“Worst part of our stay, rude staff, awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 18, 2013

The staff was rude the evening we went, and the food was frozen & instant. We paid $7.00 for 3 small kids drinks. The drink machines outside were empty and we wanted a coke to go to the room. So we had no choice but to pay that. The view from the restaurant is amazing though!

“Terrible Restaurant Menu”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2013

In the past we were always pleased with the luncheon menu at Hawk’s Nest restaurant but this time we were very disappointed as the selection was not only horrible but also overpriced. This change in menu is apparently due to a change in restaurant management. With no decent menu selections, not even a decent sandwich, we reluctantly ended up having burgers which were not very good. Consequently, this is the last time we will eat at this restaurant.
The only upside to this restaurant is the excellent view of the river below.

“Great view, so-so food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

Do not go to Hawks Nest for the food. The food quality was unpredictable, sometimes pretty good, other time lousy.

“Nothing special”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Truck stop food at steakhouse prices. Lodge is nice and restaurant is convenient but probably should have drove into town. Staff was friendly. 55.00 for 2 meals and 1 sandwich. 3 beverages

“Good food, great view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

I had delicious white fish with salsa that I really enjoyed. The service is very friendly and you can sit right at the windows on the gorge--beautiful view.
