We stopped here for lunch on a recent trip to Crater Lake.We didn't have a window table but enjoyed the views of the room and towards the lake. Not a huge menu but the service was good and food came quickly.Even with food allergies(dairy,legumes) I was able to enjoy a meal.

This restaurant is only one of two places to eat in the park. The food is just average, but overpriced. I had the salmon, and my friend had the chicken, and the bill came to $80 with tip. That did not include any drinks. A better option would be to sit on the patio overlooking the gorgeous view of the... More

The dining room is historic as the lodge. Lodge type food . Not great, not bad either. I had both a dinner and a breakfast in the dining room and was satisfied. Lamb chos overdone, and a wonderful salad. Breakfast was a boring omelet, with wonderful service.

We celebrated our anniversary and toasted at dinner over looking the lake. Excellent food, service and atmosphere. It was the perfect end to an amazing day seeing crater lake and taking in all the beauty of the surroundings. Staff very attentive and hard working. Breakfast was excellent too! Go early and get a cocktail and hang out on the deck... More

We spent a day exploring Crater Lake, the Lodge, the Rim Tour and various trails. We had not planned on lunching at the Lodge but we were in visiting and it was just after 1:00. We were hungry and checked the menu - what a surprise! The prices were much less than we had expected so we gave it a... More

We had breakfast and dinner at the Lodge here. It is an interesting experience, but food could be better. Breakfast we had pancakes, bacon, Pinnacles omelette, all was very good. The biscuit was not a true biscuit, but more like a pancake. The jam was excellent. Supper was a bit different. We had the bison meatloaf and the lamb. My... More

We had all of our meals at the Crater Lake Lodge Restaurant. We found the food to be very good and the staff was very friendly. We had Misty several times as our server and she was a joy to have. It is the only game in town so we tried to have realistic expectations. Reservations are needed for dinner... More

My husband loved the elk chops - meaty and well seasoned in a huckleberry glaze. I loved our mussels as appetizers and the beet salad. Atmosphere is a little dim but waiter service helped create a relaxing, unrushed setting.

I was at Crater Lake years ago. Well, a lot of years ago and I didn't feel I could afford to stay there. I tried this year, but they were booked. However, we enjoyed a wonderful late lunch in the dining room. Our server, Arthur, was excellent. We enjoyed him very much. The food was very good, but not necessarily... More
