The bartender, Hannah, was outstanding! She was just the right amount of attentive, talkative, and knowledgeable. After observing her style for a bit, my husband and I inquired as to how long she had been doing her job. 10 months. Amazing. She was the best bartender I have observed in a long time. She didn't write things down, but she... More

This Restaurant is not for the average person. Had no clue what I was ordering but was starving and when it came I spent $12 for a couple paper thin pieces of ham along with some bread.

The restaurant rated very high, the drinks and food were first rate, the waiters were very friendly and responsive which added to the good ambiance of the restaurant. I especially enjoyed their Long Island Ice Teas.

This restaurant is what I expected for being located inside a nicer hotel. It is nothing to rave about, but given the limited options for good dining in EP, this makes the list of recommendations.

My husband is vegan and the Cascade had a delicious option on their menu for him! The prices weren't too high either!

What are you looking for? If you're looking for 5 star dining, this isn't it. But if you're staying at the Stanley, or just visiting the historic hotel for the day, this gets high marks for convenience, service and super-cool decor. You know those scenes in "The Shining" when crazy Jack Nicholson is talking to the dead/haunted bartender who isn't... More

We were there with our family for a reunion and anniversary celebration, 16 adults in all. 8 rated their food very good, 6 thought it was fair, but not what was expected, and 2 thought it was bad. I was one of the 2. I had to send my food back to the kitchen twice and finally i just did... More

Didn't have reservations, so had to sit in the bar, even though during the hour and a half we were there, we could see at least the same two empty tables the entire time. Service was slow. Food in my opinion was not worth the price. I've had much better food for half the cost. Drinks were week, was like... More

I was very disappointed. Maybe I was expecting too much. The pea risotto was cold and soupy. The fries were cold and stale. Service was only mediocre. She seemed as if she wanted to be somewhere else. Meatloaf is good but very dry.

Time for Restaurant Impossible – Cascades Restaurant and Lounge I was seriously was waiting for the host of the TV show Restaurant Impossible to jump out and say “Stop the service! The kitchen is closed!” Everyone we spoke to said to check out the Cascades, it is a beautiful lounge. Which it is, a beautiful lounge. But this is also... More
