Join us for, breakfast, lunch or dinner in our comfortable dining room. Stop by for a cocktail in our lounge, as our "bar chefs," handcraft a cocktail from our historic cocktails of yesteryear.

This is not a place we will dine again. We ordered steak from the lunch menu and it was terrible. The meat was so tough our son couldn't chew it. I was starving so i knawed at it for awhile. Our waitress was lovely but very slow and not attentive. When she finally got around to asking us how our meal was I told her the meat was terribly tough. She said that was the nature of the cut! When she came to clear our food she asked if our son wanted a box. I told her no, he can't chew it! She appologized. When she brought the ticket she appologized again but made no effort to replace the meals or do anything to make it right. On the bright side, the atmosphere here is good. We ate outside on the patio by the water.

Cascades was doing a good lunch business indoors, so we ate outdoors in their sculpture garden next to the waterfall. I had the Colorado lamb gyro on a whole wheat pita with French fries. I was anticipating a triple napkin meal, but this was served perfectly and very tasty. Great service, beautiful location, and a great meal.

Met for lunch here with a party of 6. Four had the lunch - 2 trout, 1 burger & 1 flank steak. They all loved their food but no bread or rolls were included & no salad- somewhat pricey for what you got. Two of the party only had dessert - all priced at $8.00. Desserts were good but the flies surrounding us were annoying & plentiful - sitting on the food, beverage glasses, etc. We spent much time waving them off as did other tables of patrons. Hotel has to do something to remedy this situation!!

It is a very nice restaurant with friendly service and good food, but it was so loud, we had trouble carrying on normal conversation. The food was interesting and well-prepared. The pheasant corn chowder and the smoked trout dip were our favorite items - both were outstanding. We had a good meal, nothing really to complain about; however, I don't think we would choose to eat there again when we return to The Stanley.

Hotel where "the Shining" was filmed is a must see in Estes Park.
Dining room is small but elegant. Reservations a good idea.
