Surrounded by the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, the Twin Owls Steakhouse is Estes Park’s premiere fine dining destination. We are tucked away just to the north of the rush and bustle of downtown Estes Park. The rough-hewn logs, broad-plank hardwood floors, moss rock fireplaces and the rustic charm of a 90 year-old log cabin are joined with all the amenities of a modern restaurant in each of our three dining rooms. Our menu has been carefully crafted to please the entire family, and includes a broad selection of steaks, wild game and seafood, along with a kids’ menu and an irresistible dessert selection. We also offer an extensive wine list, local craft beers and hand-crafted cocktails.

We had a lovely evening with my parents visiting from out of town. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. Really beautiful view at the table window of the sunset and an Elk who decided to join us all.

We were early and was seated promptly. Everything was great. Savannah , our server, was nice and recommended our wine and helped us with entree orders. My girlfriend’s 50th bday. So overall great experience!

For the last six years, we have been going to Twin Owls at the current location. This time the food was okay. In our party, we had the duck breast which was dry, hamburger was okay with a dry bun, salmon salad was soggy, and prime rib was dry and looked liked yesterday’s. Overall it was disappointing. Probably won’t go to the new location. Thank you for all of the other wonderful times at the lodge.

Great ribeye steak, wonderful service, great setting. Lots of crowd noise but the guitar was perfect. My only concern is that the veggies were practically raw and the potatoes were overdone. The brocholli was tough and inedible.

Went there for our 41st anniversary and requested the table for two in the balcony. It was great. The prime rib was as good as ever and the service (Sergio) was fantastic. A very special evening.

service and food was terrible particularly for a restaurant with such a high local rating. Filet mignon was chewy and overcooked by 2X. The lamb was overcooked. This restaurant is dated and a complete waste of time and money.

Please pick up dirty dishes before bring next course. Take offf wine glasses that are not used. Ambiance is great. Asked for medium rare. Meat I received meat that was well done. We returned the meat. When cooking meal. They should get it right first time. When you are paying 40-50 dollars should get it right. Longtime to wait

The duck and elk kabob appetizers are wonderful. The ribeye was decent. The prime rib was probably our least favorite thing about the meal, ordered medium but there was no pink. The desserts were good. The reviews others posted about only seeing wait staff to take order and bring food, no wine refills or check ins are accurate but we were ok with that. Bus boy did a good job clearing empty plates and filling waters.

We arrived to park and the handicap parking was not available and the only other parking spaces were up the hill. My friend went in and asked what we should do, we had reservations and didn’t want to leave. This nice man came out and offered to park my car, brought keys back and said he would get it when we were done dining. Found out later he was the owner! What great service! Food was delicious. Service a bit slow, but the restaurant was packed. Ala and all, a great experience!

For service and ambience it is perfect! We had not been here for 2 years and were so excited to return. Sadly, my ribeye was thin and very gristley and fatty and not too much flavor. My husband’s prime rib did not have much flavor and edible portion was quite small though ordered as an 8 oz. size. Side vegetables which were different were not cooked enough. Excellent large portion of creme brulee. We dine and travel in many regions and had such great memories of this place that we were so disappointed. Fortunately we had a delightful and attention waitress!

The McGregor Filet was excellent. Beautifully plated with an assortment of al dente vegetables. Our Server was attentive, but not intrusive. A medical emergency occurred at a near by table and the restaurant was extremely busy. The serving team remained focused on their customers while concerned for the well being of the ill person. Great job!

Our dinner was fabulous, and our server Yogyese was outstanding! We both ordered the filet mignon and they were cooked perfectly! The roasted rosemary potatoes were delicious too. The fresh vegetable mix (white asparagus, red peppers, green beans) would have been excellent, but the vegetables were very undercooked so we weren't able to enjoy them. Our server was very attentive and a super nice guy! There was an acoustic guitar musician playing background music in a beautiful mountain view dining room. Highly recommend Twin Owls while visiting Estes Park!

We had an OpenTable reservation and arrived a bit early. We were seated right in front of the kitchen door. Then asked to move. The place was not that busy. Overpriced pasta dish and lobster was not so great.

Restaurant is rustic with lots of charm. Server lacked personality and was not very informative or approachable food was pretty basic. Best thing was the bread and olive oil and seasoning they bring you. The lady who refilled waters was great, nice, and seemed to like being there. We had the filet macgregor and the elk medallions. Vegetable medley was not cooked long enough.

Our 4th or 5th time at Twin Owls. We love taking our out of state visitors there as a great finish to a day of mountain exploring and shopping in Estes Park. Very good service. Couple of forks had tiny bits of dried food on them this visit, but that was the only negative I found. Otherwise worth the trip. Bring $ as it is a tad pricey (very worth it though)!!

The appetizer (scallops) and salad (wedge) was very, very good. The steak was horrible! Something you would find at a 9.99 buffet. The prime rib came with some sort of mashed potatoes that were unedible. The Ribeye was very, very thin and over cooked with a lot of fat on it. On a good note our waiter was excellent and made the evening very nice for us. The entrees are WAY overpriced. Especially for what you get.

Hidden gem in Estes Park that we found on Open Table. It’s up from downtown with a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains. Has a great log cabin, fine dining but casual atmosphere. Loved the craft cocktails and the steaks both regular and specialty game me bison and elk.
