Good morning buffet

Good morning buffet. $7.99 per person. Nice alpine vibe with a little history. One of the highlights in another wise so-so park.

The lodge features a large breakfast buffet, which is only nine dollars a person for hot food, cereal and fruit. This is about the same for any entree. Downside is there is no children's price. The fruit was good. The sausage patty I got was as hard as a hockey puck this could be due to being left on a... More

We took our Grandchildren to the Abe Martin Lodge for the weekend. There are no places to eat that are close by here so we went to their dining room in the Little Gem. We had to wait for for some time to get a table and when we did get seated the table was wet and sticky. When we... More

Dined at the Little Gem Restaurant in the Abe Martin Lodge for the Fourth of July holiday dinner (supper) buffet and was not disappointed. Salad bar had a good selection, there were two soups, and of course plenty of selections on the main buffet. I especially enjoyed the ribs while my wife and son couldn't get enough of the chicken....

Went to the lodge last Friday night to hear the band, Hamilton Creek play. The band is set up in the dinning room which is very "Brown County", rustic charm but not outdated. A large group of us (about 12) had the buffet. Where to begin..... Salad bar was very good, alot of fresh green options as well as the... More

After eating Mexican food for two straight nights we were ready for something different. Decided to try the Little Gem restaurant at the Abe Martin Lodge in Brown County State Park. Kind of wished we would have eaten Mexican again. It was just OK. My ground steak was nothing special and my wife was not liking the Chicken. It cost... More

Quaint little restaurant inside the State Park's Abe Martin Lodge offers some hearty, Indiana favorites including a good tenderloin sandwich. Prices were affordable, mostly under $10 per person.

The food was average, but the atmosphere made it all fine. They had live music and a great wait staff. It was a pleasant evening with my wife.

We went there on a Sunday about 12:30 pm. They had the lunch buffet for $10.99 which isn't a bad price. They had chicken and Ham on the buffet. The chicken was okay and I didn't try the ham it didn't look very good. The broccoli was cold. There just wasn't anything special about it. The salad bar was very... More
