We live about 45 minutes from Estes and were celebrating the fact we just found our wedding venue so we went to lunch on a quiet Monday afternoon in January. I have eaten at so many of my favorite restaurants that I decided to give a new one a try. After all it was on my gluten free app and... More

I stood at the entrance to what is a very long narrow restaurant. Finally, the owner came up and seated me at the far end. I was the only customer in the place. He was the only employee there today. He was sullen and borderline unfriendly. I felt extremely uncomfortable. I ordered a Reuben sandwich and a Coke. The Reuben... More

Had dinner over the Thanksgiving weekend. I think the weekend festivities at Estes Park end up creating near summertime level crowds without the staff to handle the business. It took longer than I would have liked to be served, but the food was very good. Overpriced cocktail was a poor investment. I'll be willing to give this place another try.

Food was great and so wasn't the service... loved the peppermint patty and French onion soup... could have used some more heat

With the menu being very diverse on options I thought we would really have a great family meal. The service was decent enough. However when we all got our food I wasn't that impressed. My son and I had the pasta and the sauce just didn't have that much flavor. I think our experience was average and the food definitely... More

Food was dry and bland. Waitress was terrible. She was terse and rude. This person is really in the wrong job. The food was terrible. I ordered the trout. It was very dry and tastless.

I forgot about the Wild Rose! What a pleasant surprise to eat there, especially since we were able to use a coupon we got on restaurants.com...that helped us splurge on everything from appetizers to dessert. You can tell the food is made with real, tasteful ingredients and the chef takes pride in his food. I especially enjoyed the German look... More

The staff are very welcoming. They have been pleasant, helped in lunch selection. The food was great, tasty and the presentation was excellent. I have tasted (visited several times during my stay) their soups, steaks and some salads with salmon. Warmly recomend!

We arrived amidst shopping for a "quick" bite. My first taste of a buffalo burger was quite unsatisfactory. The meat was dry and without flavor. My friend's "lime ginger" chicken also was dry and had no lime or ginger flavor whatsoever. Service was poor. It took FOREVER to be waited on and it was fairly busy but not enough for... More

My husband got jaegerschnitzel and he was in heaven!! Came... More
