We got game

Our 100+ Year old Log Cabin is a comfortable yet refined setting for succulent wild game including Elk, Bison, Venison, Pheasant, Antelope, Duck and Quail. 

We don’t stop at game.  Seafood and steaks play a big part in our menu presentation. Highlights include, Cowboy Beef Ribeye, Cold Water Lobster, Jumbo Lump Crab, Snapper, Trout, Lobster and of course, Gulf Shrimp.

Two onsite kitchen gardens and a small citrus orchard help complete our menu which is inspired by our seasonal harvest, local ranches and growers.

Private Events

Our Elegant Log Cabin has 4 private rooms for groups of 8 to 80…or think big..... consider the entire Lodge for your group of 100 or more.
