Food is terrific, and the Wine List is beyond compare. There is an entree for every palate, terrific service, and a congenial bar.

The food was very good but the appetizer (crab dip) took a very long time to come out at dinner. Service in general was very slow. We waited quite a while for our server to even greet us at lunch despite there being only one other table seated.

Hi jguard85, We really appreciate you leaving feedback! While we are a slower-paced establishment, both of specifics you mentioned are against our standards. We'll be sure to share this info with our management team. Hope to see you back again! Jan More

Food preparation was excellent but the timing of the service was off somewhat. We had not finished our delicious appetizers before the entrees arrived - the first two nights we dined here. On the third night - we did not order our entrees until the appetizer arrived. The food preparation was excellent.

Seven family members dined here last evening and it was very impressive. We were seated in the loft and to ourselves which made it even more comfortable, memorable time. The service was incredible! Food and wine were great! Four of us ordered the vegan entree which was delicious! Only negative comment and warning to fellow vegetarians and vegans I have... More

We own a restaurant and my husband LOVED his filet...he had it two nights in a row. All of the food was fresh, innovative, and really plentiful. I need to go on a diet now!

Recently Mrs. J and I and aNother couple went up to Savage River Lodge for a winetasting with pineapple, the wine rep. It takes a sturdy car to get to the lodge but once you're there, it's beautiful. We had 5 great wines with appetizers made by their chief chef. Servers were professional and friendly. The wine rep Pineapple is... More

Exemplary lodgings, both cabins and yurts, in middle of peaceful mountain woods. Loved the morning basket of breakfast goodies as well as all the niceties provided in the lodgings. If you've never slept in a yurt, give it a try - it's nothing like any camping you've done before! Best of all, the restaurant in the lodge is wonderful. Excellent... More

We had dinner here on a Sunday evening at 6:00. There were two tables with little children nearby who were crying and running around. I'm ok with that but there are some people who would be bothered by that. We had a comfortable booth and our server was very friendly and knowledgeable. We shared a crab soup which was really...

I have read the glowing reviews by others and I like to post good reviews, but this Lodge needs to improve on their service. A group of 4 of us stayed at the Lodge, which has beautiful grounds & accomodations, no complaint there. I would rate them at a 4.5. The afternoon of our arrival we had a great lunch... More
