Our family dinner at the Half Moon Lake Restaurant couldn't have been better. We started with a relaxed glass of wine on the deck overlooking the beautiful Half Moon Lake. For dinner we moved into the beautiful dining room where we enjoyed an outstanding meal. We really appreciated the "kids menu" for the kids in the group. Everyone left happy.... More

It takes a while to get to the Half Moon but trust me it is worthy. Amazing place wit a beautiful view over the lake. Food was excellent, from the appetizers to the main courses and sides. Loved the atmosphere.

Best hospitality and gorgeous view from the inside and back patio. I had dropped off 4 friends to hike Half Moon Lake and needed a spot to sit waiting on their return. Found the Lodge but it was closed on Monday. I heard talking from inside the saloon and stepped inside to see if I could get a beer to... More

We happened to stop in Pinedale on an overnight visit with friends that also happened to be our anniversary. The hotel proprietor where we were staying recommended the Half-Moon Lake Lodge as one of the best dining places in town, particularly since the current chef had arrived. Having eaten there many years ago and knowing the picturesque setting we took... More

We had lunch over the holiday weekend at Half Moon Lake Lodge outside Pinedale WY. It is a lovely rustic lodge, full of seating inside and outside. And the outside deck - with views of the Lake and forest was amazing. Just beautiful. You couldn't beat the water lapping on the rocks underneath the decks as boats created wake and... More

Haven't been up to Half Moon since last year. The new chef brings it all together. Incredible deck views, fun new drink specials (try the Stubborn Mule and the Cucumber Martini) and fair priced appetizers. Chef Nate served up an amazing Short Rib Wellington amuse-bouche. And the daintily breaded Calimari with Aioli melted in your mouth. I'll be back to... More

This incredible mountain range is one of North America's great natural wonders. There are many beautiful alpine lakes that can only be experienced by hiking, backpacking or horseback.

I would like to give our visit rave reviews, as I LOVE to vacation at Half Moon Lodge, but I can't. The appetizer and dessert were the only good part of the meal. I got the Penne pasta with vodka sauce. The pasta was undercooked. They also put shrimp in my dish with the tails still on. It is very... More

Were camped down the road at a USFS campground and too tired to go back into town for dinner. Wandered down to see if the lodge had food and were pleasantly surprised.

There were five of us for a birthday celebration around Christmas time. The manager and staff were helpful and conversational, the food was good. I didn't see the view because it was night.
