Description: Located in the Historic Crags Lodge, the View is an established, destination restaurant for many people living along the front range. Dining is casual yet elegant and offers the best view of Rocky Mountain National Park and Estes Park through it's 90 foot wall of windows. The menu is an eclectic mix of unique entrees such as the Tenderloin Tower with Shrimp and Lemon Beurre Blanc sauce or Chicken Daytona with Triple Sec Cream sauce. Only fresh, local ingredients are used in the menu and the staff is welcoming and friendly. The View is a perfect mix of atmosphere, views, excellent food and fine wine.

“Best View in Town!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2011

This is an AMAZING hidden gem! Most definitely the BEST VIEW in Estes Park! My husband and I visit The View Restaurant every year, we got engaged there and had our wedding reception there. Kathy and Mike are a pleasure to work with, and everything was beyond our expectations. The wedding was amazing and perfect, BUT SO IS DINNER! I would recommend trying the spicy shrimp and chicken pasta, and a brownie sundae for desert. We look forward to coming, every year.

“Fabulous Views Day or Night”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2011

High up overlooking Estes Park but only minutes away. Feel on top of the world
Located in very authentic old Crag's Lodge with much history on display.
Very accomodating wait staff.
Private table for two on small outdoor balcony- the ultimate in romance. Could propose here.
