Woodman Lodge Ratings and Reviews
Was recommended to visit Woodman Lodge by the Salish Lodge hotel. Booked through Open Table.
Starter had Coconut Tiger Prawns - deep fried for way too long - dry and tasteless.
Mains we had burgers which were ok but nothing special. Lacking an imaginative sauce/dressing, only served with ketchup. The fries were nice though.
Perhaps we should have had the steak but at $50-60 each we didn't trust it would be good enough.
Generally we thought this restaurant was way over priced for what is a very average American grill.
Afterwards OpenTable received a report that we hadn't turned up. Disappointing!
Let me start saying my wife and I had a great 20 th anaversay dinner, service was professional as should be. We had the flet' s and they were outstanding. Robert, the exec. Chef came by and spent more time with us then expected, we will be going back every chance possible.
THe Woodman is known for it's fine food and there is obviously a reason for that. Not only is it excellent in taste, it is excellent in variety.. Moose-ka-bobs anyone? I really like a good Mojito and theiers are the BEST. Their steak is really good and it is what I order most often. The serice was a bit slow Thursdaybut they weerereally corowed for a Thursday . The drinks were slow in coming, again I guess to a lot of patrons that evening.
Great food. Steaks were a bit small this time. Awesome atmosphere... They added a self playing piano... Fun! Service was not great this time. We had to ask for service after we were seated. Waiter hadn't memorized his liquor options, which is a problem if you don't have it anywhere on your menu. Appetizers were awesome by the way. Overall good experience but have had better dinners there... Bit too bad as these is/was or favorite restaurant.
Everything is amazingly great from the menu, service, food preparation, wine menu. Something for everyone, not just the meat eaters. The guys appreciated the large portion size.
This place is really great and I have never left disappointed in the least. Worth every penny.
They always do an outstanding job on steaks/meat. But one in the party had Rosemary Fries-greasy, served cool and disappointing. One had Romaine Wedge Salad-2 of us tasted it-all agreed it was just too salty to finish it. Dessert was fresh Peach Cobbler-with vanilla ice cream. Hot and delicious but some peaches were green and we found large slices that were hard to cut bite size. Most meat portions are very large - need to split or take home goodies. Will be back. :) Quaint old building. Friendly staff-great martini. Had a 4.5 experience before-but not this time.
Arrived on time to an unprepared restaurant. Waited at bar for table and drinks that took forever to arrive although bartender was extremely apologetic and understaffed. Drinks were good. Sat at table finally to a friendly server who was not a professional which I would expect for an establishment serving a $60 steak. Overall disappointing experience.
We visited for Father's day, a set menu $45 which did set our expectations. We both had Crab Benedict, the eggs were hard which are a fundamental part in this dish, they appeared almost 70 minutes after we arrived, we did have a small first course first. The waitress did offer to have them redone but at that stage, we were hungry, she was very pleasant and reduced the overall bill but still. We have been here for dinner several times, always great but not recently. The décor is really well done, old time saloon with lots of trophy heads on the walls, self playing piano etc
We went for Father's Day brunch where the menu options for anything that would be considered breakfast was extremely limited. The options were horrible and the food was not that great. The worst was the desserts, definitely not what you would expect for $45. It is a shame because we had heard such wonderful things about their brunch from when it was a regular thing. I would say they have definitely gone down hill. The service and atmosphere were pleasant.
Great food , great people sitting next to us, great time at prices well below Seattle or Bellevue. No complaints at all and the service was good. We sat next too a table of ladies from a retirement home in Northgate. Apparently this is The Woodman's idea of a ice cream sundae. They were having a great time too!
Great food and service. BBQ Back Ribs are favs (all you can eat on Tuesday night) but Buffalo Burger and Elk have their fans as well. Extended and eclectic wine list. Location easy access right next door to the Snoqualmie Train Depot in Downtown Snoqualmie.
Have been several times and never had a bad meal. The chef is a master with scallops...no grit, each one perfectly cooked, seared on the outside and silk smooth on inside. Never got a rubber scallop at the Woodman.
Also very good with beef. You might find a better steak somewhere else, but you'll pay at least double for it. The food is awesome, the price is right, and you don't have to dress up.
Our favorite item is the Roasted Artichoke appetizer. As always it was excellent. There is an extensive wine list, although the by-the-glass selection is limited. The food is always very good, but this has always an expensive evening out. Service is attentive.
The restaurant is nicely decorated with a player piano, animal trophies, and photos of early Snoqualmie. There is also a beautiful chandelier hanging at the entrance. We sat in a booth and the seats were not all that comfortable.
The drinks were good, but expensive. There is a wide variety of food select from. We started with a charcuterie plate, which was very good. My wife had the salmon for dinner and I had the Steak Pierre. The portion was good sized. I asked for medium and it was more on the rare side in the middle. For dessert we had the cobbler. It was soupy and the fruit should have been cut up more, the apples were not quite fork tender, and we only had a spoon.
The service left quite a bit to be desired. The waiter was plenty nice enough, but for the money we expected much more of a 5 star service experience.
Overall, the restaurant is nice, probably not worth the price tag they charge. I would go back just to try the elk medallions and the buffalo, this time we just wanted to stick with something we knew, since we had never eaten here before.
Woodman Lodge is a "dining experience" - good food in a rustic historical setting. It's a bit pricey, but generally hits the mark. We went for Mothers' Day brunch. My wife's French Toast was excellent, but I was a little disappointed in the size of my Prime Rib portion. Still, it was good. Service is prompt and attentive.
The Woodman theme is an echo of the Pioneer Saloon in Ketchum, Idaho, with a meat-centric menu singing the same tune. Lots of stuffed animals on the walls, stairs to navigate to the upstairs seating instead of down as at the Pio. Prime rib falls short of the Pio mark, though, and monster steaks can have a thick charred hide over a still chilled center. And that was a medium rare order. Perhaps, on-average, it WAS medium rare, just not in any single bite. Ribs were shared happily. Cocktails were decent and wine menu showed typical 50% markup over retail.
The charred caesar salad a meal in itself., but the single star on the menu may be the bacon that trims the American Wagyu burger; eyes-closed tasting says "RIBS" in the best possible way.
Service is cheerful and accommodating with special attention to kids, making life easy for families but the kids menu is kinda meh. Corn dogs or burger? Mac and cheese with unfamiliar flavors? Yes, it's sad when you cannot coax the 7 year old to branch out.
This is lots of criticism for a 4-star review, and we will return again and again, but maybe we should head back to Ketchum for our meat fix.
