We weren't expecting much from this restaurant but their salad bar was good and the clam chowder was also pretty good. Get their salmon dish, it was phenomenal. My husband got that and I got something else and after tasting his, I had wished I went with the salmon!

This is part of the hotel complex and a good place too eat if you arrive after a long drive or a long day in the park. I had trout for dinner and it was delicious.

On a rainy weekend we ate here. The food was just ok. Service was good, but the chicken dish was dry. Suggest you go to the pizza place next door.

We were taken here by our son, and first visited the bar with its soaring, cathedral like ceiling and glass walls. Not an easy space to heat, but in the middle was an enormous hearth with a blazing fire, which was benefitting all the clientele, not just those sitting nearby.
The view was great, and made even more so by the powdery snow that fell all during our stay.
The service was friendly and efficient, and we considered eating in the bar at first, but felt we wanted something more substantial and refined.
So having ensured our eight week old granddaughter was fed and happily asleep, we made our way to the restaraunt, where we were served an excellent meal, with a good choice of fish meat and vegetarian dishes. Again, spectacular architecture, but kept cosily warm, and subtely lit, so we felt comfortable (as did our granddaughter who slept throuhout the meal).
