Mediocre food, everything is dry and overcooked. I ate here thinking I was doing something good and supporting the state park but wow what a joke. Come on West Virginia you're better than this! Can't say how disappointed I was in this place!!! Go out to Thomas or Davis and support the locals. It's like 5 minutes or less away... More

We ate supper here with some nervousness after reading some of the reviews. We were satisfied with the food. The view is lovely from the dining room, and it was not at all crowded when we were there. There is an adequate salad bar and the evening meal was a buffet. It was simple food, but adequate. There weren't a... More

We remembered eating good, country cooking when we used to visit here long ago. Alas, the food is no longer something to write home about, and the ambiance has gone downhill, too. Rent a cabin and cook your own.

We have stayed and eaten here before. The restaurant offers a good but simple meal that tasted fine. Not a fancy place, just good cooking. The service was friendly and took good care of us.

Had the dinner buffet, and like any buffet, this had some great things, some okay things and everything in between. Potatoes were some of the best I've ever had, and there was also a very good carrot cake. Fish was very fishy, but nicely seasoned; manicotti was decent.

Food was adequate, but not outstanding. Box lunches prepared for our outings were outstanding. Lots of wholesome food.

Really clueless service - a half an hour for a glass of wine to be delivered and an hour for the food. The bread came after the food. Try the Sawmill in Davis and a few minutes away.

Dinned here twice during the trip. Both times were in the middle of the week and off season. The staff was very warm and friendly, but seemed to be over run with just seven seated tops. The main dining room has close to fifty plus table tops. The food was very tasty and priced very well. Our apple pancake thirty... More

Although the dining room seemed to close early, the selections were good and the price very reasonable. Many windows allow keeping an eye on the abundant deer but cannot see the Falls without leaving the table. The Lodge Dining room is bright, open, and friendly. I had trout that was just okay but my brother had a great pot roast... More
