Cascade Room - Skamania Lodge
Since it was Valentines Day we made a trip to the restaurant after checking in around 4 pm. The staff there were wonderful and said they could save two cuts of prime rib (the special that night) since our reservations were not until 8 pm and they would most likely be sold out.
But when we arrived my cut of prime rib had to have been something they were going to trash because it was very small and full of gristle and large amounts of fat. Way more than you normally find on any prime rib. The actual eatable portion of meat was probably 2-3 Ounces. For $40!!!
So we paid $40 for some mashed potatoes that were barely warm and a few spears of asparagus again which were just warm. My husbands prime rib was very small also but he had a larger eatable portion at least.
I will be contacting the hotel. This was absolutely unacceptable and should NEVER have come out of that kitchen. If they forgot to save two nice cuts then tell us so we could make another choice. Don’t just try to foist it on someone and hope they won’t care. Really???
This was a Valentines Day fabulous date! Service from Michael, food, ambience over the top. Made our evening special!
Service by Mike was wonderful and we really enjoyed him. My wife and I both ordered prime rib. My wife had to send hers back as it was too chewy to cut with a knife. Everything else was pretty good.
We'll try another dish if we go back.
Overpriced and food that is non-creative and not very tasty. I will not be returning.
The waiter was outstanding - I was disappointed in some of the food selections - I was hoping for eggs benedict - but it was good
The food is absolutely INCREDIBLE!! Ambiance is wonderful if you’re there for sunset or have a full moon like we did. Service was okay.
Our waitress Joleane was outstanding! She made our experience wonderful!
Amazing food with wonderful and friendly staff. The views all over the lodge are amazing
The room was very cold with a draft that made some of the members of our party wear their coats and hats the entire time we were in the dining room.
The food was acceptable, but the price was excessive for the items we ordered.
Service was good.
Always such a good experience and Skamania Lodge! We opted for the Sunday Champagne Brunch, which includes unlimited mimosas. Definitely worth the $45 a person every once in awhile!
Meh- food is always good but they need to bring the Bloody Mary bar back if they are going to charge $45.
Our server Mary Sue was and is always fantastic, enjoyed our dinner although it was a little pricey!
Excellent food and service. It's such a beautiful place to stay, the food being so wonderful made out stay that much better
Service is amazing, pampered and cared for. The only thing we ran into in the bar restaurant was the portion size for the caesar salad was very small for the $14 price and the woodfired pepperoni and sausage pizza left a lot to be desired, my husband compared it to a low grade frozen pizza- sausage also tasted more like breakfast sausage than italian sausage.
All the other food we had throughout the weekend was great.
Our server Mike was amazing! Food wasn’t so great.
Excellent restaurant. Have never had a bad meal there
Very nice meal. Great service and the ambiance is fantastic.
Very limited menu. Very expensive for value received. Too many high end chef concoctions to go with entree, such as polenta, and odd vegetables. No option for a baked potato or green beans etc. Will not return or recommend.
We took a drive up from Vancouver to the Lodge for breakfast as a change of pace. We started with fresh orange juice and great coffee. My husband ordered the corn beef hash with poached eggs on top and I had the Belgium waffle. Everything was fresh and delicious! We were lucky enough to have a window seat, though most tables have a great view. The room presents itself as clean and orderly. All staff we encountered were positive, polite and customer service oriented. Overall it was a great experience and we look forward to returning in the Spring.
The Friday Buffet was honestly very disappointing at the least. Food quality was poor, most of it overcooked and over priced to say the least. We had picked the evening to meet friends for a nice dinner and we felt so bad about the food we bought their dinners. $250.00 for 4 people. We won’t be back there again.
Great as always. Beef up the dessert wine pairings and it will be 100%
Food and service were great. Even Anna, the hostess, was probably the kindest person I’ve ever met!
Pricey but food is top quality and a lovely selection..
It is wonderful for the occasions when you want to treat someone to something special. Waiter was a little odd, not very visible. Overall we have a beautiful holiday lunch, then rocked in the great room for a whole near the roaring fire. Memorable.
My family has been coming to Sunday brunch last five years. Unfortunately our recent trip was disappointing both service and foods. Waitress wasn't that busy but show no interest in engaging basic conversation. Servers were visible but used plate wasn't clear for few minutes
I went to meat table waiting, a server was preparing a meal using a portable burner. he saw me standing but ignored. No one acknowledge me with simple words I be right with you. Alaska crab legs were so salty made me feel like there for decoration.
I don't use Yelp or Facebook I feel the need to speak up. Beautiful place to enjoy the view but overall service and food was less than average.
Great brunch. Everything was superb. My only recommendation would be to provide some more kids friendly choices.
As usual the food was excellent and the service was prompt and friendly.
We loved this brunch! A little spendy for child diners, though. Kids just don’t generally eat that much.
It was an anniversary celebration with son’s family. The food was excellent and the service was exceptional.
Thanksgiving Friday. Had the Prime Rib special. Not very good. Chewy and looked like it was warmed up from the Buffet on Wednesday night. We had had wonderful meals at Cascade the previous days, but this was meal was disappointing.
Wonderful food! Very high price, but great food. Wonder waiter.
Brunch isnt worth $45/person. The quality of the food has slipped since my last visit. Nice building and grounds but I wont be coming back for the overpriced brunch.
Food is INCREDIBLE, service was excellent and would recommend to everyone!
Please have the cheese blintzes every Sunday. We have missed them for the past few years and I thought they were off the menu till I saw them online. We asked the waiter and he said you only do then every other sunday. That’s silly. Please put them back as a standard menu item. It’s a long drive for us and we’ve missed them many times and been very disappointed.
It's an expensive Sunday brunch, but worth every penny. Everything was wonderful, and the staff are courteous and helpful. We took dear friends visiting from afar and they loved it too. Also, it would be hard to beat the view!
Great selection, great flavors, loved that they had seafood. A bit slow with service at 9am but they got in stride.
The high Food prices do not meet the poor service quality
Biscuits and Gravy were inedible, swimming in butter, never got water refilled and took 30 minutes to pay.
Fair.....expensive...more choices needed
