5 Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence
With our stomachs rumbling, it was time to head to dinner at the Shore Lodge. There are several options for dining at this classic lodge – The Narrows, The Narrows Grill, and the Lake Grill. If you’re looking for very fine dining, The Narrows is the way to go. They’ve been awarded with FIVE Wine Spectator Awards of Excellence. For tonight, we are feeling something a bit more low key. The Narrows Grill is perfect for us as it serves a great menu but in a bar setting.
High Class Lodging That’s Accessible
As you step into the lodge, there is a sense of prestige but without the pompous attitude. The interior is decorated with taxidermy mounts, leather couches and fireplaces, and the staff is attentive and high caliber. This focus on service and attention to detail are proven by being rated as the 3rd Best Resort in the Western US by Conde Nast Traveler. Walking past the front desk and into The Narrows Grill, we sit down at the bar ordering beers and some food.
Cajun Venison Dumplings Are A Must Try
Of course you can try the burger, but when on a journey, we look for things that we can’t have anywhere else. Immediately, the Cajun Venison dumplings peaked our interest. The dish came out in a large bowl filled with chunks of venison that you would see from a pot roast. The sauce and meat had spicy Cajun seasoning with no hint of game taste at all. The house made dumplings were dense yet creamy and matched perfectly with the large pieces of venison. It was a classic hearty dish perfect for a cold evening. If looking for a lighter fare, the Idaho blackened trout tacos are also insanely good.
