    Upon checking in the hostess told me you’re here for an anniversary dinner that was forgotten or not passed on to the waiter, The views were outstanding, but that’s about all the Halibut overcooked appetizer portion not seasoned at all and salad drenched in dressing. Since the waiter never acknowledge our anniversary, we just got the bill paid it and left. DONT waste your money just for the views they are way better restaurants at the Lodge by far.

    Food, ambience, and waiter were all very good. Kitchen was exceptionally slow. Both in terms of drinks in the cocktail lounge prior to dinner and then in terms of delivering entrees

    The ambiance was beautiful. The views were stunning - truly remarkable. The food was very expensive but very good. The service was not great. As my husband stated, if we’re spending this much money, the service should be top notch but unfortunately it was not even close. The food was fantastic!

    Place trades on location and attentive staff. Stayed at Hotel, which I may not do again, but I would always come back for sunset dinner. Only Post Ranch Inn or Nephete offer similar setting
