A nice escape with a good view and food

The menu is fitting for most types of diners. I think the food is very well prepared for a resort that has a captive audience. A lot of resorts that are not in competition with other restaurants nearby tend to over charge for menu items,or serve food that is below expectations. Sometimes maybe a... read more

We stayed at the Four Winds Resort and since we had been out on a boat all day it seemed easiest to have dinner at the restaurant on site. This is the only restaurant open for dinner during the week. Service was fine but not great. Almost everything was very overcooked. My burger was charred, despite the waitress asking how... More

Absolutely the worst service and management I have ever had! We go to this resort often in the service never changes. The only reason we come to this resort is simply because it is the only available option on Lake Monroe. Every time we went to the restaurant to eat, for a simple meal it was more than a three...

A beautiful, fun place that could be so much more. First of all, the prices are outrageous for what you get. In the past, the salads were big and full of ingredients, but now, for a minimum of $8, you get a tiny bowl of lettuce. I'd be willing to pay their prices for better food. We tried it again... More

My wife suggested we go for a drive in the country. WE ended up in the restaurant of Fourwinds after paying a $7 entrance fee to the State Park. The ranger told us to present the receipt to the server so they can take it off the final bill. Sweet.. We sat inside the glass enclosed dining room as it... More

Came to the Fourwinds to hear a band waited over thirty minutes to get a drink. There was maybe ten other guest in the bar area. They ran out of all beer by ten. I would hate to see what will happen if they have a crowd. The worst service ever. To make this place work they need to hire... More

It seemed like a pretty decent place to go. Until one night, a drunken hillbilly couldn't handle his alcohol tried to start a fight with me; the bartenders heard him and didn't even care. By the way, I tip well. I think they would rather have drunken fools that like to fight in their bar rather than good paying customers.

While the main restaurant may be closed, plenty of options available in the friendly bar. Staff was friendly and attentive, and even helped out with to go items for the next morning's early departure.
