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!
Great as always. Excellent food. Beautiful setting. Warm and attentive service.
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.
