We ate at Atwater on Gore in January during a ski trip to Vail. Awesome meal overall but the highlight was the 7X Colorado Steak which the waiter told us the background of. All the food was great but this was a highlight. We had 2 children with us who also enjoyed the evening. The free shuttle was also useful... More

During our annual ski trip with over 10 men, Atwater's was our first choice. A good selection of menu items and complimentary beers / wine. Both night we had over 8 people and called for reservations within an hour. Everyone was very hospitable and attentive. Thank you Bridget and Lauren.

We love this restaurant and have frequented it every time we've been to Vail (10 years in a row) but our two experiences this year were very frustrating. We had a reservation for 6 people at 12:15 pm, knowing we had to be at the spa (in the same building) for 2 pm treatments. Our food still had not arrived... More

We were driving from Aspen to Denver and stopped at Atwater for lunch during Christmas break. So glad it was recommended to us!! We had great, great attention in the dining room by our server and another young lady who came to help serve our large group. We had 3 young children and they bent over backwards to accommodate everyone.... More

We ate here right after Thanksgiving for my sons birthday. Everyone that ordered steaks were very pleased. I ordered a turkey burger and it wasn't that great. They have fantastic fries though.

Every item on the menu comes with a beer pairing. The shrimp corn dogs were amazing! Nice mix of beef, lamb, pasta. Lovely view.

We ate three breakfasts here, and each day the experience was the same. The service is beyond poor! We waited 20 minutes to be seated--the place was 75% empty! We ate the buffet, which was very good food, but we had almost finished our breakfast before we were offered water and coffee. They have made to order omeletes and good... More

This is definitely the new and approved Atwater. The menu is so creative and it was difficult to chose. Every dish was superb and the service was top notch. Certainly recommend dinner there

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
