“What an amazing experience. Can't wait to return!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

I read a few of the mixed reviews on here and was a little nervous, but the restaurant was truly fabulous.

My husband, daughter and my mother (visiting from the East Coast) had brunch on a foggy Sunday. There was very little view, but it still had a magical feel to it.

The room itself is a sort of blend of lodge and arts and crafts and is cozy and yet also elegant. My husband and daughter chose their big ol' breakfast that has multiple courses. The one slight question we had was did they get the short end of the stick as their food came out together (the fruit course was served on one plate for them to share). Truly, it didn't matter as there was MORE than enough, but it was an odd way to go about it.

I had a omelet and my mother had the Eggs Benedict. Everything was delicious, but it was the little touches that elevate this restaurant.

The coffee service is fabulous ... so many choices, we tried them all.

The Heaven from Honey theatrics was so much fun and the bun with honey was divine.

We had a truly memorable experience and will be bringing all our out of town guests up for the experience.

My ONLY small suggestion is to have more bussers .... our waiter was fully sat and most tables were at capacity (that is, four people at a four top rather than 2) ... so he was super busy. We did have to wait just a bit on several occasions for a refill on coffee -- a busser (our waiter also appeared to have to clear all his tables) or perhaps second waiter who went around and refilled and checked on people would've been a HUGE asset.

“Food is good, view is great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This is an upscale, white tablecloth restaurant with the food and service to go with it. Go because you're treating yourself. Don't plan to rush out of there. Either get a table with a view of the Falls or get a table in front of the fireplace if you prefer. Menu is small but with enough variety everyone will find something they like. Many menu items feature the locally made honey.

“Fabulous service, delicious food, memorable day!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

A group of friends with three small children visited the Salish Dining Room for brunch last weekend, and it was phenomenal. They had reserved a private room for us, with large windows and a balcony overlooking the falls. Our server was wonderful, and the food was just perfect. Everyone had a fantastic time! Thanks!

“Breakfast forty years later”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013 via mobile

Came here for a concert at the casino and spent the night. Seating was prompt and service was attentive. Sat at the head of the falls watching the fog drift in and out. Started with coffee, good flavor, I usually drink it black but was tempted by the "condiment tray" white and dark chocolate shavings, vanilla infused heavy whipped creme along with the standards. Wife had the eggs Benedict , Hollandaise had a bit to much lemon, ham was nothing special. She wouldn't order it again. I had ham hock hash and poached eggs, good flavor, maybe needed three eggs instead of two to balance out the potatoes. Biscuits with special butter were good, wish I could have tried the oatmeal without ordering the farm breakfast special.

“BEAUTIFUL EVEN IN THE FOG”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We were leaving Seattle after a one week coastal trip and had to stop on our way out at the former Snoqualmie Lodge, now known as Salish Lodge & Spa. Having been 20+ years since visiting this establishment, I hesitated after seeing some of the reviews.

Our experience was very positive, with the service, cozy atomosphere near the window and wonderful Brunch. Beginning with fresh squeezed juice, full flavored coffee and pillowy scrambled eggs.........not a morsel left on any plate. Some ate their pancakes which were devoured as well.

I noticed at the next table a couple which were vegetarian and they were accomodated as well, with their brunch looking just as inviting as the next.

Even though some were disappointed with food/service or whatever..........we found it to be just as charming and worth going a little out of the way to experience it so many years later.
