My ladyfriend and I wanted to get together after not seeing each other for a while and chose this as it is a nice restaurant (kind of like the kind you would take your grandma to) and enjoyed the view of the trees etc. while eating. The food was ordinary, and did not come out of the kitchen in a... More

Would definitely return. My whole family enjoyed the food. The server was a liitle too busy, but was pleasant and polite. My husband got a breakfast skillet which was delicious. My daughter loved the breakfast burrito. Good diner type food.

The breakfast is delicious with very fresh ingredients.....and I go there regularly and love the menu choices.....always had a wonderful experience! I highly recommend the Sunday brunch or just ordering off the menu either is great....it's a nice place for two or a group...but definitely make reservations....it's a win win for breakfast, lunch or dinner! Enjoy!

We stopped in here because other places were full and there is a reason why, our service was good but not very knowledgable of the menu items. The whole downstairs upstairs menu is wired and confusing when you enter. Above all our group had 4 different entree's and all were very bland.

Great breakfast before heading to Trail Ridge Road. We like the trout, and ingredients are really flesh.

I recommended this as a place to eat with family and was very disappointed. Had been there several times in the past, most recently two years ago. Still a nice setting, but was surprised to find it almost empty, now I know why. The service was mediocre and the food worse. The cocktails we ordered did not come out until... More

Great restaurant with a nice variety of meals. Situated close to the entrance of Rocky Mountain National Park as well as adjoining stores and super market. Large windows with a view of the mountains, and adjoining pond and excellent place to have a meal and view wildlife including frequent visits by bull/cow and baby elk.

We dined here for both a dinner & breakfast while staying across the street at the Alpine Trail Ridge Inn. The views are beautiful, and the food was very good! The portions were good-sized. We had large groups for both meals, and the restaurant accommodated us very well!

We ate breakfast there on a Saturday morning in August. It's difficult to break this place down. It has amazing potential, but it is obviously so poorly managed that it's almost laughable. The other reviews mention poor service... the real issue is the server to table ratio, hosts and hostesses who aren't lending hands not helping push clients through, bus... More

Took our family of 4 here hoping for a relaxing sit down meal. Not so much the case. Took forever for our waitress to take our order. Then another 45 minutes to get our food. We didn't get anything fancy. Hot beef was cold and chewy. Other food was so so. We couldn't even find our waitresses to tell her... More
