Well known and loved for gulf fish, wild game, steaks and chops, Rainbow Lodge features lunch, dinner & Sunday brunch. Owner Donnette Hansen's attention to detail is reflected in everything from the comfortable log cabin setting & landscaped grounds to the seasonally changing menus. Insider's tip: go for the business lunch ($15 for three courses). Sophisticated but not stuffy! Menu hits include elk chops, grilled buffalo tenderloin, Lodge smoked duck gumbo. Veteran chefs prepare gulf fish, wild boar, duck, quail, elk and beef. With 3,000 square feet of kitchen gardens, the Lodge grows vegetables and herbs to complete special dishes. Brunch enthusiasts enjoy casual patio dining with $2 mimosas. Sunday Suppers feature half price wines by the glass. Live Music Fridays in the bar.

    We attended Easter Brunch, 3 courses for $60. Food was excellent, great assortment and unique flavor profiles. Right sized portions and professional waiters with just the right amount of attention.

    Well I get that it’s a game lodge but on Easter Sunday I was expecting at least one traditional brunch dish. Like plain eggs Benedict or quiche or pancakes but never mind, they did a bang up job presenting every dish with a hat tip to the hunter. Our waiter was outstanding!

    Excellent food, friendly service, interesting decor with the wood cabin look, fireplace, and animal heads all over. Thoroughly enjoyed our evening, and would go back if we lived in Houston, to try more of their game dishes.

    We dined outside on the very nice patio with a pleasant view. None of us was especially impressed with our entrees. The rave reviews came from the vanilla ice cream that accompanied the bread pudding.
