We found this place while staying just outside Estes Park and being frustrated with parking and crowds downtown. We ended up eating there three times, as well as breakfast on departure day. A pretty location on a pond with ducks and other birds, excellent waitstaff, and a varied menu with decent prices kept us going back. My favorite was the... More

Well would love to talk about how the food is but when we were seated at out table the first thing that was said is that your food is going to take at least 30 min. Now this was kind of a shock since they did not even ask us if we wanted something to drink the other part is... More

Out family ate at this restaurant a few times while staying in Estes Park. I must agree with other reviews that the service is just ok (or worse). Seems this place would rather serve locals than tourists. At least that is the vibe we got each time. Location is great for breakfast before heading into RMNP. Food is good. Overall... More

The "Other Side" restaurant is actually on the westside of Estes Park on Highway 36 at the junction of Mary's Lake Road. The location is convenient especially if your lodging is off Hwy. 66 or when you are coming from hiking in the Bear Lake or Cub Lake area. This restaurant has new ownership as of May, 2015. The new... More

This restaurant is located next to a complex which contained a nice souvenir store, grocery store and Laundromat. It was lunch time when I finished doing our laundry so we walked over to this restaurant. We were seated right away and our waiter was very attentive. I had a Monte Cristo sandwich which was almost more than I could eat... More

Ate there twice during a vacation week. Had a burger with black olives & mushrooms and on 2nd visit had a steak. Both were nicely prepared . The upper dining room is more casual while the lower is more formal with a view of a lake,ducks swimming by.

We were given a table downstairs. I asked for a table on the floor level because my father is disabled. We were told that section was closed but we could drive around to the other side of the restaurant where they had Handicapped Parking and could use the ramp. Really???? My dad has a disability and you want him to... More

This restaurant has 2 levels. the lower level only serves dinner, the upper level serves all three meals. We ate breakfast every morning, but the last 2. The food was very good. We ate dinner in the lower level one night. I was disappointed in that food. The lettuce in the salad was brown and our steaks were sub-par
