We went on a Friday night and our lodge said we would need to make reservations which they did for us. They called at 5:30 and the earliest we could get in was 8pm. The place was packed and VERY noisy. The wait staff were extremely busy and were like ants, they were everywhere, but the service was extremely slow.
Friday night they had clam clowder, which we love. So, where were the clams? It was actually a extremely thick potato soup that had too much flour in it and no clams. The soup comes with dinner so if they are serving it, pass. IHOP has a much better clam chowder!
We ordered the shrimp cocktail that came with 8 large shrimps in a large tall dish. They were pretty good. The cocktail sauce was tangy and in the bottom of the dish was more cut up shrimp in the cocktail sauce. The cost was high $12, however. We also ordered the scampi and rack of lamb. There were 8 shrimps and was very good. Also came with fresh veggies that were excellent and rice pilaf. Cost $19. The lamb was overlooked and just okay. Also came with garlic mashed potatoes and the fresh veggies. My husband does not care for garlic mashed and asked for a sub of baked potato which the waitress said was fine. However when the meal came there was mashed potatoes on it and the waitress said they were out of baked potatoes. So she brought rice pilaf instead. However the table next to us was served about 5 minutes later and they all baked potato. Cost about $20.
This pace may be better on a week day instead of the weekend.
But as others have said, Shaver Lake is not a draw for fine restaurants, so you have to take what is there. And yes the rest rooms ate outside!
