Ended up getting lighter dinner and Cesar salad cost me a lot more than I would care to spend. Average at best.

We came in for a late lunch on Thanksgiving Day. Surprised to find a tasty veggie sandwich, which was a lot like a veggie cheese steak. The fries were the best I've had...not too greasy and perfectly seasoned. The others in my party had the trout and loaded baked potato, respectively, which they reported were excellent. The server was amiable... More

OMG that burger tasted soooo good!! I was so impressed, I would get that again in a heartbeat. A tad expensive but so worth it. It came with fries, and not the mickie'd kind. These were also so very good! You need to try them.

Very friendly and efficient service. Lots of different wild game selections. We tried the Rattlesnake chips and wild game sampler (boar, elk, pheasant, and bison). Very good way to sample game. We tried the... More

Absolutely amazing atmosphere and the food was spot on. The sampler allows your taste buds to explore all the wonderful game from this area. My wife had the ribeye and it was comparable to some of the higher end steak houses of Texas. I had the elk medallions and I am able to say they now a top favorite food.... More

A place where a lot of locales were. The dinner menu had several items, but because we were in Elk country, I tried the Elk dish and found it was very tender and better tasting than Beef. Worth the try especially if you are staying at Estes Park Resort (next to it)

Had a lovely meal here while in Estes Park. The food and service were excellent, and I would say average value for money. However, they let themselves down massively with their tipping policy. The menu clearly stated that 18% service charge would be added to groups of 6 or more. There were 2 of us, but the 18% was still... More

Make reservations but they were very accommodating when we didn't have any. Food is very good. Lots of wildlife mounts around makes for a pleasant atmosphere.
