At Bird & Jim, we are defining Colorado cuisine with our ever-evolving seasonal and ingredient-driven menus sourced from the Front Range of Colorado and beyond.  Our menus are influenced by our artisan approach to cooking and the ardent nature of our farmers from which we source.  Our philosophy revolves around local, sustainable, and healthy eating. To provide this experience whenever possible we proudly source from local farms and ranchers from Estes Park, Drake, Kersey and Hygiene Colorado. 



Commitment to the community is crucial to Bird & Jim.  We are bringing people on a new culinary experience with every visit, educating people about what they are eating, creating a full calendar of community events including pairing dinners, festive events, supporting local nonprofits, live music. Bird & Jim is uniting our community through food, fun, and knowledge. 


Our philosophy of sourcing quality sustainable food carries over to wine--small farmers, organic, sustainable, biodynamic, are just as important to our wine selection as to our ingredients. Our sommelier is personally selecting wine for our extensive wine list and to pair with our food offerings. 


The bar team at Bird & Jim is excited to bring you handcrafted cocktails using fresh ingredients. Our cocktails are thoughtfully concocted by our expert team resulting in unique libations. Our team is driven by an innate sense of hospitality with a passion for creating a memorable experience. Join us in a newly renovated, beautifully designed bar near the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park.  



Let Bird & Jim bring our fresh, seasonal, quality food to your table, making your special event outstanding. We offer several different catering options. If possible we are happy to host your dinners at Bird & Jim.  If our available times and space constraints do not work for you--Bird & Jim can come to you.


Who are we?

Birds of a Feather Flock Together. In September 2016, seeking a place to spread her wings and start her own restaurant, Melissa Strong was introduced to the new owner of Alpine Trail Ridge Inn and the Sundeck Restaurant.  After working with the owner to subdivide the properties., Melissa was able to purchase.  She started to make her dreams come true, creating the space for Bird & Jim.  Melissa and John had been friends for years.  Melissa always said she would call John when she was making moves and the partnership came to be.  After a few meetings and a lot of perseverance Bird & Jim is here for you.


and Bird & Jim?

At Bird & Jim, we celebrate our beautiful mountain town and its history through Isabella Bird’s and Mountain Jim’s pioneer, nonconforming, mountain-loving spirit, the same spirit that brought us all to Estes Park! Read Their Story.
