Average steakhouse with a few surprises...

It seems that steak & potato places are a dime a dozen in the Rockies, and this place pretty much fits the bill. But they had a few surprises, namely the Elk Medallions and the Roasted Duck. The medallions were very tender and just slightly over done (i ordered medium rare) and the duck sauce... read more

So worth the visit. We had Elk, Lamb and Venison along with the recommended wine pairings. Exceptional choices. My favorite was the elk, so delicate and tender. My friend favored the lamb, just mouthwatering. The venison was quite good but we preferred the other two dishes. It was all finished off with a chocolate mousse cake. The staff was very... More

Local friends carried us to this restaurant on a Friday night. We started off with the Berry Brie en Croute, which is French Brie stuffed with dried mango, pineapple, apricot, and cranberry wrapped in a light pastry. Probably the best appetizer I have every had. For the main course we had Buffalo filet served with crab meat, asparagus and green... More

Nice intimate restaurant. Very romantic feel. Wine pairings were good and was able to sample several before deciding which was nice.

Fantastic meal, the main dining room is in a beautiful old log lodge. Service was great as well. View up the Black Canyon is spectacular. Highly recommended.

Food was great with a selection of Elk and Buffalo steak. Serving staff were polite and very knowledgable. Tucked away, so be careful not to miss it.

the hotel was located in a very rustic and charming setting. Our food was nicely prepared and the service was excellent. I would recommend to anyone staying in Estes.

Unsurpassed setting in a historic rustic building. We had the salmon and prime rib paired with wine ...both were excellent. The bread with oil was delicious. I would highly recommend this place for a special night out.

Business has put me in Estes Park over my birthday the last two years. I have chosen the Twin Owls Prime Rib both times and it has been excellent. Great food, good service. What more could you ask for?
