Excellent food in the middle of a National Park. Terrific service, and friendly neighbors. Reminded my of good cruise ship dining. Well worth it. Try the medallions of beef!

Whilst this restaurant is probably more expensive that those in Mancos & Cortez, the nearest towns, unless you want to drive 20+ miles this is your only choice. Saying that the food & service was excellent. You could not fault our waiter - he was attentive, friendly & efficient without being pushy. The food was cooked & presented well & a fairly good choice of main & dessert courses.

Fine dining. Delicious food. Our favorite was the Prickly Turkey appetizer. If the lodge is full, you need to be in line before they open at 5:00, since they don't take reservations.

My husband and I had a fantastic dinner. I had the stuffed poblano pepper and he had a chicken dish. Both were gourmet dishes. The service was excellent, food was hot, wine selection good. The only issue is in getting a table at a reasonable hour since they do not take reservations. I recommend that you put your name on the list apx. 45 minutes before your desired dining time.

Fantastic views and even better food. Good wine menu to boot. Plenty of wild game and fish on the menu. Could be located in much better known parks like Yosemite and Yellowstone. Doesn't have the same "lodge" feel of the others, but the food takes a back seat to none.
