Great local greasy spoon! The food bar is cool. We stayed at Discovery Lodge and got a buy one get one half off coupon for this restaurant - good deal.

“Go for the people, the good food is a bonus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012 via mobile

We had breakfast here...chicken fried steak with eggs and hasbrowns, and a cinanamon roll. The food was very good, better than most cafes. This place's real charm, however, are the waitstaff and locals. Friendly, funny, welcoming--if we lived in Estes Park we'd be here all the time. It's the kind of place that makes you feel at home. Don't expect anything fancy; do expect a real American experience with a view of our beautiful Rocky Mountains. Open on Sundays.

“great value, but not the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2012

Went to the Moutaineer Restaurant for breakfast. Food was so-so. It is probably a standard local coffee shop. It appears to cater mostly to locals. The wait staff was very nice, friendly, The food was nothing great. I ordered pancakes which turned out to be a little rubbery. The service was slow which was surprising since the restaurant was only half full. The staff made up for it by not apologizing and giving us complimentary coffee. If you like stick to your ribs food, and plenty of it, you'll like this place, especially since it is inexpensive. If you are looking for healthy food or a good atmosphere you should probably go elsewhere.

“Great Estes Park breakfast location patronized by the locals - a must try.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

Excellent menu selections along with pricing. It's one of my all time favorites in Estes Park. Can't go wrong starting out your day having breakfast at the Mountaineer in Estes Park, CO.
