We really enjoyed the Lodge. We had dinner and breakfast at the restaurant. Food was good, service was good. Written menu was limited, however the servers helped us get what we desired.

So in reading reviews, it sounds like menu options are available. But I was led to believe at every meal that only a buffet was available. And the buffet was expensive and not great. I had breakfast , lunch and dinner. Really I can only say there was a variety but only mediocre. Wine and beer available. Very friendly staff.

The view from the restaurant is spectacular, especially when the leaves are changing. There was every kind of Thanksgiving dish you could want, and the service was wonderful.

The view was the whole southern end of the Appalachian mountains. The price about $15 for buffet and beverage. As for the food, my wife, a native Georgian and therefore an expert on the subject, says the biscuits were good. That's it for the good news. As for the rest of the lunch buffet, it brought to mind every high... More

We stopped after a day of hiking to enjoy lunch with a view. The food at the lodge is not 4 star but it is decent. We would recommend arriving to any meal early as time under the heat lamps isn't forgiving to the meat courses. The food is buffet style with 4 meat items to choose from, a salad... More

Took the family from out of town here for breakfast, have been here when it was much better, cold food, poor service, lack of food on buffet. But the view is great.

I was expecting run-of-the-mill accommodations. I was wrong. Fabulous decor and upscale touches in the room. Perfect view. Lunch is the best buffet because hikers increase the traffic so they do more than at dinner. Great food. The views are breathtaking and there is a selection of hiking trails for all levels. I am not easily impressed but this did... More

The restaurant specializes in a buffet for hikers. Otherwise it was 3 entrees, 2 veggies and potatoes. Salad was ok, and dessert bar was diverse. No full bar.

View is fantastic! Food is buffet only. Selection is average, price is above average. Service was average. Lodge is beautiful and spotless. Views from lodge terraces, rooms and restaurant are breathtaking.
