Sundeck Restaurant

We invite you to enjoy our wonderful restaurant on property, the Sundeck Restaurant, while you enjoy your Estes Park accommodations at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn. It continues as a family operation, now operated by Vic and Colleen Hoerner, since its establishment at its present location in 1948 by Mr. and Mrs. Fred Hoerner. Their desire was to provide a place where people could enjoy a quality meal with a superb view.

From the windows of the Sundeck, one can see the higher peaks of Twin Sisters, Taylor, Otis, Hallet, and Flattop mountains. Prospect, Gianttrack, Rams Horn, Eagle Cliff and Deer Mountain are a few of the closer, lower mountains.

For the past 52 years, the Sundeck has served a variety of dishes right next to Alpine Trail Ridge Inn, one of the most accommodating Estes Park motels. The restaurant has become famous for its Rocky Mountain Trout, Forella Blau, Viennese Goulash, Prime Rib, and Chilies Rellenos. At all times, we have made a great effort to use the finest quality of food and prepare a meal as original as possible.

Come experience lodging at Alpine Trail Ridge Inn and enjoy a hearty meal at a nearby restaurant.
