We thoroughly enjoyed breakfast there, then branched out for day hikes. No complaints. The water is crystal clear, so on non-windy days there will be plenty of photo ops on the lake.

We shared a fish and chips and sat on the enclosed porch enjoying the view over the lake. Food was overpriced for the quality but the view can't be beat. Lodge has a nice gift shop and free WiFi.

We are on a quest to see all 59 national parks and Olympic was number 32. So far they've had the best food. We had dinner with hubby having salmon & myself having pork shank.

We expected a nice lunch, but were extremely pleased with an outstanding meal while enjoying that lake view. Besides the restaurant the lodge... More

This was one of the most delicious meals I've had. Ever. Don't miss this place if you're in the park or driving through! An incredible meal and an unforgettable sunset view. Must orders: -Salmon appetizer -Halibut -Bumbleberry dessert Also, the ambience was wonderful. It has a nice, lodge-y feel that bridges fancy with outdoorsy. Really great vibe!

Chris has the clam chowder for lunch which was very poorly prepared with sandy class, VERY stale potatoes, and little or no seasoning, very bland. Roger had the salmon but which was great. Service was excellent, bit do not order the chowder!

We stopped in for the views and stayed for lunch. The Grilled Cheese and Crab sandwich was fantastic. The staff were helpful, friendly and quick. I thought the prices were reasonable and there was so much to choose from, it was hard to pick just one. (I cheated and split half my lunch with my husbands, so I got to... More

Nice bountiful portions, sit on the glass enclosed porch for a spectacular view. Prompt courteous wait staff. Somewhat limited menu and we thought a little pricey but there is no alternative.
