Quality food - but please add healthy choices

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... read more

We especially liked the scenery and the hiking trails, and the beds were extremely comfortable. The restaurant could have a broader menu.

This restaurant is located in the main lodge at peaks of otter. One of us had the inhouse prepared meatloaf and the other had the fresh Abbott lake trout. Both were excellent but I would pick but trout as my favorite. For dessert we shared a black berry cobbler topped off with black berry ice cream. excellent excellent excellent

We have always enjoyed this restaurant. The meals are well-prepared and varied. The blackberry cobbler is to die for.

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

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
