Description: The Trailhead Restaurant can be entered from the gift shop. At the Trailhead you may enjoy breakfast, lunch or dinner and beverages, including regionally brewed and national brand beers, served from our Old West log bar. The experience of the Trailhead will be unforgettable as you dine surrounded by a panorama of towering mountains and the nearby seductive high peaks and forests of Rocky Mountain National Park.For those wanting a truly remarkable dining experience, try a meal on our expansive log and stone pillar open-air deck. From your table you will be treated to a magnificent view of mountains soaring above Fall River as it winds past forests, meadows and grazing wildlife. To the east you will see Fall River Valley bordered by mountains. To the west are majestic high peaks with a glimpse of Trail Ridge Road, leading to the Continental Divide and all that awaits you ahead in the Park, including the region’s highest mountain: Long’s Peak.While enjoying your meal or drink, have a park meal prepared, packed and ready-to-go when you are. Or, if a visit to our restaurant is not possible, you may simply want to take snacks, coffee, or other beverages and one of our packaged lunches with you. Don’t forget dessert!

This was a very good place to eat. The elk stew is delicious.. And we sat outside on the porch as we were eating. Very neat! We we're also able to sit and watch elk on the side of the mountain as we ate. Great place and very friendly staff!

Food was good, close to our hotel and entrance to the park. Service could have been a little better. Liked the fact that there was also the gift shop and park visitor center.

Saw the restaurant on way from RMNP to Estes Park and decided to return for dinner. More of a cafe than a restaurant. Service was good but food average, nothing outstanding. I am sure there are much better places to eat in Estes Park.
