The food was always good and we enjoyed good service from men and women who were able to give helpful advice on trails to hike.

First off, people need to stop complaining about how expensive the food is here. They get limited shipments & it has to be trucked all the way up from the Central Valley probably, which = not cheap. It is less expensive than most other options around here for what you get though. The only thing that may seem like a real rip-off is $3 for one little scoop of probably Dreyer's ice cream.

With that said, the ceiling fans need to be cleaned. BADLY. There was dust flying everywhere off of them.

Seems that everywhere in the park all the employees are college interns who can't speak any English. Except here. Still college age people, but very professional & good wait staff. We were here right as schools were starting so a lot of the staff we had seen was gone by the last night of our stay at the lodge. Yet the quality of the service & food remained the same, something that is hard to keep up.

The food itself I found was actually very good. Nothing amazing but nothing terrible. The only food I had a problem with was breakfast. We quickly learned though to grab the food from the bottom of the buffet trays because it is more cooked (like the French toast, pancakes, & ESPECIALLY the bacon). The only BAD food I had here was the eggs. Completely bland, rubbery & stuck together. A slight negative to my dinner was the ribeye I had was drowned in Worcester sauce.

(Breakfast)
We had the breakfast buffet adults $13, kids $6.50 - it was pricey but we expected that. They had eggs, bacon, sausage, cut up fruit (honeydew, canteloupe), oatmeal, assorted pastries, french toast, pancakes, bagels, toast.
(Dinner)
The second night, we had reservations for dinner at the Peaks Restaurant (inside the lodge) - the food was just okay and pricey but again we knew this going in and had planned accordingly, spent $100 for 2 adults and 2 kids including dessert. I asked the server what cut of meat the flat iron steak was - she had no idea and went to ask, when she returned
she told me it was top sirloin - I knew at least that much that she was incorrect. The views from the dinning area are amazing though.
Overall the food was just okay and very overpriced. We probably wouldn't eat here again, would go to Lodgepole market/deli instead.

First off, the chairs are far too uncomfortable to enjoy dinner. Secondly, the food wasn't that good to charge us extra for a side salad. The place was hot on the day we visited and overall it was a terrible resturant that needs a better menu, lower prices, and better seating.
