This restaurant is not what you would expect in a National Park. After a day of hiking in the falls, we went to the mountain top to see the gift shop and restaurant. Much to our surprise the place was a beautiful, extremely clean facility with breath=taking views. We were seated immediately on New Years Days and had a wonderful... More

The service is never what I expect, even for a buffet. The food needs to be replenished more often---sometimes trays are empty or not refilled soon enough. The wait staff needs to explain to folks what the procedure is. We brought a large church group in WITH a reservation, and still waited for 25 minutes to be seated. No one... More

I have eaten here many times, but not for awhile. Have always had the lunch buffet - it was wonderful in the past. Didn't check it out, just went for it - what a disappointment! The soups were ok, the salad bar not restocked, and the main course selections were awful! I had the short ribs - smelled great, but... More

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
