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.

I have been eating here for years, off and on with good and bad experiences. This recent trip was the best of all of them. We had a table of 14 and our server, who's name escapes me, did an excellent job of keeping up in fulfilling requests. The meal was fantastic. The wine and accompanied appetizers were delicious; the... More

We were visiting and a friend wanted to have dinner here. After entering through 2 sets of massive doors we found ourselves at the hostess station. I looked up and to my shock and horror I saw a huge stuffed bear standing with a metal BEAR TRAP gripping its front paw which was attached to a big tree stump. I... More

This was a banquet dinner. Chicken, broccoli and whipped potatoes was served to everyone. The dry chicken breast had an orange colored flavorless sauce slathered on it. If I had to guess the ingredients I would say it was a flour based gravy with orange food coloring. Also on the plate was steamed or boiled broccoli that was so overcooked... More
