While the Lodge at Wilderness Ridge is located almost in our backyard, we don't frequent it enough (according to me). But, when we do, we are always satisfied! This time, my wife ordered the Quesadilla with beef and guacamole and I ordered the Barbecue Burger. We both opted for the Sweet Potato Fries, which are always spectacular! Thanks to Maddie... More

We live close by and have eaten at the Lodge a few times, we love the upscale rustic atmosphere in the building, as well as the dining overlooking the golf course on the deck (most outdoor eating in Lincoln has you looking at a parking lot or a busy street). The food is sometimes pretty good, but I have had... More

We celebrated our first wedding anniversary at the Lodge last night and it was perfect. My husband is a member at the golf club here yet we seldom eat there. It was the place we had our second date so it seemed appropriate. We sat outside on the expansive, scenic deck and enjoyed our cocktails (my Grey Goose martini, dry/dirty... More

We came to town and sent out an email for an impromptu get-together. We didn't know how many would show up, so we asked for an area to seat 16 or more...yet flexible if more people shoed up...and they did...22 in total. Their staff made it easy. We got there early and had a drink at the bar while they... More

We really love eating in this huge log lodge. From the minute you walk in the carved front doors with the antler door handles, you feel transported. I wish I felt that way about the meal. The steaks are really good but that isn't unusual in Lincoln. The fish dishes are good but not especially memorable. The prices are pretty... More

We had an after hours friends and business dinner for six here, and was recommended from a local. The server, Marika, really made the evening. The overall feel and atmosphere of the restaurant is very nice, rustic and mountain feeling, yet very classy. The menu was extensive, and everyone enjoyed their meal (the starters and the salad were fantastic!). The... More

The grand entrance and airy ambiance sure set the tone for a special evening. And the staff are very considerate, helpful and efficient. The wine list is light but for the most part, reasonably priced. The big let down? The food. We ate here once long ago and remembered the food as being pretty good. Not so much the case... More

It's a good to very good place to eat, one of my top choices in Lincoln to be honest. This is a la carte, so prepare to open up the checkbook when dining here. Haven't been here in a while, but have probably eaten here 5 times or so between lunch and dinner and have never had a bad meal... More

Anytime I eat here, I feel like I have been transported to some mountain top resort. Beautiful architecture, multiple settings to eat, and quiet elegance. business meetings, family gathering, hanging out on Saturday night -- it is all wonderful. The lights at Christmas are amazing! Enjoy the vacation - locally enjoyed if you are in the area.

I lodge is absolutely beautiful ! We has a lovely lunch with good service. The buffet food was above average? The prime beef and desserts were excellent. Maybe a little pricy, but would do again if we were in town.
