Only complaint was that the service was a tad show. Had Salmon which was great - good seafood in Cheyenne can be a challenge to find!

My wife's lamb chops were under done. And my 16 oz prime rib was overdone. The restaurant uses staff on some sort of Foreign Exchange program. I would highly recommend that if they're going to continue to do this that they wait until the Staff can take proper directions. Smiling and being courteous is not difficult in any country however taking a temperature for meat and communicating it to the kitchen is much more difficult than you would imagine. There for my server wasted my time and $75 at least and really nice meat.

We had to make quick plans for dinner, and we were able to secure a place during a busy time. The service was prompt and attentive, and our selection for our meal (trout) was prepared as expected. If we are ever again in the Cheyenne area, we will return

We were just passing through Cheyenne...staying only one night. At the end of a long day driving we were staying down the street but looking for a good restaurant. We were not disappointed in Hathaway’s which is located within the Little American Hotel. We hope our travels take us to Cheyenne in the future as we would love to spend at least a night at the hotel and enjoy another meal at Hathaway’s.

As Cheyenne's only regular Sunday Brunch I expected much better quality. The line staff could barely speak any English. No real management seem to be present. The worse part was the very low quality of food. The shrimp were almost rubbery and had the texture of cotton in your mouth. The ham was very gray. At 11:30 am the only prime rib choice was well done. The girl who cooked our omelets did not know what she was doing, and they were awful. By noon the dessert bar looked mutilated and was not refreshed, so I opted for the hot dessert bar where I had the most tasteless bread pudding. Do not waste your money on this very over priced glorified buffet.

The staff was so friendly & helpful. The tables looked wonderful & clean. The food looked appetitizing & tasted delicious. We could have a quiet conversation & also visit with some neighboring tables. We have eaten here before & we knew this was an excellent place to come back too & we would certainly agree with that again today!

Seated quickly but took at least 10 minutes to even get water and drinks ordered. After ordering it was a very long wait for food. We spent around 2 and a half hours there.

The food and service were great at Hathaways! Our only disappointment was that they no longer serve Bananas Foster tableside. We experienced that several years ago. Now the Bananas Foster is served in a Crepe and they bring it already made. It was good, but we like the experience of having it made at our table.

My wife and I made reservations for 7:15. When we arrived the manager greeted us and then proceeded to show she didn't know how to seat anyone and left us. Finally after 5 minutes a person came over and did seat us (4 stars left). The waitress was nice and cheerful and she asked for our drink order. We ordered a bottle of wine to share. She showed up with it and 2 dirty non wine glasses. She then went and retrieved 2 clean ones and poured or wine. We put on our order to start off with an appetizer of shrimp cocktail. She then tells us that she can't bring us any bread because there is none left. While waiting for our appetizer we watch other waiters serving customers after us bread (3 stars left). She finally comes back to our table to tell us that they don't have any more shrimp cocktail. My wife then asks if we could have some bread. She then states that it is cooking. I then say well 3 tables have received bread. She then brings us bread (2 stars left). We eventually receive our dinner. My loaded baked potato had been under a heat lamp for at least 30 minutes, prime rib was dry and my steamed vegetables were cold (1 star left). We were so looking for a great dinner and we were very disappointed. We have had greater service at outback that was way busier.

We had reservations for 645pm on Valentine Day.... Arrived a few minutes early were seated on time. They were busy as more people came. The salad came right out then we waited for over an hour for the food, which was warm not hot. One family with children left because their food had not come out. One man came to the hostess twice complaining loudly that he was mad as one in his party did not have their salad after being there two hours. This visit was a shock to us as we have being going to LA for many years.

Ordered rare prime rib - served med rare at best. Came with Thanksgiving fixings rather than what you would expect with prime rib. Service was okay but had to remind the server to bring the dinner rolls.

