We will open in May 2014 for the summer season! See you then!
The View Restaurant is open for dinner 7 days a week, 5pm to 9pm, from mid-May to mid-October.

Enjoy exceptional food in a casual fine-dining atmosphere. Overlooking Estes Park, The View Restaurant is named for it's spectacular view through its 90-foot wall of French pane windows. Decorated with the original Old Hickory Furniture Company tables and chairs Enoch "Joe" Mills purchased for the lodge in 1914, the View is the perfect place for a relaxing dinner.

Reservations are not necessary but always recommended.

Groups from 10 to 200 are welcome. We happily host association meetings, dinner dances, holiday parties, business lunches and other groups events year around.
