Nice range of menu items to fit the desires of a group, from nicely prepared soups to pizza, sandwiches, and a couple higher end offerings. Only complaint was an overbearing server in love with the word "beautiful". The menu choices overcame that distraction and our varied age group enjoyed the atmosphere and preparation of our entrees. Prices are reasonable -... More

Service was over the top. The menu is well-rounded and inventive and plated beautifully. Food was delicious and leftovers went in our room fridge. Save room for dessert.

We were staying at the Vail Cascade Resort and decided to have the breakfast buffet. The buffet was well stocked with lots of hot and cold items. The food was really good but I would say at $18.95 a person it was a little overpriced. Would have been nice if a discount was offered for resort guests.

We were staying at the Vail Cascade and decided we were too lazy to go anywhere else for breakfast on the first day. Kind of regret that choice. The breakfast buffet was fine, but nothing special. Pretty generic offerings, not refreshed often. Up charges for omelettes, $4 for powdered hot chocolate, etc. Fine, but considering the reputation of the restaurant... More

I visited Atwater for my birthday. Honestly all of the food was very very good. I started with appetizers. The charred corn soup was excellent and you absolutely have to try their homemade bread! It is delicious. I was slightly disappointed in the mussels. They tasted a little more fishy than I like and they should have been served in... More

I can't speak highly enough of the experience we had at Atwater on Gore Creek over the weekend. We were staying at Vail Cascade, and while I was reluctant to eat at the hotel restaurant, the minute we sat down my reluctance subsided as I realized we had made a phenomenal choice. The setting is first class. Our table had... More

My wife and I wanted to head to Vail for our wedding anniversary and enjoy restaurant week. We hunted around TripAdvisor for the best options for both hotels and dinning options and landed at the Vail Cascade Hotel, which is also where the Atwater is located. The hotel is nice, that is a separate review. Saturday night we headed down... More

I was attending a conference at the Vail Cascade and had the pleasure of having dinner with a group of friends at Atwater on Gore Creek. I had the 6 oz. Kobe beef sirloin steak. It was delicious. So tender and tasty! The service provided by Joshua was terrific. He was very knowledgeable of the menu and very friendly. Jay,... More

Trying something new and with a 3 course for $33 we decided to give it a shot! The restaurant atomsphere was pretty casual. We enjoyed a flight of beers - because you can't choose just one craft beer - and ended up straying from the special to enjoy a couple other menu items. Overall great experience and good food!
