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.

Nice view of a little pond with ducks. Trout was disappointing - not much taste and over cooked. Service was quick and friendly. Overpriced for a little roadside cafe. I suppose the location just before the entrance to Rocky Mountain Park is their draw.

I have eaten here many times and would say the food is consistenly OK and probably one of the better places to eat in Estes Park. Truthfully I can't remember anything outstanding here.

We found this restaurant by accident. Its on Morraine avenue on the left heading out to RMNP. We fell in love with the food and service/ Laura, the hostess greeted us each time and made us feel at home. The food is incredible. The Elk rueban and club sandwich is fantastic. Also try the Chorizo sausage skillet for breakfast. The... More

We ate breakfast here when we stayed last month. The food was amazing and the wait staff was so kind. We will definitely be back.
