    The Lodge offers reasonable selection of different choices. While the price is as high as expected for a specialty steak house, the service is superb and friendly with Snowqualie charm. The different cuts we ordered were all delicious. I would never thought I would finish the 20 oz cowboy cut Nebraska ribeye and felt like having more! Wine selection is also great. Conclusion: Will come back soon.

    We decided at the last minute to come to the Woodman Lodge for dinner. It was not our first time there so we knew what to expect. We were welcomed at the door and our table was ready for the six of us. We had the artichoke appetizer and that is my very favourite thing on the entire menu. Don't miss it! Our waiter, Alex, was fantastic. He entertained us the whole time we were there. Our main courses were great - Chicken and ribs, prime rib, sea scallops, clams, bison burger & pork chop. We all enjoyed our meals and then had some dessert. The hot fudge sundae is huge! The best part of the whole restaurant is the atmosphere. It's in a beautiful, historic building and it's gorgeous inside and out. We look forward to coming back soon!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010VIP
    Dined on 8/9/2014
    If you're in the mood for meat, this is the place. The prime rib is consistently perfect. We have been here a number of times, always thrilled when the food is presented because it's always cooked the way we order it, medium rare. The baked potato is so good, all four of us just order the identical thing.

    I loved the wild boar and garlic mashed potatoes! A fantastic meal. My wife had the steak Oscar and she said it was okay. She was not overly impressed with her steak. The atmosphere was great! The staff was friendly and attentive. We had the berry crumble for dessert which was excellent. This is a place not to miss when in Snoqualmie.

    The last time we ate here, everything was great. This time, not everyone's food choices were. Mine was great - I had the prime rib. And if you want a lot of food, you will get it here. Three out of four of us left with left-overs. The service was a little stressed. The rustic charm of the place was lost on those who did not appreciate the view of all the animal heads on the wall while eating. We like it and will continue to go there as a special occassion.

    From the very first moment entering the restaurant, the staff was friendly and wonderful. The service was fast and pleasant, but not rushed. The menu had many mouth watering options. I would highly recommend whatever you order to add their special recipe baked beans. They are quite possibly the best in the world! The desserts are heavenly (the gigantic hot fudge sundae was meant to share!) and the steak was cooked to perfection. The atmosphere was wonderful. The lighting is slightly dimmed to give a special feel to a nice dinner date. The manager stopped by to ensure everything was exceptional and to let us know there was a great photo opp upstairs which we took full advantage of on our way out. We had an amazing time and will return soon!

    Great place for dinner in Snoqualmie. Interesting history for the building, and the conversion to restaurant is top notch. Love the brass bear claw holding the arm rests at the bar. Our steaks were cooked to perfection, with generous portions. Waitstaff were friendly and witty. Too bad we didn't have room for dessert!

    Woodman Lodge is our favorite place for dinner. We hadn't been out for a while, and I was a little worried by recent reviews. Not to worry, it was great as always. Our server was Camille, who was very friendly and gave us just the perfect amount of attention. When she was busy, other staff cleared plates, brought water, and our meals. A very nice gentleman, who we think may be the owner, even stopped by twice to check on us. The prime rib was cooked to perfection. In the past, the noise level and music has sometimes been higher than we'd like, but it wasn't on this visit. We'll be back again!

    Dined on 6/20/2014
    We made reservations here on a Friday night at 6:15pm. We were seated up stairs, which is like a large boardroom. No ambiance and very loud. If this wasn't enough of a disappointment, they then ushered in a huge bus full of tourists. People were standing all around our table. At one point there were people leaning on our table while they lined up for food. The noise level went from loud to unbearable. Now maybe you would expect this at Denny's, but when you are paying $52 for a steak, you expect a little more courtesy from the management.Not one single person who was sitting in the upper portion of the restaurant during the tour group event will be back. Many were complaining. We didn't even finish our main course before we left. Sad.

    My family and I have ate at the Woodman Lodge numerous times over the past few years. We would rate the food as fair to very good, our last experience we rated the food as fair due to the fact that most of the food was over cooked and almost flavorless. We will return due to the fact that we have had some very good experiences in the past; so, don't be quick to write the Woodman Lodge off, it does deserve another chance.

  • Biggest complaint - the staff
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 6/15/2014
    Overall, this is a neat place -- historical and a unique dining experience. My biggest complaint is with the staff. I was greeted by the host with an off-color joke (implying that I was drunk -- a statement I didn't appreciate in front of my kids on Father's Day. I suffer from MS, so I guess I didn't speak very clearly to him). The waitress was condescending and very unfriendly. And because the food was just so-so, I don't feel the need to go back. It's too bad, because the setting and historic building is really cool. I guess you should try it once and hope for a better reception when you get there. Just my experience...

    The crab cake Eggs Benedict was very good. English muffins were tough and not needed. Their homemade bear claw was very good. However, their biscuits and gravy was over spiced. The Bloody Mary was a meal in itself with shrimp, asparagus, a pickle and olives. The mimosa was yummy.

    Dined on 5/31/2014
    From the outside the yellow wood-sided building is unstriking with the only notable feature being its proximity to the Snoqualmie railroad depot. But as you enter you step back into time into an elegant 1800's saloon and that's when your experience begins. Our visit was for my wife's 50th birthday. The menu is definitely carnivore focused featuring a variety of steak cuts, buffalo and elk. The drinks were strong. Salads were good with the wedge salad being most appealing. The food we ordered was cooked to perfection. Most impressive was the manager who recognized our dinner guests from their visit two weeks earlier. The bottom line is that this is a charming restaurant with very good food.

    It was our first time at the woodmen. We had the ribs and sirloin steak. The ribs were wonderful and price was good. The steak was a good size but came out raw. We did ask for medium rare, thinking that for the price they would know how to cool it. It came out cold and not even cooked enough to bleed. It could have kicked my husband in the teeth it was that raw. But other then that it was good when they cooked it some more. The upstairs reminded me of a wedding hall. The down stairs is nice. The drinks are the best. Noah does know how to make a great drink. I would go back just for them. Over all a good place.

The baked potato was perfect as were the veggies. The green beans were perfectly cooked and the potato was the best we've all had in a long time. We drive out especially for dinner here, it's like a mini vacation, the drive is beautiful!

    The Woodman Lodge was a great place to celebrate Mother's Day. We had a small family gathering and everyone had great time. The deserts were very good. Prime Rib was a big hit! The only negative is the Woodman is on the expensive side so sharing an entre is a great way to make it more affordable.

    Food was great but service was slow. Our waiter failed to check back with us very often and I felt left hanging. This has been my experience at this restaurant before so maybe some customer service training might be in order. On this day, I might guess that our waiter was getting a bit of rest after a busy morning of Mother's Day brunch. I'm giving the benefit of the doubt here but for the price of the meals I'd expect more attention be paid.

    I should have learned my lesson the last time I was here. While this is a beautiful restaurant and I applaud the investment in Snoqualmie, they are still not worth my business. We were here for Mother's Day brunch. The menu was truncated for this occasion. Definitely not a place for kids as the menu is too exotic and they don't offer pancakes, waffles or French toast. We ordered eggs Benedict and got hard boiled eggs. Sent back. My son ordered a burger--burned to a crisp--sent back. My other son ordered a cinnamon roll--extremely dry. We politely voiced our concerned and the eggs and burger were redone. However, no adjustment to bill
