Don't come for the food, come for the view

This is actually a Valentine's tradition for us. Don't get your hopes up on the food, it isn't typically very good. It is just an ok buffet. The view is what we go for, just looking down into the woods or mists. It is very peaceful.

The lodge has always been a stopping point for our family when we hike the falls. The buffet was disappointing to say the least. The lodge is under new management from a company out of Florida. The buffet was not well stocked. Some of the food was over salted. The fried chicken was greasy on the outside and undercooked on... More

I liked the view! The food was mediocre at best. Overcooked, confusing choices, (prime rib w/spanish rice?!?!), terrible desserts, no fresh fruit for cereal, and no yogurt offered!

The food was delicious, and the service was excellent. Kathy and Rick, expecially, offered excellent service, kindness, and they each had a great sense of humor. They were the kind of people you want to sit down with and share a cup of tea.

I like the fact that the breakfast buffet was included in my New Years Eve package. The waffles and potatoes were my favorite. I would suggest serving turkey bacon or sausage for those who do not eat pork.

The lodge is beautiful and well kept, but the food is eminently average Southern fare, steam tables of fried chicken and macaroni, green beans and mashed potatoes from the box, salty and uninspired. The reason to pay the price is the excellent and beautiful view out of the wonderful picture windows. The sad part is with such a splendid space,... More

We enjoy treating ourselves to a wonderful meal after hiking up and down the Falls. The food and service is superb. Couldn't believe the value. The view of the mountains are excellent from any table in the dining room.

The Inn is great and very modern. The food is good and the staff pleasant. You will enjoy this after you trek up the falls.
