This is really nice place to enjoy the deck and look out at Priest Lake. The service was really good even though they were very busy. The Bbq burger was good but I miss their Bbq menu as they had really good smoked meats before.

After a wonderful and relaxing few days visiting Priest Lake, we wanted to treat our hosts to an evening out. They chose Cavanaugh's, and it was exactly right! Lovely setting, varied menu, helpful waitstaff. The Cobb salad and the Salmon were both delicious. And don't dare skip the huckleberry cobbler for dessert! Oh my.

We have only been here for Sunday Brunch. The food is really good. Descent variety of food. I would like to see other food that is not just breakfast foods. The service was excellent. We will go back again, when we are up there.

Stopped by on our annual visit to Priest Lake and really wish we would have had time for a return visit! Great service, our server Andrea was courteous and attentive. Fabulous food, I had the fish and chips and it was great. Cooked to perfection and cut into small pieces so you could enjoy it. My husband has the fish... More

Really a beautiful view and setting. Good service. Plenty of staff. No more steak, ribs or waffle fries. They must have their reasons. I don't get it.

I've been to Cavanaugh's many, many times. The chef is great and the menu is more affordable now with a good selection. You can't beat the view with the outside seating with heated umbrella's if you need them. Dave is my favorite bartender! Great service from him!

Cavanaugh's was recommended to us as a nice place to dine at Priest Lake. We went there for the first time last weekend and that would also be our last visit. We waited for a long time to be greeted and one of the patrons in the restaurant even came up to us to tell us about an empty table... More

Our Grandaughter chose Cavanaugh's at Priest Lake for her Destination Wedding on Pi Day 3/14/15. The Lodge and Staff went above and beyond to make her day perfect.

We had 15 family members gathered for a farewell to the lake ages 2 to 77. The staff put togather several tables to accommodate us in a very short time. We ordered ahead of dinner for the toddlers, we had drinks for the adults, we split orders and we split the bill 5 ways. They accommodated us in every way... More
