My wife and I were married at Cavanaugh's in the summer of 2012. We ate at the restaurant multiple times the week we stayed at Priest Lake. At our wedding Cavanaugh's catered our dinner. A choice of prime rib, chicken, and veggie pasta was served. I got the prime rib and since it was so big I thought that I... More

We're from the Puget Sound area but have a home here at the Lake. Cavanaugh's has become our favorite place for a great moderately priced meal - meaning we've been there several times so far this summer, and will be back again soon - likely this weekend. Love the Thai pizza.

We have been here many times but I have never reviewed it before. This time was over the top great. Drinks good - especially anything with huckleberries in them! Food was great - had 3 appetizers and they came out quick and hot. We were a large party and Amanda kept up with the drinks and food, even though some... More

We stopped at Cavanaugh's for dinner and drinks on Thursday evening. The charming restaurant has a beautiful view overlooking Priest Lake at sunset. The food was great, and the atmosphere and service matched. I will be back to Cavanaugh's on our next visit to the lake.

My husband and I had our wedding at Cavanaugh's in September 2012. The whole experience was A+. The food was amazing, and the venue equally so. The view of the lake is breathtaking, and the entire staff was so helpful and they really worked with us, down to the last detail. Katie really went above and beyond to make sure... More

We started with the homemade pretzels, very delicious! Our waitress, Elise was great! Very informative about what to order and personable! I ordered the veg pizza and thought it was the best pizza I've ever had! Give them a try you won't be disappointed!

We boated into Cavanaugh's with 4 friends just to partake in their locally famous Sunday brunch. The servers were so helpful and fun to be around. The buffet was "to die for"! Fresh fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, french toast, cream puffs and so much more! Several of our party endulged in their awesome bloody mary's! This was... More

Dear Speedgoat, I can assure you that we expect our staff to provide our guests with amazing service. With that said, I am sorry you received service that was not up to our typical standards. I wish that you would have brought it to our attention so we could have fixed the problem while you were still with us. Please... More

We flew into Cavanuagh Bay Airport from Kalispell, MT to spend a get-a-way from home relaxing week end. My wife and I went to the Cavanaugh Bay restaurant for lunch and were greeted and seated on the large and clean new deck overlooking Priest Lake by our server, Alicia. Alicia is from the Seattle area, but has worked summers in... More
