We came to this resort on our baby moon in July 2013. Items we had included the pork shank dish, trout dish, butternut squash soup, short rib grilled cheese sandwich, cherry pie and the brunch buffet. Everything was delicious, but the stand-outs for me were the short rib grilled cheese and the cherry pie. I have regular dreams about reuniting with that short rib grilled cheese sandwich, it was among the best things that have ever entered my mouth, and that says a lot since I'm a foodie. I was also fond of the cherry pie. Fresh tart cherries and a flaky crust served a la mode with some vanilla ice-cream.... it was amazing. The other items were exceptional as well and the service was great. No complaints here!

My wife and had one of their house specialties Crispy Pork Shank which is the one of the best pork dishes I have ever had. It is a multi-day marinading process that really pays off. The other nice thing is that they have simple things like sandwiches and pizza on the same menu as the elaborate and more expensive dishes. Great when traveling when some of your party want a really nice meal and other just want something simple or smaller i.e. our kids.

Totally worth the little extra expense. Everything is wonderfully made and chef Jay really cares about the food. You must sample his spicy chutney called "Gunpowder". See my review in Yelp.

The restaurant is a little inconvenient to get to from Vail village but it is well-worth the extra effort. The food at Atwater was excellent and the service was great. The restaurant was competitively priced and of great value. I will surely be coming back soon.
