Pool Bar for Lunch

Evergreen’s Main Lodge is where you’ll find breakfast, lunch, and dinner in a variety of settings. Choose from a cozy dining room, an old-west front porch, a classic tavern or an open-air covered and heated patio overlooking the main plaza and surrounding woods. Our classic mountain cuisine with a California twist tastes great no matter where you choose to dine!

NOTE: menus are subject to change based on seasonality and availability of ingredients, but are always delicious!

Get your day started with our scrumptious full-service breakfast and a freshly brewed cup of local roaster Milone Coffee & Tea’s coffee available in the main dining room. We’ve got everything from Fresh Buttermilk Pancakes to Steelhead Trout Gravlax. Check out our full breakfast menu. You can also book a Bed & Breakfast package for convenience and value.

If you’re in more of a rush, you can just pop into our General Store for latte’s, freshly made breakfast items, and trail supplies.


Lunch served 12:00pm – 3:00pm daily.

Lunch is available in the tavern and open-air covered patio (seasonally). Whether you want to keep it light and simple with a homemade Caesar salad or try something new and hearty like our House Made Elk Chili, you will find something to satisfy every taste on our lunch menu. Make sure to direct your little adventurer to our Kids Menu, sure to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters for lunch and dinner!

Seasonally, lunch and snacks are also served at our Pool Bar. Our Poolside menu offers plenty of options for adults and kids alike, including Mojo Shrimp, Wild Mushroom Flatbread, and Pulled Pork Sliders. Naturally, we round it out with a fun poolside drink menu featuring everything from Cucumber Basil Mojitos to draft seasonal beer and non-alcoholic Mango Refreshers.

Dinner at the Evergreen is available in the main dining room, tavern, open-air covered patio, and seasonally on the lodge front porch. Crowd pleasers such as burgers, steaks, and seafood share the stage with some of the Chef’s innovative seasonal items. Our wine list focuses on affordable yet superb wines from California as well as select choices from other areas of the world. Many wines are available by the glass and our reserve list is strong enough to satisfy more demanding palates.

To give you the full flavor of what’s available here is our dinner menu and our specialty drink menu. We also have a dynamic kid’s menu that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters.

Dinner reservations are available for any amount of guests and highly encouraged for parties of 8 or more. You may make your reservation in person at the front desk, by phone at (209)379-2606 or by email at [email protected]. Dinner is generally busiest around 7 pm, though wait times can vary.  If you would like to dine in our outdoor dining patio, we recommend checking in with the host stand at least 20 minutes before you would like to have dinner in case there is a wait.

Summer in the Sierra Nevada is not complete without a friendly barbecue, and it’s even more fun barbecuing at Evergreen’s Pool Bar. Our poolside barbecue includes timeless classics like grilled-to-order Angus Burgers, Grilled Salmon, Flat Iron Steak, and Jamaican Jerk Chicken. Our summer barbecue menus rotate nightly between themes such as  Southwest BBQ and Caribbean BBQ so you always have something new to try throughout your stay.

Adding to the fun, our custom-crafted Evergreen Lodge libations are available during the barbecue – see our poolside drink menu for details.
