We ate at Lake Crescent with family who live in the area, and frequent the restaurant. I wanted to go with a "four," but my wife insisted it was a "five." So we'll be generous... The atmosphere of the dining room is somewhat upscale, with a nice view of the lake. The waiter was very helpful, and split some orders... More

We stopped for lunch and a dose of civilization during our camping trip in the Olympic National Forest. The Lodge, the restaurant and the grounds are beautiful and well maintained. The restaurant appears as an upscale dining experience and the prices match. Lunch for the two of us with an iced tea and a soda, two cups of soup, and... More

While staying at the lodge I had dinner at the restaurant twice. Both nights I was lucky enough to get a table by the window (it's worth waiting for it). Can't beat a great view. The food was really yummy and the service very friendly. It's rather on the pricy side but very worth it. The also have a nice... More

Even though it was was a bit expensive (not unexpected), we thoroughly enjoyed the food, service and the experience. I had the "Washington State Hot Smoked Salmon Salad"...it was wonderful.... More

Food options were pretty decent, but would have liked more options in all reality. Food quality was very good, and service fluctuated depending on which waiter/waitress you had. One night we were served quickly, another night it took a while to get a menu. Most entrees were in the $30+ range, drinks around $10.

Lodge that has been built over 80 years ago creates nice cozy atmosphere for restaurant. Even if you sit in a bar. The best place is certainly to enjoy your food or even just a drink in sunroom with panoranic view of beautiful lake Crescent. Food is not exceptional, but good with nice service

My close friend had her rehearsal dinner here. The servers we had were very tentative, food came out as ordered and was delicious. The view of the beach was beautiful.
