“Beautiful views and great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

We spent the day meandering the 105 miles of Skyline Dr. and stopped midway for lunch in the Skyland Lodge. The menu offered great choices and we were both pleased. My turkey pot pie was really good and the portion was not too big and my husband loved the fried chicken. The service was good although we came in right before the end of the lunch hour and the server was also busy trying to clean his area and get ready to leave. We were there on a cold day and seated by the windows to take advantage of the view. Although there was a heater next to us, they have single paned windows and we definitely felt the cold air coming in.

“Thanksgiving Day Buffet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

The spread for the buffet was great. We had reservations for noon, which is the first seating. Everything was smooth, food was great.

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

They had some good soups. Not a bad selection for being out in the middle of nowhere. Service was generally good.

“Pretty good, one of few choices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2012

Considering there aren't many choices to eat in the area, you can't be too picky in terms of the food here. The nice thing is that it's actually pretty good food. It can be a little expensive, but we got a package with our room that included free dinner with a salad, entree and dessert for 2 people. The only complaint I've got is that the dessert really wasn't too great. Could have been warmer, tasted like it had been sitting around and reheated a time or two, and the taste really just wasn't too amazing either way. Otherwise, the salad and entree (we got the vegetarian options) were pretty good and the server was very friendly. The view from our table overlooking the valley was very pretty, too.
