Amazing food, perfectly prepared. Excellent service. A beautiful restaurant with views of Lake Estes. We visited twice on our 1 week vacation because it was so good. Try the Elk chops with Shrimp Scampi, the Beef Tenderloin or the Barramundi

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.

The three of us had a very good dinner. Trout and Salmon were excellent. Elk tenderloin was tasty but not entirely as tender as expected. Potato and asparagus sides were delicious. Server did a great job. Will go back and recommend.

Overall had a pleasant experience. Restaurant temperature fluxtuated and made for a chilly meal. Food was as expected and tasty, well prepared, unfortunately was tepid. Hard to fault the restaurant as pandemic procedures undoubtedly present problems that the staff handled well, and I believe contributed to any deficiencies. Would recommend and will also return in the future.

The trout was outstanding the steak tasty as well. The hit was the sampler wild game starter. Service was attentive in a laid back atmosphere with a nice cabin touch. Take note of the impressive wildlife you dine with! This is a great VALUE restaurant with a solid star rating.

Service was somewhat inattentive. Didn't ask if we wanted 2nd drink or dessert. Didn't offer steak sauce. Online reservation asked if it was special occasion. Wedding anniv. Nothing done. Why ask?

Loved the Game Appetizer. Main plates were great too. Except fish and chips, the fish was a bit salty. The only thing we did not like was the speed. We were still eating our appetizer when they brought the main dish. I don’t like to rush my food and we asked to hold the main course. They reacted well and brought the main course later.

The restaurant was very nice, and the steaks tasted perfect. The only thing I would of changed was our detached waiter. He was polite, but lacked common sense when it came to our food( he kept grabbing our plates half eaten.) Didn't know he had a lineup of customers ahead of us.

The ribeye was supposed to be medium rare, but was over cooked and no flavor. (There were a few pink spots.) It was also way over priced. The salad and salmon were delicious! The atmosphere was great! We appreciated being able to make a reservation!

no complaints on food, finally a restaurant that does not overcook asparagus... however, would be a nice touch if the simple act of offering a salad fork with the salad would then keep dirty tableware off the table while waiting for main course. that is a pet peeve for me in restaurants without linen or paper coverings over laminate tables.
