Stayed at the cedar lodge for 2 nights, had breakfast there the 2 mornings, generally waitress was switched off and uninterested, so I went looking for an English tea bag, found one by the limited breakfast buffet and it was snatched out of my hand by a 60 something waitress as well as bring shouted out! Talk about customer service! I explained that I only wanted 1 tea bag, In Which case she actually let me keep it for my drink! How generous!
Buffet not great and generally all evening meals are $20+ for average food!
But little choice around cedar lodge so be prepared to pay!

Felt like Id gone back in time as I entered the restaurant as the decor was very dated. Strange atmosphere but staff were pleasant and attentive. The salad was tasty but the burger lacked seasoning and it would of been better to have the option of adding cheese or other toppings. Very pricey I think the bar and grill would be the better option.

Food was average, a bit expensive, but not much else to choose from in the area. Soup and salad bar, but not many choices on salad bar. Busy, but pagers for waiting that work over the whole property.

I found the selection at the restaurant very restricted. I was really looking forward to some decent salads and more choices however that was not to be. I really think they need to re-think their menu and upgrade it with more healthy choices in regard to side dishes and basic menu options. No so much fried food.

If you are staying at Cedar Lodge and have no transport you have little choice than to eat here. The meal was average and the service poor. Had to wait for table to be cleared and long time for meal to arrive. Very disappointing!
