The service was very good. Food was excellent. There are plenty of seats with a view of the Echo Lake. Plenty of parking spaces. Average cost of the meal was $15.00. I recommend this restaurant.

We were on the scenic bypass trip, did a lot of hiking, stopped here on the way down to get some dessert. Everybody recommended the pies, they were to die for! Big enough piece to share with two people, the peanut butter chocolate was outstanding....More

Great location, beautiful views and watch the humming birds while you wait for food. Great old lodge that has not wasted one square inch to stack up do- dads to sell to tourists. Food service was slow especially after we ordered. Once the food arrived...More
