We did not eat at The Cascades Restaurant located inside the Stanley Hotel but we did take a look. It is casual and the menu is mid-priced. It did not appear that you needed reservations. What you absolutely do need reservations for are the tours offered at the hotel. They are generally booked well in advance. It is worth a... More

This is a beautiful restaurant. Tons of whiskey choices. We ate 2 meals there. Breakfast and dinner. The wait staff were very kind and accommodating. The manager was there for both visits. Keep in mind they were on the same day. Guy worked probably a 12 or 14 hour work day. He was just as kind and accommodating in the... More

The food and beverage manager here is absolutely terrible. He was so flustered just trying to seat people (it was not even busy), he was sweating, and very rude. We were trying to make an additional reservation with him (a few weeks in advance), and he couldn't give us a straight answer. I have been working in restaurants my whole... More

While the food was very good, the atmosphere is the true star-of-the-show here. Cascades is situated right next to the grand whiskey bar at The Stanley. Much to see and imagine about this hotel in its heyday. Behind the restaurant, appropriately, is a waterfall. I had a delicious wild mushroom omelet. My wife, who needs to be Gluten Free, was...

I get annoyed when the restaurant is slow and you get neglected or ignored. Such was the case with cascades for a late lunch. For the price of food, it should have been much better. Got the feeling they would prefer to wait on affluent customers, not average folks. I've eaten hear twice and will not return. Exception was the... More

We dined here late Friday night in the bar area. It was crowded and the atmosphere was lively. The wait staff was very friendly and they took care of us right away. The dinner portions tend to be on the smaller side but you are not left wanting. The food was very good.

We had a party of 20 on a Saturday night and the manager Matthew was beyond amazing to accommodate us! He made sure we all sat together (two large tables next to each other which isn't easy due to the small dining room). We all flew from different parts of the country for this special occasion and couldn't have had... More

So relaxing to sit in a beautiful restaurant and enjoy our delicious meal after traveling to the hotel. Lovely view of the surrounding mountains.

We walked right to the bar and was met with smiling faces and excellent service. We had the lucky Lucy, red rum cocktail, paranormal cocktail, and a shot of a recommended whiskey because we know nothing about whiskey. They were all really tasty and dangerous if you catch my drift. We also had the brie burger and a buffalo burger,... More
