Could be better

At noon on a weekday and no A La Carte menu to order off of. There was a buffet but not interested by what was on it. Was able to talk to Cathy, DR manager, and she was kind enough to arrange an order off the menu for me, food good, service could be better. Thanks to Cathy and Amanda... read more

The food was fine for the price. However, we waited a ridiculously long time to even be approached by a server after we sat down. Then our party of 9 ordered off the menu for dinner instead of getting the buffet. It took forever, and mind you the dining room was pretty empty - maybe a quarter to a third... More

We were at the lodge for an overnight stay and hiking with our grandson. We've been here a couple of times before, and have really liked the buffet in the past, but this time it fell short of our expectations. Our first meal was lunch, where one of us had the buffet, the other a spinach salad. The salad had... More

We ride our motorcycle in the area very often and eat at the restaurant several times a year. Holiday celebrations are the best. The staff is friendly and professional. Our favorite server is Joe. He gives excellent service and we ask to sit in his section whenever possible. Joe is a great guy. We look forward to his attentive manner... More

This is a typical hotel chain breakfast with dry scramble eggs and hard biscuits. Many guests made their own waffles but we stuck to the bacon, O'brien potatoes, and cereal. The coffee was excellent as was the staff.

On our first night at the lodge for dinner, we had one person in our party with a gluten allergy. Chef Brittany (spelling?) came out personally to talk to us and said she could accommodate this and asked some insightful questions. She came out later to check on a few ingredients and made sure these were okay. What attentiveness! Our... More

Had brunch here while visiting the area and it was very nice. Lots of choices from breakfast fare or more like lunch stuff. The staff is friendly and prompt. The views from the window seats or go out on the patio after eating are relaxing to look at too and add to the ambiance of the lodge.

I believe good customer service can help salvage bad food. But when you have bad customer service and bad food it's hard to come up with a positive. In fact it's almost impossible. So here goes the positive, the iced tea was perfect and the salad was above average as 95% of the components were fresh. The view was stunning... More

The first night that we stayed at the lodge, we decided to eat at the dinner buffet that had been advertised to us. My stepfather really enjoyed it, but my mother and I did not. We ended up ordering from the regular menu afterward, and that made up for my experience with the buffet. We decided to give the buffet... More

My friends and I visited Golf Club Villas at Big Canoe this weekend. While riding through the area for things to do we stumbled across Amicalola Falls State Park. The falls were absolutely beautiful! We were even more pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the top of the falls to learn there was a restaurant. The view and food were... More
