About
Welcome to The Lodge, let the adventure begin! 'The Lodge' is a great spot for your business lunch, your family dinner, the night out with friends and the big games! We are famous for our slow-smoked BBQ - and our wide menu variety beyond that, but a great dining experience goes beyond the food! Bring your friend and family and relax & enjoy the 50' wide panoramic mountain scenery in the main dining room, or the 15' Jumbotron (South Florida's biggest LED TV) on the bar side. We serve 28 different draft beers and 12 of them on a self-tap beer wall that let's you try & pay by the ounce. Hang out by our 14' tall fireplace and watch the ski-lift run up and down the 'mountain'. And don't forget to

That's what we thought. The $18.95 skillet of Beef Brisket turned out to be small cubes of meat - more like an appetizer or kid's plate. And, unfortunately, pan fried trout tasted fishy, again. The side dishes were all very delicious but the stars of...More

This is your average sports bar that tries to bring in a Colorado setting in Florida. Been in a few times for lunch and drinks.
