We enjoyed a lovely birthday dinner there. The food was wonderful (best dine out meal in many years) and I loved that it was locally sourced. It is a beautiful setting for a nice evening out. Our server was attentive and friendly.

A very pleasant dining experience with attentive staff. Especially appreciated the fact that there was no loud music playing and we could have a conversation without having to shout above it.

The server was excellent. The food took way too long to be served. My breakfast was mediocre at best. I had the waffles with a side of bacon, both were not hot when served. Food presentation was interesting, someone in the kitchen was trying to make the food look much better than it tasted. Likte I said our server was excellent, offered lots of hot coffee, and water was brought as soon as we sat down.
The buffets have been so good, we miss that aspect of the Sunday brunch .

The best part of the meal was the seafood chowder, hot and great tasting. Main course tasted good, the temperature of the food was warm at best. The service started out good, but then we were left to feel we had been forgotten. It took a long time for the main course to be served.

The food is excellent. The chef is very accommodating with vegan diners and goes out of his way to satisfy. The server was delightful and very respectful. It is a little pricey but well worth it.

We first came across Jack Sam's restaurant last year when we stayed at the Lodge on 2 different occasions. It was fantastic then and last night it was down right amazing! We took our son there and he said that he thinks this just might be the best restaurant he has ever been to. Everything we ordered was delicious and the presentation was very appealing and impressive. This year we had a basket of warm bannock which I don't recall being an option last year but it is highly addictive. To start we shared the carpaccio and chicken liver terrine, both were fantastic! Our mains were the Coho Salmon and the Bison Sirloin. Everything was cooked to perfection, presentation was on point and the taste of every single thing on our plates was outstanding. You just know that the chef, Christopher Whittaker (because we had to ask his name), cares very much about the quality of food he prepares and serves and the Shuswap is so fortunate to have him here in this beautiful piece of paradise. If I had to make one small recommendation it would be to serve the non-alcoholic JS mule in a tall glass vs a short cocktail glass given the price of $9. Luckily for us, we moved here this year and we will be able to bring many more friends and family members here to experience Chris's culinary talents. :)

The first time I went to this restaurant in February 2021 the service was friendly but very slow. I am glad I gave it another try because this time the service was fast, friendly and efficient. The food and drinks were excellent and the view from the table was spectacular. They are also building a patio that overlooks the lake so I will be back again to check that out and soak in that view! Great restaurant!

We had a fantastic weekend away as a family of four and that included FIVE meals at Jack Sam’s.

In addition to eating our share of bannock, we enjoyed salads and soups and breakfast items and bison and salmon...the only thing we didn’t get to try was dessert!

The servers were friendly and efficient - nailing the balance!

And I was so taken with their genuine excitement to have the dining room back open - we felt like we were part of the celebration. Can’t wait to see the new patio!

First staycation at Quaaout Lodge resort. First impressions were set when we noticed all the beautiful carvings all over entrance ways & doors. We enjoyed the Prime Rib dinner with all the trimmings. Yorkshire Pudding to die for. Decadent desserts. Local wines to pair with any of the great dishes. Breakfast was also exceptional we indulged in The French Toast (Brioche bread) and Eggs Banodict. The Skwlax band has done an excellent job integrating there tastes & infusions in most of their dishes. A must try. I highly recommend it.
