Did not stay at the lodge. Stopped in the restaurant after a long first day in the park. Unfortunately we did not look at the menu before being seated. The prices are completely outrageous! We were just too embarrassed to leave at that point. We asked to sit at a table with a river view (four were empty) and were told that those were being held for people with reservations. Two of the tables remained unoccupied the entire time we were there. Our waitress forgot about us once the food came. Had the chicken and rib combo. The chicken was dried out as if it had been waiting for some time and was way over seasoned. The ribs had been cooking way too long too. There are a number of better options in town. Unfortunately we had to learn a lesson first. Take heed.
