I didnt go in with high expectations but even my low expectations weren't met. I had a chicken sandwhich that was so dry I could barely chew it. My kids chicken fingers were so burnt they refused to eat them and my tea was just nasty. After walking 1.2 miles and 600+ steps to get here I'd hope the food... More

We ate lunch, having gotten pretty hungry from lotsa walking around. They had a lunch buffet which was very well stocked, but we resisted the temptation. Our minestrone & salads with roast chicken breast were very tasty and fresh. I did grab 2-3 small desserts from the buffet with our coffees and the nice waitress tole me not to worry... More

We have been visiting Amicalola Falls Restaurant for several years. I would recommend it to anyone. The food is always good and the view from the restaurant is beautiful.

We come here in the fall for a day trip from Atlanta. We fit in lunch here between Burt's Pumpkin Patch and BJ Reece's Apple Orchard. The food is fine, and we have always gotten tables by the window to enjoy the mountain view. As an added bonus, the first time we came, there was an educational bird show outside... More

We've camped in the Chattahoochee National Forest just outside of Amicalola State Park multiple times and usually stop by the state park lodge to pick up firewood or snacks. We'd taken note of The Maple Restaurant at the lodge before but never took the time to eat there as we were usually in a hurry to get out to the... More

The lodge was undergoing some renovations, so there were limited rooms and services. The restaurant also seemed to be limited in service. To start, this was apparently a "special occasion" menu. It was a buffet. I like a buffet - try a little of everything and get as much of something as you like. We started with and liked the... More

The service was indifferent, the buffet food had clearly been out too long - cucumbers starting to rot in the large salad, fruit flies lingering, the meats were overcooked and dry. If we hadn't been on top of a mountain we would have gone somewhere else to eat. The view from the dining room is stunning, but the food is... More

We had dinner, breakfast, and Sunday brunch. All were very good. Service was excellent, Katie is a great waitress, and the manager stopped by our table and spoke with us.

Enjoyed the food, fresh and reasonably priced. Service was good and the view was fantastic. Not too many people there. A must see if you like the not well travelled places.
