Good food, service ok, didn't match hotel service

The entres definitely outweighed the server we had, she was young and new so we'll give her that. The cooks provided a wonderfully done rack of lamb ( 2 chops). Interesting sides to this dish, that I wasn't use to but the flavor blended well. My only complaint would be the brule was undercooked... read more

It was so hot inside that luckily we got to sit outside. The bar food menu was lacking and the main dining menu was too expensive for quality. But this is the only choice if you want to eat at this great location.

This location is simply amazing. The mountains and the lake as well as the lodge creates a nice welcoming. We got married there and it was so hard to choose one item from the menu to select from. I ended up with the bison and it was the best piece of meat I never had. The cooking was perfect and... More

As I had expected this to be a world class meal I was somewhat disappointed. We had two breakfasts, a dinner and a late night snack there and all were just okay. The dinner was a special treat as it was our anniversary and the two courses were overpriced and okay but certainly NOT world class.

We ate both nights of our stay but had to eat at 6:30 the first evening as a large party was due at 7 pm. We feared noise levels would increase at 7 but they did not arrive until 8 pm, when we had almost finished, and were then remarkably quiet! There is background music but it was subdued and... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Mount Burgess Dining Room. With stunning views all around, lovely soft music in the background made this a very pleasant dining. My husband loved his meal, I did less, but in general it was a very wonderful experience.

Our meals were fantastic- the chicken was an 11/10!! The service was very pleasant and complimented a great dining experience. The meals cost were slightly on the higher side - but were generous in size and in our opinion - very good value. The dinner was so good we had to have breakfast the next day - the buffet had...

Beautiful vegetarian options, and my husband loved the beef tenderloin. The vinaigrette was light and lovely. This meal is fine dining.

One morning we had pancakes during our stay here. They were tiny and not worth the cost. The next morning we had a big egg breakfast. Most of it was good, except the elk sausage which was dry and burnt. That morning a person at our table ordered pancakes and received ones twice the size from the previous day. Overall... More

Had a variety of appetizers for our dinner and all exceeded expectation. Scallops were delicious. Charcuterie plate was a highlight.
