Nice staff and a cozy establishment. We were very happy there :) Up stairs has a casual menu but the downstairs has a more robust dinning selection.

We came for breakfast. Our food was good. I ordered the biscuits and gravy with a side of ham. The others in my party order egg dishes. Everyone thought that their food was good. Our only complaint is that the food wasn't hot when it arrived. The waiter allowed the food to sit for a while before bringing it to... More

The Other Side was recommended by a "local" who works at Safeway, and we were not disappointed. We both had the trout with lemon and enjoyed it thoroughly. Our waiter was especially friendly & helpful. The Other Side has a nice atmosphere, though we wish we could have seen the river (it was at night).

We ate at the Sunday champagne brunch and had a regular dinner there on this last visit. The brunch is always amazing. The regular meal was delicious too. This is one place we ALWAYS visit when we go to Estes Park.

We have been coming to Estes Park for the last ten years and The Other Side had been one of our favorite breakfast stops. This year the rest rooms were filthy, service was mediocre, our breakfast sat under the warming light for at least five minutes, and the dining room was dirty. We asked the hostess when we paid if...

Ate here the morning we left, close to our hotel. The breakfast was great (I had eggs and fruit, but my kids had flapjacks), super views too!

If you're looking for a special place to dine in Estes, this USED to be it. The food is good but the venue is rundown. Driving into the parking lot, you're greeted by dumpsters and trash. Entering the restaurant, the aroma or raw sewage is stomach churning, then it's worn out carpet, dirty windows, and a hostess with an attitude.... More

My husband and I stopped in for breakfast this morning. The room was casual. My husband had the Spanish skillet which was excellent and I had eggs over easy with bacon, hash browns, and toast. The eggs were fixed well, the bacon nice and thick, but the toast was overly buttered and the hash browns a little bland. It was... More

The restaurant has a wonderful buffet set up for Sunday morning with plentiful assortments of meats, veggies, sweets and so much more. The champaigne is free flowing and adds to the atmosphere. If you are headed to Estes Park for the fall folliage tour plan on a Sunday for The Other Side.

We went here for dinner our first night in Estes Park. My husband ordered the chicken fried steak but they were out of that (at 6:00 pm). He ordered pork chops instead. His meal was mediocre and skimpy for the price. I had the chef salad which was very good and the hot loaf of bread that comes with the... More
