COP Jackson Lake Menu

Jackson Lake, with Mt. Moran (sometimes misidentified as Grand Teton) in the background, appears on the cover of this July, 1970 dinner menu marked for the City of Portland. The colorful boats in the water add to the picture of this being a recreation area for more than just mountain climbers.

The table d’hôte menu features broiled salmon, roast turkey, and grilled ham steak, all for just under $4 (close to $24 today). As usual, there is also the Union Pacific’s charcoal broiled sirloin steak dinner for $5.50 (close to $33 today). The other side of the menu also has three “dinner specialties”: chopped beef steak; clubhouse sandwich; and chef’s salad.

Curiously, the a la carte menu has no entrées, just juices, vegetables, fruit or chicken salads, desserts, and beverages. Since most of those come with the other meals, it is hard to imagine anyone ordering anything from the a la carte menu except possibly the one of the salads.
