Restaurants in Estes Park run the gamut from good chow for cowboys and cowgirls, to a magnificent chef prepared service complete with views and ambiance. Fall is a spectacular time of year to come on up to the village of Estes Park; spend the day or spend a week. Without a doubt the splendor of our views alone are unmatched. Below is just a sampling of some of the best choices for dining in the Estes Valley.
Ed’s Cantina & Grill
Located in downtown Estes Park, Ed’s Cantina & Grill has been locally owned and operated since 1985. Freshened and remodeled recently, there’s a separate bar and an event room for parties.
Other Side Restaurant
Nestled by the Big Thompson River near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park, The Other Side Restaurant invites you to enjoy traditional all-American cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner: choice steaks, prime rib, lobster, crab, pasta, salads and daily Chef’s Specials.
Mama Rose’s Italian Restaurant
Mama Rose’s offers a casually elegant atmosphere without elegant prices, and a menu of traditional Italian favorites. Easy to find location downtown on the Riverwalk offers a wonderful, natural view of the Big Thompson River.
Casa Grande Mexican Restaurant
Casa Grande Mexican Restaurant specializes in the authentic Mexican dishes taught to us by our Grandmothers from central Mexico. The Gonzales Family started this restaurant in the early 90′s. Downtown on the river, stop in for a memorable margarita!
