This is our 2nd year in Estes Co and once again we visited Orlando's steak house.
Once again we were not disappointed. We had the steak and lobster and is was to melt in your mouth to die for good. We had the pleasure of meeting chef Tandy.
This is a small but quaint restaurant and the service is excellent!
We sat outside the Bar and toasted to my son and wife who were married last year in the Rocky Mountain National park. Another perfect end to a perfect day.
Thank you Chef Tandy

We've been coming to Estes Park for years and didn't know about Orlando's. A little hard to find because it's upstairs from a bar, the restaraunt is classy and the food very good.

Our family was in town for a family wedding. We had dinner at Orlando's the evening prior to the event. The food was good, although the scallops were very salty.Nice experience but not extremely memorable. We would return again.

We have been to all steak houses in Estes but thought we'd try Orlando's as it was rated above well.
Do not waste your time. They had a limited NYE menu and couldn't master it. We ordered med-rare filet mignon steaks but they were rare and tasteless and served with bearnaise on the side. The bearnaise sauce had dill in it and was grossly over-powering, not too mention cold. The lobster was mediocre.
The prices were reasonable but you get what you pay for and we will not eat there again.
For a great steak in Estes, stick to Twin Owls Steakhouse. It'll cost you a bit more but you won't be disappointed.

Heatherbrownstone, Manager at Orlando's Steakhouse, responded to this reviewResponded January 5, 2013

I apologize for your disappointment with your experience at Orlando's. It is hard to answer your review as it is a slam on pretty much everything, and touting another steakhouse, at that. I was busing tables that night, as a manager and I do not remember anyone with such complaints. In fact, we were complimented on dinners all night long. Tandy, the chef, has been at Orlando's for 17 years and another 12 at the Dunraven Inn. The man has literally cooked thousands of steaks. He is known for his expertise with steaks and seafood.
You stated there was dill in the bernaise. There is not. That is tarragon you tasted. If you didn't like it, that's a shame, as we're known for it.
I'm not sure what the compliant meant that our menu was limited for NYE. That is our menu. That's it. What were you expecting?
When dining in a place, if you're this unhappy, please let the staff know when you're there. It is mean and unfair to hide behind you're computer and state things, true to you, that owners have no chance to fix.

Good steak, seafood and service (overall a four), but not up to the high ratings and prices. One of our guests sent back their meal to be cooked to the original order, and it came back burned. Unfortunately, this is not the way to impress your friends. If your looking for the best steak in town and a wonderful atmosphere, I'd recommend Twin Owls Steakhouse. Their still my favorite.
