Eating at this restaurant was an unexpected pleasure on both nights of our stay. The menu was interesting and tasty. We were very impressed with the chef Chris who made sure that my husband could enjoy a gluten-free option for every course.

Our party of five had the most amazing meals at the McCarthy Lodge Bistro. I've traveled the world and eaten in many fine dining establishments so I wasn't really expecting this to compare. Our whole party was blown away by the amazing food we experienced....More
