We've eaten here many times over the past 18 years. For a long time, it was our favorite place in Estes. The view continues to be spectacular from the porch, and the old lodge has a wonderful mountain flavor, but the food is at best...More

We had a flight of their ciders; and it was amazing. Such great flavors. Husband had the cajun wings and they were a dry rub; very tasty. Wait staff was personable and quick to deliver our snacks.

Not as upscale as it used to be. More like a bar and restaurant combo now. Limited menu, choices are good just not enough of them. The dishes don't exactly match the descriptions on the menu. Nice outdoor seating looking towards town.

The atmosphere was nice but their food wasn't appealing to me. Estes Park calls trout to me and their trout just didn't do it. Four of us ordered it and had the same opinion. Hope it was just a bad night in the kitchen.

It had been a while since I had been here, but I came for the food. There menu has become much more sparse than it used to be. Saturday 4pm and they were already out of trout and bison. Come on. If you eat there...More

We stopped in for an appetizer and drink. We ordered the antelope and elk sausage with sauerkraut and mustard. It was delicious!! They have 15 beers on tap and 6 wines, including Nobilio Sauvignon Blanc. The best view in Estes Park!!!

We arrived fairly late for dinner, approximately 9pm. I ordered a chicken pasta dish. The chicken was tough and dry as if cooked hours earlier. My daughter ordered lasagna. I understand this type of dish must be cooked ahead of time, however, if it was...More
