The Alderbrook Inn, a favorite resort for Corporate retreats, is a beauty on the Hood Canal with majestic views of the Olympic mountain range. Power and sail boaters can pull in and have a great meal and stay at a first class resort with three floors of lodging and a world-class restaurant. The happy hours each day from 3 to 6 pm offer generous discounts on food and drink in the bar area which is very large. Service cannot be beat by the local servers. This place is a good drive from Tacoma/Seattle and so is a destination place. We were staying in a resort one half mile away that does not have a restaurant so the Alderbrook was a wonderful place for meals when we didn't feel like cooking at our condo. We will be back.
The service was outstanding!! Our server Michelle was the best. I wished there were some vegan opinions just vegetarian ones. We had an amazing time here. I totally recommend.
We were at the Alderbrook for Christmas Day Brunch. The buffet food was lukewarm, at best. I expected better since we were there first thing in the morning and for the price ($49/per). Not worth the price we paid. Very disappointed.
Some items were really good and others weren’t. Our server was nice but didn’t check in to make sure everything was ok, which it wasn’t, and our bill was not credited to compensate. I was also disappointed in the menu selection.
This is one of our top five restaurants anywhere and we travel a lot. We come here every Thursday for appetizers, The best anywhere especially if you like sea food. The view is the best, you look out over the Olympic Mountains majestic in the summer, snow caped in the winter. You just can not find another place like it.
Like everyone (I'm sure) we requested a window table when we made our 6.30pm reservation. Upon arrival our hostess informed us that there were other reservations arriving shortly, so she was unable to give us a window table (fair enough). Instead, we sat on the upper level overlooking the window tables, where I got to be quite chummy with a potted plant that kept tickling my head during dinner, and where my date and I could easily see that during our entire dinner there were never less than TWO free window tables, including one table that stayed open the entire time. Other than that, our food was decent (especially the pumpkin bisque), and our wait staff were quite attentive and friendly.
The staff was beyond outstanding and the setting is wonderful. The menu however is getting stale. It would be nice to see some new items to select from. All four of us had the open face crab sandwich, which we found disappointing. Rather than pieces of crab, it was more like tuna salad. The desert, an apple and pear tart with pomegranate seeds, was delicious and pleasing to the palate. Overall, we had a wonderful day of ambiance and fellowship.
Went for our anniversary everyone was wonderful and very welcoming , food was great and fast service and great rooms and hot tub
Was looking forward to a great Brunch. Did not get what was expected. All three meals were cooked incorrectly and one was cooked incorrectly twice. This is a really high priced restaurant and for the money you would expect your food to be correct. 2 out of 3 meals were sent back to the kitchen. 1 Out of 3 was sent back twice. As a retired executive chef, I feel the food is marginal and over priced. The menu is too pretentious for this venue
Food and service is always excellent! Beautifully decorated for Christmas.
