The waitresses were very pleasant. However our meals took over an hour to arrive with only 2 parties in the dining hall. The meals did not arrive at the same time either so in order to be polite some of us ate our meals cold. Of the three people who ordered burgers no ones was cooked correctly. Mine was over cook and the others were very undercooked. They actually forgot to make my girlfriends burger which then took another 20 minuets to get to the table undercooked. 2 stars are for the waitresses who were very nice and very apologetic.
The staff is made up of the most wonderful people who serve excellent local drinks, and delicious food, at reasonable prices. Be sure to go when there is live music for an extra special treat :)
We have a cabin on Ambajesus Lake and The Big Moose is our go-to restaurant. The food is great and the service is remarkable. Has been and always will be our favorite restaurant
My wife and I stayed at the Big Moose Inn for 3 nights while visiting Baxter State Park. The Inn is quite nice and the rooms are just fine for this remote area. Even had a small refrigerator that I was not expecting. The Inn has a nice lobby and a large screened in porch to enjoy as well as a couple of hidden porches to relax. The Wi-fi is really only available in the hotel lobby as the signal drops off quickly as you venture beyond and the connection speed is slower than dial-up 25 years ago. A bit unacceptable if you are going to advertise wi-fi. Young kids of the workers are jumping from couch to couch in the lobby! We ate dinner twice at this inn. The food was good, but the service and time to bring your order are unacceptable. The first night we ate in the dining room and the waitress did just fine while juggling us and the bar area, but the cook time was awful. The next night we ate in the bar and it took 1.5 hours to get a burger and lobster mac and cheese and we were one of the first ones in the bar. The waitress was completely inattentive the whole time. Needless to say the tip was zero this evening and we got a pizza from the convenience store next door for the third night...good pizza!
Food was good (basic American fare) but service was slow and inattentive even though it was not busy at 7 pm when we arrived. We ended up driving into town for the next two nights instead of sitting for two hours waiting for our main course.
