“Poor service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 6, 2013 via mobile

The food is somewhat above average but the service is poor. I'm not sure if they are understaffed. What should have been about an hourlong meal two nights in a row took over an hour and a half. Too long to take orders, too long to deliver food and much much too long to bring the check.

“Amazing view, beautiful dining room.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

A great place to stop if your traveling through Sequoia National Park. Nice relaxing atmosphere. I had the third pound burger with sweet potato fries. The burger was just ok, it was a frozen patty. Given this, I would assume most things on there menu are frozen. Although they are a long ways from anywhere, so getting frequent deliveries of fresh food could be a problem.

“Need to focus”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013 via mobile

The location is fantastic in the heart of Sequoia. The lodge provides captured clientele. The menu is small so it should be manageable. For the most part the wait staff was friendly, however our server had no developed skills, especially for a pricey establishment. It was a small group of 6 adults and 2 children which kicks in the 18 percent gratuity which implies extra work and attention needed. None of which took place. Server only checked with 3 adults for drinks had to ask for after he took orders to the kitchen. All 3 of the $18 hamburgers asked for well and came out rare ( common for a frozen pattie) pork chops were grilled and lacking much flavor of the apple glaze the were claimed to have and the wild rice lacked any flavor or heat. Kids meal were lacking presentation and desserts were not served because the ordered drinks. The price would be tolerable had the kitchen had any idea on seasoning and flavors. The house sourdough bread was great, but had to ask for butter what a concept. So $170 later we enjoyed each others company and left to snack in our rooms.

“Expensive”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2013

Staff are friendly and tentative. Lovely views of the forest. The prices though are extortionate!! Salad was expensive, tasteless and very small. I've had much better and bigger for half the price. Salad is $10, burger is $18, Pasta is $18! You have very little option than to pay it, as there's no other restaurant around, and no microwave in the rooms.

“Relaxing Experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 13, 2013

My husband and I first came here in August of '12. We were pleasantly surprised to stumble upon this lovely restaurant. We were camping in the park and decided to treat ourselves to a wonderful lunch. Hubby had the black and bleu burger with general sherman ipa and I had the cheese plate with a glass of champagne. Both were amazing dishes and our server Alison was such a gracious hostess. Because of this positive experience, we came back for my husbands birthday Feb '13. We were not disappointed this time. Alison was there again and our dinner experience was a dream. If you like beets, get the beet salad, delicious!! Thank you to the crew at the peaks for making our experiences so memorable!!
