We ate lunch here and had a table outside next to the river rapids. It is a beautiful view, great service, and the food was great too. We were there at lunch and enjoyed bison burgers and other sandwhich fare with pretzel buns which were very tasty.

We were looking for a place to eat when passing through Grand Lake, and luckily the nice woman at the bookstore recommended we walk a block off of Grand Street to the Rapids Lodge Restaurant. We are so glad we didn't settle for the typical tourist spot on the main drag. We were given a wonderful table outside next to... More

We were in Grand Lake for the 4th of July Fireworks and wanted to find a place for dinner. The restaurants on the the main street were all full and a storm was closing in so I got on Yelp and found this restaurant was a couple blocks away. What a great find! The setting is beautiful next to the... More

Stopped in Grand Lake while traveling through for an early lunch. Rapids Lodge is tucked away off the Main Street and around the corner. Beautiful place and on the rapids as the name suggests. We were seated out back next to the rapids with a view of the mountains. We needed a light jacket but no complaints as it was... More

The food at Rapids Lodge is amazing - our filet and salmon were cooked perfectly and the flavor was amazing. The salads were large and fresh. The restaurant looks out over a beautiful mountain stream, so the setting is divine. However, our service was not good. Our waitress never smiled and failed to ask if we wanted a refill on... More

On our last trip up to Grand Lake, CO we decided to try a restaurant we had heard about but had never been to. The Rapids Lodge and Restaurant is tucked away at the East end of town. The main lodge has been there for a 100 years and is actually part of the history of Grand Lake. It was... More

This is my favorite place to eat when I come to Grand Lake. I enjoy eating lunch next to the river. We have also been here for dinner a couple of times. The food is always good. A little expensive but I somewhat expect that being a tourist town.

I was tour-guiding a friend from New Mexico and was looking for a nice place to eat with a great view. Having eaten at Pancho and Lefty's a million times and found the food mediocre, I wanted to try something different. The reviews led me to believe that Rapids Lodge would have a great combination of food and views. This... More

Breathtaking views and the best dining experience in town. The food was superb and the staff very friendly! We've come every summer for the past 10 yrs or so and it never disappoints!
