After two long hikes, this was a great place to sit on the patio, watch the birds, have a nice cold beer, and enjoy a sandwich for lunch. The setting is nice. The service was good. The food was yummy.

We visited this attractively located restaurant after hiking around Emerald Lake. The food was good but not incredible. The delivery of the food was a little slow. It was more expensive than the food and service merited.

We arrived at Emerald Lake and it was near lunch time. We didn't have much time at all, and the waitress went out of her way, to assist in getting us some toasted sandwiches and nice coffee. We had this at an outside table right next to the gorgeous Emerald Lake. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the waitress who... More

When we ask questions regarding the portions (just want to make sure that we have enough food), she reply that the size of the... More

We had take out sandwiches from here one day and the girl behind the take out counter was just rude and unfriendly, the sandwiches on the other hand were excellent. We had lunch in the restaurant and the service was great. The food was average.

My family and I stopped at the Mount Burgess Dining Room for coffee and desserts after completing the Emerald Lake loop track. The desserts were superb.

Set in a wonderful location and looking very attractive we went into this cafe/restaurant that, at the time, was deserted. We were turned away and sent to an outside window to get our coffee as, at that time, we were only looking for coffee. Perhaps the management need to advise their staff that its customers who pay their wages and... More
