Mediocre at Best!

You never know what the quality of food will be. The service if you are lucky enough to get one of the veterans that have been there for awhile will be very good. The food has a lot to be desired.

This past Saturday a friend and myself decided to have a late lunch at The Maple Room at Amicalola Falls Lodge. We were seated at the far corner of the dining room along the windows at a 4 top. Since the view is what we came for we rotated the table 90 degrees and both faced out of the window.... More

We spent a weekend at Amicalola Falls and had 2 meals at the Maple Restaurant. We enjoyed breakfast because of the omelet station and make your own waffles. However, dinner was not as good. The only "vegetables" was the salad bar. They did offer eggplant parmesan and spinach and mushroom lasagna. They dessert bar needed some attention. Someone had made... More

I always take TripAdvisor reviews with a grain of salt, as sometimes you have sudden "culinary experts" popping up from the woodwork. Like many mentioned here, my friend and I took advantage of a GroupOn offer posted by the lodge, which included a $15 voucher to dine in the lodge at their "The Maple Leaf Restaurant." We had an amazing... More

We stayed at the lodge for three nights and had the $15 voucher so we ate at the restaurant several times since it basically made the meals half price. While we were there, we were told the buffet is done during the busy times otherwise, they can't keep up with the food service. So, in a way, I think we... More

My husband and I walked the 'Stairs of Death' as I dubbed them, and then walked up yet another trail to visit the lodge here, intent on having a delicious brunch with an incredible view. One of those things was totally spot on. Can you guess which? The Sunday Buffet is $20 per person, without the drink included. Our total... More

My husband and I stayed at the lodge for three nights & had a $15 voucher for the restaurant as a part of our Groupon. The first night we tried the dinner buffet which was $16.95 a person (drinks not included). They had a good variety from the listing, but the food just tasted like cafeteria food (dried out pork,...

Lunch was average, but they serve wine and beer! The spareribs were terrible, the salad with cranberries was average, but the fried green bean appetizer was very good----our group did eat other items, but honestly can't remember???? Chocolate cake dessert was okay. If you go, take a walk for the view. It was a dreary day, so there was no... More

We took 3 meals here while we stayed at the lodge. The dining room is beautiful and offers a great mountain view no matter where you sit. Each meal was a buffet. I'd say breakfast was the best value. Lunch and dinner are definitely overpriced for the offering but leaving the lodge for meals would be terribly inconvenient. The entire... More

We were able to have breakfast, lunch and dinner at this restaurant because we stayed at the lodge for 3 days. The best meal was lunch because we got there as it started at 11:30 am. Fresh food, all the desserts were there and the restaurant was not full. Megan helped us out two of the three times and she... More
