We were staying in the cabins and ate a dinner and breakfast here. The service and atmosphere were great, very accommodating. The food was pretty average. Not bad but just average. We had the buffet both times and they were really struggling to keep everything filled. Some of the items ran out and were not replaced for 15 or 20... More

We stopped here for lunch while attending the Bill Monroe bluegrass festival in Beanblossom. This is a very rustic place-- but so beautiful. Our table looked out onto the butterfly garden, and we ordered off the menu. Service was excellent, and we didn't wait too long for our food. My mother said her BLT was the best she ever had--...

My family recently took a week camping trip to Brown County State Park & decided to visit the Abe Martin Lodge for breakfast for our last morning in the park. The wait was long but the breakfast buffet was worth the wait. Very expansive selection of typical breakfast items, fresh fruit & fried biscuits with apple butter. Staff seamed overwhelmed... More

I was at the lodge for a family gathering in the Princess Room I believe and I was quite surprised by how nice the lodge and whole set up was. Not "Lodge-y" in feel just look. The room was ample, but the provided food was lacking in taste and texture. I'd bring in your own if possible. Upon walking the... More

Plentiful buffet for breakfast and dinner and live music (guitar/acoustic soloist) during both. Very pleasantly surprised at the great food on the buffets.

While staying in the Brown County State Park and visiting the T. C. Steele Historic Site, my wife and I had lunch in the Abe Martin Lodge restaurant. The decor is rustic and full of the Abe Martin memorabilia. There is outside seating but it was not being used because of the cold weather this particular day and the inside... More

Several menu choices available. Bar setup is also available for wedding. Lodging was very good to have for family to stay together in the Lodge. Indoor water park in fabulous for... More

We went for lunch, but could still order off the breakfast menu which we chose to do. It was average breakfast fare-nothing special. There were several tables of customers, but only one server for the whole place along with a hostess who stood around and did nothing. We finally asked her to get us water as it was obvious the...

We stayed for an overnight with three boys ( under 12 years old), and loved the indoor waterpark!!! The rustic cabin was affordable, and close to the lodge for the boys to enjoy the game room and big screen TV ( with basic cable). I noticed the rustic cabins did not have individual fire pits however we enjoyed the bonfire... More

The Gem Restaurant in the lodge has an excellent breakfast buffett and a good dinner buffett. Both have wonderful fried cakes! Breakfast has everything, eggs, potatoes,fruit & lots more. The chicken on the dinner buffett is wonderful. Some of the food wasn't very hot.
