I love this place! It's got character and is so pleasant to dine in. the staff is top notch, the food is wonderful and the atmosphere is wonderful. It's not cheap but this is a great place to go for a special occasion. If you'd like to save a few bucks do Happy Hour in the bar. Still well worth it!
One of the best meals we have had in a long time. Our steaks were excellent, as were the mashed potatoes and brussel sprouts. Can't wait to come back!
Only complaint is the food comes out super fast and it feels like we’re trying to be rushed out when we want to relax having a few drinks.
Celebrated 2 birthdays. No offer to buy ice cream for them.
Never asked for more ribs, they kept coming with no waiting. Every batch got better!!
Came in for bison burger—should have called first! Not only were they out of bison burgers but all burgers! We are on a keyto diet and when we asked to substitute broccolini for the coleslaw, beans AND potato we were up charged $5 with no notification. When asked...were told that broccolini was more expensive.
I’ve really been craving a bison burger but not sure we’ll go back.
If you like excellent food, great and unusual ambiance along with an unusual wine and spirits list you should give the Woodman Lodge a visit. I've had the lamb chops and the elk medallions, and both are among the best I've ever had. The location is worth the visit and has become one of our favorite places to eat or just have an adult beverage of choice.
Was a little sad they were out of bison burgers! But regular Iowa’s really good too
Virtually perfect evening spent dining at the woodman
My family has celebrated special occasions here numerous times. The staff is always friendly and accomodating. The food is always cooked to ordered temperature. A great rotating menu. I also love that some of the menu items stay consistent...salads, burgers. It is nice to have some consistent items with the rotations. Thanks for a great experience!
We've eaten here several times over the years, but won't be coming back. It's just not worth it. The prices are way too high for the food/experience. There's nothing special about this place anymore and better meals can be had elsewhere for less price. We arrived home full from both food and regret.
The Woodman Lodge is one of our favorites in the Snoqualmie area. The atmosphere is unique and the food and service are always great.
We were very saddened to learn that the restaurant is quietly pushing away families. They have discontinued their kids menu and kid-friendly menu items. They still have a high chair option and didn't turn us away, but we definitely got the vibe that we weren't welcomed as a family anymore, which is really unfortunate considering we enjoyed coming here for small family gatherings, as we did last Tuesday. We had been going there for the last six years, spending well over $300 each time, and they've lost our business going forward. Truly unfortunate situation.
Patrick was a great waiter. We all had a good time celebrating 2 birthdays and St Paddy’s Day! It’s always a bit noisy but we requested a booth further away from the noise and it was good. Wish we had parking near by the restaurant.
Blown away! Going to the Woodsman Lodge was a last minute decision as the dining room at the Salish Ldge we were staying at was fully booked for the evening. I'm so glad we did! The building was incredible, ambiance amazing, felt like stepping back in time. Our wait staff was incredible, attentive, and very knowledgeable, giving us a history of the building when we inquired. Food was a bit pricey, but well worth it. Easily one of the best steaks I've ever eaten and good sized portions. Exceptional experience all around, glad to recommend it to anyone traveling to the city of Snoqualmie. Thanks!
It just gets better every time I go there!
Love this restaurant!
Prime rib was low quality and overly fatty. The service was okay, but not great.
We love the Woodman, sad to know that they have decided to be done with kids coloring pages and crayons and menus...we would come here as a family...disappointing that they are not supporting that as much :(....
Went on Saturday night. Packed! Make a reservation. You’ll definitely need one on the weekends. Service and food top notch. Seated on the main floor nect to the bar. Very noisy which was ok for us. Had ribs, Hanger Steak and garlic bread. Excellent food choices for us.
A dish, a libation and a desert (chocolate cake) were not available. Since we were celebrating two birthdays, this was a disappointment. The food was good, the ambience was delightful and the company was wonderful. We will return.
The wine list is a bit pricey, but the service and quality food made it worth it. I would go back for a special occasion for sure.
Great atmosphere and fantastic food.
I’ve been here several times and this last visit we got their special. A lobster tail. Thinking it was traditional, we got it. The tail had a glaze on it that just ruined the lobster. We did let our waiter know and that we didn’t expect anything in return, but I’d advise folks to double check how their food is prepared. Having just a lobster tail with drawn butter would have been perfect.
Was a very good experience til a big group of drunks sat next to us and ruined the mood, noise level was very loud, felt like a bar upstrairs. Other than that it was quite pleasant
As always, everything was excellent. Jesse is an excellent waiter, and a pleasure to work with.
