Colorado Kobe beef was very good, food all-around was very good. Service was a little slow... but Philip the bus boy was exceptional, made our Christmas Eve dinner special.

We had great service at this restaurant inside the cascade resort. They have a fun craft beer menu which we enjoyed. The shrimp corn dogs were yummy as was the pheasant soup. The mussels were good but small, the rest of the family enjoyed their prime beef. It is a great reasonably priced with great service dining option for the... More

+hamburger was good, best was the fries -- awesome! +salads were just fine but nothing exceptional. Protein on salads not great: chicken on side flat flavour while tuna, which I asked for it to be seared and medium, came rather than in slices in small pieces of well cooked tuna I would not go back.

Fine meat is the feature but our three generational group all found something to enjoy. Seafood was very good. Service was friendly and helpful (a bit slow but not bad for a crowded night). Beer menu was popular with the 40 year olds. (No child's menu offered but our kids were tweens and teen so not sure if one available... More

The Meh: - Pricey, as one would expect of a resort restaurant in... More

We came here to get one of the minimum requirements of a guys trip, a nice steak. The steaks were what we had expected. The appetizer, sides, and drinks were the better part of the meal. The best part of the whole experience was the view and atmosphere, and most importantly our server Josh. He brought us a pheasant soup,... More

We dined here during our recent stay at Beaver Creek, per the recommendation of a friend. We were greeted immediately and shown a table in a great location overlooking Gore Creek. Our server, Josh, had great recommendations that worked for any budget, and was honest to say which dishes he preferred over others and why. The pheasant soup was a... More

The atmosphere and service were phenomenal. The food was just ok. We were staying in the resort so the location was convenient. I would drive a long distance to eat here.

We really loved this restaurant. Chef Adam Smith delivered a perfect meal with perfect beer parings for part of our group and wine parings for the other. 6 courses of goodness!
