This has been our special place to come and eat for the last 8 years. Old world setting with an elegance needed for that special night. Service was excellent with the food to match. Christmas and Valentine are my favorite times but anytime would be good. If we were not living in the area we would stay at the B&B. This place is must try.

Approaching the Inn of Glen Haven you'd never expect what you'll find inside - English charm hidden in the mountains. Originally recommended to us about 10 years ago as the best dining experience in Estes Park, we've been back more than once for special occasions. This is the kind of place that caters well to couples who want a quiet and charming place to relax, or small groups celebrating a special time. Our meals here have been of consistently high quality, and quite tasty. The review that described the quisine as from the 1960s might not be unfair, but the food is consistent in a positive sense with the whole presentation that the Inn offers. We've enjoyed our dining experiences here, and so will you. Don't expect NYC cutting-edge haute cuisine, but do expect personalized service, well prepared courses, and a relaxing meal in a setting conducive to good conversation. The Inn of Glen Haven remains on our list of special places to visit.

This little Aladin's Cave is tucked away from the usual tourist haunts but definitely worth a visit if not only to take in the charm of it's interior. You will not be bored as there is a lot to admire and take in. The food, in my opinion, was very good but a tad overpriced. You do get soup or salad as part of the cost of the Entree, the soup was delicious. However, I thought the sides could have been more imaginative. I had the halibut with shrimp and tarragon sauce, this was served with a few carrots and broccoli and a bit of rice and was a rather small portion. It would have been much nicer if it had been served with some kind of potato. My partner had beef and his was served with potato dauphinoise, he really enjoyed his meal. On the whole though I would recommend a visit here.

What a surprise when you enter this Inn! It's an old building on a scenic road to nowhere and you expect a rustic, creaky old restaurant. But you get a sumptuous, baroque Victorian room full of crepe, lace, silver, pewter, tapestry...

The cuisine is absolutely first-rate; any selection will make you happy. The service is of comparable quality.

Call to reserve.

While this is a good restaurant, from what I'd heard, expected more. I had a fish dish (the halibut was unavailable so another white fish was substituted without a price reduction) with a tasty tarragon cream sauce. The sides were unimpressive - bland carrots, broccoli, and red cabbage and somewhat seasoned rice. The white wine was served room temperature. The salad was good but the dressings were limited to raspberry wine vinegarette or plain oil & vinegar. The victorian decor was over-the-top. Service was adequate although we only saw one staff person the entire time who seated us, served us, and cleared the tables. Was a bit of a disappointment and overpriced.
