Enjoyed a very pleasant dinner here and it was quite good. everything was fresh and a far as the greens go, organic. Breakfast was a polar opposite. it was obvious my breakfast omelet (the salmon) was leftovers and the breakfast potatoes were cold and rubbery. I also rate breakfast service by the speed of coffee being served and this wait... More

The view of the lake is the star attraction here, the food is the supporting actor. We've eaten dinner here twice. Last summer my wife had the elk burger and thought it was the best she's had; for $20 it should be. I had one of the specials of the day, pan fried trout. It was very good and the... More

Ate here three nights, three different wait staff, three different levels of service. Plentiful amount of food that is well prepared, but they have got you so they charge you accordingly. Fabulous view of the lake while you eat. Try the Salmon House tasty food less expensive.

In 1937 FD Roosevelt visited this beautiful lodge on a fact finding tour and had lunch in the restaurant. Nine months later he signed a bill naming Olympic National Park. Thus the restaurant was named after him. The food is good but pricy. The grounds are spectacular.

In the lodge, very charming, good views, bird feeders right outside. Nice staff. Food is good, servings a little large. Wine list nice, a little pricey. Sometimes slow, but it's a great place to wait. Best for dinner, okay for breakfast, bit heavy for lunch.

First, I would like to compliment the entire staff of the Roosevelt Room for their professionalism, and kindness. The food, breakfast and dinner, was prepared with care and was delicious. The suggested wine pairings were on point. You can feel the history of the Roosevelt Room and we were honored to be allowed to be a part of it. You... More

Food is good, but not worth an average of $20/plate. Good for just going for dinner a couple nights if you are staying at the lodge, but definitely not worth the cost of eating 3 meals a day here.

Had dinner and breakfast here. Overall, a beautiful dining room worthy of a 5-star restaurant but the service and quality of food is more like a 3-star restaurant. For dinner, I had the duck breast; it was tough and chewy and the presentation a bit sloppy, not worth the $30+ they charged. My wife ordered the elk burger and it... More

We had an Easter dinner at the Roosevelt room. The dinner salad was excellent and so was the Hot bread. The food was very good but my fillet was chewy. My son loved the mushroom risotto. It's the only place you can eat and it's not cheap but I would come back.

Terrible food very over priced! $26 for tasteless mushroom risotto. Rice was hard and undercooked. Kids meals OK. Very friendly server. The food just doesn't cut it. You're better off with a hot dog & chips from The Mercantile across the street. Not eating here ever again!
