I had the mushroom and endive soup along with the perfectly sauteed mussels. Heavenly! I ate at the bar and made fast friends!

We had dinner while staying in one of the cabins at Savage River. We started of with a Trio of Wild Sausage - they were savory and cooked to perfection. My dinner selection was the Wild Turkey Salmon with gingered carrots - again cooked to perfection and very delicious. My partner had the Quail and Waffles with a fig jam... More

If your looking for a beautiful country or romantic setting, this is the place. The item we enjoyed the most off the menu was the crab cake appetizer. One of the best I ever tasted. Their signature meatloaf dish was very enjoyable. The filet mignon lacked flavor and was a disappointment. The seafood dip appetizer was tasty, but the sausage... More

Worst experience ever! Booked a weekend here for my husband's birthday- the reviews on Trip Advisor looked amazing. We arrived Friday evening and were kind of disappointed by the cabin-all of the reviews talked about the amazing bathtubs/beds/etc. and it just didn't look anything like it had been described (the bed was extremely uncomfortable and the bathroom was average at...

Thank you for taking the time to let us know your thoughts on our business. As we discussed with you, at length, we are sorry that you found our hospitality sub par. There was a misunderstanding with the in-cabin dining option, as it is only offered before 5:00 p.m. or after 8:00 p.m., unfortunately the only times we can accommodate... More

We had several meals here while staying for the weekend, and they were ok, but not great. Meatloaf and salmon were probably the best options. Rabbit ragu was a little bland and came on top of undercooked pasta. It was supposedly a fresh pasta from some place local, so maybe the kitchen just didn’t know how to do fresh pasta.... More

We have dined at Savage River Lodge a few times before and always had a great experience. Unfortunately, this time it was not so good. The lodge was apparently busier than normal for this time of year and they were clearly overwhelmed. The service was very slow and the quality of the food was not what we expected. My husband...

We have tried the Lodge several times for breakfast and dinner. Although we like the dining room, we prefer to eat at the bar. The Lodge is absolutely beautiful and often has a crackling fire going.

Everyone loves the meatloaf- I appreciated the filet a bit more. Dessert you cannot go wrong with! Also a great place to try out if you are unfamiliar with wine-pairings. They have all of the recommended dishes right on the menu alongside what wine they recommend.
