“Impressed!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2013 via mobile

This place was exactly what we were looking for. Great beer, great service, nice place to sit outside, live music, etc. But the food was a real surprise. A big step up from bar food, and much better than we expected to find in Estes Park. If you're looking for a place to have dinner or a few beers, this is it!

“My Favorite”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2013

As a local here in Estes Park and someone who has visited about every restaurant/bar in town, the Rock Inn is undoubtedly one to check out. Not only is the food awesome, the atmosphere is nice, service is excellent and did I mention the Devil's on Horseback? The Rock is also one of the only bars in town bringing in great music. Lot's of good beers to choose from and mountain views--- can't get much better than that.

“Very tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

The food here is very good and a little bit of a surprise - not your normal "tavern" fare. Service was good and it was a busy night. The staff is very friendly. The cost is a bit more but the food is good, so worth the splurge. (Flatiron steak is the best!)

“Great atmosphere and good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

Although this tavern is a little ways out of Estes Park, it is worth the trip. Our motel owner recommended it as a good local place to go. The place was packed with people of all ages. Service was good and the food was delicious. I believe that there is music at the weekends, but we were there on a week night, so cannot comment on that aspect of the place.

“Excellent food, great beer on tap, comfortable atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

We were at a conference at the YMCA and stopped at this Inn for dinner and drinks one night. It was well worth it. Ate delicious fresh trout and steak, and happy hour deals meant we could try two Colorado brews for the price of one. The atmosphere appealed to every age - families, older couples, and young couples. The bartenders and waitstaff were incredibly friendly and helpful.
