This is our 1st trip back since 2007.

This isn't an area of fine dining or gourmet food, as other threads have stated. But having had a lot of mediocre to bad food throughout the years, we've had a couple of pleasant surprises so far this trip.

The menu at the Tiger Bar/Cafe advertises homemade pie. I gave it a try with low hopes & it was excellent. Tried the cherry & the peach over 2 days. The crust was perfect. Nice & flaky, not gluey or soggy. The cherry pie was a nice mix of tart & sweet, & the peach pie had nice chucks of fruit. I'm usually disappointed by pie - my mom sets the bar high - but I will be remembering this pie fondly, the cherry in particular.

I will be interested in trying the made-from-scratch Bloody Mary if we return there this trip.

Also had lunch at the Silver Lake Resort, again with lower expectations. I had a grilled turkey, pepper jack, & jalapeno sandwich on sliced sourdough with fries. It was very good, as grill/cafe food goes. Hot off the grill & quite tasty. Paired it with a Real McCoy from Mammoth Brewing Co. & I was one very happy customer. We heard from some other customers that this is the last weekend before they close for the winter.

Again, this isn't gourmet food, but since I'm always happy when my food doesn't land in the mediocre to bad category on trips such as this (as the restaurant at the Double Eagle has, more than once, in past years), I thought I would post.
