We have eaten dinner at the Raccoon Lodge several times. 4 out of 5 times it has been the best food I have ever had and even that missing 5th time is wasn't bad. It was just average. I believe we have been there often enough to determine that one of their cooks is just incredible and the other is simply good enough. The same dish ordered on a different day is going to taste very different, If you have been there and your food was just "good" don't be afraid to order the same thing on another trip because you only experience the average cook. Service is always very good and the beer isn't half bad either.
