We decided to go to this restaurant based on ratings and its historic relevance to Manitou Springs. The atmosphere and service were very good but the food was only fair at best. Very disappointing since this was a special occasion (birthday) and the food was...More

We really enjoyed both the breakfast and the dinner. We ate breakfast each morning of our stay and only ate dinner once. The breakfast is buffet style or you can order from the menu. The dinner was very good as was the service.

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.
Is the Veranda open during the fall?
