BKR and I pulled over from our trip up north; late afternoon visibility on the winter roads had become horrendous. The Cariboo Lodge was an oasis on this unpleasant journey. Let's begin with our reception: first class, friendly, and warm. The log construction decor matches the Cariboo region. Further, everything was spotless. We opted for simple menu options. The hamburger... More

We found it to be very pricey for the type of restaurant. I had a half caesar salad with chicken with was just OK. My husband had the dinner special which he found to be quite tasty but gain pricey for what he got. Our server was very pleasant and we did have good service.

Ray & I love to stop for a break & a meal at The Cariboo Lodge. We first stopped there last summer on a scorchingly HOT day. With 2 dogs, we couldn't leave them in the car but the woman who served us suggested we tether them under a tree, behind there outdoor seating area. This was a great idea... More

Arrive at 7pm for dinner and by 7:50pm the chef is noisily hoovering/vacumming the dining room and right by our table. Another table is asked because the staff are shutting curtains at 7:50pm and then asked to move to the bar area. Great omelets and breakfast service - where when the evening service is as outlined night and day in... More

The food was was like home cooking and big servings without waiting! Fresh fruit... More

I started off in the restaurant but it was crowded, noisy, and had zero atmosphere, so went next door to the pub. Great atmosphere, and despite the fact that the waiter gave my order to another table and I got theirs (I pointed it out but said I'd keep it as the other people were already eating mine), the food...

Lasagna was good - otherwise the menu was very ordinary. Didn't get our salad - gave it to another table! We didn't bother to re-order. It's an old, historic building - attractive in and out - lots of animal trophies on the walls.

My wife and I recently visited Clinton for her business and we stayed at the Lodge for 2 nights. We have stayed here often and it has always been immaculately clean. The rooms are basic but the bed(s) are comfortable. They have decent wifi though it's a tad slow. This time we were in the midst of a heat wave... More

This restaurant has amazing burgers. The service is great and their patio is beautiful. Very convenient location right on the highway. If you stop to eat you can walk around the town where they have many antique stores. We stopped at this place on our way north and we liked it so much (you must get the Cariboo Burger) that... More
