This beautiful restaurant offers everything from common to exotic. But, if you want the best value...go to the bar. The appetizers and drinks are amazing. The bartender kept us laughing and entertained wit his specialty drinks and comedic chats.

We drove through estes park from Boulder just to visit The Stanley hotel (which has beautiful lobby and common areas). We so happen to fall upon Cascades and figured we'd pop in for a drink and appetizers at the bar. Apps were tasty, but what had us glued to our seats for over an hour was amazing bar tender and...

We stayed at the Stanley for our cost to Estes park. We are three dinners here and all we're excellent. The filet mignon, elk, and meatloaf were all incredible. The grilled Caesar was tasty. All of the appetizers were great. Eat here!

We had a fabulous meal and a wonderful night cap. We were able to wander around the grounds and the lobby. We took some photos and made our way to the restaurant and bar. Top Notch food and drinks. Our waiter at the restaurant had little to no personality, but the food and atmosphere was so good it didn't really... More

Brought a group of 12 family/friends here for brunch the morning after our wedding. My parents live in Estes, and we'd had an enjoyable breakfast here a few years ago. This experience was disappointing. Our server had zero personality and seemed less-than-thrilled to be there. I don't want over-the-top service, but I would hope they could be at least pleasant;...

We had to finish our evening in Estes Park with a visit to the Stanley, so the Whiskey Bar seemed like best for a nightcap. Nobody could decide to try all the flavors so we stuck to wine and just enjoyed the atmosphere. Definitely a must visit place and very attentive staff.

The restaurant was so busy, that we ate at the bar, and really enjoyed it! We were in a mood to splurge so we ordered a lovely bottle of chateau neuf du pape to accompany our foie gras appetizer. How much more decadent does it get?!?!?! The food was delicious, hubby had elk tenderloin and I had filet - both... More

We challenged the staff with a walk in party of 12, including 4 small children. The accommodated us promptly. Orders were taken and delivered quickly. Special requests to split an order among children were handled cheerfully. Food was excellent. Servers were back frequently for drink refills etc. highly recommend.

We ate breakfast here because it came with our room. The food was fine, but nothing special. Service was good. I'm sure this is more of a dinner place, but if the breakfast isn't included in your room, you can do better elsewhere in town. My mushroom omelet had only a few mushrooms, no prosciutto as had been listed, and... More

The restaurant was amazing. They had great food and service. The bartenders were knowledgeable of their stock. They also will ask you questions, to see if they can match a great drink with you. Really enjoyed the atmosphere and relaxation the restaurant gave you while you ate.
