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!!!

I was here with Family on Christmas Night and it was just about the only thing open. There was a wind/snow storm blowing so I did not get a chance to appreciate the view. The service was ok, since it was a packed house that night. I had a spinach salad which was good, but do not go for the... More

Enjoyed a nice Sunday Brunch on New Years day at The Other Side. The staff were very nice and atmosphere was very relaxed and enjoyable. The view- AMAZING. The breakfast selection was large and honestly I wish I was able to taste everything. We will definitely be going back. Side note: Hubby says the Parmesan Cod is amazing.

We found out about The Other Side from TripAdvisor and decided to check it out for breakfast. Their website displayed their breakfast menu which was great to check out before we went there. We were offered a window seat upon arrival so we could view the snow fall. Our waitress was friendly, efficient and could tell we were enjoying a... More

A reasonably priced restaurant right on the River. We were there in December, so it was all frozen over, but very beautiful. The Elk came down to visit, so very interesting dinner!

Sorry, something was missing ! Despite the pond and mountain wonderful view of ducks and trees, the food was bland. Very kind server, gave many recomendaciones, but I expected a tad higher quality. I would probably go again with tourist for the view!

We have been to Estes Park many many times but never for Thanksgiving. The variety, presentation and quality of the food was outstanding. Be prepared for the bill though - for three of us (one child) all drinking water (no alcohol) it was $96. Reservations are highly recommended. There were a LOT of people there.

Thank LS679
