“Charming location, good food, full bar”
Review of Packer Lake Lodge

Packer Lake Lodge
Cuisines: American
Restaurant details
Reviewed August 14, 2012

This is a charming and rustic restaurant set on a beautiful lake a couple of miles off of Lakes Basin Road. We got the impression that most diners were lodge guests staying in the various cabins on the property, but we didn't have any problem getting a table early in the evening. You can enjoy a cocktail or glass of wine on the front porch of the restaurant overlooking Packer Lake. The dining room itself is cozy, with only a smattering of tables, each candlelit. The food was solidly good; we both had the ribs and a salad. We skipped dessert, but as we had our fly rods in the car, we fished on Packer Lake until it got dark. That was a sweet ending.

We ate breakfast at Packer Lake Lodge twice on our recent trip to the Lakes Basin area. Incredibly reasonable prices, friendly small-town service, and wonderful food. The place is quintessential (SP?) camp style and looks like it belongs in the Adirondacks rather than the Sierras!
We eat here every time we are in the area and can't wait to get lucky enough to stay in a cabin on the lake for a week sometime -

We stumbled across this quaint lodge by accident several years ago hiking around the Lake Basin area of Sierra County. We have enjoyed several dinners there over the years and have not had a bad meal yet. Our latest meal was in July of 2007 and we could not have had a better meal with exceptional service. The lodge was filled to capacity on the Friday night that we were there but the service was up to par despite the crowd. I highly recommend this place for any travelers passing through the area

We ate dinner here last August and it was terrible. I ordered a steak, which was half inedible gristle. My husband ordered the lamb and hated the sauce. The dinners weren't cheap- over $20.
