We just had breakfast but it was quite good. You can also order from the menu but you will pay more for essentially same items as the buffet. Pleasant room.

This was a nice evening out for my anniversary. The wine list is extensive and the fresh bread, cranberry butter and after dinner chocolate from the local chocolate maker were lovely touches. I enjoyed the duck dish very much, however, the menu selections were all...More

Pat - It's casual. We're at the foothills of Pikes Peak in a small quaint town where dressing up isn't everyones "thing." In the Cliff House Dining Room at night men wear dress slacks and collared shirts or suits.
