This is a beautiful and historic hotel. We had high hopes for a local gourmet lunch there after a jeep tour. Our waiter was cheerful, enthusiastic and nice. When we ordered the steak sandwich, she said, "you don't want that". "What do we want?" I ask and she said the hamburger. Really? That's the best you can offer from this... More

We looked forward to our anniversary dinner at the Cascades but when we arrived the place was packed, the bar adjacent had no seating just standing room only. Our table was ready about 15 minutes later than our reservation. Once seated we ordered, I had the night's special, a NY strip with toppings and my husband ordered the halibut. My... More

On our way through Rocky Mountain National Forest, we stopped at the Stanley Hotel, and decided to have lunch. It is the perfect time of year to have lunch al fresco. It was a lovely experience enjoying the sounds of the fountain, and the wedding party that happened to be passing through the hotel grounds. The food was excellent, and... More

We didn't eat in the restaurant area but bar area. We had a waiter that was the best I've ever had in my lifetime. His name was Alex and he made my birthday a special day. If you get a chance to eat at cascades ask for his section! Food was great...service outstanding!

My husband and I were visiting family/friends and they had made plans for us to dine at Cascades at the Stanley Hotel. We were headed out for a day of sightseeing (Rocky Mountain National Park) and decided to drive by the hotel to get a glimpse before we returned for our reservation, when it may have been too dark to...

A clean, bright dinning area. The food was nicely done -- but took a bit longer than we expected. Relaxing to walk in the garden area after eating. .

After spending the morning in Rocky Mountain National Park, we kept in mind the high regard the locals have for the Stanley Hotel. Because we were on foot, it took us awhile to reach the hotel from town and find the restaurant. Seated in the restaurant with its classic woodwork and tasteful décor, we relished the opportunity to spend time... More

While staying in the Stanley Hotel is a little out of our price range, we couldn't pass up the opportunity to eat there, and we were not disappointed! My wife had a kale salad and the halibut entre. I had lobster bisque and a ribeye. While my steak may not have been the best I've ever had, it was definitely... More

My wife and I ate here with our friends this past weekend and it was pretty good. We all had drinks and most of us had dinner as well. You cannot beat the atmosphere and the location, the Stanley is fabulous!! (Scenes from Dumb & Dumber and I'm sure other movies were filmed here). The drinks were very good but... More

One of the best meals we have ever had away from home. Incredible food & impeccable service. The Lamb was the best I have ever had & the short ribs were incredible.