Been to Woodman lodge before and really enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but today was a different story.....We arrived early for our reservation and sat in the bar for a drink before we were seated. All the servers and bartender were great but I ordered a shot of whiskey that was supposed to be $21 and was charged $27....add that with one martini and it was over $50 for 2 drinks. Once we sat at our table we were informed they only had a basic 4course meal for Valentine’s Day which was $85 a person! There was no mention of the limited menu when making our reservation. They were out of the appetizers and had nothing to offer except doubling your starter choice. We opted to not get the double portion of salad or buffalo shrimp. There was only a couple choices from each course and they weren’t that great. I had the buffalo shrimp starter... it literally was 2 small shrimp and two cheese puffs, what a joke. For the entree my date had the filet, which was good but came with 3 asparagus. I had the lobster which was very small and cold with a small scoop of potatoes. The dessert portion was also sad, extremely small and not great. For a $180 dollar meal this was by far one of the worst experiences I’ve ever had. I will definitely think twice before going back or recommending Woodman lodge to anyone ever again. For these prices there is way to many better options to go to then pay for sub-par food. I doubt I will ever go there again, which is sad because I use to enjoy this place.
Outstanding all around best food and best service! Our waiter Doug was professional, kind, and best server all around! Will absolutely be going back!
Poor service on Valentine's day when you know you're going to be busy. Food portions were small and left still hungry for a "special " Valentine's day menu. They were out of food on the "special " menu. When food arrived, it was cold. Very slow bringing out courses. All that for 300 bucks for two person meal. Very, very disappointing.
Valentine's day dinner was too expensive for the amount of food.
My wife and I truly enjoyed our Valentine's dinner. The menu was fabulous and every one of the four courses we choose were fantastic. That tomato soup, DELICIOUS! We were impressed with the service, the food and the atmosphere. This will become our annual dinner!
A real gem on the eastside
Food is good, prices a bit high but worth it. Been to the Woodman twice. First time our server was a jerk and basically asked us to finish up so he can seat another reservation. Our server this time was nice, not pushy and very playful! Glad I gave this restaurant another chance after the horrible first experience.
Best cocktails in the valley! Every time we make it in food and service are always on point!
Fine dining Steak House in historical building.
Easy drive. Seafood options available as well as poultry vegetarian and salads.
Loved the artichoke appetizer and large bottled wine selection.
The food was amazing and the service was spectacular! We were very lucky to eat here for our honeymoon and were even treated to a delicious dessert.
Great bar and friendly bartenders!Had slow food service. Forgot our appetizer. Pork Chop was extremely fatty... very little meat.Overall... not a good experience.
I made reservations online. We were a few minutes early, so we were asked to wait in the bar. We had not finished our glass of wine yet when 3 different hostesses came to tell us our table was ready and they were very adamant that we cash out at the bar first...which is pretty unprofessional for a nice restaurant when the bar is in the same space as the tables. Took forever to get the bartenders attention to pay the bill. Meanwhile hostesses kept coming over to tell us to tab out..We were seated at a miniscule table, the size of small writing desk, with a narrow space and another table on either side. We ordered the artichoke as an appetizer which we could not finish as there literally was not enough room on the table when our main dishes arrived. If you are going to use gigantic plates then you should not have tables so small that two entrees do not leave enough room for one appetizer. I asked for a condiment, which was not brought until my meal was basically finished. The waiter had to wedge himself between our table and the next one to take a party of six's order, which meant his backside was basically over our table for a good 5 minutes. Overall a very mediocre experience for an expensive meal. The food was good but not exceptional.
I always have a great time at woodman. The food is great and the service was excellent.
We really enjoyed our night there.
Great food and exceptional service from our waiter, Patrick. We will be back! Thank you!
We made dinner reservations early and it worked out perfectly. Many times we get there too late and they're closing. We enjoyed our waiter, the food and drinks. Of course, we love the atmosphere and steaks are always delicious. Had a very nice relaxing and enjoyable evening!
Great atmosphere. Great cocktails. Mediocre food for the price. I came to the Snoqualmie area from Oakland, CA to nerd out on the Twin Peaks locales for my 40th birthday extravaganza. Decided to hit up Woodman for my official birthday dinner because of the great reviews, and because it WASN'T a Twin Peaks location (but looked like it could be). It had an old-timey workman's lodge vibe, with taxidermy on the walls, but it had major-metropolitan prices. That being the case in a small town, I expected to be blown away by the food, but I just wasn't--I've cooked better food at home.
