Good was good. A Little pricy. Our server Fred from France was very nice but over worked.... they seemed short staffed and Fred was working super hard. Great views.

Nice atmosphere, even with renovation in progress. Nice menu selections and the food was good. We had ribs and trout, both were fine. The wines are a bit pricey for what you get, but it was a vacation! Excellent service

The service was excellent and the food was OK, about what you expect from concessionaire food. My husband has the turkey and the quantity was impressive, the flavor less so. The pasta was great, though.

We had dinner here on a recent trip. One of us had a quesadilla, and one had the pot roast. Both were acceptable, though the pot roast was too dry. The service was competent. It is not a bad place to eat, though neither is...More

We are checking into the lodge next weekend and will have a 4-year old celebrating his birthday. Does the lodge offer anything (a cupcake with a candle will do) to highlight this boy's birthday?
