Meals are chef's choice and are served buffet style in Kingfisher's lodge-style setting which features exposed wood beams, river rock, and sweeping views of Icicle Canyon. European-style seating encourages interaction among guests. In the summer months, the terrace and the creek side meadow are available for outdoor seating. An extensive beer and wine list highlights local favorites and compliments the menu, which changes daily. Seasonal specialty drinks are also available.

3-days of business meetings at sleeping lady and we had all of our meetings at Kingfisher. For business meetings the food was awesome and met all manner of our groups food restrictions. The quality of the food was an unexpected delight.

We stayed at the Sleeping Lady. The service at the Kingfisher was excellent! The food in the buffet was average. However, when staying on property, it is convenient to be able to feed the family without needing to get in the car.

We made a reservation but when we arrived we were told a large group had reserved the whole place. It was quite obvious by all the corporate lanyards we saw.

Some of the food was great, loved the French toast. But was expecting the food to be better for the price. The shrimp tasting very fishy. Nothing made to order.

Sorry Kingfisher but reading these honest reviews it sounds like the service and atmosphere would not meet expectations for the price. We actually did a walk through of the resort recently and thought it looked like a beautiful setting but again disappointed that the rooms only have queen beds. A king would certainly reflect the price much better to our... More
