Review


We had reservations for 4 people and were seated after only a short wait. The restaurant was pretty crowded, so if you have any Covid concerns, this may not be the best restaurant choice in Estes park.

Our server was very good; she was friendly, answered all of our questions about dietary concerns, and provided the right amount of attention without being intrusive.

This restaurant has a very good wine selection with a number of European and North American choices at a wide range of prices. We ordered an Italian Sangiovese that was excellent for the $37 a bottle price. We ordered another half bottle and enjoyed every sip!

My partner had the Colorado lamb T-bone, and I had the Frontier trout, and the others ordered Buffalo burgers. The lamb was a little rarer than his medium request, but was tender and delicious. The trout dish was very good, but the garlic overwhelmed the flavors of the fish; the trout was cooked perfectly. Both burgers were great.

We've found that meats in this part of Colorado are served rarer than in other parts of the country, so our recommendation is to order meat more cooked than what you want. For example, if you want your meat medium rare, order it medium

GF is identified on the menu. They offer a GF bun for the burgers, but I didn't try one.
