Stopped in for lunch after visiting The Fontana Dam. Great service, great food, Amazing views. The Village Resort staff (volunteers at the dam) were very helpful with directions and informative regarding the history of the area.

You can cook in your cabin or RV but if you are staying in the lodge, you are trapped food-wise. You have to eat at the Fontana restaurants. This one has a great location at the top of the village. It has that awesome front porch that looks down on the whole village. The service is good but the food... More

My colleagues and I visited Fontana Dam recently during a business trip. We found ourselves at the Fontana Village resort which we definitely want to stay at least once! I ordered the mushroom burger and potato salad. I can't say enough about the potato salad. I ordered an additional side of it to take back to the hotel with me!... More

We went here about 8:15 pm, and we sat outside per our request. The weather was perfect for outdoor seating. We had the "Dam Burger"--named for the Fontana Dam 2 miles away, the Mushroom Swiss Burger, and the Pulled Pork Sandwich. For sides we had fries and black bean chili. The whole meal was very good, prices are higher than... More

This grill has a really nice porch to sit and eat and look at the mountains and enjoy the fresh air. The host greeted us with a smile and we were seated. Waiter however seemed to take forever to get to us and I finally had to go track him down to pay so we could leave. The local beer... More

After a trek on the Tail of the Dragon we once again stopped here for lunch. This was our best visit ever! The outside patio is so relaxing and just an ideal spot. We had the mozzarella sticks as an appetizer and we were stunned how good they were. Cooked perfectly and the cheese was a good quality. The accompanying... More

The Wild wood grill is good with a lot of great people working there. They need more to chose from. It really is the only place to sit down & eat at Fontana Village NC. The resturant in the lodge is to expensive except for breakfast.
