The view from the dining room is excellent and the park itself is very nice. We ordered a salad due to the time (a "designer" salad) and it was good. Wait staff short staffed but polite.

Amacollola Falls park offers 5 star outdoor views. HOWEVER; the new contractor drops the ball for the Lodge ' s Maple Restaurant with its spectacular panoramic view of mountain ranges. Great variety for Breakfast but execution lacking: waffle grill does not signal when done, very slow (only 1 for whole restaurant), not clean (black flecks in my burned waffle), and... More

This was our second trip and we were disappointed. The restaurant was less than half full but not enough wait staff. We each ordered a salad and hubby added a quesadillo made with grilled veggies and I added a baked potato and side of grilled veggies. The salads were smaller than last time and did not have all the ingredients... More

Amicalola Falls and the State Park are beautiful, the Lodge restaurant has magnificent long range mountain views. The buffet is the quality equivalent of a Golden Corral. Enjoy the views from the restaurant, have the buffet because its there.

I was part of 35-person group, so that is a particular challenge and so my experience may not be representative. I found the food to be mediocre...adequate, but nothing to write home about. Generally, the food was overcooked and under-spiced. The salmon was particularly disappointing. The spanicopita was particularly good. Vegetarian choices were very limited. The views are world class.... More

This is a very nice lodge with a nice restaurant. The restaurant has a fantastic view of the mountains. The service was friendly and the food was good. The lunch buffet was $12.95. They also had a nice selection of sandwiches and salads on the menu.

We had the misfortune of eating the buffet at the place yesterday. I really did not want to pay that horrible price of $16.95, drink nor included, but we went ahead. The buffet was very small and not much choses. The red potatoes were so over done they were like mush, the so called prime rib waas like think slices... More

Stopped here for a late lunch after climbing the stairs to the top of the falls. The setting is nice, and the view from the restaurant is beautiful. However, the food is just okay (very marginal), and staff varied from disengaged to gruff. On Sunday there is a buffet until 3:00pm, and menu service afterwards. We got there about 2:45... More

Love coming to the falls. The food at the lodge isn't anything to write home about. My waitress was fine...all she did was bring me a glass of water. Buffet style. Very little to choose from. Chicken was WAY over fried. This was my second time here and I guess I was hoping the food had gotten better. The view... More
