Wooded country back roads will lead you down a narrow road only to open up to a large parking lot in front of the Lodge.
I was treating my son for his birthday and a bonding evening. Since I now live many States away, it was a nice place for the two of us to enjoy a good meal and quiet alone time.
When we arrived on a Saturday night around 5 pm the parking lot was quite crowded., However, I must state that they have a "party room" which looked like it was going to be in use . The décor is one of a Lodge. There is the party room to the left, check in straight ahead and a bar (which was busy) to the right.
We were seated in a room immediately as we did make a reservation. The restaurant gives a small appearance but looking around it appears there are many hidden rooms with tables. We liked it as then each room doesn't feel crowded.
Our waitress (Sarah) was a gem. You could tell she knew what she was doing, (i.e.
I watched her take an order at another table and yet out of the corner of her eye she was overseeing how her other tables were doing.)
We ordered 2 Tequila Sunrise and an appetizer of Portabello Mushrooms stuffed with crab and cheese We both felt the drinks were a bit strong and I personally did not care for the appetizer. I liked the mushrooms but not the stuffing( there was a light zing to it, probably a red pepper was used in stuffing). My son on the other hand thought it was good. I would not order them again, he would. Matter of taste.
We then proceeded to order dinner. He ordered the Asparagus and Ham Soup and Stuffed Salmon. I ordered the Salad with Garlic/Feta cheese dressing.. and the 1/2 duck with orange sherry sauce and a glass of wine.
The soup was creamy but could have used a bit more asparagus tips. Otherwise very good,
The salmon was stuffed with shrimp/crabmeat and topped with a dill sauce. Instead of filleting the fish they actually formed a pocket in the fish and filled it. He would recommend it highly as it was really quite light.
My salad was a typical salad with greens, tomato and a slice of cucumber. The dressing was more of an Italian flavor with minced feta. Good though. The duck was crispy and I especially liked the fact that they served the sherry/orange sauce on the side. Much easier and cleaner to eat. I would also recommend this meal.
There were approx. 6 variety of desserts, some of which were the snickers cheese cake, carrot cake with no nuts, shaum torte, a sugarless type pudding, chocolate cake and hot fudge sundae.
We took home the snickers cheesecake and carrot cake. The carrot cake was ok with too much frosting but the snickers cheesecake was fabulous.
My son did ordered a White Russian Chocolate Mint drink after dinner. Settled his fullness but said this too was a bit too strong.
Would we be returning at any time???? Most assuredly. He can't wait to get back for a special night.
TAKE NOTE: On Friday and Saturday night they have a couple of specials, the Sat. prime rib and 2 for 1 dinners. We weren't even aware of it until our waitress slipped it into her dialog. So if it's your first time, ask about it. Well worth it.
There is also a bar downstairs that opens at 6pm and has music from 60's, 70's, and 80's. Also outside seating,
Don't have any info on this but they also have a Sunday brunch
