We were staying at the Inn for a conference. We made the mistake of not having reservations, so we had to come back when they had an available time.
We had a delicious meal with outstanding service. We dined on prime rib, sirloin, baked potatoes, and Caesar salad. The caesar dressing was a little too heavy on the anchovies, but I can forgive that because my prime rib was so spot on incredible. We also saved room for lavender creme brûlée. It was a superb finish to our meal.

Beautiful setting at the Inn of the Mountain Gods. Service was prompt. We had reservations for a concert and wanted to have dinner before so time was important. Our waiter took appropriate note of that and made sure we had ample time to enjoy dinner and still make the concert leisurely. Its somewhat pricey but not unexpected due to its location. The steak (filet) was prepared exactly as ordered and was of very good quality. Also of note, the Martinis were exceptional. Reservations are important and still plan on plenty of time to enjoy the ambiance and outside surroundings. It's worth the time as long as you have it.

This restaurant was named after a former chief and the decor and atmosphere was wonderful. It is located on a lower level of the main facility and had wonderful views of the lake. Depending on when you are there the sun might be a little in your face, but nothing bad.

We had elk for the appetizer and it was divine! All of the food was wonderful. I would definitely recommend anything on the plate.

Service was very good, you did wait a slight amount of time, I think that the kitchen was centralized in the middle so that they can get food out to the lounge or the restaurant.

We had reservations for 8:30 and didn't actually sit down at our table until after 9:00. Our expectations were high as the menu is pretty expensive. We were so disappointed in both the food and service. Food did not hit our table until after 11:00 pm. No one's steaks were cooked properly. The waitress blamed the new cook for the slow service. The green chile mac n cheese was the highlight of the evening but it did not make up for the rest of our experience.

We chose Wendall's for dinner against my better judgment and I wish we'd spent our money elsewhere. Their dinner offerings are all overpriced and the lamb was not cooked correctly. Request was for medium rare and what we received was over cooked with no red to be seen. Soup was watery and bland. Wedge salad was lacking dressing and had just a handful of bacon pieces sprinkled on top. On the plus side we had a very pleasant and attentive waitress, drinks were delicious and the views were gorgeous!!
