Average quality food compared to the rest of the peninsula. Good bar selection. Service was a little show, but we enjoyed sitting by the large windows and watching the lake.

The Salmon House is .75 mile from the Quinault Lodge. It sits on Lake Quinault and has a gorgeous view. My wife and I had had broiled salmon and steak for our entrees along with a bottle of cabernet merlot. Both of our meals were cooked perfectly and were delicious. The meals came with a choice of rice/potato and vegetable.... More

We weren't expecting much from this restaurant but we were actually surprised at how good the food tasted. I had the chicken parm and it was perhaps one of the best chicken parm dishes I've had. My husband had broiled salmon and loved every bite. Our waitress, Jen, was friendly and efficient. She is also the dessert maker at the... More

This was our second and probably last meal at the salmon house. When we arrived, the entire main dining room was occupied by a writers conference. Approximately sixty percent of the table space is in this room, with the remainder of the restaurant meandering around on a lower level. This conference was obviously an event which had been booked in... More

Our group of 5 came in on a busy weekend evening, and the service was excellent despite a packed house. Three of us got the Cajun spiced salmon and none of us regretted it! So delicious. The desserts had been made by our server, and she did a fantastic job as well. Must stop here if you're looking for a... More

Though the interior is stuck in the early 80s, the food was first rate. It is directly lakeside with plenty of large windows, plus a small outside deck. Limited menu with local fare plus a few steak choices and "bar" food also. It has a small, but fresh salad bar. The wait staff was very attentive and pricing is appropriate.

A little pricey but the food was great! I think we had our best meal of our two week trip here - the salmon was outstanding!

We ate here after hiking all day and wanting an early dinner. Husband and I shared the seafood dinner for two and it was delicious. The kids had a cheeseburger know a cheeseburger kids meal which was more like the size of a regular meal and had great flavor. Waitress was awesome and had a full house to handle all... More
