We didn't stay at the lodge, but ate lunch outside by the rapids. The food was good, the ambience was excellent and the staff were exceptional. Great town to walk and shop for the day. Lots of activities nearby.

Superb setting on large fast water tree lined creek...sit on the patio in summer. Rude management, OK service and above average food.

Okay, I'll be honest, I'd probably eat at the Rapids even if their food wasn't that great because the historic, quaint atmosphere and view of the river are really what makes the place. Get their early (5-5:30pm) so you can get a table by the...More

If you are looking for a high end restaurant with great food, pass this by. The Brie appetizer is the ONLY thing I could recommend. I have never seen a filet mignon served as two medallions and the Kahlua cream sauce was overly sweet. Forget...More
