Stopped here for lunch after hiking to Hawksbill summit. Shenandoah cheesesteak was tasty, and the blackberry ice cream pie was divine! Gorgeous view from dining room.

We ate dinner and breakfast here during our stay and were pleasantly surprised. Dinner service was great despite there being a full house. Food was good. The shrimp and grits I had could have been better, and our food wasn't as hot as it should...More

The dining room is available to any Skyline Drive traveler, but it will be crowded most evenings--opening at 5:30--with the Skyland Resort guests. The line starts forming about 5:00, and they open promptly at 5:30. Seating goes pretty quickly, and they are good at moving...More

After a harrowing night of hurricane winds battering my tiny primitive campsite by the Appalachian Trail, Skyland was like a desert oasis. And the Pollock Restaurant was an ideal place to relax, reflect and recharge. With its 1930s CCC design, high wood ceilings, huge windows...More

We had dinner and breakfast the next morning here while staying at Skyland. It was the busy Fall season so the place was packed but service was excellent and served with a friendly smile. We opted for the breakfast buffet and the variety was excellent....More

We stayed at Skyland three nights and ate one lunch and one dinner at the Pollock... and all three breakfasts at the Grab n Go in the lobby. Keep in mind that this is National Park food... and an outside management company 'manages' the accommodations...More

Skyland’s Pollock Dining Room serves wonderful regional specialties with farm-to-fork flavors and sumptuous views of the Shenandoah Valley. And considering the elevation of Skyland, it’s only natural that Mile-High Blackberry Ice Cream Pie is a house specialty!
