Great soup and salad with dessert. Recommend the drive for any occasion.
Wonderful rustic ambiance, a limited (soup, salad, breads, cheese etc) menu that they do really well. And, at least when we were there, a charming waiter who was a Serbian college student in a summer work and travel gig.
This historic inn and restaurant is a joy. Amazing views, fascinating hummingbirds, lovely salads and soups, and PIE! A requirement for every vacation to the area.
Wonderful Quiet location!
Limited menu.....Soup and salad, Great Corn Bread!
The Baldpate is such a special place. Beautiful location, fascinating history, yummy food and warm staff. Try to go there every year, especially when friends who aren't from CO are visiting.
Our server was very nice, however, he didn't come around to take our used plates or fill our tea without being asked. Other than that he was fine. Great dining experience. P.S. The cherry pie was a little tart.
Charming, charming, charming. We found the Baldpate as a way to get out of downtown Estes Park crowds on a weekend trip to Rocky Mountain National Park. What a joy this place is. It is a soup and salad buffet with fresh baked bread and friendly service. The cream of mushroom soup was light and full of flavor with a variety of different mushrooms. The salads were fresh with an excellent variety of ingredients to choose from. They offered a buffalo hunters stew that smelled amazing, so even ardent meat eaters will be happy here. The breads and muffins were wonderful. Excellent flavor and the soft, chewy texture of the best homemade baked goods. A very well curated beer and wine list compliments the simple but delicious food choices. The fresh pies are not to be missed. We normally aren't much for sweets, but these are the sort of pies that will conjure up memories of days gone by, that your grandmother would have made and set in the windowsill to cool.
Cassidy, our server is a lovely young lady who was very attentive and friendly.
This is topped off by the fact that all of this is in the backdrop of a 100 year old inn that has character oozing from every well worn wooden floor board. There is the Key Room. You just have to experience it yourself. The views- well, you are in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado. Just splendid. I could not think of a better way to have spent our dinner time last night. I am very thankful that Denver is just a short drive away so we can come back often to this gem of a place.
I love the atmosphere! But I have to say - a salad bar & ice tea I don't know how they justify the price!!!
Has gotten worse over the years.
This was the most pleasant surprise in Estes Park. We were most happy with the food, the old, old building and especially the key collection!
This is location that's very much worth the time to find. A lot of history.
