"Our family of five made a reservation for dinner for after our afternoon exploring RMNP and we had an awesome meal. We enjoyed the apps, the vegetable duck soup was so tasty, and my husband’s ribeye was huge and tender. I ordered the cheese ravioli and shrimp and it was some of the best food I’ve had out in a long time. We enjoyed the old lodge vibes and scenic view. We loved relaxing with some wine and food and letting the kids play by the river after dinner. It was a wonderful meal. It was not cheap, but we felt the the food, service, and ambiance were worth the price. The restaurant requires masks and was seating at a reduced capacity, which made us feel better about dining out while on our cabin/national park getaway. I’d recommend a reservation, as seating is limited."... ...more
