As a tradition we returned to the Lodge and enjoyed a festive and delicious Christmas Eve Buffet. The selections were varied from salmon to prime roast with plenty of fresh salad, fruit and cheeses. Also there were several dessert items. We did not take advantage of the Christmas morning buffet but we did view the selections and it looked very... More

We were traveling with two children and the menu had something for every one. We ate there two nights in a row because the children wanted to try the desserts they had missed the prior night.

I had soup and a sandwich for lunch. Both were fine, but what I really enjoyed was the view of Lake Crescent. It's so pretty! What a perfect place to warm up with a cup of coffee and some hot clam chowder. I would come here and eat again because it's in such a pretty setting.

After a day at Rialto and the 2nd and 1st Beaches viewing sea stacks and tidal pools we stopped here for dinner. The setting and a leisurely walk through their "Moments in Time” area was very pleasant. But, most of all, with a window seat facing the lake at sunset, or with a new moon, this would be an ideal...

The food came with a pretentious interesting menu, but the food itself was tasteless and boring, the breakfast one day was OK the next day not so good.

Wonderful view, a bit up scale and a good place for a lunch The Crescent lake Lodge is just off US-101 between Port Angeles and the turnoff for Sol Duc on the Olympic Peninsula. This is an historic, old school, lodge established in 1914 to cater to the upper classes. It is very charming, well maintained, in a beautiful setting,... More

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.
