The Sportsman's Lodge - how's the food?

This place is a trip. Has anyone eaten here?

It’s on the corner of Ventura and Coldwater Canyon in Studio City. I met a buddy there for a beer the other night.

They have ponds in the back with lots of large koi and other fish. Then there are the swans, both black and white, that lazily float on the ponds. There are waterfalls flowing into the ponds and bridges on which you can walk to look at the swans and fish.

If you walk outside (which we did since we parked in the back) you can really smell the water. It’s not a bad smell, just the smell of water with algae in it. It’s kind of like you’re out in nature, right there in the valley.

There is also an area that looks like you can have a wedding there.

The restaurant and bar look out over the ponds. The bar is kind of woodsy. When we went, there were a couple of guys watching the baseball game on TV.

How’s the food?
