If you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, or Valentine’s Day, book a reservation at The Lakefront Restaurant. This tiny 10-table establishment is located inside the historic Tamarack Lodge overlooking Twin Lakes. To say this place is intimate would be an understatement. As you walk to your table, you’ll notice the wood-paneled walls and all the white tablecloths, with each table positioned for ideal views (don’t be surprised if you see a bear wandering by during your meal). The menu is filled with dishes that use sustainable and locally-sourced ingredients, like birria-braised short rib in hoja santa or pan-roasted Columbian River red trout. On Thursday and Friday evenings, there’s often live jazz happening in the lobby, where you can hang out and order a glass of wine from their big, Napa-focused list.
