Attentive staff, good food

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... read 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

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
