Ambiance was great-nicely appointed dining area with pastoral and mountain views. Our dinners were delicious and desert scrumptious-service was terrific as well!

My husband and I had a New Year's eve dinner there. Lobster bisque was terrific. Our steaks were done to perfection and very tender. Service was friendly and efficient.

Christmas evening menu, waitress was unimpressive and didn’t want to be working and our waits were excessive.

We enjoyed Christmas dinner at the ranch this year. It was our first time dining there. The meal was outstanding with excellent service. We had a window table overlooking the lake and enjoyed a beautiful view of the mountains (when the clouds allowed). Saw a family of otters pop out of the water onto the frozen ice. And did some people watching as they were walking around on the trails. A huge firepit was lit outside the lodge and we enjoyed the view and fresh air by the fire for a few minutes before heading home.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at the Lodge restaurant. The setting is great. The service was good. I ordered the pork loin entre. When it first came it was hardly above room temp. While waiting for my order again my companion almost finished his meal - the turkey dinner which he said was good although it was warm but not hot. When my order came it was a new order which was nice rather than just microwaving the first order. This time it was warm although not hot. The vegetables were good but the pork loin was not. It was tough, over cooked, and dry. The fig stuffing in it was the only part that was edible and it was good.

I took the meat home, only had two small bites there, as it was far too expensive to not try to get something out of it. After slicing it thin and doctoring it up with quite a lot of others things I was able to at least eat it.

All in all a major disappointment. I've been there before with friends for drinks and it was great but if this is their usual standard for dinner I would never recommend it for a meal.

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!

We love dining at the Black Butte Lodge Restaurant and try to go several times a year. The food, service and view are not excelled anywhere else.

We visit The Lodge nearly annually, and it never fails to leave us smiling. Michael is the best!

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.

Our steaks were not done as requested. Mine was unfortunately fatty and gristly and not particularly good. Staff was good and the ambience is outstanding

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.

I took my 10 year old granddaughter for dinner at the Lodge for the last night of her stay at our home at Black Butte Ranch. We had a wonderful dinner. She had an adult dinner and loved it.

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.

Our server, Ethan was friendly, helpful and attentive. Cinnamon roll was perfect! Omelette was small for the price and didn't have chorizo in it.
