My wife and I stayed in Quinault for two nights. Both nights we ate at the Salmon House. Everything was excellent. My wife had the blackened salmon and I had the dill. Our Waitress Jennifer was one of the best waitresses that we have ever had eating out anywhere. Jennifer makes some of the desserts. Ask for a dessert menu... More

This was our best dining experience in our ten day vacation in WA. The pan fried oysters were the best. I have been searching for fried oysters for 20 years. I live in Florida, and would return just for the oysters. My husband had the salmon, and he loved it. The portions are generous. Save room for dessert. We shared... More

I'm from MD so don't get Salmon that often. However, I had the Blackened Salmon here and I'm pretty certain you can't get better Salmon anywhere. It was absolutely delicious. The service was not great but who cares when you are eating such great seafood. Go and enjoy.

I was told that the Salmon House was better than the restaurant in the Quinalt Lodge so I wanted to see for myself. Take enough time not only to eat but to walk along the lake and visit the Big Spruce trail head and tree nearby. Wonderful.

4 stars for view, salmon OK. Went back a second night as dinner prices at lodge just too pricey. Clam chowder excellent, but only served 2 nights a week. Salad bar and vegetables ho hum.

Great views and loved the local oysters. A very pleasant dinner. We ate early, about 5 pm, and there was no waiting.

We stayed at the Lake Quinault lodge and visited this restaurant as an alternative to the hotel restaurant. We were not disappointed. The food was good, the service friendly and the prices fairly reasonable. We were lucky to get a table by the window overlooking the lake without reservation. Other guests arriving shortly after us were not so lucky, the... More

Ate here after Lake Quinault lodge couldn't feed its guests and it was well worth it. Although heavy on local seafood there were plenty of other options for my non fish eating husband to choose from. Great service and enjoyed over hearing the locals complain about the cougars eating all their pets, not what you hear in NZ

This was a very nice dining experience. The restaurant is casual, the service was good and the salmon was delicious. The restaurant is designed to give most people a view of the lake in both the dining room and lounge. No reservations are required and window seats fill up early so plan accordingly. Salmon is served in every way possible.... More

Yes the salmon is great and cooked a zillion different ways. Yes they have a wonderful lake location. But the decor was a turnoff and the service not much better than an average diner. Basically they take your order and you go to the salad bar. When they bring your dinner you have to ask them to take your salad... More
