My family and I had dinner at the Rapids. The best part of the meal was the raspberry sorbet they serve after the soup or salad to cleanse your palate before the main course arrives. I had the smoked salmon, my husband had the elk...More

We had lunch at the rapids lodge restaurant today and it was awesome. We wanted to eat outside so it was a quick 10 minute wait for a table. In the meantime the bartender, Tatriana, made us AWESOME drinks and took a photo for us....More
