The dining room at The Loon Lodge Inn

Indulge in a variety of dishes, served in a casual and intimate setting for you and your guests. Experience dining that reaches far beyond just food & drink. The Loon Lodge Restaurant specializes in New American Cuisine, prepared with the freshest ingredients (seasonally available) from local growers.

Begin your meal with a choice from our Wine & Spirits.  We offer a meticulously chosen wine list, an extensive cocktail menu and an excellent selection of locally-brewed and national brand beers to begin your evening as our guest.  Our wine & spirits menu is available in both our restaurant and the Pickford Pub. 

All of our food is crafted from scratch.  We use locally sourced proteins and produce; natural and organic when available.  Our steaks are hand cut and our burgers are our own fresh grind of steak, grilled on our apple wood fired grill.  

You’ll find no better choice in the Rangeley area.  

See our menu below for both our dining room and The Pickford Pub. Make sure to leave room for our delicious and renowned desserts. 

We promise you that our professional staff and attention to detail will make your evening with us memorable.  

Dinner is served Tuesday-Saturday from 5-9PM. Reservations* are strongly suggested for the dining room.

"The Loon Lodge dining experience surpassed all expectations! My husband and I split an order of the lamb chops and the mushroom risotto,
and both were fantastic.
The lamb chops were seasoned and cooked to perfection and came with an incredibly flavorful mint sauce that complemented the meat so well. The veggies were also delicious (likely coated in butter) and I appreciated the spices chosen to season the carrots.
The risotto was creamy and the right texture. I appreciated the assortment of mushrooms, tomatoes, and spinach cooked into it.
Finally, we ended on a slice of key lime pie (also perfect)! And shared a warm chocolate bread pudding with his sister and her husband.
(Pro tip: ask for vanilla ice cream with the chocolate bread pudding instead of the default chocolate).
Service was also A+! The server made us feel really welcome and she did a great job accommodating our 4-year-old nephew and 2-year-old niece."

"The Pickford Pub was a perfect Rangeley experience. Sue and her staff are amazing, their goal is to treat you well and to make sure you had the best dining experience possible. We started with a specialty cocktail with muddled blueberries. For the appetizer we had the calamari and for dinner the haddock and shrimp! Thank you again, five stars for service and food."

This was a Phenomenal staycation. All of the staff were friendly and helpful. The food was five star quality. In speaking with the chef we told him how wonderful the food was, his first response was giving credit to all of the kitchen staff. He said he had phenomenal kitchen staff and could not do it without them. The rooms were very nice and very clean. The view from our room was spectacular, looking right out of window to Rangeley Lake.
When we spoke with the manager, I told her how well-run the lodge seemed. Again her first response was giving all of the credit to the staff. My wife and I have not had a vacation for quite a while and could not have asked for a better experience. There are many things to do and places to go. My wife and I do want to recognize our bartender and server Mercedes. My wife says she was incredible and I agree. Our heartfelt thanks to all the staff that made our vacation so memorable.

We had a great stay at Loon Lodge Inn. The room was cozy & clean. The staff is friendly, conscientious & TEAM oriented (wonderful to see them all having each others' back when it got busy). The location is ideal for a weekend of Saddleback skiing...(or snow-sledding or whatever floats your boat)!
Beautiful property. I can only imagine how beautiful it is in summer. Nice to see the history of the region preserved in this way.
Thanks for a great stay.

We loved our stay at Loon Lodge! Super convenient for skiing at Saddleback. The place was very clean and cozy and the staff was kind, welcoming and helpful with information about the area. The warm fireplace and hot cocoa was the perfect thing to come home to after a day of skiing. Great Maine micro-brews on tap at the pub. We look forward to staying again soon!
