Housed in a building dating back to 1908, The Grubsteak Restaurant is rich in local history and maintains a character true to the region. Having once been a bowling alley, a hospital, and a beauty parlor, among others, these walls that tell a storied past now house some of the best burgers and steaks in the area.
The Grubsteak Restaurant is popular with both locals and travelers alike and is tucked along a quaint row of other businesses in the heart of Estes Park’s main thoroughfare. The interior of this eatery reveals the building’s history through photos and memorabilia that line the walls. Take a seat in the front dining room or family pub room, or when the weather is nice, enjoy the breeze on the outdoor covered patio.
The Grubsteak Restaurant’s Menu
The lunch menu is available until 5pm, and here you will find a surprisingly large array of burger options. While many restaurants offer topping selections, at The Grubsteak Restaurant the choice is yours as to what kind of meat you’d like to comprise your burger. Choose among exotic options such as yak, elk, buffalo, and duck and enjoy your burger alongside fries, potato salad, or coleslaw. Start your meal off with an order of shrimp cigars, comprised of shrimp, cream cheese, garlic, spices, and white wine, rolled into an eggroll wrapper, fried, and served with a side of homemade teriyaki orange sauce before moving on to the wild game burger of your choice. Aside from burgers, The Grubsteak also offers a selection of sandwiches, ribs, steaks, and salads. On the dinner menu, more wild game options abound with choices such as elk or buffalo sirloin, elk shepherd’s pie, and wild game meatloaf.
Wash it all down with a cold one, ordering from a menu that features the largest selection of Colorado microbrews in Estes Park. Margaritas and other cocktails and wines are also available.
