We just walked across the street to the restaurant and had a great meal both nights we were there. The view is great. We watched the lake, the mountains and the geese.

One of the best meals we have ever had in the Pacific Northwest. Arrived at 4:00PM when the restaurant opened and people were already waiting. When we left about 6:00 it was nearly full. They don't take reservations but do have take out. Be prepared for a restful meal. Everything is custom cooked and if you are in a hurry... More

There is nothing fancy about this restaurant, but as many have mentioned, it's a great view and the hummingbirds are fun to watch. We went without a reservation, but were seated within the 15 minutes they said it would be. Since there isn't a lot of restaurant choice in the area, we weren't really expecting a lot, but my husband... More

Our last (and only) night in the area, we had dinner here on the recommendation of our Innkeeper. The view of the lake was amazing, plus they had hummingbird feeders at most of the windows and we could watch the hummers dart around and stop for a drink! The food (broiled salmon, rice pilaf and fresh beans) was delicious, plus... More

We are more than pleased we visit here on our second night at Lake Quinault. It's a Saturday night and without a reservation we are seated at 8:00 with no wait. Staff is very friendly and attentive. The restaurant sits close to Lake Quinault with beautiful panoramic vistas of the lake. There are humming bird feeders attracting these beauties just... More

Okay, I know it was the 4th of July weekend, but staff for it people! We waited 20-30 minutes to get waited on and 45-60 minutes for our food. My granddaughter found a bug in her spaghetti, and they said they were cooking new for her but 5 minutes later they came back out with a bowl full. They should... More

Nothing in Lake Quinault happens fast. Once you embrace that you will be happier. Dinner at the Salmon House will take awhile, but it will be tasty. I am pretty picky about my salmon, I hate when it is overcooked. My salmon was amazing and well seasoned.

Lemon Dill Salmon was to die for! My husband and I ordered it based on other reviews, and it did not disappoint! Cooked to perfection, delightfully seasoned,served with fresh veggies and baked potatoe. Good service too. Very reasonably priced for such good seafood. (Around $20 a plate).

We spent the day enjoying the many sights around the lake and I had been looking forward to dinner at the Salmon House all day after reading the reviews. We got there around 5:00 and were seated immediately. We ordered the tempura fried mushrooms and bacon wrapped scallops for appetizers. For the main course we had baked salmon, tempura fried...
