Entering The Lodge with its beautiful portico entrance with the waterfall at your back is a lovely experience, but it is the timeless beauty of the Olympic Room, the social hub and centerpiece of “living at the Lodge” that sets this community apart from other retirement centers. This dining room is warm and comfortable with tall native timbers and huge picture windows that look out at the Olympic Mountains.
The residents and guests of The Lodge order from a restaurant-style menu and are served table side by experienced waitstaff. The Olympic Room is a unique dining venue and with a reservation 24 hours in advance, diners from the local community are welcome. It has become a restaurant of choice for that special evening out. It’s no wonder – with a dinner menu that includes everything from pastas, stir-fries, and garlic prawns to specially prepared free-range chicken, filet mignon and a daily special, it is a truly unique experience. Recent daily specials have included Tilapia, crab cakes and trout. One of the local newspapers recently named the salad bar the best on the Peninsula.
In addition to the main courses mentioned above, all of the soups and baked goods are made in house. The beef is all-natural beef from Misty Isle Farms, the chicken is free range and the produce is organic and local when available. Breakfast and lunch are menu service with daily specials, and breakfast includes special-order omelets, eggs to order, bacon, sausage, French toast and more. Lunch service includes the famous Lodge Reuben, tuna melts, chicken sandwiches, and burgers including a garden burger. The Lodge kitchen can also accommodate a vegetarian diet. Snacks, juices, fresh fruits, coffee, tea, and baked goods are also available.
