The restaurant cooks many items with cheese (lots of it in grits; homefries swimming in cheese, pasta offered only with alfredo sauce), etc. The customer satisfaction survey that the lodge sends out after the visit doesn't ask any questions about the restaurant. This seems odd as the restaurant in the lodge is the only place to eat in the immediate... More

The view on the lake is really great, but the food is not that exciting. Style was homemade but didn't look as it was a passionate chef. If you're not too hungry then just enjoy the view and drive on.

The Peaks of Otter Lodge recently changed management hands & is now offering a new and improved menu in the Lake View Restaurant, which is adjacent to the lodge. The chicken, steak & prime rib are excellent. The view overlooks Abbott Lake at the foot of Sharp Top Mountain - a very romantic place for dinner.

A beautiful view from the panoramic picture window says it all. Watching the otters frolicking in Abbott Lake during breakfast was entertainment at its best. It is always best to start your day with a smile! ☺ The omlettes were very tasty and we were offered a nice selection of side dishes to compliment the meal. The dinner the night... More

We have been back since and each time the prices have risen drastically and the... More

On August 1 2008 we went to the Parkway Restaurant...we had gone there for our "honeymoon" dinner in 1994 and was very pleased with the food. We have been several times since 1994 and each time the quality had been on the decline but we wanted to try something different. The drive to the location was beautiful as always, deer... More

We called the restaurant in advance to make a reservation. We were told that they did not take reservations. Our party had to wait over an hour and a half to be seated while other parties who came in after us were seated before us. When we asked the hostess why others were being seated ahead of us, we were... More
