Took my parents out for supper. What an absolutely outstanding evening we had. Service was great, food was great!!! The view of the lake as boats slowly went by was awesome for sure. We went early at 4 pm so as to avoid the rush of a Memorial day weekend rush. Glad we did. I will always take guests from... More

My wife and I dined here our first night in town and it truly is a floating restaurant. With your entrée (mine was Prime Rib) you can help yourself to the salad bar. It had a variety of good things to make a salad out of and everything was fresh and very tasty. My salad was so filling I could... More

We go to Cedars often, because of the salad bar. Always the best. My favorite thing is to get an appetizer and the salad bar.

Make sure you order asparagus as the presentation and they way it was prepared was outstanding. As for appetizers, you won't go wrong with them. If you have a... More

We drove from Spokane for dinner as this was recommended to us by a local when we said we wanted to have a special dinner for a graduation celebration. We all enjoyed it very much. It is a novel setting being on the water with beautiful views. Two of us had the prime rib which was very tender. One had... More
