Wonderful rooms, and usually pretty good food. Sometimes the food is outstanding, but they seem to get different chefs each year. You need to stay here! Super relaxing and great views.

Summer weekday lunch. Not at all crowded. We enjoyed the hearty burgers and fries. Good but nothing special. Service was attentive. Ask for a table next to the large windows so you can get the great view of the town and lake below. We'll return when in the area.

Drove up to the Grand Lake Lodge restaurant for dessert at sunset and we weren't disappointed! A beautiful way to end the day and the desserts were very good. Although not cheap, it's a worth the treat! Great photo opportunities as well!

Had a wonderful table overlooking village of Grand Lake from and enclosed balcony. Service was very good and food was pretty good -- better than most we had in Grand Lake, but not exceptional. After dinner, enjoyed relaxing by the huge indoor fireplace.

I have visited Grand Lake many times. Our "go to" place, the Rapids, was closed for the season, so we thought we would try the Grand Lake Lodge Sunday brunch. We got to he Lodge and waited in the dinning room for a few minutes. It was not busy and staff was milling around and talking to each other, so... More

We drove Trail Ridge Road over from Estes Park, and had lunch at Grand Lake Lodge. The hotel is fun to see inside, and the view from the porch is wonderful. Food was fine, and we had very good service. A perfect place to enjoy a fall lunch.

Stayed in a condo in Grand Lake and came here for two meals. Food was fresh and good quality. Nice menu choices and reasonable prices. Friendly, helpful service. Spectacular view high overlooking Grand Lake and surrounding area. Nice lodge lobby with huge wood fireplace to sit around. Wish we would have stayed at the Lodge. Next time!

We did not stay at the lodge. We drove over from Estes Park to have lunch at the Grand Lake Lodge restaurant and to visit Grand Lake; and then return to Estes Park. They only had the restaurant area open that overlooked the lake. We had to wait about 25 minutes to get a table. After getting the table, the... More
