Lodging guests enjoy dinner at the Lodge on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday evenings from 5:30 to 8:00 under the guiding hand of Chef Dennis Bortis. Like the home cooks on the Fox hit show “Master Chef”, Dennis is self taught and after cooking for more than seven years at the Lodge has perfected his culinary skills at breakfast and dinner to a real art. He takes great pride in every dish from his Signature Lobster Mac and Cheese to his perfectly grilled beef filet with carmelized cauliflower and capers.
We are delighted to announce the addition of Chef Erin Hall to our Lodge team for the 2018 season. Erin, her husband Matt and two children have moved to the Moosehead Lake area from Oxford, Maine where she was Executive Chef at the Severance Lodge Club in Lovell and has owned and operated her own restaurant for many years. At the Lodge, Erin will be responsible for breakfast and dinner service for our lodging guests as well as the many food requirements for the Lodge’s unique and custom adventure packages.
At our Country Inn and Lodge, you can embrace satisfying Up North Cuisine – hot, hearty and filling. Our Chefs blends the best available local and statewide dairy, produce and meats that Maine offers always with an eye for presentation, one dish at a time.
