We are A.T. thru-hikers who enjoyed a zero-day respite at the Fontana Lodge. We were delighted by Chef Michael's 'can-do' spirit when he prepared for us an absolutely delicious, custom-prepared vegan breakfast, consisting of fresh fruit - cantelope, melon, sliced orange, sliced apple, hash-browns prepared in oil, grits, toast, English muffin and biscuits. The hash browns were so yummy, that... More

I visit here rather often , and have yet to be displeased. Upon entry , I was greeted with a big 'Hey , welcome back!!' , which caught me off guard. I was surprised they remembered me , however , given the fact that I usually repetitively patronize places where I've gotten good service , it's no surprise. Of course... More

We were staying at the resort over Easter weekend and made reservations here for Easter dinner. I'm so glad we did! The food was fresh, well-prepared, and flavorful. Service was flawless. Although service was buffet style everything stayed filled and there was no waiting even though they were quite busy. We stopped in for breakfast Monday morning before we left... More

My husband and I were staying here for a day and ate lunch and dinner. The restaurant is most excellent. We had soup and sandwich for lunch and meat loaf for dinner. The meals were heartily proportioned and tasted great. Plan to eat breakfast there in the morning as well!

We ate here twice for dinner, on Friday evening, Feb. 12 and Saturday evening, Feb. 13. On Friday night, we had chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and collards and ribeye steak. The food was good, not outstanding but well-cooked and enjoyable. Maybe on the average of what you'd expect at a Cracker Barrel or similar restaurant. The prices were a... More

So often, hotel restaurants rest on the fact that they have business no matter what. I mean, you're 30 minutes from anywhere else to eat, so of course you're going to eat there. But, Mountainview does NOT do that. They're amazing. We were here several days, so we ate a lot of meals here. I highly recommend the pot roast,... More
