What an incredible dining experience! First off, this restaurant is off the beaten path of the touristy part of Estes Park, so our dinner was so much more quiet and intimate. The restaurant is an old lodge (of course with all upgraded and modern amenities!); loved the creeking wood floors when we walked in. We did not know reservations were recommended; but fortunately there was seating in the lounge. The lounge was even more intimate and cozy, and we were seated in a very comfortable booth. The view was spectacular of the "twin owls" rock formation above the restaurant. The hostess and our waitperson were superb; beyond professional and courteous, and always attentive. They gave great tips of sights to see while in Estes Park. The dinner menu had a wonderful selection to choose from. I had the most delectable and tender "melt in your mouth" elk tenderloins. Vegetables and green salad were all fresh; no "bag lettuce" here. Not sure why this restaurant isn't at least in the top 10 restaurants of Estes Park...it well deserves to be. We could not have asked for a more satisfying evening and dining experience.
