Our dinner was fantastic! We were celebrating Mom's 80th birthday and Jesse, our server, went above and beyond to acknowledge our special lady! We thoroughly enjoyed Jesse's service. He holds just the right balance of being there at the right time, perfect amount of small talk, great descriptions on food and beverage, and generally just a pleasant person to have at our table! Steak, scallops both delicious. The Woodman Wedge with steak was perfection! Molton Lava Cake was to die for! Our food was great as usual, but Jesse made our visit awesome! Thanks Jesse! PS I LOVE the ginger beer you serve! It's a good one!

Good food. Very filling. 20 oz camp cowboy steak was good for 2 people but order side dish and appetizer and dessert. Not bad for 2 people.

We went to Woodman Lodge for Mother’s Day brunch- and were very disappointed. $69/person plus beverages, etc. ended up being almost $100/person with 1 mimosa and tip. Only 2 breakfast items on the menu- the rest lunch items. I had the dungeoness crab omelette and it was NOT good. I love breakfast food and am not picky but I couldn’t finish it. I tried putting different sauces on top to make it taste better but did not help. They offered 1 starter and 1 entree as a part of the brunch - the starters were either coffee cake or chowder/salad/lunch starters. It was the type of meal you might find somewhere for $10-15... but $70 is ridiculous for the quality of food, options and what you receive. There are so many incredible brunches that are $69/person or less all around - I would definitely say no to this one. In fact, I doubt I will ever go back there for any meal. Our waitress was friendly but not attentive or professional and the most attentive she was was when it was time for our bill.

The place is cool looking- very authentic for Snoqualmie history - but the food was not good and extremely overpriced. They could have an awesome open brunch upstairs with lots of options and stations- but they have really missed the mark- or they aren’t capable of a good brunch and if so- just charge standard restaurant prices for mediocre food and call it a day. We planned slightly last minute- so I guess I should have known when they had so many open reservations- was hoping because it’s further from Bellevue/Seattle but it turns out others must know how bad their food is and they avoid it. Lesson learned!

We used to love this place. We’ve been here many times for Mother’s Day brunch and other events. We were here this past Sunday for mother’s day once again. We had no problem with there being a set menu. We did have a problem with the fact that we paid $60 each for a brunch that was mediocre at best. My mom had the crab omelette which was small and mostly just goat cheese. It was worth about $12 and that’s being generous. I realize they don’t typically do brunch, however, if you’re going to open early and offer a special menu, everything on that menu should be outstanding. And for god sake, if you’re going to charge that much for brunch, throw in a dessert. They didn’t even have dessert available, period. Although it was rectified, the first bill we received charged us separately for our first and second dish. Instead of $59, it was $75 each. This caused undue stress and led to an uncomfortable conversation with the waiter having to dispute the enormous bill. Overall, not a good experience. I was sad that the special day I planned for my mom and sister didn’t really work out the way I’d hoped. We absolutely will not be back. This felt like a huge money grab and a half assed attempt to make us think we were getting something valuable. Really disappointing.

We had a great Mother’s Day experience. I’ll be honest, it was a tad expensive for what we received (maybe include the drink and another course), but the food was excellent, the ambience was great and most importantly, MOM loved her Mother’s Day Brunch.

Group of 4 of us went for a birthday dinner, I've dined here multiple times, this was the last. Ordered the Filet Oscar - medium rare. 3 of us ordered the exact same thing: all 3 Filet's were cooked beyond medium well, mine specifically was well done. There was zero pink.

We brought up the server was so stoned he wasn't sure what to do, he just kind of shrugged us off and didn't come back for over a half hour. We decided as a group to eat and just not come back.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.
