After the Hike: Local Favorites

Dunraven Inn You must get their special especially when it is fresh seafood! The muscles for an app were superb and an Irish coffee for dessert finished it off beautifully.
Sagebrush BBQ & Grill Feel free to bust a nut and leave it on the floor. In fact they encourage it.
1101 Grand Ave, Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-1404
Fat Cat Cafe Sat & Sun buffet has homemade desserts. Try it all, amazing!
916 Grand Ave., Grand Lake CO — (970) 627-0900
The Rock Inn Mountain Tavern Go forth and let all the people eat bacon wrapped, garlic stuffed dates
Sundeck Restaurant Best apple pie ever!
Baba's burgers, gyros & more Place looked deserted when I first pulled up(on a Friday afternoon) but I am glad I didn't let that deter me. Ordered an elk burger and fried zucchini. It was all delicious! Definitely recommend!
Smokin' Dave's BBQ & Taphouse Pulled pork was the best but so were the ribs, brisket, and bread pudding
Donut Haus Nothing Gluten Free. C'mon Donut Haus...get it together. For those of us who can't have gluten.
Big Horn Restaurant Blueberry pancakes -the best blueberry pancakes anywhere!
Wapiti Colorado Pub Wish I had come here sooner on my trip to Estes Park. Found fajitas as YUM! Nice staff, good authentic vibe.
The Grubsteak Restaurant Best burger I have ever had ! It was a Bourbon glaze and onion straw Yak burger. Amazing. Will come back everytime I'm in Colorado
Chicago's Best Ma and pa place. Very good.
Inkwell & Brew Exceptional atmosphere, exceptional coffee, exceptional people!
Nepal's Cafe Great food and exceedingly friendly!
La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill La Cabana Mexican Bar & Grill1
Claire's On The Park There may be a wait at other places, but you should probably just go to one of those other places and wait.
225 Park Ln, Estes Park CO — (970) 586-9564
Mama Rose's The house salad is excellent, perfectly dressed. The wait staff is A++. Prices are affordable - our bill for a family of four came to a little over $70 which inc. beers & desserts.
Poppy's Pizza & Grill Here with a large group? Don't worry about paying extra gratuity. Poppy's has a policy of not charging extra for a large party!
