Great Option in a Remote Area

Choices are pretty limited on Lake Quinault. You have the lodge, which provides perfectly decent food but charges absurdly high prices for it, or....The Salmon House. We expected just your basic dinner experience there, but ended up really impressed with the salmon. They cook it perfectly, which... read more

I was there twice in a few days and very much enjoyed their preparations of salmon. I had the blackened salmon and then went back to try the smoked salmon the next afternoon. They were both very flavorful and perfectly cooked. The reviewer who said the baked potato was overcooked I curse a bit because Ive never encountered such a... More

While staying at Quinault Lodge, we ate both nights at the Salmon House. We have eaten there in the past and were not disappointed. We had salmon both nights, as well as their salad bar and it was perfect both times. Our server, Brenda, was amazing as it seemed that for wait staff, it was just she and Clifford -... More

My hubby and I ordered two different salmon dishes. I ordered the blackened salmon and he ordered the dill salmon. We like to share and his was delicious. But mine was phenomenal. So much flavor, cooked to perfection. He even prefered mine! This place has the best salmon I could ever imagine. I can't go to any other restaurant and... More

We were staying at the Rainforest resort and this restaurant is on property with views of Lake Quinault. We went for dinner late in the evening. Not many people were in the restaurant. We got seated by the window and was able to see the sunset over the lake and mountains. We both ordered Salmon cooked different ways, it was... More

The Salmon House is only open for dinner, 4-9 pm so you know it's gonna be busy. Go there anyway,you won't be disappointed. Have your salmon broiled (we did), baked, blackened or choose something else from the menu ( why?) sit back, enjoy the lake view and your dinner.

Clam chowder was excellent, Salad fixings were fresh. Two small plate salads, a cup and a bowl of chowder, one billed as garlic parmesian bread- one glass wine- with tip $42.00. The parmesian bread was gooey and poor quality-like cheap pizza, but the decor, the service, the comfortable atmosphere was great.superb. it's approx one mile past Quinault Lodge

The salmon, any way it's cooked here, is definitely the featured dish and lives up to the restaurant's name. I ordered the dill salmon with baked potato and vegetables. The salmon was incredible, tender, smothered with a succulent, and creamy pesto-like consistency dill sauce. The baked potato a little overdone, served with a side of butter and dense sour cream....

Our fist night, we were amazed at the presentation, quality and taste of the salmon dishes. Prepared 3 different options (we had all three during our trips) they all were absolutely... More

During our 2 day visit to the area we ate at Quinault Lodge, the I.C. in Amanda Park and the Salmon House. The Salmon House was by far the best experience of the three. The food was good with appropriate portions and a fair price. Jennifer, our server was super friendly and efficient. We wished there had been more vegetarian... More
