An excellent dinning experience with a beautiful view in a beautiful mountain lodge We had an excellent breakfast and an outstanding dinner. The fresh king salmon was excellent done to perfection and so very very fresh. The executive Chef was very visible in the restaurant visiting tables and making sure everyone was very satisfied with their food. Definitely a place... More

The servers try hard, but they aren't trained for the job in most cases. The service was slow, although they did bring our first course before the cocktails. You can always tell a cocktail made from a non cocktail maker. Cocktails made to a recipe that is looked up and consulted during the entire process are never right. Ice sits... More

This restaurant has had some ups and downs. It is up now! Quality ingredients, well prepared. Very good service. Not a bargain, but not over-priced either. If you are staying in Mazama, it's a much better choice than a night drive to Winthrop.

Good but not exceptional breakfasts, always excellent creative dinners and new bar and cocktails to add to your enjoyment. Setting is awesome huge wood burning fireplace and overlooking the lake.

Had breakfast and dinner here during our stay. Best of all, the dining room and bar are lovely to look at, the view superb, the fireplace a welcome attraction during the cool weather. First breakfast: the corned beef hash is tip-top though I was curious why the toast portion was a mere half piece. That said, the kitchen was extremely... More

Had the good fortune to have dinner here! My wife ordered the coffee rubbed rib steak while I had some of the best scallops ever. Both perfectly prepared. The smoked salmon appetizer was almost a meal in itself and very good. While I typically avoid dinner in hotel restaurants as I have frequently been disappointed this one is not to... More

Let's face it restaurants located at the end of the universe and far from the madding crowd are always at a slight disadvantage as to what's being offered in the city. That being said the Freestone pulls it off with excellent food, beautiful scenery, and a relaxed atmosphere. We really enjoyed our meals both breakfast, and happy hour selections were... More

The food was good a bit pricey. I am a hiker and prefer a cozy place and a feel for ownership. Thus place does not have this but I am sure it the food and the view would win people over ..

The Freestone Inn Dining Room (Sandy Butte Bistro) provides outstanding dinners and breakfasts. The happy hour was a pleasant surprise. We've had great full dinners and breakfasts there, so we decided to give happy hour a try. We were delighted with the quality and quantity of delicious food, and the draft beer was unexpectedly good. Nice friendly wait staff too.

A very fun and creative menu. Fresh and oh so flavorfull! Home made breads, so yummy. My husband had the burger and truffle fries. I had the gnocchi with prawns and it was delicious. Asparagus so nice. Nice wine and beer choices to add that special touch. Great morning coffee! Corn beef hash, was so good, eggs were cooked perfectly.... More
