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

Went for brunch around lunchtime after church on Sunday. The brunch itself had a good varied selection - salmon, prime rib, French toast/waffles, potatoes, Mac and cheese, fruit etc. the desert bar had a lot on it but lacked "wow" - rice Krispy treats, mini cupcakes, Oreo cheesecakes served in muffin liners - it was so lacking I opted to...

We started there about 7 pm Friday evening on June 26 and when we got there they sat us down and we didn't even get our menus as they didn't have enough for us. A server that was helping fill waters filled our glasses and he asked how our evening was and we said great since we were celebrating our... More

The restaurant is in a huge "Northwestern"type lodge. The grounds are beautiful. Once inside, you're in a very large cavernous room with a very high ceiling. It has all the charm of a college dining hall. There needs to be art,plants, room dividers and better lighting, to soften the space.The steak I ordered was no where close to what i... More

Last night we had friends visiting from Portland, Oregon and we thought it would be fun to go to this restaurant and enjoy dinner on the lovely deck. I called for reservations and ended up leaving my request for a deck table for eight at six p.m. The machine indicated I would receive a call back confirming my reservation. The... More

We had dinner at The Lodge. I ordered the "Not so shrimp and grits". My husband had the pork chop. He said his pork chop dinner was "good". My dinner was ok. The shrimp were, in fact, small. The menu says asparagus, and yes, there were a few very small pieces of asparagus sprinkled on it. The polenta cake was... More
