We were favorably impressed by the lodge restaurant. The view was outstanding. The service was friendly and attentive while the food was really good. I recommend the Rueben. Might be the best I've ever had.

Casual Dining at it's finest. Relax while you take in the beautiful views of Lake Hope as you sip on a glass of wine or enjoy a craft brew. Everything is made from scratch utilizing as many locally sourced products as we can get our hands on. Enjoy the full flavor of our all-hickory smoked real pit BBQ, wood fried pizza, hand cut steaks and burgers made of only the freshest beef ground in-house daily! Come out for our famous Sunday Brunch. Every Sunday from 10 am - 2 pm you can enjoy a little bit of all that's good here at Lake Hope. Everything from scrambled eggs, buttermilk biscuits and Lodge sausage gravy to three cheese au gratin potatoes, smoked brisket, pulled pork and so much more! You don't know what you're missing until you try it.
