My husband and I have been to Camp 18 Restaurant many times but since 2019 today was our first trip back since Covid ended. We noticed the menu was different and favorites like Bread Pudding were no long available. This has been a trademark of...their for years. We ordered the beef stew which has 8 bay leaves still in it and the meat was mostly fat. We wonder if it has changed hands since our last trip in 2019.More

Passed be this several times on this road, like alot of roads going to the coast its busy and really need to stay on your driving. However this time the traffic was slower and WOW and I realized this was a restaurant road side attraction,...not just a logging mill. Being a photographer I stopped there walked around the grounds with my companion Jovi and shot pictures and read history went over to the main house read the menu sounded soo good. However they were extremely and its was an extremely hot day!! I could not leave my companion in the car and I dont think he would be invited inside :-) So I passed on the restaurant I will be back when I am in that area again Its an awesome place even if you just walk the groundsMore

Stopped again for lunch on Sunday and found the place very busy and had to wait as they held the tables for 4-5 for bigger groups. I suggest they get out the old cross-cut saw and cut the table for 20 into 5 tables for...4!More

I’ve been passing this place the last couple years on the way to seaside so we finally stopped for lunch. The decor inside is really fun to look at. Our sever was really great, very nice and checking on us often. Now the food was...a mix of good and average. The country fried steak was not that good. The batter didn’t have any flavor but the mashed potatoes were sooo good. They were homemade and had a creamy texture and very buttery. The green beans with bacon and onions were very good too. Everyone else liked the fries the best instead of the entrees. So I guess they do better with their side dishes then main dishes for lunch. It’s the worth the stop.More

Beautiful, beautiful setting. Quick service, my fish and chips were delicious. The gift shop is fun and things aren’t overpriced.

6th visit in about 4 years. The old timber and the building are impressive, and they’ve added a few items to the parking lot museum. After lunch, stretch your legs or walk the dog near the stream. Kids will like the property. Comfort food and...everything is “fine”. Don’t think the cobblers or salads are that special. The chowder is hit or miss, the chili is more consistent, if a bit sweet. I like the brook trout. The location is really convenient. If driving towards Cannon, it’s 30 minutes shy of the destination. I like to grab an early dinner here, which opens up the evening for other things. That also means $19 entrees, as opposed to what might be waiting at the hotel. (Stephanie Inn restaurant is no longer gourmet, tbh). I am writing this at the restaurant; cellular is weak but existing.More

We always stop here for breakfast or lunch on our way to the northern coast. Eggs benedict, cinnamon roll french toast or club sandwich, all very good.

Very cool building and definitely worth a stop to see it. But take a peak and move on - the food is not great. Had beef stew which had very little meat and the cornbread was dry and tasteless. There’s so much potential here, but...it’s just not there now. They need to work on the food quality ASAP.More

Stopped in on the way to the coast. We were seated and waited quite awhile before receiving attention. We ordered the bacon cheeseburger 3/5, grilled cheese 3/5, lumberjack burger 3/5, and clubhouse sandwich 3/5. Server forgot my beer. Ordered Marion berry dessert 3/5. The crust...piece is too thick and doughy. The French fries were the only thing above average.More

The restraint is in a HUGE log cabin and is very impressive from both the outside and inside! There are many photo-ops around the property with train cars, wood animals and logging machinery. The staff was very friendly and great at what they do! We...had a table right next to the window where we could watch the birds, they have tons of bird-feeders to encourage the birds to hang out where guests can watch them! We saw at least 4 different bird breeds! Fun decor is throughout the whole place; wood statues of dancing bears, antler chandeliers, old-time photos of loggers/logging trucks and a big fireplace on one end. Even the bathrooms are decorated! The food itself was good with classic american fare like burgers, salads and steaks. Generous portions! We got the fish and chips, 5 large fish fillets atop a mound of fries with lemon slices and a large side of tartar sauce. Delish! The water was very good and sweet-tasting compared to city water, they must have a spring or a well. Prices were good considering how much food you get and the free museum outside. The waitstaff is top-notch and knows their stuff! There is a lounge upstairs that looked really swanky, but we were there with my son, maybe next time! 100% worth the stop on the way to the coast!More

When going to the coast we love stopping for breakfast. This time I was not happy. I ordered a bacon omelette. It was horrible. It was not an omelette. All they did was pour the eggs in the pan. Once the eggs were cooked they...threw on the bacon and cheese and folded it in half. The bacon was so chopped up you couldn't pick it up with the fork. You had to scoop it up. Our friend had a sausage omelette and the sausage looked like ground up hamburger. The potatoes were barely warm.More

Visited for dinner. Ordered the 6 oz. Flat Iron Steak (cooked medium) with grilled onions & baked potato. It came with a side of green beans with bacon. The baked potato was barely warm enough to melt the 4 pads of butter. The green beans...was over cooked (soggy) like it was from a can. I gave them 4 points because they managed the wait time well (only 10 minutes at 6:00PM) and the wait staff was friendly and entertaining.More

My recent dining experience at Camp 18 has put a bad taste in my mouth, pun INtended. My family and I have always had a great experience coming here in the past years but today we experienced service way below what was expected. My mother,...my sister and all of our kids (11 people in total) ate here for dinner tonight and my sister and I both ordered the 12 oz NY steak medium. We don't like it bloody, or overcooked so we wanted some pink. When our steaks arrived at our table they were so well done that mine was charcoal burnt on the sides and they were both just plain dry and flavorless. When we brought it to the attention of the waitress, she said thats what a medium steak looks like... Now I want you to look up a steak wellness chart on google images and tell me if a medium steak is completely brown and burnt black on the sides. Even though the manager replaced those steaks with properly cooked ones, we were both pretty upset with this seeing as the steak was $30, the mac n cheese for my children was nasty Kraft from a box, and they charged us a %15 gratuity because our group was over 8 people. Even though I paid separately from my sister, whose party was NOT over 8 people, and they separated our kids across the entire building. Overall, the service and the attitude we received from this restaurant was dismissive and honestly felt disrespectful. I award ONE star only because the manager was trying his darndest to keep the place running. Everything else was lackluster. Thank you.More

We did not have reservations when we went and it was on the weekend. The restaurant is very big and roomy.
