The food, the service, and the setting are pretty much average. Nothing stellar on the menu, but nothing terrible either.

We found out upon arrival that we could not sit upstairs because they had just cleaned the carpet that day and it was still smelling like chemicals. They sat us in the bar area which was crowded and loud. We were celebrating a 40th birthday...and wanted a nice meal at a "nicer" restaurant so this wasn't what we had in mind. The food was average - nothing special and some of us did not like the meal at all - tough meat/ribs.More

Have eaten dinner here numerous times in dining room. In area today at lunchtime and decided to stop for lunch. Dining room was closed but bar area was opened. Very disappointed at price and food. Brian our waiter was excellent. Worked by himself serving tables...and bar area. I had a crab cake sandwich. Tomato was dried up. Enjoyed crabcake but was a little different from dinner crabcake and french fries. They were good. My husband ordered a gouda burger well done. Upon biting into it it was pinker than he liked. As he got to.middle it was dripping blood at which point he stopped eating it and ate the tomato and lettuce. Brian graciously took.half off. Have always had good luck for dinner. Maybe it was just lunchMore

We were in Deep Creek for a quick visit. We are still concerned about inside dining, so ordered our food for takeout. ( The outside area was not available yet) We had a our burgers to go, including a "to go cup" for my wine!...The staff was helpful, the food was ready quickly, the burgers were good and my wine was delicious- even from the plastic cup. A nice dinner that we ate lakeside.More

Delish food, good drinks, cozy atmosphere, good safety/cleanliness measures in place for COVID, but no overkill! Will definitely visit again!

It's very unusual that I write a negative review BUT my husband and I ordered "curbside" pick-up for dinner on Jan 12th, around 3:30pm, not a busy time of day. My husband even confirmed on the phone that they will bring the food out to...the car, "Yes, we will bring it out to you". We told them what our make/model of car is and she said "I'll watch for you"....it would be 15-20 min. We parked in the curbside/take out area, as guided by a sign and waited. Half an hour later, after sitting in parking lot about 20 min, my husband called them and they said our order was there waiting for us. My husband said we were waiting for it to be brought out to us and she said no, they aren't bringing it out, we would have to go in. Since we had already paid, my husband went in to get it BUT if we hadn't of paid we would have just left. Do NOT advertise curbside when you have no intention of bringing the food out. That being said......food tasted very good, even though they forgot to give tartar sauce with the fish sandwich and I got sick about 2 hours after eating the sandwich and crab soup. We will not be returning.More

They had one of our favorite Maryland wines. They offered really good bread with honey butter. The mushroom caps were good. The prime rib and 8oz steak were delicious. The Cicken Oscar was also excellent. My son said this pine wood burger was good. My...son also said the chocolate cake was good. We told them when we made the reservation that it was my birthday however nothing happened.More

My experiences with the Pine Lodge has been mixed as of late. I think they only have one wait staff, and she is wonderful, but the food has been mediocre which is unacceptable given the inflated prices. On my most recent visit I had the...fish sandwich and it was drier than Clark Griswold's Christmas turkey! The sanitizer they had out for customers was EMPTY. You would think with COVID a restaurant would do more to ensure the health and safety of their customers.More
