Our server, Cyrus, could not have been any better. Great personality and personal attention to detail. We will be returning as often as possible.

I brought family from out of town here and everything was great! Almost every table was full but because the rooms are separated it was quiet and never felt busy. All the food was great. More unique than a regular steakhouse but has things that everyone will enjoy. Service was wonderful. Food came quick. No complaints about anything!

Thanksgiving day at Rainbow Lodge was perfect. It was a difficult day unable to gather as we normally would. I had never been to Rainbow Lodge but have always wanted to try it. The setting is beautiful and the food was outstanding. Highly recommend!

The food and waitstaff just did an outstanding job on the outdoor service for Thanksgiving day. Desserts were also exceptional (bread pudding appears to have been made from crossaints).

Made reservations for outdoor dining. Was unable to have a table on lower level.( 1st disappointment).
Duck Gumbo served barely warm.
Halibut not prepared well. (Undercooked...)
Ambiance of restaurant/outdoor space is AMAZING.
Service was excellent.
