I ordered the ribeye steak. It was really good. The menu says the products are organic and maybe that made the difference. Also the mini donut dessert was quite good. And it's in a nice spot.

After our dinner we noticed that each one of us had "licked the platter clean". The pasta with salmon was excellent as a main course. The lemon souffle was delicious. This restaurant is worth a visit!

We visited The Lodge for a drink and a few shared plates prior to our dinner at home. It was absolutely delicious! The service with Alyssa as our waitress was super. It's so nice going to a restaurant so close to home.

False advertising. Claims free drink during snow days, but snows a foot after midnight, and claims the free drink happens only if snowing during sunlight. I'll never believe their marketing again.

Had fantastic food. We went every day while visiting the area...dinner, Sunday brunch, drinks. Martha, our waitress, was so friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The chef creates special, delicious dishes. You cannot miss by going here.
