We had dinner, breakfast, and Sunday brunch. All were very good. Service was excellent, Katie is a great waitress, and the manager stopped by our table and spoke with us.

Enjoyed the food, fresh and reasonably priced. Service was good and the view was fantastic. Not too many people there. A must see if you like the not well travelled places.

We ate here twice as we were staying at the lodge. Usually restaurants in remote areas attached to park lodges are expensive and poor quality - this one broke those rules. The menu was limited although that may have been due to time of year and renovations currently underway. I got the impression they normally served a buffet. Between us... More

Unless management has changed the food served here was just average. Felt it could have been better.

We stayed with our Church group and ate Breakfast here two nights and I have to say that while the food LOOKED great, it was very poor. It was breakfast buffet and they had a very nice selection of eggs, sausage, pancakes, bacon, potatoes, biscuits and fruit (cereal was on the other side too) and there was OJ on the... More

We were pleasantly surprised by the restaurant and lodge at the top of Amicola falls. We had no idea when we drove in for our hike that there was a restaurant at the top. We were greeted at the door by Ken who was very friendly and told us about the lodge and the renovations it's currently under. We decided... More

The expansive views are worth the trip to the Lodge but the food will please you as well. There is a buffet that will sustain you for the long hikes that are available from the park. Make the travel up to see the rooms that are under renovation in July 2014 so they should be in great shape for years... More

We were a group of 4 adults and 5 teenagers. Decided to have an early dinner here as the menu looked pretty good and prices reasonable. The service was fine though there were very few diners. We shared a selection of appetizers which were not too bad, but the bread/biscuits were stale and dry. The mains were the problem. Burgers,... More

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

Thank you for your valuable feedback, we have addressed your concerns and are looking forward to improving the waffle iron service. We apologize for not serving the A' la carte fried egg, this was a request that we normally make for our guest, and we understand that the order wasn't filled. We hope you continue to join us and feel... More
