The restaurant food was so so, I had the Hot Turkey Sandwich. The setting was great right next to river, with river access. A lot of old collections inside diner. Staff was friendly. Did not stay in the cabins, just passing thru.

We recently drove to Mt. Rainier to view the beautiful fall colors and had lunch at Whistlin Jack Lodge. We were seated at a nice corner table with two windows which had a beautiful view of the Naches River and colorful fall landscape. We all enjoyed the special which was too large prime rib BBQ beef sandwiches each, and a generous portion of JoJo's. They make their own BBQ sauce which was excellent. Our server, Crissy, was very attentive and courteous. I asked her about the negative reviews I had read and she explained the chef who had been there for 27 years retired and several new chefs have come and gone. However, she said the chef they have now is doing a great job. We agree with Crissy. We will definitely be back.

We have stopped at the restaurant of Whistling Jacks several times over the past few years and enjoyed the food and the descriptive menu. However, our last visit was very disappointing, and we won't be going back.

The chef must have left and taken his recipes with him. The fish sandwich went from "Alaskan cod filet on an artisan roll, with melted Guyer cheese, etc." to fish on a bun. And it was over cooked.

The other people in our party did not have better luck with their choices than I did.

The hostess gave some of us blank menus, and others got the Christmas menu. She did exchange them for current menus, but then gave the same incorrect menus to the next patrons that entered.

Our waitress did try very hard to take care of us, and the setting is still beautiful, just don't eat there.

Nothing has changed at Whistlin' Jacks in the 30 years I've been visiting. Its exactly as I remember it as a kid. Dont expect a lot, and you wont be disappointed. Location is amazing if you want to explore Chinook Pass. We didnt enjoy dinner at the lodge, however breakfast was exactly as expected. This place is classic PacNW, cozy and fun. Our group had a bungalow (Sunnyside) and a lodge room (#7), the couple in the lodge room really enjoyed their room, and the cool breeze from the open window. Sunnyside was less pleasant, stuff without air conditioning and limited ability to open the window for air. Bungalows come with private hot tubs, we didnt partake. At $140 for the lodge and $220 for the bungalow, Whistlin' Jacks a bit expensive - but they are the only game in town. Yakima is 45 minutes away.

Room Tip: Upper floor lodge rooms
