Fabulous view from the patio, good service, a very tasty Ribeye and one of the best whisky collection I've ever seen and the owner actually knows a lot about every single bottle and brand. Although the decoration inside is very interesting, don't miss the patio.

We stayed next door at the Estes Park Resort, so this was, logistically, an easy choice. It was the food and great service that will bring us back during future visits. I ordered a cocktail that featured the new distillery to the area (Elkins) and the server explained every aspect of the company and the process by which they chose... More

Best decor in town. Very rustic, unique menu with lots of game options. Wild game sampler was really delicious and great way to try meats if you haven't had the opportunity before. Tried Buffalo Hanger steak and really meaty and tender with tons of flavor. NICE and friendly staff Loved it!

Definitely loved our meal. I had the green chile stew and a salad. My husband had the elk tenderloins and they were delicious. They served a warm bread as well. Nice selection of wines and happy hour is from 4-6pm for drinks.

Walking distance to our hotel, we had dinner at Hunters. Decor includes stuffed game on the walls and antler light fixtures. Both the bison and elk burgers were great and the beer-battered sidewinder fries were awesome.

Great flavors, a lot of bison, elk and wild game dishes. They have a variety of whiskey to choose from. My family proudly tried rattlesnake cakes and elk carpaccio! We were recommended this place at the visitor center and were not disappointed. Amazing interior with bear, elk and mountain lion. Next time I am in Estes Park, I will definitely... More

Bride and I are Estes regulars but had yet to try the Chop House. Sadly, it was a disappointment. We came for an early dinner (5'ish) and only one other couple was present, yet we had to wait, and wait for someone to come seat us...and then wait and wait for our server. She was pleasant enough but had no... More
