We have dined here several times over the years. The menu is constantly changing and their are also nightly "features" that are creative and fresh. They grow and use veggies picked from their house garden that you are able to view while walking around the property. Both my husband had steaks that were perfectly cooked and great mashed potatoes.

Our dinner was very good. My husband and I both had garden salads and Filet. The balsamic dressing was good, just wished they would have dressed the salad. The filet was cooked just the way we wanted them. It was served with mashed potatoes, also tasty. We normally share dessert but since I wanted the apple crisp and he wanted... More

My first time staying in Cambria, this being my girlfriend and I's first Valentine's together. I had researched our dinner place for our first romantic getaway, and this caught my eye! First, when we came in, I thought we were transported back to my childhood home of Memphis! It feels like the country home and a Southern cooking expo. I... More

It was a bit hard to find, but it had a nice atmosphere and the food was very good. It didn't have a huge menu, but it was enough.

If I can use the word cuisine to describe good ole Americana prepared dishes, you'll not be unhappy, but you won't rush to call Gourmet Magazine.

We stayed on a Travelzoo package (which they appear to run regularly) that included the dinner. Both of us had the filet mignon, one with the Gorgonzola butter, with mashed potatoes and green beans. Good quality meat, otherwise bland taste. Menu price on the higher end (too high for this restaurant, service and overall meal quality). Of note: they offer... More

Excellent Filet Mignon & Prime Rib and everything else too! Server was very friendly and attentive and gave us great recommendations on the menu. Very quaint restaurant with a casual homey feel. :-)

We were staying at the lodge and had made reservations to eat in the Lodge Restaurant. We were seated in the back dining room at a two top looking out to the gardens. We shared an order of the Maryland crab cakes served with the citrus aioli. The crab cakes were very tasty and there was enough for both of... More

We went and shared dinner for two and it was such a bargain. We had plenty of food, appetizer, drinks and even dessert. You will not be disappointed by the amazing staff either. Have fun and don't forget to try breakfast and dinner. Both are delish!
