The Other Side Restaurant

Pond at The Other Side Restaurant

Editor’s note: Sadly, The Other Side closed suddenly in late 2019.

The Other Side Restaurant, located in the National Park Village, is really two restaurants in one.

Upstairs is a very casual café type restaurant, serving sandwiches, burgers, and the like.

Downstairs is a more substantial restaurant offering steak, seafood, pasta, and salads. The downstairs restaurant features a large stone fireplace, a bar area, and lovely views of their pond, which is home to an assortment of ducks and geese almost year round.

You can order off either menu, regardless of where you sit. The food is reliably good, though not outstanding.

The Other Side is known for its Sunday Brunches, and its monthly Seafood and Mexican Buffets. It’s also a good choice for groups–in addition to the restaurant, they have a large room that can accommodate 175 guests.

The restaurant has both ample parking and ample seating, so the wait here is generally shorter than at many other restaurants in Estes Park.

The National Park Village complex is located near the main entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park and also houses a grocery store, gift shop, laundromat, gas station, and liquor store.
