This appears to be an iconic restaurant in Estes Park but the food and service was only average. While the menu was broad, we thought the food was merely okay and the atmosphere "busy."

We wish we'd lived up to your expectations, Charles. The quality of our menu and service is something we take a lot of pride in, and it's disappointing to hear we didn't wow you this time around. That said, I hope you'll give us another chance the next time you're in Estes Park -- I'm confident we can deliver a... More

We visited twice while in Estes Park. The food was wonderful and the service was great. We had seafood and pasta, both were amazing.

Two visits in one vacation? That's just what we like to see! We want you to feel like you wouldn't change a thing about the time you spend here, so we're thrilled you were a fan of everything from pasta to the service. Looking forward to welcoming you back the next time you're in Estes Park. Cheers, Andy More

Just visited with a large group for a wedding rehearsal dinner. Although we had to wait a bit to be seated, the staff was wonderful and handled the group with ease. Everyone enjoyed their entree, including fish, chicken and beef dishes.

Wonderful meal and very nice staff. One of the members in our party mis-ordered (not the restaurant's fault), and they were incredibly accommodating.

We ate here our first night in Estes Park and enjoyed it so much we went back the next night. We had trout the first night and haddock the second. The trout, cooked in a parchment paper, was our definite favorite. Service was excellent as was the ambiance.

The hostess politely offered us the next table, or we could eat at the bar, that has about six spaces available. We sat at the bar for drinks and calamari, then decided... More

Estes park has a lot of restaurants for the size of the town but nothing I would call, "fine dining" Dunraven kept coming up when we asked where to have a special "wife's birthday" dinner.

Walking into the Dunraven Inn you are met with walls covered in dollar bills. Thousands of dollar bills. What a great tradition, and when the dollars get ragged they go to charity. We ate in the bar area which is where the walls are covered (and we added one). Service was friendly, attentive and excellent! Get a reservation and I'm... More
