    The dining room filled up quickly, almost to fast for the servers. It appeared our table service slowed down due to insufficient help. The smoked duck appitizer was good, as was the stuffed chicken breast. However, the daily special halibut was well presented, but it wasn’t hot. As a matter of fact, it probably sat there waiting for the server to pick it up.

    We stopped by for lunch. The food, service, view from the restaurant, ambiance, everything was really great. I had a glass of wine but my husband had a beer from a local brewery called Uncle Leo’s, which was also great. The restaurant is a part of the hotel and a little far from the center of the town but it’s worth the visit. One of the best meals during our vacation.

    One thing I wished we knew before arriving at the lodge was when you book rooms, also look at reserving breakfast, lunch and or dinner plans at the same time. We had a later then normal eating time for 1 of our reservation. Staff awesome, enjoy your stay!

    Lovely place have been before. Since it was our anniversary we decided to treat ourselves to the special Wagu steak. I am not One to complain at the restaurant I don’t like being one of those customers. First we both ordered rare, and was cooked perfectly but the steak was hardly warm and it was a sirloin cut but very chewy, lots of connective tissues in both steaks. Had hoped for an amazing steak with the price difference. Had hoped the experience treating ourselves to a steak just one time Biscuits and salad were great, and our server was wonderful.

    Food was generally very good, except for my mussels, which were either old, overcooked or both. This also happened on a previous visit, but I though I would give them another try. One of our guests said the chowder was excellent and the fish and chips was the BEST he had ever had. Two of us had the chicken which was very good. The server tried her best, but clearly has had no training regarding wine service. She did not ask if anyone wished to taste the wine and when we opened a second bottle of white - different from the first - she was going to add it to the existing glasses that still contained the first bottle. She seemed surprised when I suggested that she should bring fresh glasses for the second wine. She was very pleasant and tried her best, but had no idea what she was doing. Not her fault.

    Great service. Food quality very uneven. Mussels slightly overcooked and underseasoned. The veggie burger was excellent, while the baby back ribs were underwhelming. They were bland, though tender. Caesar salad seemed to have a bottled dressing. Deep fried apple pie desert was excellent. My meal 3/5. My partners 4/5. Pub food in a nice ambience

    Guests at the Lodge. Service prompt although obviously short staffed. Appetizers very good, main meal the fish was overdone (actually sent mine back) and the two steak servings were both overdone. The two desserts ordered were delicious. Wonder if perhaps the shortage of staff had something to do with the food sitting too long and thus being not as ordered. Overall good experience, fantastic setting and we have booked for next year. This is a family gathering.
