Description: In the fall of 1937, President Franklin D. Roosevelt visited Lake Quinault Lodge during a fact-finding trip and enjoyed lunch in the later-named Roosevelt Dining Room. Nine months later, Roosevelt signed a bill creating Olympic National Park. Today you'll enjoy outstanding cuisine in the Roosevelt Dining Room, one of our famous Olympic Peninsula Restaurants, as well as panoramic views of the Lake and the mountains beyond.

“Heavenly pancakes!”
Reviewed July 6, 2014

The views of the lawn and lake are amazing. The food was good, but not amazing. We loved the breakfasts: killer pancakes, both sweet potato and regular, that we ordered with pecans or blueberries (excellent!). The breakfast yogurt parfait is delicious and too much for one person to finish. The salmon was good, but not as good as at other Washington restaurants during this time of year. The short ribs, however, were very tasty. Service was rushed at one meal, but not at the other three we ate here. Prices are on the high side.

“Dinner with a View”
Reviewed July 3, 2014

How fortunate to have such a delightful dining room just a stroll away from your lodging. We enjoyed dinner and breakfast in the Roosevelt room during our one night's stay and felt the total experience was relaxing, pleasant, and worth a return visit.

“Delightful surprises!”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We had both dinner and breakfast at the Roosevelt Room at Lake Quinault Lodge. Our vegetarian dinners, pasta and risotto, were superb. For breakfast we had delicious fruit, cereal, bread and coffee. We had planned on eating away from the lodge at least once, but changed our minds and were completely satisfied. Not only was the food excellent, but the service was also impeccable, even with a busy evening dinner crowd. Most highly recommended.

“Food nothing special”
Reviewed June 30, 2014

We had several meals here. The salmon was not nearly as good as Salmon House, so you might just try something else. The service was excellent. the view is nice.

“Food was okay, overpriced”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

Food was nothing to brag about, very overpriced. The view was lovely though. Our server seemed to try to hurry us through the meal.
