We always visit this restaurant 3 or 4 times a year

They have a great Sunday Buffet. Reservations needed on Special holidays. Service is good and the food selection is big. Fried Biscuits a must. Fried Chicken always a good choice. Salad bar is good. You can order off the menue.

Overpriced buffet, mediocre food. Could not order off the menu on a Saturday night. Kids are only kids if they are 10 years old or less. There are some nice paintings to see in the dining room though. Wait staff was friendly. I like to order off the menu and not overeat, or feel obligated to overeat because you are... More

What are the leavins' (pronounced Leev-Uhns)? They are what is left behind. We came here expecting brunch. The breakfast buffet was still there, so we sat down to eat. Our server came and told us (when she FINALLY managed to come over and get our drink orders) that they would be tearing the breakfast bar down in 2 minutes. So,... More

Enjoyed our stay at this lodge. It is clean, quaint, and offers many activities for adults and kids. The best being it is in the State Park so hiking, pools, horse stables, picnic area, scenic drives, and a great restaurant are on site.

Had a really good meal on Sunday night, although they ran out of fried chicken due to a bike rally that weekend.

After hiking, we enjoyed the lunch buffet. It was delish! Service was terrific and the salad bar and food choices were plentiful. I have never heard of "cake sauce" before but I plan on putting it on everything I eat from now on! LOL

Ate several meals here on the three days (breakfast, lunch, and dinner). They have a very good buffet (which includes a salad bar) when the lodge reaches a certain capacity, but we weren't disappointed by meals ordered off the menu when the buffet wasn't available. Fried rolls and apple butter are a staple in the area--the lodge didn't disappoint!

We were staying in the beautiful Brown County State Park and we met family members at the Abe Martin Lodge in the park. The staff was very attentive and the food was great. The prices were reasonable. The food is old fashion rural food like my grandmother and mom used to prepare.

The dining room was decorated for fall and looked very inviting, with its wide plank floors and beamed ceiling. We had a quick lunch- salad bar and grilled cheese for my husband, grilled chicken salad for me. My salad was very full of chicken and bacon, with lots of cranberries and almonds. The menu choices were pretty ordinary, with no... More

The waitress told us the special was roast beef Manhattan when it was stroganoff. When I asked her why my order was wrong she just giggled that shed got it mixed up no apologies no offer of any replacement. The noodles were rubbery and the potatoes were instant, but the salad bar was nice and cold the way It should... More
