We live at BBR and have always loved The Lodge. It never fails to deliver excellent food, service, ambiance, and value. Tried and true! Even our boys (ages 7 and 10) love it there! Michael is the best waiter - and raises his own chickens!

Excellent menu. The food was amazing! Great flavor on each of our dishes. High end dining at just above average prices. Worth the price! The help is very friendly and not at all stuffy! I have never been disappointed here. The flavors and combinations they put together are five star!

Booked through open table and requested a view, as it was our anniversary. We got the most beautiful table in the room, and Michael! Our waiter. He is perfection in a server. Charm, timing, follow-up, everything. It was a perfect evening out. The views from the lodge restaurant are spectacular. This is a great place for a romantic dinner or a nice family dinner.

Average at best. Service was ok - slow to bring drinks throughout. Ribeye special had too much going on with it. Steak was undercooked and a little cold. Appetizer was very good.

The setting is spectacular. The wine list is very good especially for niche Oregan wines. The food is acceptable if you are up to the prices, but guests shouldn't come here looking for a bargain. This is as close as you get to fine dining in Central Oregon.
Our server, Michael, was terrific; he made the meal.

Michael is hands-down the best server in the world. He is friendly, funny, welcoming and a true professional in every way. Watching him with other tables one can see that he has a gift of making people feel like part of his family without being over the top. The food at the restaurant is always top notch, and the surroundings are breathtaking.

Often restaurants affiliated with resorts phone in the food and service, relying on the view and a captive clientele. The BBR Dining Room goes beyond meeting the ordinary expectations of those staying at the Ranch with creative, often locally-sourced dishes that are highly satisfying to diners with more rarified tastes. The Dining Room's competition is regional, extending into Bend and Redmond, and to many vacationing nearby. If these diners are going to make the drive to the Ranch, they'll do so for an experience, not just a meal. They won't go away disappointed.

My wife and I celebrated Mothers’ Day with a special dinner featured at the Black Butte Lodge Restaurant. Everything was superb. The menu was exceptional- a very interesting set of options that were executed flawlessly. The presentation was unusually good.
This was a special menu which is not what they usually serve. However, it demonstrated the capabilities of the chef. We hope they will do it again.
Service was outstanding.

The meal was excellent and the ambiance is the best!

We had heard wonderful things about this place but were very disappointed. When we first walked in we were not sure where the restaurant was located. A young man came around the corner and asked us what we wanted. He seemed upset and distracted throughout the evening. The restaurant looked nice with low lights and candlelight however filled up quickly and became very noisy and busy. Our waiter was informative and did a good job, however it took an hour for us to get our dinner and then it wasn't that good.

We were three couples who rented a house over the New Years weekend. We made a reservation to enjoy the Lodge and have a wonderful meal, drink and bring in the New Year. The hospitality was very welcoming and our server was absolutely spot on. I'm sorry I can't remember his name but he was from El Paso, TX and made our dining experience one to remember!

We very much enjoyed the view, food, service, and ambiance. Many of the categories above were left unchecked as I simply did not have experience with them (i.e. I don't drink alcohol, but I'm sure you have a lovely wine list). We live in Sisters and just recently 'discovered' the Lodge. You can be sure that we will return quite often. Thank you for a lovely experience.

I have dined here at least a half dozen times and for the most part, enjoyed the experience. Not the case this time. In the past, the service has always been friendly, fast and very professional. When our server introduced herself, she was pleasant but not very enthusiastic. The first clue that things were not as they used to be came when our server told us about the one special of the evening. It was an appetizer?! Sorry, I've never been to a higher end restaurant before where the only special was an appetizer. Dates, wrapped in bacon and fried, no. We ordered drinks. Our server kept returning and announcing that our drinks were on the way. 25 mins. later they arrived. I should mention here that the restaurant was not very busy. Less than half of the table were occupied. My date ordered the Oregon rock fish and I the rib eye. The rock fish was excellent. I had asked that the steak be prepared medium. It was slightly less than rare. The cut was horrible. A tremendous amount of fat and sinew made more than half the steak impossible to eat. All this for $34. It will be a long time before we return, if ever.

Very overpriced. The food was bland and fairly flavorless. I was very sad we spent so much for a very disappointing meal. I should have realized when the dining room wasn't full on Saturday of Labor Day weekend that it wasn't worth it.
You come for the view and the friendly service. Entrees in the mid $30s should be outstanding and they definitely weren't. Even the bread was ho hum. The peach cobbler was downright awful with no seasonings and no topping. Meh to say the least.

Wife's food was not cooked correctly (ordered medium rare, was raw and mostly still cool/cold). Reheat in obviously their microwave, only took 3 or 4 minutes, instead of continuing to grill was marginally not much better). My dish, elk, was cool when delivered (not even warm). For this caliber of restaurant, I expected both dishes to be removed at the complaint and represented after professionally proper preparation so we could enjoy our meal together. This was her 65th Birthday dinner.
Tastes were as expected

The food was very good, but the ambiance is lacking. It needs an update and there are no good tables for a quiet romantic meal. The view is breathtaking, but they have screens to help block the sun, so you can't see out well. Waiter was very attentive and the food was very good.
