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

We chose this on our Rouge River jet boat ride. Service was quick and food was very tasty with large enough sides to get filled up. Kids had burgers and they liked them. Wasn't a cheap meal but it was good.

I've eaten here twice, both times taking Jerry's Jet Boat tour. This time we took our elderly mom who didn't feel well after we got to Agnes. Denise, the manager, was amazing. She took care of mom like an angel. And the food was excellent. Service was quick. Highly recommended!

Fantastic restaurant, great staff, friendly atmosphere. Great menu and food was superb. Great deck that is right next to the Rogue River. Has an attached bar for adult only dining. Very clean facility. A beautiful drive from Newport. Neat place. A little bit of heaven here!

A beautiful drive of about 45 minutes from Gold Beach, this is worth the trip. Wish we had stayed longer. The cabin had all the comforts with a rear deck looking out at the fabulous Rogue River. The restaurant specializes in BBQ and is it delicious! We had the sampler plate with different meats. We chose a side of Cole... More
