Great food and good service. I highly recommend the Poutine appetizer. Great comfort food. The food is delicious and the staff is friendly! I have also been in with my 10 and 12 year old children and they liked it as well!

We eat here whenever we are visiting the area. We get commendable service and the food is very consistent. Pizza is always a good choice. Love their BBQ ranch pizza. Fish Tacos are great and the salads are super.

I brought a dozen friends from all over the world to visit Ponds, enjoy dinners, lunches, drinks and the lodges. We snowmobiled by day and enjoyed the comforts of the Ponds lodges and bar by night. The food was awesome, the service equally as good. I cant say enough about Abbie and Nikki, they were excellent servers every time we...

Let me start this review by explaining why we chose cabin 65. We booked 5 months in advance. We chose a new large cabin because it was listed as newer, backed up to the river, had a hot tub, and a huge fireplace. When we arrived it took forever to find the cabin, they gave us a map but in...

Coming back to a place I stayed when young, I was afraid it would be a letdown. It was not. It is not as rustic as I remember, but rebuilt actually better. Thought I saw one or two of the old, perhaps from 40 years ago. We stayed in the duplex which was cozy, clean, and nice. Might like to...

We stayed in a double queen with a kitchen. The room was spacious and clean. Unlike many vacation rentals, the kitchen was very well equipped with pots and pans and any utensil you might need. We were in Island Park to spend time with friends. The room was large enough and has both a front and back deck. We hosted...

I made a reservation via phone with Ponds Lodge. They took my credit card number and contact information and gave me the cabin number where I would be staying. When I arrived they realized that the cabin was double booked. No computer system, they simply write the information on cards. Instead of honoring me, the first to arrive, they refused...

My wife and I reserved a room for 3 nights while we were visiting Yellowstone National Park. The morning after the first night, we got a call regarding a family member in critical condition and had to rush back to Seattle. Carl wasn't available when we checked out, however we were told that we would be reimbursed for the other...

The whole place has gone under a huge overhaul and no expense was spared, the bar, restaurant, and all the cabins are awesome, we were fortunate enough to have one with a hot tub, we went river rafting during the day, it was a great place to stay!

As a group of five traveling to Yellowstone, our camping accommodations fell through at the last minute due to weather. We scrambled to find a place to stay that very same evening and called several places. Each tried to take advantage of us by claiming we were booking at the last minute and thus needed to pay more. We finally...
