What a spectacular meal AND overall dining experience last evening. The principal of ‘today’s Lake Creek Lodge dining was then unbeknownst to him up for a critical test in that our guests were still bemoaning ( as were we) the loss some 15+ years ago of the then truly famed Kokanee Cafe then also of Camp Sherman OR and then deservingly one of the finest fine dining in Central Oregon. The GREAT NEWS is that by the end of just a wonderful evening of fine dining including truly the BEST lamb osso buco I have found + baked Idaho trout + tender and perfectly done for sharing filet + Walla Walla K-Syrah, our guests celebrating their 44th anniversary concluded the NOW Lake Creek Lodge dining is like their (+ our! !!) beloved Kokanee Cafe reconstituted but now well beyond !! We independently agree that the Lake Creek Lodge fine dining NOW meets and quite possibly beats any other fine dining offering at least in Central Oregon and would freely encourage all to see for themselves. The informality of the setting is really just an added benefit.

We had such a delicious and delightful experience here before a play that we and our friends decided to come back the next night. We shared all of the appetizers and all were beautiful, flavor-full and delightful in particular the scallops with white chocolate-pesto sauces and the pork belly with apples and croutes were spectacular. The shortribs entree was also memorable. Service was friendly, prompt and professional, the speakeasy ambiance was fun. We will be back again next time we are in the area!

Amazing experience. Service: 5/5, Food 5/5, Presentation 5/5, Ambiance 5/5, Drinks 5/5, Price/value 3/5 - pretty expensive. But, we had 4 people and ordered 4 “appetizers”, which were a little small (but amazing), 2 main dishes (salmon and the steak), 4 deserts, brought our own bottle of wine (corkage $40), 2 cocktails, 2 mocktails. Although it was a bit pricey, we left full and satisfied. Whole experience was absolutely worth it. Highly recommend going!
