We stayed at Big Cedar recently for nearly a week. We ate at Devil's Pool quite a few times. The menu is exactly the same in the restaurant as it is downstairs in the Buzzard Bar. If you are there more than a couple days, that really limits your food choices. The service is very inconsistent. We had a great... More

On Sunday morning our last stop at Big Cedar Lodge is always their fabulous brunch at Devil's Pool Restaurant. They have a wide variety to choose from, including fried trout. They also prepare omelets made to order. Always enjoy this part of our visit!

Really enjoyed dinner at Devil's Pool Restaurant. Made reservations, but restaurant was not overly busy. Started with cornbread appetizer, which was fantastic. I had the fried chicken breast, mashed potatoes with a delicious cream gravy. My wife had a salad with chicken breast. Good food, and lots of it. Derek was our friendly and efficient server.

The service here is so exceptional. We arrived about 15 min early...given a suggestion to have a cocktail in the bar until they opened. We were seated instantly once they open. Our waitress was attentive and made local recommendations for activities and restaurants. She was engaging and very pleasant. The wine was good. The smoked prime rib was fabulous. The... More

We had breakfast and enjoyed the breakfast buffet. It was decent for the money and we enjoyed our meal. The view is beautiful and they have outside seating as well as indoors. The parking is minimal but they have overflow parking and you then need to go over a bridge with a great view to the restaurant. It is a... More

Really basic. But they sure think that what they have to offer is top quality when you look at the check. I haven't been to Applebees in a years but that's what it reminded me of.

Nice relaxing environment with good food. Gotta try their trout and Bourbon Onion burger. Take a stroll on the Devils Pool swinging bridge after dinner or just walk the grounds.

I had lunch there two days ago. The service was good and the food was good. I liked the atmosphere and will continue to go there for lunch or dinner. I have eaten there many times and would recommend the Devils Pool Restaurant.

It was our first night in town and tired from a long day of travel, we decided on this place for take out. Once we pulled up, I knew I wished we dined in. A very quaint, country looking place that was busy. The decor was great. We ordered for 12 people and they had everything ready in about a... More
