The food was "ok". My husband and I both had the buffalo burger. The patty was thin and very bland. The atmosphere is casual local diner (ish). Many options to choose from.

Nothing fancy... just a little diner.. but the food is great and the service is very friendly. This place is small so be sure to get here before the lunch crowd.

We had the elk burger and it was very good. My friends had a drink called a mudslide and they are still talking about it. Our waitress was very helpful and courteous.

Try the cheesy fries. Made with real grated cheddar cheese, not the type poured from a can. The Pizza's have a thin crust and were tasty. Only negative was the fact they do not serve coffee, they said it was because they were not a coffee house, have to wonder how they decided on this menu exclusion.

The food was tasty, but the presentation not so good. The service was a little bit bad, due to the fact that there was a foreign student who served us, and unfortunately she spoke not so good English. Anyway, the overall rate is acceptable, as the food quality satisfied us. We are not recomending to eat pizza here, not so... More

This is a great place for a laid back meal, great sandwiches and burgers and a very helpful staff. We had an off the wall question and our waitress went next door to ask another local because she didn't have the answer! When does that happen!?! We will definitely be back.

We've eaten here over the past 5-6 years. The food is a little expensive but the quality is good and the service is fast. The sandwiches, wraps, and burgers are good. The only downside like most of downtown is access to parking.

We had a huge group right after a parade so they were pretty busy. Staff was always walking around asking if we needed anything and the food was great. Definitely get the Nacho's and the French Dip was amazing.

I was looking for a quality home cooked like meal in a tourist town. After walking the streets, I came upon Locals Grill. Pesto Mac 'N Cheese was tonight's special. Mushrooms, spinach, tomatoes, macaroni, cheese, and basil filled my plate. The garlic bread was crispy, but not hard. A perfect meal. After a tiring enjoyable day in Rocky Mountain National... More
