Consuming raw food is hazardous to your health. I prefer my burger to be cooked done; not the norm and certainly not for everyone. This was the first time I visited your restaurant for a conference. As coordinator of this conference, I will not be recommending your establishment for anything in the future. Customer Service 101: you are there to... More

The view, service, and food was fantastic. I highly reccomend the salmon. The kids menu has plenty to choose from. I was very impressed with the service and the quality of the food.

The food is consistently excellent with their simple, but highly curated, menu. Beef dishes and the Scottish Salmon were standouts during our visit. Also, the breakfast buffet is honestly one of the best I've seen in this price range ($19) and seemed freshly reconfigured from day to day. Considering how much one could drop on a pastry and coffee in... More

For under $20 in Vail it has to be one of the better cost savers around. Had all your typical breakfast items and the staff were friendly and smiling. Had a table viewing the Gore Creek and the mountains right outside, so made it even more enjoyable.

Amazing soup, I could have had two more bowls! The burger and sweet potato fries were great and the triple chocolate cake was amazing. The staff was very professional and pleasant; and it has one of the best views in the area. The only negative was the humus but it won't stop me from coming back next time.

The view is beautiful, off season is amazing. Having the restaurant to ourselves cozy. Our waiter was very attentive, off season can be very slow but for locals very relaxing. The menu choices are great, I had the Pheasant soup to start and the CO Kobe cooked to perfection. If you are in Vail this is a must for dinner.

Sat night April 2/15 all restaurants booked so I did a TA search of where to go. Atwater looked interesting and after 20 years as a part timer in Vail I had never been to The Casscade for dinner. My brother and I were seated in the fireplace room with a beautiful view. We got very lucky to have Scott... More
