Ate lunch outside at the lodge and was advised to eat dinner there as well. Had the meatloaf....yes....meatloaf!! The flavor was so good that there was no salt needed!!

I ordered the pot roast--it was the best I have ever eaten!! My husband ordered lamb and couldn't stop talking about how good it is. This restaurant is exceptional!

Food is terrific, and the Wine List is beyond compare. There is an entree for every palate, terrific service, and a congenial bar.

The food was very good but the appetizer (crab dip) took a very long time to come out at dinner. Service in general was very slow. We waited quite a while for our server to even greet us at lunch despite there being only one other table seated.

Hi jguard85, We really appreciate you leaving feedback! While we are a slower-paced establishment, both of specifics you mentioned are against our standards. We'll be sure to share this info with our management team. Hope to see you back again! Jan More

Food preparation was excellent but the timing of the service was off somewhat. We had not finished our delicious appetizers before the entrees arrived - the first two nights we dined here. On the third night - we did not order our entrees until the appetizer arrived. The food preparation was excellent.

Seven family members dined here last evening and it was very impressive. We were seated in the loft and to ourselves which made it even more comfortable, memorable time. The service was incredible!

We own a restaurant and my husband LOVED his filet...he had it two nights in a row. All of the food was fresh, innovative, and really plentiful. I need to go on a diet now!

Exemplary lodgings, both cabins and yurts, in middle of peaceful mountain woods. Loved the morning basket of breakfast goodies as well as all the niceties provided in the lodgings. If you've never slept in a yurt, give it a try - it's nothing like any camping you've done before! Best of all, the restaurant in the lodge is wonderful. Excellent... More
