“Mather Lodge Petit Jean State Park”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Beautiful CCC era lodge with recent addition of new lobby and Restaurant update. The additions were done in the CCC era lodge pole tradition. If you plan to stay in the lodge be aware that the rooms or from the CCC era. They are small but nice. But with all the beautiful scenery in the are why would you want to spend a lot of time in your room.

If you are camping look up my Petit Jean Campground review.

“Top Notch--Both the Food & View”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013

Mather Lodge at Petit Jean State Park is just a short drive off Interstate 40 by way of the Morrilton Exit. The views at this beautiful park and the great food, service, and view from the dinning area is sure to impress those who make the trip. We had friendly and fast service and more food than we could handle--large plates and packed with great food!

“Wonderful food, great prices, and a wonderful setting.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

While camping at Petit Jean State Park in Arkansas, we had some of our meals at the restaurant at Mather Lodge. The building is beautiful, with large logs and stonework being the main building materials. The chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and green beans, accompanied by a fresh, hot roll, was delicious. The open-faced hot beef sandwich, along with the mashed potatoes and green beans was equally good. I can't wait to try some of the desserts! Prices are very reasonable, not much more than a fast-food burger and fries, but you will love the selections. And if you are lucky enough to have Brandy as your server, you will be greeted with a smile!

“Nice dinner and beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

We stayed at the Mather Lodge in June and ate the evening meal at the restaurant. They have several items that are their specialty and one is the catfish which my husband says was very light and delicious. Yes, the food takes about 30 minutes to come out but enjoy the views which are spectacular. We found the food to be very good and we were glad we ate there. The service was also good and the ice tea was refreshing and the best I had in awhile.
