Secret Supper Club

Chef Dylan loves to get creative and come up with inventive, new menus. Now with our Secret Supper Club, he'll partner with a winemaker for a few small, intimate dinners by invitation only. These special dinners will include a featured winemaker to talk about their wines and give you a personal insight into their passion and what makes them so great. But, you need to get "in-the-know" because you won't see them published on our website. To get your secret invitation, please e-mail us at BarkingFrogEvents@willowslodge.com to request information on our upcoming Secret Suppers.

Wine Lovers, Rejoice!

We’re known for our phenomenal wine list, which highlights the world-acclaimed wines of the Northwest. Our cellar is deep in stellar wines from Washington state growers.

Our sommelier is exceptional at pairing wines to our food and your tastes—no pretense, just knowledgeable suggestions and a passion for sharing great finds. We are proud to have received Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence for seven consecutive years.

We will gladly open your personal bottle of wine for $35 per bottle. Please limit your corkage to two 750ml bottles (or one 1.5L) per party.

Where Frogs Bark

Barking Frog is named after the Native American use of the frog as a symbol of abundance. Storytellers say, when frogs bark, it’s a sign of peace and harmony – our wish for every guest who walks through the door. A large circular table surrounds a fireplace where guests gather all year round for a meal or one of our special Winemaker Dinners.
