I absolutely love The Stanley Hotel but don't waste your time going into The Whiskey Bar at The Cascades restaurant. When you drive into the grounds be prepared to spend $10 for parking. They will give you a gold coin worth $5.00 to cash in...More

We came for lunch before a tour of the Stanley. We got burgers and pulled pork. The menu was fairly limited - sandwiches and salads mostly, and a bit pricey. Despite those limitations, the food we got was delicious, and everyone enjoyed it. Several things...More

Had a great breakfast at Cascades. Food was great. Servers kept the water glasses and coffee cups filled. It took a little longer than I expected to get our food, but that wasn't a problem.

We enjoyed our visit to the Cascades Restaurant. The Stanley Hotel grounds are lovely and we especially appreciated the historic perspective. The dinner was fine but nothing spectacular. I think just the experience of being there was fun.

We were staying at the Stanley Hotel and wanted to try the restaurant there. We were very disappointed. The menu was very limited - only 8 entrees to choose from. At 7pm they were "out" of the Eggplant crepes - which, given the limited number...More

We were only having drinks and an appetizer on the patio. Plenty of open tables. Our waitress was a one stepper. She'd visit one table and run off and never check on us. We ordered 2 rounds of drinks. The frito misto was way over...More

We visited the hotel for the afternoon and decided to have lunch. Some of us had wings, apparently they were out of this world (something about the sauce), and others had The Stanley Burger, I think that's what it is called, which was amazing! Though...More

I don't know. I don't think you can bring in your own bottle of wine. Why don't you call and ask.
