Very Good Food

By now I have eaten here quite a few times and the food is consistently very good, with the Sage and Pecan Rissoto out of this world! I don't know of any other place in Estes Park where you can get Rissoto. The service has always been friendly and fast also have shown up without a reservation and... read more

Grouchy hostess, told us it would take 20 minutes to clear a place outside even though there was no one there. Took 20 minutes to get water, wine was warm, even though there were only about 3 people in the restaurant. Once we ordered, food was OK but don't think there is an excuse for the extremely slow service. It... More

Omgosh, where to start. Open table everywhere and the hostess says without a reservation you will sit in the bar or "the back room". We said will sit in the bar. We go to sit in the bar and she yells at us those are reserved yo have to sit "at the bar". Ok, then the bartender from hell. Barely... More

The Tavern seemed like a fine dining place with lots of upper class gentry. We were in our hiking clothes but that didn't seem to matter. The location is great with outside seating and sweeping views of the mountains. The kids' menu had some nice options though expensive food. The risotto was nice and we were able to get some... More

We arrived in Estes Park earlier than expected and the most highly rated restaurants were all booked. Taveen 1929 was also well rated and we were able to get a table asap, which was crucial considering we had a 3 yo on the verge of a 3-mile island style meltdown. Staff was exceptional and service was beyond attentive and accommodating.... More

After a full morning at RMNP (ascending Old Fall River Road, descending Trail Ridge Road, a stroll around Sprague Lake), we were interested in having a nice lunch...and thus far we had been rather disappointed with most of the eateries we had visited in Estes Park. Based on a recommendation from a local, we drove over to Mary Lake Lodge.... More

We stayed at Mary's Lodge and ate here several times. The food is pretty good and the service on several occasions was also good. We both liked the beers we tried, but thought $15 for a very average margarita was ridiculous. We also felt the woman taking phone reservations was extremely rude. The last night we dined here, we were... More

Had dinner and drinks at Tavern 1929 (the restaurant and tavern at Mary's Lake Lodge) and was very pleased. Sat on a wonderful deck of this historic lodge which offered an amazing view of the mountains. The beers were very good and I enjoyed the beer flight they offered. I had the mountain man meatloaf and it was very good.... More

We had dinner on the porch here and the view was very nice! The service was pretty good, too! The food portions were huge, but only average in taste. None of us could finish our meal due to the size and the average quality. In my opinion, the prices are way too high for what we got! I don't know... More

We have eaten here several times (under the former name) but it had been at least 3 years since we had been out to Mary's Lake. We had a big group- 10 people. And since a few had never been to EP before, we wanted to take them somewhere off the beaten path. Tavern 1929 is a bit out of... More
