“Nice Surprise”
Reviewed January 21, 2014

We were staying at the Cascades Resort and had dinner our last night here in Vail. Initially, nothing on the menu looked awe-inspiring and alot of the reviews have been about the steak at this restaurant. We had steak for lunch so weren't so keen to eat it again. We then decided to go for the the "Culinary Delights" dishes which were the Salmon and the Pork Shank. Oh my goodness!!! The Pork shank really did look like a Flintstones Meal as described by our waiter but it was super tasty as was the Salmon. Really nice surprise to have such a great meal on our last night in Vail. Would definitely recommend eating here if staying at the resort. Mouth is watering thinking about that pork shank now.

“We will be back!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Came here with our family - including 2 adults and 3 kids. The food selection catered to both families and adults alike. My husband loved the craft beer selection and the kids enjoyed the activity menu with crayons as wells as the food and sweet potatoe fries. The server was nice, friendly and accommodating. Fresh food and reasonable.

“Great hotel restaurant”
Reviewed January 14, 2014

We mainly ate there for breakfast and liked the buffet. The price was on the higher side but not more than other similar hotels. Will return to eat there again.

Reviewed January 7, 2014 via mobile

Atwaters was the best dining experience I've had. Food was amazing the staff was very professional and friendly including our server, Josh. Even the manager, Lauren stopped by a couple times to make sure we were doing well. Very elegant and comfortable. I highly recommend this for your family, friends or party of any size.
