“The Peninsulas Best”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

We always look forward to our twice yearly visit to the Quinault Rainforest, Quinault Lodge...and The Salmon House. As much as we love to Lodge, the Salmon House is what we REALLY look forward to. The service, the view...and OMG, the food. The ONLY thing we would have to "complain" about is, they aren't open for breakfast and lunch! Go there, you won't be disappointed.

“Dated, but good food and a million dollar view”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This place is a time warp, a salad bar and booths in the lounge. It was just what we were looking for, the view of the lake is stunning and the food was great.

“The Smoked Salmon is Phenomenal!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

The portions are large so keep that in mind when ordering. We had the smoked salmon appetizer (with crackers, capers, onions and cream cheese) on the waitperson's recommendation and it was by far the best I have ever had. We Also ordered the dinner for two that had fish, scallops and prawns and it was good, but we were full and had to leave the rest.

“Good place for a bite!”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

We stayed right over the road for a few days and had to try out the food here. We tried the salmon and it was good enough, nothing really amazing though. But the service we got was amazing, waitress for the evening was all smiles and happy to help. Maybe a bit too expensive food for the taste. Amazing view from our table by the window, towards the lake.

“Great food, great location”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

We visited this restaurant whilst staying at the nearby Quinault Lodge Hotel. Admittedly this wasn't exactly high season and the restaurant therefore wasn't full, but we were impressed with the quality of service, attention to customers, and the quality of the food - the salmon in particular was amongst the best I have ever eaten - well done. Try to get a window seat if you can and you'll not only be able to enjoy the view of the picturesq lake, but also, once the feeders are up, be entertained by the hummingbirds. If ever I am in this area again I am pretty sure I'll be back to sample the menu again - this is food not to be missed.
