Very nice place. We decided to test the waiter with our menu selections, and he did not fail. Wife and I both had a $6 house Cabernet and a dinner salad. She ordered the lasagna roll, and I ordered the French Onion Soup as my...More

We had a flight of their ciders; and it was amazing. Such great flavors. Husband had the cajun wings and they were a dry rub; very tasty. Wait staff was personable and quick to deliver our snacks.

Not as upscale as it used to be. More like a bar and restaurant combo now. Limited menu, choices are good just not enough of them. The dishes don't exactly match the descriptions on the menu. Nice outdoor seating looking towards town.

The atmosphere was nice but their food wasn't appealing to me. Estes Park calls trout to me and their trout just didn't do it. Four of us ordered it and had the same opinion. Hope it was just a bad night in the kitchen.

I left a message to reserve a table, but they never received it, and they were rather odd about the whole thing. However, when we arrived on a Saturday evening, there were plenty of empty tables, both inside and out. We opted for outside on...More

It had been a while since I had been here, but I came for the food. There menu has become much more sparse than it used to be. Saturday 4pm and they were already out of trout and bison. Come on. If you eat there...More
