We stayed at the lodge and made an effort to dine at the lounge at least once (reservation made ahead of time), to celebrate my father's 70th birthday. It turned out to be fantastic. Their place is somewhat small (hence requiring reservation) but the experience is nothing short of goodness. From the courteous reminder call earlier that day, to the prompt seating and attentive server, we enjoyed the whole experience. The food is perfect as well, even what I would otherwise consider as a "common" roasted chicken breast tasted very good coming from their kitchen!

There were four of us and we all ordered different dishes so we could have a taste of each others. All four entrees were excellent. Desserts were delicious too!

This little restaurant is simple outstanding. It only accommodates about 24 seats but the food is amazing. The friendly service is excellent and fast, but not rushed. Nice wine selection to accommodate everybody. The Scallops were perfectly cooked and the Fillet Mignon Steak was unbeatable. The knife just sliced through it like butter. The menu is not massive, so the team focus on cooking quality food. Rustic Lounge is a must visit, but I recommend booking in advance.

Excellent dinner cooked just right. Expensive but worth it for a special occasion. The staff were friendly and the food really good. Small and reservations a must! I had the filet and it was wonderful! Really good bread. I would definitely return.

This place is attached to the Cedar Glen Lodge, just off the lobby. As well as the rustic decor, it has a nice menu, excellent service, great food, and is good value.

Try the Seattle sea scallops - sublime.
