Others here have done a good job of describing the atmosphere(old & neglected). It reminded me of a hundred different bars spread throughout Rocky Mountain ski towns (was there one person designing these during the 90s). They know you're only there for a few days and then gone most likely to never to return, so they don't try very hard. That, and for most of the year they're empty.
I liked the idea of checking out the equipment from the balcony, however all the lights were out so I looked down on darkness.
Food was pricey and waaaay below par(ok, it was freezer to microwave to plate hell). Beer...not the best. $4.50 pints ($8.50 and you keep the glass). $9 sixers to go.
In a land of craft beer giants you have to try harder.

The overall lineup was not awesome but the barleywine was quite impressive. I would return if they get better food! Maybe it is an enditement of the food industry as a whole i dont know. Every restaurant needs to try just a bit harder, because you cannot get a good bite to eat in all of estes park colorado and it is a low down dirty shame.
