Cordero Lodge


Dining room at Camp Cordero, as it's affectionately known to local residents, is more than just a place to eat. The interior of the restaurant is substantial and welcoming. Yacht club burgers and mementos, gifts left by visitors from all over the world, adorn the warm varnished beams and paneling. A wood-burning stove knocks the bite out of chilly nights and a piano stands ready for impromptu songfests. When the mood is right Reinhardt has been known to make the rounds with ice-cold schnapps, introduced by a hearty rendition of the traditional German toast, "Ein Prosit, Ein Prosit, der Gemutlichkeit." As for the food, Doris's authentic German fare is a superb capper to a day of boating or trout & salmon fishing. Cordero Fishing Lodge is fully licensed, offering a full bar and an extensive wine list. Liqueur coffees are a specialty of the house and, as if calories were nonexistent, Doris turns out surprise desserts ranging from cheesecakes and strudels to Schwarzwalder Torte with apparent ease.
