Great Sunday Brunch

We have only been here for Sunday Brunch. The food is really good. Descent variety of food. I would like to see other food that is not just breakfast foods. The service was excellent. We will go back again, when we are up there.

Stopped by on our annual visit to Priest Lake and really wish we would have had time for a return visit! Great service, our server Andrea was courteous and attentive. Fabulous food, I had the fish and chips and it was great. Cooked to perfection and cut into small pieces so you could enjoy it. My husband has the fish... More

Really a beautiful view and setting. Good service. Plenty of staff. No more steak, ribs or waffle fries. They must have their reasons. I don't get it.

I've been to Cavanaugh's many, many times. The chef is great and the menu is more affordable now with a good selection. You can't beat the view with the outside seating with heated umbrella's if you need them. Dave is my favorite bartender! Great service from him!

Cavanaugh's was recommended to us as a nice place to dine at Priest Lake. We went there for the first time last weekend and that would also be our last visit. We waited for a long time to be greeted and one of the patrons in the restaurant even came up to us to tell us about an empty table... More

Our Grandaughter chose Cavanaugh's at Priest Lake for her Destination Wedding on Pi Day 3/14/15. The Lodge and Staff went above and beyond to make her day perfect.

We had 15 family members gathered for a farewell to the lake ages 2 to 77. The staff put togather several tables to accommodate us in a very short time. We ordered ahead of dinner for the toddlers, we had drinks for the adults, we split orders and we split the bill 5 ways. They accommodated us in every way... More

We flew into Cavanaugh Bay last week and had an amazing meal here. My husband had the steak with Gorgonzola and said it was the best steak he ever had. I enjoyed my fish tacos, but after seeing his plate, wished I had ordered the steak also! Beautiful green beans and roasted mixed colored potatoes with sweet potatoes, it was... More

Had lunch here with a group of friends and really enjoyed the views! The staff was exceptionally good, and my water glass was never empty. They even offered to take a couple of group photos for us. The manager made his rounds checking on everyone's satisfaction and even clearing a couple of plates away. My only disappointment was in my... More
