But you can wait and not need them. The atmosphere is dramatic and seems like your in the middle of a movie set. The food is good, the prices reasonable. Good soup. You go for the view but the food is okay. The menu is standard but with regional food and cuisine.

Very good National Park dining room. The food is average, but there are marvelous views of Crater Lake from inside this turn of the last century lodge. We were there on a cold day (34 degrees mid-day), and the indoor warmth and smells just added to the whole experience. We usually avoid Park Service dining, but this is the exception.

My husband and I were fortunate that we made it to the lodge at an odd dining time so we were able to be seated. And what a seat - at a window overlooking the lake and surrounding hills. Our meal was good and it felt like a treat to be there.

We ate in the dining room at Crater Lake lodge several times during our three-night stay in early August (breakfast and dinner). The food was consistently very good and the service was always excellent. There was a nice variety of items on the menu for both breakfast and dinner. The food was served quickly and was always very appetizing. The... More

We were looking forward to visiting the Lodge as we couldn't get a room there. The public rooms are marvelous and the views from the terrace awesome, but we wanted a meal. Lunch it was. Nice menu, nice table, reasonable choices. Food came quickly, too quickly which indicated that it was preheated and the priority was to turn those tables... More

So my overall impression of dinner was well above average. When thinking about writing this review, I realized that it was really the steak and it's preparation that was above average, and much of the rest of the meal was merely average. the Filet Oscar was beautifully presented, perfectly cooked, well-seasoned and appropriately tender. The bread was definitely sourdough, and... More

My husband and I wanted to have lunch here but we thought it would be too crowded. We are still not sure why it wasn't. The parking lot was so jammed we had to wait for a spot. I think the reason we got a table immediately was because there were just 2 of us and we got there a... More

We only had the opportunity to have breakfast at the Crater Lake Lodge. The lodge itself is lovely and rustic. If you can get a seat next to a window that is ideal. Our servers were excellent. Someone kept filling our water glasses and coffee when it was low or empty. The breakfast meal was good, but it was the... More

Over a 2 day period, we ate two lunches, a dinner and dessert here. The wait staff was very attentive and kind to our family. When I ordered a dry cappuccino, it arrived perfect. Their vegetarian choices are slim, but unique. The waitresses were all well-versed in what was actually vegetarian or vegan. I enjoyed their Beer Cheese soup, and... More

but you'll find much better meals in Portland...My salmon dinner was good. My husband's steak was superb. Pricey, but for a dinner experience where we wouldn't be surprised if Teddy himself appeared, the Crater Lake Lodge was priceless!
