Apparently this is two restaurants - a diner/burger eatery and a more "fine dining" experience. Since I was there in the slow season, I was eating sandwiches and fries with a white tablecloth. They combine the two. The food was very good and the prices very reasonable. The dining area overlooks a small pond that was full of ducks. The... More

We ate breakfast Saturday morning at The Other Side. The service was excellent. The menu offered a variety of breakfast selections including elk and buffalo. I had the whole grain waffle and my husband had the western omlette with hash browns and a blueberry muffin. The atmosphere, food and service were very good.

We had the best meal we ever had at The Otherside. It is under new ownership and the food has reached a new level. The coffee and cocoa rubbed steak was to die for and the prime rib was so good with a fresh rosemary crust. Awesome. The trout was fried to perfection. Totally enjoyable.

We stopped here for breakfast based on our front desk person's recommendation and were not disappointed. Very good variety of breakfast foods and everything was very good. They also have a bit more formal dining room for dinner time that overlooks a small pond. Dinner menu looked interesting.

My family and I visited The Other Side Jan. 21st. Everyone was very friendly, and welcoming, from the hostess, Susan, to the outstanding server, Michaela. Food was brought promptly, and the selection was amazing. Will definitely return soon. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

Have eaten here a few times and have had great service and even better meals. Especially nice in the winter when it's not crowded, but have never had to wait long to be seated regardless. Worth the stop!

On a whim we decided to try dinner here. We get to Estes Park frequently but never ate the Other Side. Our dinner was excellent. Nice wine list too. I had the rib eye steak, my wife the salmon. We ate in the upscale side with views of the mountains and a pond behind the restaurant. Service was good, One... More

Very unique restaurant with two offerings: Fine dining by the Lakeside and a more modest café. We opted for the lakeside based upon recommendations from another local Boulder couple we met in the park. We were not disappointed. My prime rib was prepared very well as was my wife's trout. This is fine dining with a fabulous view - a... More

We went there for the Seafood Buffet. Pleasantly surprised how fresh everything seemed. Your crab legs did not get cooked until you wanted them....a plus!!!
