Dinner was very good. We had two blackened salmons, one broiled and a tempura cod. Served with baked potato / french fries / spaghetti. Definitely a great spot around to stop by. We had not realized before actually going in that they had a room in the back, where we were served, which was way fancier than what you see... More

You can't beat the atmosphere of the Lake Quinault Lodge, but for dinner at least, the food down the road at Salmon House is where it's at -- superior selection and value and often better quality. We came at a particularly busy time when they were understaffed and we had to wait around 15 minutes for a table, but once... More

While planning our west coast road trip, I discovered this place as its part of the Rain Forest Resort Village. Way before we left for our trip, we planned to stay at the resort and eat at the Salmon House. We were not disappointed. Service, atmosphere and food were all excellent. Try the Blackened Salmon - yum!!

Casual restaurant with really good food. I had the smoked salmon appetizer which is not to be missed, served with cream cheese, capers, and crackers; followed by the pan-seared Northwest oysters which were excellent. Husband enjoyed his fried mushrooms appetizer. Service was good but not spectacular. View of Lake Quinault was very relaxing.

Salmon House came with high recommendations and did not disappoint. The salmon must have been caught nearby that day (they pride themselves on never frozen). It was the freshest and most delicious salmon I've ever had. They have numerous ways of serving it - blackened, dill, etc. The waitress was willing to allow us to alter the menu a bit... More

We enjoyed the pan fried oysters. The blackberry pie was fresh and warm and delicious. There is a beautiful view of the lake from every table. Although the outside doesn't look especially inviting, the huge dinning room and bar was a very nice and inviting surprise. Very friendly staff and nicely presented food made us feel welcome. We had an... More

After a long day exploring Olympic National Park, great to have a high quality restaurant right across from lodging. Sits right on Lake Quinault. Fantastic views of lake while dining - sunset views.

Fantastic Salmon cooked all ways. Attentive staff. Brought our own wine for average corkage fee. Salad bar was basic - nothing exciting but the salmon was the attraction.

We arrived at about 7.30pm but were told we would have to wait for 45 mins, so we left our names and went to walk along the lake shore and watch the sunset. We had a delicious meal here. Very good service and a really nice atmosphere. Recommended, but allow for a wait as it is popular.

My wife and I stayed in Quinault for two nights. Both nights we ate at the Salmon House. Everything was excellent. My wife had the blackened salmon and I had the dill. Our Waitress Jennifer was one of the best waitresses that we have ever had eating out anywhere. Jennifer makes some of the desserts. Ask for a dessert menu... More
