The food was not bad just average. We were there for the same reason everyone else was... Stephen King and the Shining. We had an enjoyable afternoon. Make a reservation with the restaurant for your meal otherwise they charge you $10 for parking. Lovely views....More

For our last night in Estes Park, we dined at The Stanley's Cascades restaurant. I wasn't sure what to expect since the hotel is a popular tourist stop: overpriced and underwhelming food or a pleasant surprise? Thankfully, it was the latter! The service was incredible...More

Okay...so the food is expensive and you do not get that much for the money..but being at the Stanley is worth it. Just do not get the bison meatballs. I did not like them at all. BUT I do love being here.

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