Ian, our server, was exceptional! Learned a lot about my favorite drink -Old Fashioned- and I've been drinking that for over 50 years! He was professional, personable, funny, and one of the best my wife and I have experienced. Oh, and the food was excellent!

I would like to recognize the head hostess. He was exceptionally nice and helped a fellow customer pay me the honor of being a Vietnam Veteran, by buying me and my wife's dinner. This honor has never been given to me before since Vietnam War. Your hostess made it so the man did this without me knowing till I was ready to pay my bill. At first the hostess said he just wanted to buy me a beer for my service but latter I found out he bought both my wife's and mine dinner. Im very sure the man who did this so honorable juster was so glad to know have me thanking him so much for this honor. I know this doesn't seam like munch but to a service man that was booed and spit on when he returned from a war he was sent to by his country it means so much I cant say! If I could have paid him for helping in the task I would but he would have none of it! Instead he told me he and the rest of the staff thanks me for my service!! I am so indebted to him for his kindness! Michael L Frazier

Convenient to our hotel. Our server and staff friendly, attentive and clean. The food was prepared the way we wanted it. The serving sizes were abundant. Prices were fair for the type of food we ordered. Will visit again next time visiting Estes Park.

I brought my fiance here for Valentine's day and wasn't disappointed! Hannah was a wonderful server and the food was amazing! I had the elk chops with barley risotto and it is quite possibly the best meal I have ever had. Thank you Hannah and the Chop House for a wonderful Valentine's celebration!!!

Service was friendly, quick and professional. The menu had lots of options and the food was delicious and serving sizes very generous. The steaks were done exactly how we ordered them but the baked potato could have used another 20 minutes in the oven. We did not order any wine or cocktails, nor did we have any room left for dessert. I did get a look at the chocolate cake another table had and it looked decadent. Definitely need to make reservations as seating capacity is limited due to Covid restrictions. Great experience, give it a try!

Reservation system very easy. The ambiance in the dining area was perfect, made it feel like a true "Colorado" experience. Food was great with large portions. One suggestion I would make is to make sure the wait staff can explain the "specials". I inquired about the wine special that night and our waitress really had no information about the wine and couldn't explain it (it was a white wine). Other than that, great experience!

We had a very enjoyable meal. The food was excellent although the timing was off. The server should have taken and put in our food sooner but the kitchen might have been behind as well. We waited well over 30 minutes between receiving our appetizer and receiving our dinner. Luckily we were not in a hurry. Otherwise the server was very friendly and knowledgeable. The meal was worth the wait. Likely a free drink for the wait or something could have been offered.

We are locals and have been going to Hunters on average about once a week with friends or just the two of us for a number of years, all year round. The choices are wonderful and the food just keeps getting better and better with some very exciting new items to the menu. The bar tender is great and the service is always exceptional. The owners are so interested in keeping every patron happy, they work hard and their efforts have paid off. We love this place above all others.

We came here because we love wild game. The Elk tenderloin did not disappoint. Hannah, our server was excellent and explained the menu and choices very well. She checked back several times to be sure we were happy, excellent service. My only compliant (and not the restaurant's fault) was the number of crying children near our table. Other than that, it was a very nice experience.
