We ate lunch at The Grill one day and had dinner there the next. Service was good both times. The bathrooms were clean. BLTs were very tasty! They were served on a bun, not sliced sandwich bread as I expect for a BLT. Although I was surprised by this, it tasted good. Fries were crispy. We ordered the veggie pizza... More

The food that we ordered was typical of a grill type restaurant. I had no complaints. The service was good too and the people were more than friendly to us. The atmosphere of this place is great. You can eat inside or out. They have a HUGE porch area. We were there over labor day weekend so we were also... More

I was with a group of about 10 motorcyclists and we stayed at the Fontana Village Resort for a couple days and this is where we ate. It offered average food at average prices, and what can you do as there really isn't much else available in the area. My first night's meal was a burger and it arrived over... More

Compared to the restaurant in the lodge I am rating this high at "average". I stayed at fontana while my husband rode his motorcycle through the local area and I wanted a relaxing sun soaked pool day. I wanted a sandwich or something I could take to the room and have a small bite to eat before I laid in... More

The service here is so warm, welcoming and friendly. The setting is relaxing - I love the broad porch, ceiling fans and sweeping views. The food here, frankly, stinks. We tried the salad bar, ordering fried chicken on the side. Our waitress brings out two plates of chicken fingers that look like they were microwaved from a box and told... More

Beautiful setting and great servers but the food is only average. My grilled cheese was obviously made with cheese from a squeeze bottle or Cheese Whiz. All sandwiches are made on buns as they do not have any sliced bread.

We were going to drive the 'Dragon" and then loop to the Cherahola skyway, and back to Loudon Tn. It would be lunchtime in Fontana, so based on limited options and a nice looking porch at the Wildwood Grill, we decided eat here. The porch is, in fact, nice, but it overlooks a parking lot. The pictures don't show the... More

When I first bought my time share at Fontana, they had a buffet restaurant, a grill, and the upscale restaurant and an ice cream parlor, now, in the winter, there is the grill and sometimes only the upscale restaurant. Now, I understand that in the winter, they can sometimes be half empty, which is why I go there for cell... More
