"YUMMMMY - Great place to eat! We ate here twice during our stay and loved it both times. The macaroni is fantastic and the portabella stuffed raviolis are the best! For dessert I recommend the chocolate molten lava cake. The service was great as well and the view of Lake Estes is spledid!"  - Marlena H. Murray, IA

"Excellent brunch. We went to the Sunday brunch today. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Everything was delicious and well presented. Selections included prime rib, omelettes to order and bread pudding. We'll go back."  - Tiz56, Loveland, CO

"The staff in the bar and restaurant were excellent, especially serving a group of 17. James, one of the bartenders, was particularly accommodating. Food in the restaurant was quite good with an interesting menu, an improvement over our previous visit a few years ago." RanLady via Tripadvisor, Overland Park, KS

"I have previously been to Estes Park at the Waterfront Grille with my family, but on a girls get-a-way we knew we had to stop back! The view is by far the BEST in town. We sat right in front of the window sipping our beverages, enjoying our meal and loving every minute of it. A few of US had the "build your own" sandwich, love the idea. I had chicken, my friend had a burger and we got to put exactly what we wanted on it! Bacon is the best tasting bacon I have ever eaten and the Pretzel bun was awesome!! Server was smiling and friendly too! Definitely making sure we enjoyed our visit and we did! Been here a few times & will be back again!" Heather Collins

"This was our third stay over the weekend at the Estes Park resort. We did not know that they would be so busy. During our stay just in one day they had three weddings. One morning we had breakfast at the third floor ,place what is called mezzanine I guess, and the food and service was excellent like always. Ilona- the restaurant manager recognized us right away, and accommodated us, treated us like VIP'S. This is one of the reason why we come back all the time here. Staff is very friendly and they want to please. Dinner time the restaurant was back where is usual. I do not know how they managed to move everything back so fast ! The atmosphere was just great !!!. They had a piano player what added even more to our experience. Food was excellent ! I had the rib eye, my wife the lamb, and the kids both the beef stroganoff. Our server was Rachel, she did ok. I still wonder how this people managed everything to be good, food to come in time, and having so many things going on. Our pleasure was that Ms. Spangler , who was talking to other tables and customers had time to stop by our table and ask us how our dinner is going. I was reading the other reviews, and I do not understand from were this people are coming from. Our experience was great all the time, staff was great all the time, we will be back. For us, was always a five star experience." bikerdude93 via Tripadvisor, Laramie, WY

"My husband & I along with 6 grandchildren ranging from age 8-18 had Sunday Brunch on 8/4/2013. Ilana, the manager was so accommodating for the younger children. The Prime Rib and the Salmon was totally delicious. The salad was so fresh and crisp. We also enjoyed the desserts. We were quite concerned when we walked in as no one was dining we almost walked out thinking it had to be a bad restaurant since it was empty. I'm sure glad we didn't. All the children loved it also." Shirley M, Branson West, MO

"I loved this restaurant. I'm a vegetarian and they had a veggie burger option which is sometimes pretty rare. They also had pretzel buns which were so yummy! I also loved the fresh cut fries. They were perfectly cooked and salted lightly. But i have to say, my favorite part of this restaurant was the service. When we walked in we were not greeted by a host, but the bar tender, William, came right over to us and offered us a table. We sat outside on the beautiful lake front property. We were facing the mountains and water. It was absolutely stunning. After seating us he took our orders and the food arrived promptly. He was server, bartender, and host to all incoming patrons. He was on top of everything too, he made sure our drinks were full the whole time unlike a lot of waiters, and he even made me a special birthday shot! He also told us about lots of promotions the restaurant was holding. We will most definitely be back! " Katie G, Durango, CO
