Recently enjoyed two dinners and two breakfasts here. I have to admit I was surprised in the best way by the quality of the meals. There were a number of selections from which to choose each night, using in many cases local sources. The King Salmon, for instance, was just off the boat that morning. The meals were also well...

We returned to Lake Crescent Lodge for dinner after a visit to Mora. We had been at the lodge earlier in the day and decided to try the restaurant on our return trip to Port Angeles. We were lucky to get seated immediately without reservations. Although we did not have window seating, we were able to see the lake from... More

The food here is fantastic! I had the lemon tarragon halibut with fennel, peas and potatoes Dauphine. Our drinks were also very good. Service was nice and friendly. The view of the lake is amazing. I would highly recommend this restaurant and the drive there is great. Don't miss this stop in the Olympic National Park.

Sunday lunchtime and the resort was buzzing. Unexpectedly high temperatures and many were on the beach or in boats. What a great time to be there. Strolled into the lodge on the off chance that a table may be available and the Maître'd asked us to wait a few seconds as she arranged for a great window table to be... More

We arrived mid afternoon at the lodge on Lake Crescent and quickly were seated by a window with a spectacular view of the lake. The server was not as fast in attending our needs. The food was not of the quality one would expect at a nice resort. The food reminded me of the old adage “Location, Location, Location” because... More

We ate dinner at the Lake Crescent Lodge, and were seated at a table for two in a corner window, so we had 270 degree views of Lake Crescent and the surrounding area. The food was EXCELLENT! The chef certainly knew his trade, and executed it superbly. I started with a Caesar Salad, which was fresh and well seasoned. They... More

We ate breakfast and dinner in the dining room, which has a view of the lake. Staff was attentive and helpful. Food was very good, though somewhat spendy.

It was good food. The location, the historic architecture, and the wonderful setting make it a great place to stop when visiting the area. It is worth the stop.
