Great Food and Location posted 11/5/2013 (modified 11/6/2013)

The food here was amazing but even better was the atmosphere. The steakhouse was rustic and romantic with the great fireplace in the loft upstairs. Everyone enjoyed dining here.

great reception! posted 8/28/2013

We had our wedding reception at Twin Owls and could not have been happier. We had a great experience from the beginning. Sandra was great to work with and easy to get in touch with, and whenever she was unavailable her assistant, Julie, was just as great. We had a couple of minor contract issues but Sandra was very responsive and was able to fix them as soon as they were brought to her attention. They are very flexible and accommodating. The venue is GORGEOUS - we had very minimal decorations and it would have been fine with even less - and of course the food was delicious. We are still getting tons of compliments on our reception!

Twin Owls is a wonderful place to have your wedding reception. The log cabin is amazing and is so unique. The food is excellent and everyone will love it! The responsiveness to emails and phone calls is slow; it sometimes took days to get a response. However, they were very accommodating to any changes I wanted to make or any concerns that I had. The value is great, while there is a food and beverage minimum, there is no rental fee. However, we had decided to pay for an extra buffet option, but come the day of the wedding the food was not available for our guests. While I was refunded the money, I was still upset that it was not made and it was one of the things I was looking forward to eating. But, the rest of the food was amazing and was leaps and bounds over normal wedding reception food.

Twin Owls steakhouse has amazing food. Huge proportions and a high quality taste. The ambiance was lovely. They've taken really good care of the old mansion, and it has a unique feel to it. My biggest complaint was that the coordinator only works a few days a week, so when we were getting down to the fine details, she'd often be unreachable which was really frustrating. Everything turned out ok, but it felt very last-minute, and I like to plan ahead, so this was really stressful for me. My only other complaint was that the noise restriction forced us to end our reception at 10:30pm, which is really really early, in my opinion. The service on the day-of was great.

We had about 40 guests at our wedding. We rented out the garden room and bar/lounge area for our wedding reception in Estes Park, CO. The Twin Owls Steakhouse was excellent. Our food was excellent and our guests were still talking about it a week later. It was the perfect amount of space for our guests and I wouldn't have done it any differently. Their wedding coordinator Sandra was easy to work with and patient. They worked well with our florist and cake company and were very accommodating.

Great staff!! posted 7/22/2012

Sandra and Julie worked together to make our evening absolutely wonderful. The staff was soooo attentive of my husband and I, making sure we had water, drinks, and something to eat if ever we needed. They worked with our DJ to coordinate everything behind the scenes so my husband and I didn't have to worry about a thing. We had a little less than 120 guests so filled the main room, loft, and had the buffet in the garden room. It was a little tough that they opened for decorating at 12:30 on the day-of ... with the wedding at 3:30 I was already getting hair and make-up done and wasn't able to do up the steakhouse on my own. It was tough - I didn't want to ask bridesmaids or mom/stepmom to do it because I wanted them with me during hair and makeup. So that was a little frustrating and "inflexible" The food... holy moly it is the best food we or any of our guests have ever eaten. This is NOT "wedding food" I mean... baked brie, elk bites, NY strip... unbelievable. So good. But WOOOOOWWWW do you pay for it. That is the only reason I had to give value 4 stars... not that it is more expensive than anywhere else in Estes for a wedding... but everyone up there charges too much. So just throw down and do it!!

Beautiful mid-size Reception posted 7/22/2012

We had our wedding reception here in June with about 120 people. They worked with us with long distance planning and were very flexible and accommodating with set-up within the facility. We definitely recommend!

Yummy Dinner! posted 7/19/2012

This place was awesome! The unique menu was fabulous for our out of town guests. The appetizers were extremely tasty. The dinner itself was even perhaps better than our wedding dinner! And the desserts were to die for! The venue had multiple room choices, and the one we got was perfect. The price was right, and the service was excellent.

Great food posted 5/3/2012 (modified 5/3/2012)

Our reception was held here. Was nice to be able to have our guests walk right into the reception after our ceremony at the Black Canyon. We went and took pictures while guests enjoyed cocktails and apps. The dinner was fantastic we has so many guests tell us what a wonderful time they had at our wedding.

Rustic Reception posted 11/5/2011

We decided to host our reception at the steakhouse due to its Colorado Mountain atmosphere. The log cabin-like interior does not require much decoration as it is beautiful in itself. The food was delicious & we were able to offer unique options such as Elk. The service was also very good. The in-house planners were very helpful throughout the entire planning process. They were even able to help with wardrobe malfunctions! The "cozy" feel seemed to put our guests at ease and everyone had a great time. There is limited space for guests, but this is the perfect reception spot in Estes Park for a small to medium sized wedding!

Great Food & Elegantly Rustic posted 10/20/2011

First of all, the food was delicious! The filet mingon macgregor is a must have, every one of our guests raved!! The planning was made very easy, especially from a distance. We had our wedding dinner in the loft, which was cute and cozy and had the rustic ambiance that we wanted. All around fantastic. Can't wait to go back and have dinner there again and relive some wonderful memories!

Wonderful posted 10/18/2011

The food was simply amazing and the venue gorgeous. We have never had a better steak and every single of the 135 guests said the same thing - that is IMPRESSIVE! I highly recommend them to anyone, Sandra is a treat to work with and very organized. The only complaint I had was that one server was pushy with our guests when things needed to be moved, such as the cake - granted, it must be very difficult to move a wedding cake, there is no need for rude comments and pushy behaviour - a simply announcement coordinated with the DJ would have sufficed. That being said, the party and dinner was absolutely amazing and I still give it a 5 star rating.

Beautiful Rustic Reception! posted 10/16/2011

My husband and I wanted a place that was very classy looking and that wouldn't need a lot of work to decorate for our reception and we found that in Twin Owls! The place made for great pictures and a lot of fun! The food at our reception was phenomenal! We loved it and had many guests compliment us on the "catering" which was all done by the Twin Owls staff. The only complaint I have is there is a food & beverage minimum depending on the day and which room you utilize for your event. We ended up not having as many people drink at our open bar which went toward this total, but it didn't matter because even if we didn't spend the required minimum, that's how much it cost anyway. I will say that the service was worth the extra cost though! Everything was set, cleared, and wrapped up quickly & in a very organized fashion. They ended up saving all my centerpieces, decoration, placecards, etc. I'm so glad so that I can use a lot of that stuff in my wedding scrapbook! Loved our reception and given the choice, would do it there all over again!!
