My husband loved the elk chops - meaty and well seasoned in a huckleberry glaze. I loved our mussels as appetizers and the beet salad. Atmosphere is a little dim but waiter service helped create a relaxing, unrushed setting.

I was at Crater Lake years ago. Well, a lot of years ago and I didn't feel I could afford to stay there. I tried this year, but they were booked. However, we enjoyed a wonderful late lunch in the dining room. Our server, Arthur, was excellent. We enjoyed him very much. The food was very good, but not necessarily... More

Crater Lake Lodge has two eating areas. One is the more formal Lodge Dining Room and the other is the Commons Area. This review is for the Commons Area. We had late reservations for the dining room before we realized that nearly the same menu was served at the small tables in the Common Areas. We canceled our dining room... More

Breakfast at the Crater Lake Lodge is served in the large formal dining room. No reservations are needed for breakfast. The portions were large and very tasty. We ordered a Denver-style omelet with potatoes, pancakes, and bacon at a cost of $22+tip. I chose not to partake of a glass of orange juice at the high cost of $4.50. It... More

Waiter didn't know the menu. The food was terrible (dried out and cold). The prices were very high ($99 for two and no deserts or drinks). No other choice to eat since the nearest town is 45 minutes away. Bring a bag dinner.

We stayed at Crater Lake Lodge for two nights and ate in the Dinning Room both nights and had breakfast both mornings. We felt we had no alternative as it looked better than the other options in and around the park. The first and second nights were very different experiences. The first was poor in terms of food and service.... More

First plus, the best dining in the park! Second plus, the setting is fabulous! Third plus, they will serve appetizers, soup etc. in the great room if you don't have a dining room reservation (which I would recommend if you want to sit at a table and dine). First minus, our dinners, while acceptable were not really exceptional. We both... More

Well, I'm hardly the first person to note that the Crater Lake Lodge dining room has potentially great ambience, but the experience of eating there leaves you shaking your head, particularly if, like us, you'd been looking forward to the much advertised great Pacific Northwest lodge dining experience. To give credit where credit is due, the food itself was OK,... More

The lodge has a back desk with rocking chairs with a great view of the deep blue lake. A great place to drink a beverage and have a bite to eat. They serve drinks and appetizers on the deck. We visited twice and ate the mushroom bruschetta with balsamic vinegar which was excellent. The service was mixed. The first time... More

We were presently surprised at how quickly our party of eight was seated. Service was very good, with thoughtful accommodation for a special need menu adjustment. The food was good and we all enjoyed our lunches. Following lunch we took the opportunity to take our wine on the lovely veranda, overlooking spectacular Crater Lake..
