New Owners, Better Quality

This place used to be an institution in this area for tourists and locals alike. The last couple of years the quality of the meat declined to the point where we simply would not go.

Service was ill-timed and inattentive. Salad was ok, served family style and plenty to go around. Simple but fresh with a choice of three dressings. Rolls looked enticing but were dry in the centers, not freshly baked. Ribs were of the steamed or boiled variety with a quick finish on the grill. One recent reviewer described it as "soggy bbq"....

Located behind the jetty (don't expect a river view) and under new mgt, the Lodge is a local institution. The outside has been nicely re-landscaped and the inside bar area is hip, well-decorated and fun, with a lively bartender and friendly local and tourist crowd. If they serve bar food, I'd stop there, as once through the doors, you're back... More

So disappointed to drive 2 hours from Gold Beach, OR while on vacation to eat their delicious alder smoked ribs only to turn right around. We had a great dinner back in GB but it wasn't the same as Steelhead Lodge. We loved this place and its history while it was open but now we don't know when we can... More

I have been to Steelhead lodge many times over the years. I live in Humboldt county and it is legend here. Love the whole place and am currently planning a trip to take folks who have never been there. Its one of the best spots to take my out of town guests for a treat.

Doesn't get better than this. Want a friendly repose at a fabulous bar? Want to follow cocktails with the best ribs you've eaten in awhile? This is a unique restaurant, managed by a terrific husband/wife team. Superb dining for friends, fishermen, and travelers.

We ordered the steak dinner for two with a side of mushrooms off of the placemat menu. The salad was served family style with three choices of salad dressing (italian, ranch and thousand island). The salad was good except I found the ranch dressing to be very salty but it didn't stop me from enjoying it. The baked potato was... More