Amazing Thanksgiving Buffet. The selection of salads, including peel and eat shrimp was outstanding. The carving station included turkey, beef and ham - all were delicious; of course on Thanksgiving you have to have turkey (which was moist and had a wonderful flavor) but the ham was my favorite. All the traditional side dishes were very well prepared and the turkey gravy was hot and very tasty! Had to go back for seconds on the yeast rolls (that were fresh and melted in your mouth - yummy!) Desserts - all we tried were fantastic - just wish we had left more room for more desserts!
The buffet was an outstanding value for the cost.
Definitely will go back next year 😊

Thank you so much a lovely Thanksgiving Day brunch. We appreciate all the Little America employees who worked on this day to allow many families to have a dinner together.

The buffet in Hathaway’s was set up so nice and all the food was prepared beautifully.

There were too few waitstaff such that after 15 minutes we had to approach the person who seated us to be served. This insulted the waiter who should have been serving us such that we were served by a person who had one arm in a sling, who nevertheless did an admirable job under the circumstances. The chicken noodle soup was made with macaroni, the mixed salad was all lettuce, and the mixed vegetables with the trout was corn despite the fact that the other item was a potato. The only good items were the wine we chose, and the molten chocolate cake for dessert. We would not go there again.

We were staying at Little America on our way to the eclipse, and figured Hathaway's would be good for dinner. Even though the hotel was full, the restaurant was not, but the wait staff blamed the slow food delivery on the crowd. It took a very long time to get our glass of wine (the waiter was underage, and to get someone else to do that), and much, much longer to get our food.
We both ordered Prime Rib medium-rare, and when the two servings finally came out, one was cooked properly, and the other was fully well-done. The waiter took it back, and we did get the second serving within about 5 minutes, cooked properly. Once served, the food was ok, but nothing spectacular.

Had brunch with out-of-town guests. Good food for a buffet. Not the best organized layout I've seen. Service was fine and servers polite, but they are understaffed. The price is right for the quantity and quality.

Unfortunately we did not have a good experience. The drinks were watered down in the bar before dinner. Lamb chops were gristly and too rare. I felt sorry for the girl who waited on us, because it was her first night on duty. I asked the vintage of a wine we were interested in and she asked the bartender who told me it was 1893. I laughed and said that can't be right for a $58 bottle of wine. So I went ahead and ordered it, and it was a 2015 with a "First Vintage of 1893", which is what I expected. I do not recommend this restaurant, but they at least tried.

The live music was great, but the food was pretty sad. My $30 steak was about 1/2 inch thick and woefully overcooked. My friend had the two tiniest (and pricey) lamb chops, seriously each about the size of a golf ball. The lamb was also overcooked. This was during Cheyenne Frontier Days, so you would expect them to have a full staff, but I had to order at the bar and carry our drinks back and forth. The staff was doing the best they could, but they just had way too many patrons for so few employees. Go for the live music, but eat somewhere else.

We had a truly terrible experience at this restaurant. While our server seemed to be doing the best she could, there wasn't enough staff for a Saturday night and we waited very long for everything. Our food finally arrived an hour and 20 minutes after we ordered and the tables around us were having the same experience. When the food finally arrived, all 3 people who ordered the pasta said it was cold (the cheese on top had melted and then hardened as it cooled.) I had the trout with a baked potato. The trout was hot and the potato was barely warm enough to melt the butter I put on it. We all felt terrible for our server, who was obviously overwhelmed and trying her best. When we asked to speak to the manager, no one could find her (at 7:00 on a Saturday night! WTH?)

This restaurant has a nice, reasonably-prices menu and the ambiance is inviting. However, they need to get their act together on the management and staff. This is a beautiful hotel with a black eye that is Hathaway's.

My wife and I had a pre-Valentine dinner on Monday, February 13th. Our friends had taken us to the Country Club the week prior. Our dinner and dining experience at Little America was far and above our experience at the Country Club. Great meal, great atmosphere. Jericha was our waitress and she was courteous, friendly and helpful. Using your website for reservations was easy. A great evening, thank you.
