“A great find that delivered perfectly”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

This small but neat place is affiliated with the Cedar Glen Lodge on N. Lake Blvd. It is found easily, but there is only street parking. The ambience is great - six tables only, quiet and bright. The service is excellent, and the food (we had chicken and salmon) wonderful. The deserts our neighboring table ordered were not that impressive, so we did not order and could not comment based on experience. The price is very reasonable. We loved this place and recommend it fully. Do make reservation early if you can, for space is very limited.

“Great Food-Get the Truffle Fries”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013

The food was excellent. Service was also excellent. The truffle fries were delicious, as was the flank steak and Arugula salad. Wonderful restaurant and from the looks of it, family friend also.

“Rustic Reward”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2013

While staying at the wonderful lodge, we had the opportunity to eat dinner at the Rustic Lodge. It was so good the first time that rather than looking for an alternative we simply decided to try some of the other things we'd been looking at the night before. Each meal was fantastic, with excellent service and a reasonable price to boot. I highly recommend this as a dining option whether you're staying at the CGL or not.

“A must durning your visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

We were staying at Cedar Glen Lodge so it was a short walk to dinner. It is worth the drive if you are not staying there. I had the filet whole others had the chicken and scallops. You know it is a good meal when there is silence at the table! The cheesecake and s'more sundae are a great way to end a good meal. It was a wonderful dining experience and well worth the money.
