We ate at the Rainbow Grille during our Christmas stay at the Tall Timber Lodge. We made the reservations months in advance and I'm glad we did because it was busy! The food was amazing. We had the stuffed mushrooms and the boys had clam chowder soup for appetizers. Mushrooms were fabulous! Boys said the soup was good as well.... More

We are both originally from NH and wanted to get together with friends and relatives and the... More

We tend to visit Tall Timer Lodge about once a year for a weekend get-away and always enjoy the beauty of the place and friendliness of the staff. It had been a while since we dined at the Rainbow Grill and Tavern. We usually are at the Lodge over a weekend and forget to book the restaurant in advance so... More

We had dinner at Rainbow Grille and Tavern and were pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu. The steak choices were top notch. My husband had the ribeye and it was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is located on the water at Back Lake and if you dine early the view are wonderful. The food was very good and... More

Place was booked, but we were able to squeeze in. The food was excellent and worth every penny. The portion sizes are huge so keep that in mind. The fact that it was in front of a lake made the experience even more memorable. Plus, an added benefit was that they had wifi which up in that area is very... More

No where better to go for a nice relaxing dinner with large plates of very tasty food! Staff is very friendly and we were able to get in without reservations. Restaurant has a bar attached which overlooks the lake. If your in Pittsburg this is a stop that shouldn't be ignored

The food is outstanding, well prepared and tasty. The rustic ambiance with views of the lake complete the experience. The Rainbow Grill rivals any Five Star restaurant found in major cities.
