We stopped at Cougar Lane as part of Jerry's Rogue Jet Boat trip. Reviews said that you can catch a ride up the steep hill from the boat to the restaurant, but there were none available (it's difficult for me to walk distances). But the food and service were very good. We had salmon burgers, tacos, and pulled pork. All... More

This restaurant is absolutely worth driving from Gold Beach to Agness for. My husband had incredible brisket, and I had the hand crafted veggie burger (let me underscore hand crafted, not something taken out of a freezer). They serve Arch Rock Beer, an award winning microbrewery (also local to Gold Beach). If you are a foodie, you love finding secret... More

We stopped here as part of Jerrys Jet Boats tours, and it was incredible. Jerry's offers a choice of three stops, and we selected Cougar Lane because of their menu. We were not disappointed. The food was great, the portion sizes were very generous. Totally recommend. If you're older, it might be wise to just share a meal because the... More

Since this was part of the Jerry's boat ride excursion, we expected poor overpriced food. Instead we received excellent service, food, beverages, at a reasonable price.

Nicely remodeled since the last time we were here - and the food & service was absolutely amazing! In our party, we had the brisket, pulled pork & cheeseburger and they were all wonderful and not super expensive. We were too full for the cobbler, unfortunately...but I later wished we would've ordered one to share, as I heard so many... More

Some of the best BBQ we have ever had, the brisket was incredible, the beans were amazing. This is saying a lot as we are BBQ and Smoke House fanatics, this was a surprise to us and truly great. We chose to eat outside on the deck overlooking the river with a choice of sun or shade tables. Also inside... More

The cobbler was a meal in itself but I also had the pulled pork sandwich plate. YUM! Everyone in our group thought the food was great as well... More

The waitress asked how our food was, and when I told her my brisket was dry and chewy and I almost choked on it, SHE DID NOT DO A THING ABOUT IT. Why ask then? It was like old roast beef turned into jerky. I know good BBQ (spent years in Texas), and that brisket does not belong on the... More

The food at Cougar Lane Lodge was all-around scrumptious. The sampler plate I ate from had delectable chicken, good ribs and pulled pork, as well as some decent sides, and that is not even mentioning the heavenly berry cobbler brought for dessert! I enjoyed everything I consumed at this restaurant. On top of that, my waiter was helpful and kind.... More
