We stopped here for lunch taking a break in shopping. We had an Elk Burger, and it was delicious! The cooked it just right, and it was very tasty. They have a big menu with lots of selections, so it should be easy to find something to delight.

Stopped in for lunch and we all had the bison burgers and fries. They were perfectly cooked and the veggies were all fresh and delicious. This upstairs diner offers a view of the busy sidewalk if you like to people-watch as you eat.

We stopped in for lunch and we all ordered buffalo burgers in some form. They were very good and the fries were awesome! We had great seats that overlooked the street and shops for a little people-watching and also had very good service. It was fairly pricey for a burger and a beer, but I would eat there again and...

My family and I ate here for lunch and we were a little concerned since some of the reviews were negative. I'm glad that didn't keep us away! I had the beer batter fish and chips and it was fabulous. The coleslaw was some of the best I have ever had. My husband had the buffalo burger and he enjoyed... More

I had the beer battered fish. The fish was very good. I loved the coleslaw. I think it's the best I've had. Even the french fries were tasty. My husband had the bison burger and he liked it. The service was good. I would recommend this place.

We live about 45 minutes from Estes and were celebrating the fact we just found our wedding venue so we went to lunch on a quiet Monday afternoon in January. I have eaten at so many of my favorite restaurants that I decided to give a new one a try. After all it was on my gluten free app and... More

I stood at the entrance to what is a very long narrow restaurant. Finally, the owner came up and seated me at the far end. I was the only customer in the place. He was the only employee there today. He was sullen and borderline unfriendly. I felt extremely uncomfortable. I ordered a Reuben sandwich and a Coke. The Reuben... More

Had dinner over the Thanksgiving weekend. I think the weekend festivities at Estes Park end up creating near summertime level crowds without the staff to handle the business. It took longer than I would have liked to be served, but the food was very good. Overpriced cocktail was a poor investment. I'll be willing to give this place another try.

With the menu being very diverse on options I thought we would really have a great family meal. The service was decent enough. However when we all got our food I wasn't that impressed. My son and I had the pasta and the sauce just didn't have that much flavor. I think our experience was average and the food definitely... More
