I live in Vail and I've been to most of the restaurants in this town, but Atwater has got to be the best by far!

Very quiet but great Kobe steak. Service was efficient and they have an extensive range of craft beer. Kids menu available but ordered pizza for kids off the main menu. It was large and we packed pizza to go.

The foods a little pricey but everything around here is too. Recommend Caesar salad with steak & foccaia. Cascade Resort is remodeling this summer. Yeah! My waiter Mike Wright was on top of things and helped to make sure the meal satisfied. Plan to enjoy several more meals here this week. Bill Downey Oxford OH

We stay at cascade every year and always enjoy dinner at Atwater. Had a late, light dinner last night. Service was fast and friendly. Plenty of great choices on the menu. We had a bottle of wine, salad, tacos and soup and everything tasted fantastic and was reasonably priced.

I was a bit nervous about Atwater on Gore Creek given some of the recent negative reviews. I should not have been nervous at all! We were a party of 8 and each of us enjoyed our meals plus our waitress was thorough charming and attentive throughout the dinner. I enjoyed the seafood pasta which was full of delicious mussels...
