Rainbow Lodge
Romantic log cabin American eatery
American · Heights · $$$
The Zagat Review
Between the “amazing” decor (taxidermied hunting trophies, old rifles, etc.), the “beautiful” log cabin setting on the banks of a bayou and the “delicious” game-centered menu, it’s no wonder this Heights New American is a “classic dining experience” ; it’s perfect for a “romantic date night” , and “on a nice day, you can’t beat the deck” ; P.S. lunch, Sunday brunch and bar menus offer less expensive dining options.

Probably the most professional dining experience ever. The food, decor, and service were beyond expectations as I held a private wedding dinner party here. They gave us a private room, intimate attention, and a wonderful host, Brian. I chose this place because they are on every top 10 list of romantic Dining in Houston. I would put them at #1. So grateful for choosing this place for our wedding dinner.

One of my favorite places to find the sort of food my mother cooked while I was growing up. Last time I was there I enjoyed some quail and red wine while I visited with a friend. Delicious.

The food was great, we had the mixed game appetizers and main course. I particularly liked the fried rabbit on blue grits. Desserts were lovely, service was good, interior very nice even though we weren't lucky enough to be seated in the log wall part of the lodge. Only reason they don't get a 5 is because of the wretchedly tiny forced valet parking lane. We had to park our full size truck across the street and dodge traffic to get to dinner.
