Our family of 5 had a cozy booth in the bar with a great view of the full moon rising behind the mountains. Our waiter Matt was super friendly and added to a fun night out. The menu was varied and our food and drink were all tasty.

We have Estes Park area in our rotation about every three years ( going back almost 20 years! ) & a dinner @ Mary's Lake is a mandatory every time ... and it never disappoints! I had Salmon on wild rice; my wife had trout; we also had Calamari ( super good! ) & baked French Onion Soup. Delicious!

A little disappointed...lodge looked great from outside...had the meatloaf which was kind of dry... Trout was ok...view is great on terrace, but it was too cold for terrace...,restaurant fairly empty, hence not very cozy since it is so large. Service good, prices on higher end.

Located at Mary's Lake Lodge, just outside of Estes Park. Worth the short drive - you might see herd of elk swimming in Mary's Lake as you drive past! Tavern homey, lunch was excellent. Great burgers and high quality salads. Friendly and efficient staff. I'd definitely return for lunch or dinner.

After a morning hike of 10 miles my wife and I went for a late lunch. We were not disappointed. We both left full and satisfied. I got a beer sampler and was happy with all four of my choices. The French Dip was great and the nachos were good. Worth a stop. Better then a lot of the place... More

I expected to have an excellent meal with excellent service at this restaurant that required a reservation. Upon arrival we were quickly seated and were given a stack of 7 menu's to hand out to ourselves once seated. The menu looked good, they have some unusual items (IE: Elk, Boar, venison) on their menu. I decided to go for the... More

We had been advised to come here for a good meal but I cannot pass that recommendation along. I ordered the ribeye steak and my wife had the trout dinner, neither of which were terrible nor great. For the cost though, we had expected better. The trout was cooked too much making it leathery and the steak I ordered had... More

I've been going to Estes Park for many years and can't believe we didn't know about this place. It's now my new favorite as the views and food can't be beat and it has fabulous covered outdoor dining which we are always looking for to enjoy the summer weather.

When looking for a place to eat away from downtown, I Tripadvisor'ed on location and this place popped up. We were staying south of town in an Airbnb, and 1929 was only two miles away. They are located south of town, with an excellent patio view, and very good food. We had the 'pub food' - pretzel and nacho apps,... More

We stayed at Mary's and it was great to have a dinning option right on property. The best thing is this place has changed owners and is now a great restaurant. I had the elk chops, which were absolutely fantastic. My wife had the duck, which also was very good.

Thank dman310
