Best decor in town. Very rustic, unique menu with lots of game options. Wild game sampler was really delicious and great way to try meats if you haven't had the opportunity before. Tried Buffalo Hanger steak and really meaty and tender with tons of flavor. NICE and friendly staff Loved it!

Definitely loved our meal. I had the green chile stew and a salad. My husband had the elk tenderloins and they were delicious. They served a warm bread as well. Nice selection of wines and happy hour is from 4-6pm for drinks.

Walking distance to our hotel, we had dinner at Hunters. Decor includes stuffed game on the walls and antler light fixtures. Both the bison and elk burgers were great and the beer-battered sidewinder fries were awesome.

Good food, GREAT fish 'n chips! Elk was good too! It could offer even more game, but good food overall!

Great flavors, a lot of bison, elk and wild game dishes. They have a variety of whiskey to choose from. My family proudly tried rattlesnake cakes and elk carpaccio! We were recommended this place at the visitor center and were not disappointed. Amazing interior with bear, elk and mountain lion. Next time I am in Estes Park, I will definitely... More

Bride and I are Estes regulars but had yet to try the Chop House. Sadly, it was a disappointment. We came for an early dinner (5'ish) and only one other couple was present, yet we had to wait, and wait for someone to come seat us...and then wait and wait for our server. She was pleasant enough but had no... More

Off season in Estes... I get it. However, the service was horrible and we saw our waitress maybe twice. She barely spoke English which is probably why our steaks were raw, then recooked until overcooked. The veggies and potatoes tasted like cafeteria food, the salad was not a salad. Although we did not eat any of it and sent the... More

Visited for lunch and liked the rustic atmosphere! We selected a booth by the fireplace and had the chili and tried the wild game burger. Pork chili was spicy and the burger was dry.

Ended up getting lighter dinner and Cesar salad cost me a lot more than I would care to spend. Average at best.

We came in for a late lunch on Thanksgiving Day. Surprised to find a tasty veggie sandwich, which was a lot like a veggie cheese steak. The fries were the best I've had...not too greasy and perfectly seasoned. The others in my party had the trout and loaded baked potato, respectively, which they reported were excellent. The server was amiable... More
