About Twin Owls Steakhouse
Surrounded by the grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, the Twin Owls Steakhouse is Estes Park’s premiere fine dining destination. Located on the grounds of the Black Canyon Inn, 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.

Twin Owls Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Food and service was very good. But after considerable research to find special valentine dining experience during a special trip to Colorado we got stuck in an overflow dining room. This room lacked any ambience. While the main dining that was exclusively featured on their website that had live guitarist and spectacular views we had staticky bar music and car headlights in our eyes. There were no flowers no special valentines decorations, simply seemed they opened area to accommodate extra guests. In hind sight seems hostesses hand picked who got seated in main dining room and who got relegated to the back room. Given we spent $200 for a couple and that we made this reservation weeks in advance we are sorely disappointed in the experience especially since we planned in advance. Shame on Twin Owls for treating us this way. They simply misrepresented their establishment and Valentines Day experience.
Appetizer (Baked Brie) was aweful, tasteless and undercooked. The Rib Eye steak was thin and over cooked, the potatoes were dried and other veggies were just ok. This is NOT a high-end cuisine restaurant or a steakhouse as they advertise it.
The wine list was pretty decent, I selected a bottle of Bordeaux 2010.
I would never go back to this restaurant.
This was our first trip to Twin Owls and we will be back! We were celebrating my husbands birthday and the service was wonderful - was wished Happy Birthday by all. They gave us a table overlooking the dining room which was beautiful. The food was fantastic - from the bread and olive oil mix to the bacon wrapped scallops and finally the bison steak my husband had to the elk medallions that I enjoyed. And there was live guitar music playing the whole time!! It was a great evening and again we will be back!
We took some friends from out of town here because it is such a special place. Appetizers were wonderful. French onion soup....exquisite. The scallops were awesome as were the elk tips. Everyone had steaks but myself. I tried the polenta/portabella dish but it was very disappointing. The flavors just did not meld together as I hoped. The presentation was also unappetizing. I should have known to order meat at a steakhouse. This will not deter us from bringing guests to enjoy Twin Owl at all. One of our favorite places in Estes.
Came here on a Fri nite for my husband's b/day. Expected better for $97 plus tip for dinner for two. Husband's prime rib was good; my roasted duck not. Bing cherry compote was fried to a curdle and duck was dry. My veggies looked good but they were cold. Our French Onion soup tasty. Place wasn't full so we were disappointed to be seated near the woman's bathroom. Table wobbled; tried to fix it ourselves, no could do. Management: you might want to fix that table. We did give the full 20 percent tip to our nice waitperson; she shouldn't be penalized for a somewhat lackluster dinner. Grade: B-
Mixed. I would give it 4 stars overall but my steak was average and under cooked even after describing to the server how I wanted it prepared. Had to send it back. Even cooked to my taste it was an average steak. Other aspects of the meal where fine. But the centerpiece of the meal disappointed. It is a "Steak House" so the expectation is high for the main course.
The restaurant did not disappoint! We started at the bar for a pre dinner cocktail. Thad, one of the owners, recommended a Scotch and wine that were both spot on! I had the Beef filet and my husband had the Bison filet. Both were perfectly cooked and delicious. The entire evening was wonderful! The restaurant, the Staff and the food was first class. If you are in town, this is a MUST VISIT restaurant!
I was sadly disappointed with the filet mignon, prime rib and ribeye. Poor meat quality,not cooked well and tasted like charcoal. The bread, salad and appetizer were good as well as the sides and dessert! Definitely not worth the high prices though. The service was fantastic from our waiter Val. He did everything he could to make us happy. Beautiful place.
We were disappointed in only one thing. When we made our reservation we were asked if we were celebrating any special occasions. We were in fact, making the trip to Estes Park to celebrate our 43 wedding anniversary. We shared this information when making the reservation. To our surprise when we arrived for dinner, not a single person at the restaurant mentioned of the anniversary celebration. Our disappointment stems not from the quality of food, service or value; it is clearly due to no mention of the anniversary celebration after asking when the reservation was made! We have been fortunate to have dined at numerous high quality restaurants across the country and have always been please to have special occasions recognized. Generally, this recognition has been a verbal acknowledgement of the event, which is more important than any special food items that some restaurants have offered. My advice to Twin Owls Steakhouse is simple - if you ask about special occasions when reservations are being made, acknowledge it upon arrival! It leaves a lasting impression, more so than a good meal at a reasonable price!!
