Remote location experience Good Food

When in the mountains and remote location, the chicken dinner was good. Request a table by the window for a nice view and relaxed atmosphere.

Food was filling, especially since that is the only restaurant if you are staying at the Peaks of Otter Lodge

We stayed at the lodge for a night. I was really quite surprised at the quality of the food served. The prices are fair for what you get. I wasn't a fan of the breakfast buffet as I found the egg dishes a bit dried out. However, my husband loved the buffet variety and had a delicious scone from it.

The lodge reasturant is pretty good and they have a Friday night all you can eat surf and turf buffett. I have enjoyed going to the lodge since the 1960's and the rustic feel and appealing natural setting makes this an excellent destination.

Super overpriced. My husband and I ate here and I got the Turkey dinner. This dinner was $10 and the potatoes were instant. My husband got a steak for $30. Turkey gravy had cinnamon in it. I can't have cinnamon so I could not eat my dinner. All my turkey meat as dark and fat. My husband's steak was a... More
