Excellent service!

The service was outstanding and the food very good. The restaurant had great ambiance with each room decorated differently in vintage decor. Felt like we were eating in a private home.

Went here for dinner on Thursday night, place started to fill up nicely, the bar was packed with diners and the dining rooms had decent crowds. We got a couple of glasses of wine at the bar before dinner and the bartender was attentive and recommended a decent Red Zin. Dinner was great. Escargot, Buffalo Shrimp, encrusted tuna, lamb chops,... More

All the food we had here was great (Onion soup, lamb chops, chocolate cake). The restaurant is in a series of nice rooms. Service seemed a bit slow but I'm a hyper-NYC person. Staff are all very welcoming.

I have gone to this restaurant for years but have not been in a year. I believe the old chefs name was Richard and the food was fabulous.

We took a special couple to dinner and ate at the bar at the Interlaken. As usual food was superb try lamb pasta dish or the Alaskan Halibut. Bartender Mark makes great drinks and service comes with a smile. No view here just good food at bar or tables in bar. Formal dining room is nice but we prefer the... More

We had everything from pork chops to haddock. The chops looked delicious. The haddock was pretty bland, tasteless, and just short of overcooked. Reminded me of my mother's Friday night fish dishes. She had no idea how to prepare fish (50's). The service was outstanding (not how long it took the dinner to arrive, but the waiter's attentiveness. I would... More

We stopped by for a dinner on a busy Friday night. Although we called late during the day, they were able to slide us into a seating for four at 8:15 pm. When we arrived, the place was packed with a piano player in the lobby. The ambiance was great and the musician in the middle of a busy establishment... More

Perfect experience. Fabulous menu & Excellent meal. Gorgeous views of lake and town. Short walk from Main Street. The restaurant is an historic mountain home. Service was outstanding.

A nice gathering place with a friendly bar. The dining room is usually quite empty as most prefer to eat in the bar which is rustic and fun. Down side is that so many want to eat at the bar that it's difficult to get a seat to have a drink at the bar. All in all, though, a nice... More

Unfortunately, Paradox Lodge is for sale and not taking individual reservations. Since that has been my review with the highest number of readers, let me repeat the headline for Interlaken: Why haven't we eaten here before? Well, it doesn't matter because the first time was a charm: beautifully restored inn with lots of old fashioned cozy features; happy, welcoming, knowledgeable... More
