It was a brightly lit dining room. The food was seasonal, well prepared. Had to pay for a loaf of bread...the pork shank was huge, but tasty, was plated very nice. Husband had the 7x Kobe steak. wears very good also. The charred corn soup was not so great. Marginally desserts.

A small group of us went to Atwater during a company retreat. Not only was our waiter (josh) extremely knowledgeable and friendly he was passionate about what he did. Turns out he was actually a manager helping cover tables. Everything we ordered was fantastic and the service was the best I have ever had. We couldn't have asked for a... More

We recently ate at Atwaters and were pleasantly surprised by the variety of items available on the menu. Items ranged from the very casual like pizza and burgers to the more formal scallops and salmon. The food is moderately priced and the service was very good. We would eat there again.

Three course dinner for $33 was a great deal! Food was well prepared and service was very nice. Cherry pie with pistachio ice cream was great!

Atwater is an above average on-property restaurant. We enjoyed the food but as with the Vail Cascade overall, the great service made up for any minor issues. We had booked several weeks in advance but I received a call the week of our trip letting us know that there was a wedding booked in the main restaurant. While I appreciated... More

Just recently visited the restaurant again Saturday night for dinner and for brunch Sunday morning. Always such a nice experience. Food is exceptional and always fresh and pricing is very good. Nice to sit outside, too. Staff is beyond nice, so helpful and very professional - everyone in the restaurant and Spa and Lodge. Our server Saturday night was Nick... More

You may notice that I give very few bad reviews. That is because we research everything. Tripadvisor works. We ate hear on a Sunday evening in August. We had a great waiter with great service. I just tried the craft sampler and the others had some wine. We had appetizers and salad instead of the full meal. There is no... More

My husband and I walked down to Atwater from our condo in Lionshead. We left the kids with grandma and had a great evening. We chose to sit outside. I had the seared salmon and my husband had the Kobe beef. Service and food was fabulous. Nice music and peaceful setting surrounded by trees.Good beer selection.
