We had dinner here as we were staying at the Volcano House which had no restaurant when we stayed (due to a refurbishment).
The lodge is lovely and cozy and although we booked relatively late, we were made to feel very welcome.
There's a decent variety of food on the menu (steaks, raw fish, Italian, vegetarian options, awesome home made bread) and the staff are lovely and attentive without being intrusive.
I had the Antelope Filet which was a revelation for me. It was cooked to absolute perfection (that is, barely cooked at all) and is wonderfully lean.
Cost wise, it's not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for here and I would recommend the restaurant to anyone. If you are European, make note, reservations are a good idea and like most places in this part of the USA, the restaurant closes relatively early.
