My husband and I had just arrived in Estes Park and were looking for a place to grab dinner. We each ventured into having a wild game burger. I had buffalo and he had Yak. Both were very good. Price seemed reasonable for resort town and wild game. Service was slow that night, but may have just been our server.... More

Come here for the wild game burgers; Elk, Bison, and Yak. The elk and bison burgers are lean and free of fillers such as pork or beef. Waitstaff is very attentive and ensure drinks are topped off all the time. Prices are a little high and I would not pay the premium for the elk steaks as I can go... More

Wonderful meal here with family and friends the other week. We were pretty cold and hungry and the fabulous steaks and burgers and excellent service from Shane set us up for the rest of the afternoon. Lovely atmosphere - we had a fab time!

Looking for a place to grab lunch while shopping and walking around town. Glad we made the choice to stop there as the food was very good, service was in the adequate to good range. We were there when weather was still nice so ate on the patio. Can't really complain about anything. Give the place a try when in... More

When visiting Estes Park, don't miss the burger experience at the Grubstake! We were simply walking around the town and picked a place to eat; little did we know it would be the absolute best! We will return -- without doubt.

Only a handful people in restaurant. We were sat and left sitting for some time without anyone coming over to greet us, get drinks, etc. Decided to leave.

No no no, save your TIME and money and skip this poorly managed train wreck of a restaurant, we waited an hour for a table, by then the place had cleared out and we were seated. We put our food order in and waited and waited and waited about 30 minutes in a large group and another couple came in... More
