My wife and I caught a late lunch at this restaurant. It was good and the waitress did her job well. I would like to have tried the fish tacos, but we arrived too late and they were sold out. My advice is to get there before 1:30 if you want to chose from all the daily lunch specials.

We visited Estes Park and luckily found this restaurant. The breakfast is great and the prices are reasonable. You must try one of the breakfast skillets. They are served on cast iron skillets and are fantastic. The coffee is hot fresh and they keep it filled. Elk can be seen walking the trail and the duck pond was a hit... More

We ate in the casual side and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The food was very good and the people were genuinely friendly, not just a fake smile,. We ate there twice.

We wanted a restaurant with great food and atmosphere and The Other Side did not disappoint. At first it looked like a diner in the front but the restaurant has two menus. For the more expensive menu you get to sit in their duck pond dining room which was perfect for our night out in Estes Park. We didn't look... More

Good to visit to get breakfast done. Since we were staying across the street at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn, it was a no-brainer to stay here. During each of the 3 mornings we visited, the staff was a one-woman crew. Surprisingly, the wait wasn't too bad.

There are two levels of restaurants--one less expensive (in the front) and one more expensive (in the back). Make a reservation for the back and by a window. The view is beautiful and as I remember several years ago it was very good food. This time we ate in the front. The two guys had an Elk Burger and a... More
