We were camping nearby and decided to eat here for breakfast. There were only a few basic items on the menu, nothing creative or different. The prices were low, the service was slow ( took 25 minutes for 2 eggs and toast) the place was cute and historic.

No explanation for the slow service, below average food quality, forgetting to serve wine, etc. We left wondering whether they were short of help, had a new cook, or what. Would not risk returning to find out.

We love to come here for brunch during our family reunions. I apologize right now to anyone who tried to eat when we were there because we took over the restaurant. There were 40 of us from 2 years old up to 82. The staff is wonderful. The cook is incredible. I highly recommend making the drive to this cozy... More

Stayed in Maple Syrup and this was an excellent choice. Very quiet and relaxing. Access to row boats a nice touch. Was worried the shared bath house might be an issue, but no problems at all. We prepared our own meal one night and 2ed night dined at the restaurant. Very good food and attentive service. Modest prices for the... More

This is a one room dining room, with very friendly staff. The night we were there, there was only one woman for all 7 tables. So, the service was slow but since we popped in without a reservation, we were happy to be patient. We found the food average for above-average prices. There was a short Wine by the glass... More

We just celebrated my husband's birthday dining at Packard Lake Lodge. The Lodge is located in the Lakes Basin Region of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Northern California. Friends had highly recommended Packard Lake Lodge. And what a treat it was eating at this small mountain Lodge! We had a gourmet dinner. The salad was great with Packard Lake's own... More

We found the rustic timber lodge by the lake. Reservations are suggested. My husband had the tender steak and we shared a great wine. I had the Seared Salmon with Berry Compote. It was hot and tender with cool and sweet topping. I have never had that before, but it was the perfect combination!

Full disclosure. We were only here for a wedding. The wedding was performed on a rock above the lake and the lodge. It was one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to and there were many skeptics. But loved the feel of the lodge tucked in behind Packer Lake. I would like to go back...

Nice drive up Gold Lake Road to cabin resort. Changed hands in 2012 due to death of previous owner. Menu changed a little. Still a favorite
