“yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

great food in front of a fire. There was only a few other people so the service was really good. We had the trout and onion soup and shared both between the 2 of us. Soooo delicious.

“Great Food Great VIew”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

WE ate supper and breakfast here - and I didn't want to leave. Had a window seat for both meals (the only place to sit in my opinion). During supper, we watch a couple of deer grazing and wandering outside. So cool.

Supper was fantastic. The restaurant strives to serve local foods in season and they dod an excellent job. I had a flat iron steak and my traveling buddy had red trout - both cooked wonderfully, presentation excellent and portions were very appropriate.

For breakfast, it was buffet time - tremendous. Great fruits, juices, various egg dishes, pastries, sausage and bacon and just what you would expect. Buffet was kept well stock and the hot foods were hot.

Servers at both meals were delightful, helpful and attentive.

Reservations for supper were important - especially if you want a window seat. For breakfast, before they opened, there was complimentary coffee in the lounge.

And speaking of the lounge - free WIFI that was decent.

“Not nearly as good as it used to be”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

I used to visit this hotel and restaurant about twice a year from 2000-2005. Their food used to be great. However, my last experience was absolutely awful. The positives: The view. That's it. It is absolutely spectacular. Save yourself the hassle and see it from the trail behind the restaurant.The food is pricey, but that is expected. I don't complain about the price. However, I will complain if the price is high and the food is absolutely awful. Denny's or Coco's would have prepared these dishes better at a fraction of the price. First night, I had a pasta with butternut squash and walnuts. Pasta was old and reheated. Sauce was gummy. It was leftover pasta. My wife had the vegetarian tamales with polenta ($19). The green sauce was most likely out of a can. The polenta was gooey and the tamales were absolutely dreadful. They were old, and microwaved. If you are going to serve older tamales, you should at least steam them. My son's french fries were the only decent thing that was ordered. Bill and tip were $60. Thinking it was a fluke, we went for breakfast the next morning. It is really difficult to screw up breakfast. I was wrong. I ordered an omelette. It was severely overcooked. It was tough. It came with potatoes that were old. You know when potatoes have that withered look after they've been in the fridge too long? My son ordered a side order of potatoes, which arrived in the same condition as mine. My wife ordered the pancakes, and they were cold and absolutely unappetizing. She had to drown them in syrup to make them edible. Bill and tip were about $28. I think that the fact that there is nowhere else to eat in the immediate area makes them think they can get away with this. Unfortunately, they can. It's sad, because I remember how great their food used to be.

“Expensive but nice for a couple's dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 26, 2012

It was nice to relax with a nice wine and enjoy the lodge atmosphere. Service was nice but waiter started out a bit rude but warmed up to us and we joked with him. The food was pretty good and presented nice, my salmon had a berry sauce that was really salty.

“Nice View.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

It was a really nice view and they have nice food. You might need to make a reservation for dinner. It was busy when I went.
