Dinner at sunset here was really only marred by the clouds obscuring the sun, and a close-by large party of overly loud and inebriated patrons. The room is quite nice, we had a window table, and our server was quite possibly the maitre'd (since there were two side-by-side large parties). He was very personable, accomodating, and professional. Our food was... More

The food is good and the service is okay. The setting is spectacular! I enjoy eating hear because of the view of the lake and mountains.

Had dinner at sunset at Wendell's and the venue was nice but food was average. Started with shrimp cocktail - very good and spinach salad which was equally good. The entree was a disappointment. Ordered the turf & surf - the lobster tail was very good but the fillet ordered medium rare was dry and had no-flavor. My husband ordered... More

Just for that experience alone it is worth it! Entrees are large so be hungry. Had a that large salad and then sirloin tips from the appetizer menu and I was delightful full. Husband had the small rib eye steak. No room for dessert. $$$

My wife and I had several meals at Wendell's (not Wendall's as Trip Advisor has mispelled). The best time is at sunset - make sure you reserve a table near the windows. We had the elk soup as an appetizer and breast of duck as the entree - both were excellent. We discovered that our server (who was very knowledgable)... More

Food was great, service was a little slow. Definitely better food than the Gathering of the Nations for a little more money

We have eaten here for special occasions and never been disappointed. I normally do the Australian Lamb chops which are truly amazing, but this time I had the Elk Tenderloin. Truly one go the best cuts of meat I've ever had and unbelievably tender. The Yukon potatoes au gratin were a perfect compliment. Where else can you try elk? Can't... More

I have eaten at Wendall's numerous times and have never been disappointed. From the Elk steak to the lamb chops and eggs benedict--it is all very good.
