    The food was like licking a salt lick. I mean everthing was over salted to the point of not being edible. I wanted to like this place as we went there for my birthday but we just couldn't. I even filled out a very detailed comment card before we left which was never responded too. From what I have read this place is very polorizing, you either like it or hate it. My family still jokes about how bad this place was.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 8/30/2011
    The ribs are great, the cole slaw over dressed and needs some more flavor. The rosemary fries are exceptional. The biggest issue I had was the noise volume. Too loud, poor acoustics. And this added to the next issue. We were a group of 6 and they sat us at a table for "large groups" which was so big (with seating all on one side and the ends) with the spacing so stretched out we could barely have a conversation. Not a good social setting at all. They need to get more seating for 6 that is a normal table.

    The Lodge was the attraction to us; it is a beautiful building with a comfy "period" interior. Cocktails were tasty (Two call bourbons for $27) and seemingly expensive. The shrimp cocktail was really good and the entree's were very good... Overall, we loved the place, but the prices seem a little steep. We would return, but for lunch or snacks...

I ordered the chicken fried steak, first time in decades, with delicious results, (and fuel enough for the rest of the weekend). Others went with steak n eggs and eggs benidict of the many varieties.

    Fantastic find for a relaxed atmosphere and top-notch cuisine. Steaks were cooked to perfection (Delmonico, Baseball-cut Top Sirloin & American Wagyu Oscar). Very nice wine list, plus several local microbrews on tap. Comfortable, relaxed environment in fascinating historic building. Experience was so good that we followed up with brunch the next morning. Amazing selection of Benedicts (6) at very reasonable prices. Generous portions and "Base-Camp" breakfast potatoes. The Woodman will become a regular haunt.

    We felt the menu was over-priced for the quality of the food, service, and venue and commented that for what we spent, we could have eaten dinner at any one of the exceptional restaurants available in the Seattle area. We're glad that we tried it, but my husband and I agreed that we will could have enjoyed a better meal for the price somewhere else and will not be returning. If the price was more in line with the quality and service, we would eat there again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007
    Dined on 7/30/2011
    We had very good prime rib and side dishes. The Osso Bucco on risotto was good, if rich. It seems to be a good place for steaks and smokey grilled stuff in general. However, it is a little expensive for the area and for the rustic informal ambiance. I expected it to be nicer inside. The 1890s-style pioneer bar decor is appropriate for the old Snoqualmie town, but the high ceilings and mostly booth and bench seating make it noisy and bar-like. This may not the best place for an quiet dinner with your date, but good for a night out with friends and hearty meat dishes.

    First visit to the Woodman Lodge. Our table was ready at our reserved time. Our server was friendly and efficient. Our wine selection was not available, so our server suggested another and provided it at the same price. A spinach salad was forgotten, but was promptly brought out and we were not charged for it. We had prime rib and elk medallions and both were very good. We will return for another visit.

    Very rustic interior to a historic building. The food was fantastic. Prices fair for the quality. Our server was very hands-off and didn't converse or was around any more than minimally neccissary, though another (manager?) stopped by to help with a slow side-order and ended up giving it to us for free due to the tardyness. Good experience overall.

    Going to the Woodman Lodge was like stepping back in time. The ambiance was great from the authentic gas lanterns on the wall to the saloon style piano player. The food was excellent as well. It was a great place to take our out of town guests to get a feel for the old West. The food prices were quite high, though, so we'll have to save this place for special occasions only.

Literally, hands down the best food I have ever eaten. I had the filet mignon with dungeneas crab and asparagus. The steak was perfect, the crab was fresh and the asparagus perfectly seasoned and cooked. We then had te apple pie for dessert with was freshly made miniature personal pie, absolutely delicious. Well worth the money you will spend, can't wait to go back!

    Upon arriving we were told that we could be seated at one of the empty booths, but suddenly one of the hostesses whispered to the other that she should seat us upstairs at a table. This made for a noisy environment, but I decided to let it go. I ordered a couple of appetizers: Artichoke Dip and Filet Mignon Tips Au Poivre. My first bite into one of the Filet Mignon Tips was to find it was fat and gristle... The rest of the appetizer wasn’t much better. The Artichoke and dip that the waitress had suggested was nothing special. I ordered the Prime Rib for my entree, which turned out to be the biggest disappointment of all. The 18 ounce prime rib was 15 ounces of fat! There was no need to consider desert at that point…

    The Woodman Lodge is the yellow building behind the train station in Snoqualmie. Hidden inside is a great restaurant with some delicious food. The slow-roasted prime rib is amazing but make sure that you visit when it's available (currently Friday, Saturday and Sunday after 4pm). Their rosemary fries are also delicious. The bar with stools made out of logs and a working spittoon is novel but not very comfortable - it's probably okay for quick drinks but you'll want a table for brunch or dinner.

    We had received a few emails regarding the Woodman Lodge and were eager to try it. In the emails it looked rustic but elegant. When we arrived for Mother's Day brunch it was excessively loud and looked very worn inside, not the elegant place we hoped to take my parents for brunch. What saved the experience a little bit was the waiter was the perfect balance of attentive but not overbearing. We mainly had breakfast food which was good, but didn't stand out in any way other than the cinnamon rolls were exceptional! We might give it another shot some evening when not so many families are present.

    I've eaten at the Woodman several times, but this was my first time visiting the Woodman for brunch. We dined there on Easter, and I was disappointed when our waitress came to the table and told us they were out of waffles and cinnamon rolls - basically the only non-egg items on their brunch menu. We had 2 young kids with us, so it was a bit frustrating to me. The food we did order (Eggs Benedict) was very good, but the service was not.

    We made reservations well in advance, arrived 10 minutes early, and were seated 10 minutes late. Another couple arrived several minutes after and were seated first. We were given a table right by the door between the noisy bar and piano. As people came and went, few thought to close the door behind themselves and my wife had to get up more than once to close it due to the cold air. Someone from another table had to do this too. The staff wasn't on top of it, and if it's a problem, then fix the door. The food was really expensive to the point of being overpriced, which was surprising given the menus were paper placemats and people were dressed in blue jeans and T-shirts. The mashed potatoes tasted like instant. Not a romantic evening.
