Grandaughters Destination Wedding

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.

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

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

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.
