“Breakfast was out of this world good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 February 2010

They have a varied menu, which I found refreshing. There are the old standbys but some jazzed up choices as well. I thought the price was fair, the food excellent, and the servers enjoyable. It is a very nice place with great food. This was the only place we ate at for breakfast during our stay in Estes Park, but I can't imagine it could be beat.

“Great Trout”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 September 2009

We ate here in July. My wife loved the trout, so we ate here twice when we returned in September. Service was reasonable The prices are reasonable. We will eat here again the next time we are in Estes Park.

“Good place to eat”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2009

We ate breakfast and dinner at the restaurant. Both times we used a buy one get one free coupon from a local paper. The food was good and the staff take good care of us.

“The food wasn't horrible”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2009

Take my word for it and try another place. Very slow and the place is a hole in the wall. The food was decent, but hardly worth the wait, and the crappy surroundings. On a positive note: you do get a decent amount of food for the money.

“Isn't worth the money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2009

For years we have enjoyed coming to Estes Park and until this year always had a great meal. This time however, the food we received was almost inedible. The lettuce in the salads was wilted, the bread was stale and the meals themselves lacked any real flavor. I am not sure if they have a new chef or not, but whatever the change was it was horrible. I will not be back unless I hear that they have returned to their previous standards.
