“Nothing to write home about...”
Reviewed 15 August 2011

I've been to this restaurant many times over the years, but the last three years i am consistently disappointed. At first I thought the bad food was a fluke, but the last three times we've been there one person in our party has missed out on eating with the rest of us. Our poor daugther seems to get left out the most often. They never know what happens to her order, but when we get our food, she doesn't get hers. Last time we waited, since they put a "rush" on it. We waited 20 minutes and her simple burger wasn't out tyet, meanwhile our food was getting cold. We finished eating and she was finally served. She was served the wrong meal after all this waiting and reordering. It was very disappointing. The server was VERY nice, but somewhere in the language barrier or the kitchen's ineptitude our orders have been consistently messed up. if the food were stellar it might be worth trying again, but during the last few visits the food has been mediocre at best.

“SO-SO..Too Many Other Good Restaurants in Estes Park..Why Bother”
Reviewed 14 August 2011

Our waitress was great, very personable and helpful. She was from Poland and loves Estes Park. The restaurant and view were blah. The water view was a basic duck pond and the restaurant decor was plain. The halibut was great with vegetables done just right, not over cooked. If the surroundings would have been better, this probably would be a great place. A little pricey, not for the food, but for the atmosphere.

“Absolutely terrible service”
Reviewed 13 August 2011

The staff was absolutely terrible to us at the Other Side restaurant. They took our reservations, 2 months in advance, but didn't bother writing it down so we didn't have a table.This was for a party of 15. They were very rude to us while we waited like it was our fault they didn't have our reservations. When we finally got our table, the service wasn't great either. They didn't offer free appetizers or free deserts or anything for their mistake. The food was overpriced and wasn't that great either. One of the worst restuarant experiences I have ever had.

“Good view, very average food, over priced.”
Reviewed 1 August 2011

First day in Estes Park so we gave it a try. Bad idea. We just ate there tonight and honestly it was a waste of money. The prime rib was cold, the cordon blue and the cashew chicken just didn't taste right. The coconut shrimp was pretty good but again kind of cold and the vegetables were overcooked. With tax our bill was almost $100 and we wished we'd have gone to McDonalds.
