The best place ever is outside on the deck overlooking the golf course (not in winter). Whether on the deck, in the bar, dining room, or in one of the private meeting rooms - it's always an excellent experience at the Lodge. The food is good, the beer is cold, and the service is great.

We had early reservations for New Year's Eve and had the table by the fireplace! So cozy and warm, the firelight highlighted the lovely, rustic interior. The service was excellent and the food was delicious. We both had the 14 oz Prime Rib with twice baked potato, roasted asparagus and creamy horseradish sauce. For dessert we shared the Limoncello cake... More

We took my father-in-law here for dinner to celebrate his recent birthday. Perfect searing in the dining room right next to the fire. They have just transitioned to the "winter' menu and there are many excellent selections. My wife and FIL opted for the Salmon Dinner (cooked well) and I chose the New York Strip Dinner (cooked medium). We were... More

I attended a 2 day seminar at this beautiful facility Sept 14, 15 and found their service to be very good. The lodge is a beautiful log building that has been finished with great attention to detail. We were in a small upstairs conference room, but there are larger rooms on the main floor. these larger rooms connect to a... More

We had a late lunch/early dinner on a Sunday afternoon. It has been a while since we have been here. The food is still really good. We had the nachos appetizer, a steak salad, cheeseburger, steak and Ahi tuna salad. All very good. Hopefully we won't wait this long to come back next time.

Along with another couple, we enjoyed an excellent meal in the main dining room of the restaurant. Our friends had fish, while my wife and I had beef and all the meals were prepared nearly to perfection. Also our server was very attentive without being "smothering."

An interesting place to eat & the food was excellent. What a surprise to find a rustic lodge made of logs with antler chandeliers in Lincoln, NE. It is lovely. I had brussels sprouts fried and tossed in an asian glaze with chopped peanuts. A fun/unique entree. I thought it very good. It could have used a roll or something... More
