Tavern 1929, situated inside of Marys Lake Lodge south of Estes Park, has a fabulous view over Marys Lake. If you can nab a seat on the patio, do it (and be sure to bring a jacket, even in summer)–the atmosphere is terrific.
The restaurant serves a good selection of standard American fare, and the food is quite good, if a little pricier than average for Estes.
Beer lovers will appreciate the 18 craft brewed beers and ciders on tap, which alone are worth the visit.
Live music is sometimes available, and between that, the food, and the views, this is a great spot for a nice dinner out on the town.
Reservations are recommended.
