Nothing to brag about - your basic eggs, omelets, meats, French toast, potatoes, pastries. The brunch items were soup, Spring mix lettuce and a pasta dish. And a chocolate fountain with fruit. No carving station. Simple, but a nice view. Wouldn't go again; would check out the Esmeralda in Lake Lure/Bat Cave next time.

Brunch at the Lakeview was disappointing for the price. Meh. Nothing at all special, and fairly limited selection. The view, however, was lovely.

This is a restaurant that has some characteristics of fine dining with prices between Outback and Ruth's Chris but has staff/management right out of Denny's. The managers spent a great deal of time around the bar seemingly watching NASCAR. Wife ordered crab cakes w/extra shrimp. This was delicious. I asked the waitress if the cook(s) were proficient at grilling steaks... More

While vacationing in the smokey mountains, my family stopped here for dinner the past Saturday evening. I'm still on vacation from MA and didn't want to wait until I got back to write this. I had the pleasure of being waited on by Melissa on the patio. She was professional, friendly, knowledgable, and best of all a fellow Patriots fan.... More

Could not get in the first visit with a reservation or a 90+ minute wait. The resort did not share this in any of their communications. Made it to breakfast buffet the next day. Very average.in all areas. Nothing disappointing, but nothing to make us hurry back for another meal.
