When you're hiking on the Appalachian Trail, this is the kind of place you dream about... The food is hearty, hot, and delicious. After trekking through the Smokies at a fast pace, we were craving some good chow & this hit the spot!

My boyfriend and I camped at the "tent site" and decided to have lunch here on our last day. Burgers, fries and chili. Everything was very tasty. The Chili is amazing.

The dragon's breath wings keep me coming back for more. Too bad they are only open seasonally , as several coworkers have been sending after them whenever I go. I informed one of the seasonal status , to which he replied , 'Damn!!'. The two guys that prep them could open a separate wintertime spot specializing in the wings only... More

Really enjoyed our visit here. The pizza came highly recommended by the staff. It did not disappoint. Not a huge fan of their chips and salsa. The server was very pleasant and attentive.

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
