lakeside lunch

We stopped in at the Lake Crescent Lodge restaurant, needing some nourishment after a vigorous walk along the other side of the lake, and we enjoyed a delicious small meal, served without delay or fuss and at reasonable cost, so very good value.

I have eaten at Lake Crescent Lodge Restaurant many time over the past few years and have always had a good meal except for my most recent visit. My friend and I were very disappointed in the quality of the food. Each year, the lodge contracts with different food services and this year, they missed the mark. My friend ordered... More

Delicious food, fairly long wait for service, noise level is high when full, lodge lobby area is a great place for games around the fireplace.

I expected the views....I didn't expect how good the food and service would be! Ate dinner and lunch here. Wonderful salads, Penn Cove mussel dish that was "to die for"., Braised short ribs/pollenta dish (amazing), seafood tacos, wines, burger, dessert. They have a really good chef at work here. Wonderful service by Kelly from Indiana...her recommendations (for dinner and hikes)... More

We met relatives staying at an RV park about 15 miles west of Port Angeles (a terrible park). They wanted to go back into PA for lunch but instead we headed 5 miles west to Lake Crescent. The lodge was built in 1915 and like most National Park lodges is beautiful and elegant. The restaurant overlooks the lake (of course).... More

The Lodge sits right on Lake Crescent and has gorgeous views of the lake and surrounding mountains. There is a very nice beach area for kids, kayaks and swimming. Also large Adirondacks to kick back and just enjoy. Great place for families with lots of hiking trails all around the Lodge and cabins.

I had the oysters and the apple, goat cheese, walnut salad. My husband had the fish and chips. Both meals were excellent. We had the marion berry pie for dessert. It was pretty good- but I'm a bit of a pie snob, and it would've been better if it had a bottom crust. We were seated right away and the... More

I have eaten at the Lake Crescent Lodge Restaurant several times over the years. The food quality has been spotty. My fish and chips had a spongy breading and very little fish. The chips were average and the slaw was swimming in mayo. Otherwise, the lodge bar is a wonderful place to spend some time.

Charming dining room, especially the glass porch overlooking the Lake. They also offer more of a "bistro" style of eating in the main area of the lodge.

We had the pleasure of dining at Lake Crescent Lodge Restaurant with friends recently, and it was fantastic! Located in Olympic National Park and right on Lake Crescent, the scenery is unbelievable. We sat in the Sunroom area, and the view out over the Lake was fabulous particularly since we were there as the sun was beginning to set. I... More
