Visited Crater Lake with friends and decided to eat at the Crater Lake Lodge dining room for a nice, relaxing dinner. The dining room is what you'd expect in this location..rustic and well done. That is the positive part. I ordered the pork loin and my another ordered the bison meatloaf. My pork loing was grey in color, obviously microwaved to overly wekll done and tasted like rubber. The vegetables were cold. The server was concerned and polite, and returned my food to the kitchen with the offer of another dish. I declined as my friend's bison meatloaf was cool to the touch and his vegetables were cold as well. He tried to eat a portion of his but left most of it on the plate. The server removed my meal from the bill but left his on. He complained but to no avail.
This dining room is run by Xanterra, the vendor to most of the national parks.. It is in no way a fine dining experience and the prices (thirty to forty dollars per entree, plus extra for salad, etc) is way overpriced for the quality of the food. I would avoid this dining room and instead eat at the cafeteria..the food is likely better and the prices much more appropriate.
