Stayed at lodge and ate here 3x. Dinner twice & breakfast buffet on Sunday. Food was consistently good, service friendly, and the prices are reasonable too. Our dinner companions had steaks, we had pasta dishes and salads. Everyone liked their meals. Breakfast buffet had blintzes, blueberry and cherry compotes, and a wonderful green chili egg casserole. I had a veggie omelette and it was delicious! Drinks in the bar were generous pours and they made my cubalibras with two limes as requested. When you walk in the restaurant don't get turned off by bar appearance, the food is worth it!

Nice friendly tavern with full service dining option. I had SW dinner that was NOT on the menu..they customized the combo plate for me! Good food. My dining friend had Cobb Salad that was available in either the HALF or WHOLE portion. The half size is entree sized! Good value. Service a bit slow...but they were busy, which always means this is a popular eatery! They also offer dining service in the outdoor patio area of the Tavern and it is PET-FRIENDLY

Love this place as it's clean, reasonably priced, nicely decorated and the food, especially the New Mexican food and green chili, are just great. Full bar with cool cocktails and cold brews.
