The Rainbow Grille is fantastic and so is the Tavern - I just wish there were more seats in the bar area to accommodate the diners - It's nice to sit by the fire and hear stories about the days adventures from other travelers! The dinning room can make you fall asleep!

The food and service are always excellent. Be sure to call as far in advance as possible because reservations are essential and they have a strange and sometimes confusing system. They only serve a certain number of tables per hour and they don't call it "reservation only" but it really is. Sometimes the bar is filled with obnoxious people but... More

We ate at the Rainbow Grille during our Christmas stay at the Tall Timber Lodge. We made the reservations months in advance and I'm glad we did because it was busy! The food was amazing. We had the stuffed mushrooms and the boys had clam chowder soup for appetizers. Mushrooms were fabulous! Boys said the soup was good as well.... More

We are both originally from NH and wanted to get together with friends and relatives and the... More

We tend to visit Tall Timer Lodge about once a year for a weekend get-away and always enjoy the beauty of the place and friendliness of the staff. It had been a while since we dined at the Rainbow Grill and Tavern. We usually are at the Lodge over a weekend and forget to book the restaurant in advance so... More

We had dinner at Rainbow Grille and Tavern and were pleasantly surprised by the extensive menu. The steak choices were top notch. My husband had the ribeye and it was flavorful and cooked to perfection. The restaurant is located on the water at Back Lake and if you dine early the view are wonderful. The food was very good and... More
