night in E.P. Food is excellent and the ambience is nice.

We took a vacation to Estes Park and my family watched our kids while we picked a nice restaurant. We had never heard of the place before but decided to try it. I had the Elk Medallions and it was the best meal at a restaurant I have ever had. I have thought about flying out there with my wife... More

Our go in Estes! Great food, awesome staff, atmosphere second to none. It is one of those never fail places that seems to get better with time. The wild game and fish are not to be missed.

I just tried to make a reservation at this restaurant for my sister's bachelorette party this summer. I've been to restaurants before for bachelorette parties where they pre-ordered all of the food and had special table decorations for our group. It was lovely! I asked this place if they could do the same thing and they were totally unaccommodating. Sadly,... More

The view was wonderful, the food excellent, and the service (while informal) was superb. I had the filet, amazing. He had the elk tenderloins which were far more tender than I would ever had imagined. Although this might be expensive for some (we had a $30 bottle of wine, app, and 2 entrees the bill was just over $100) we... More

The food at Twin Owls was good without being exceptional - but rare steaks should still be properly seared - and it represented average value for money. However, at $120 for two without any beverages, I expect far, far better service. When we arrived the hostess greeted us and grabbed a couple of menus as she prepared to seat us.... More

We spent the weekend in Estes Park and found this place on the hotel list of "fine dining". We went on a Sunday evening and it was hardly busy. The 3 of us had to wait 20 minutes for a host to even acknowledge our presence . Then after waiting, we waited 15 more minutes while he cleaned a table.... More
