This restaurant is on the grounds and since it is a curvy drive to a town, you don't have many options. I was still a little green from riding through the Tail of the Dregon, so my choices for food were limited. The food was so forgettable that we can't remember what we ate! Employees were nice....the place needs some... More

Food was so so and high priced. Being a remote location they had us! We did not want to travel the mountain roads to eat. Spent many meals in the cabin.

My daughter and I slept late and missed breakfast, so we went straight to Wildwood Grill only to find that it wouldn't be open for another 30 minutes. We sat on the balcony deck wishing for a cup of coffee. It wasn't long before Murphy came to our rescue with a warm welcome and a large glasses of fresh water... More

We were at Fontana Village Resort for the 4th of July. After swimming for a few hours we worked up an appetite and headed down the hill to the Wildwood Grill and take in all the prefireworks activities. To say it was packed would be an understatement. However we were surprisingly sat right away. It took a few minutes to... More

Until now I thought you had to go to Honolulu to experience the worst restaurant service anywhere. Well good news if you're on the east coast... you can save the plane fare. I recommend if you go in here you wear a large flashing police light on your head or you'll be ignored. The food ain't bad, average for a... More

Thank you very much for your review. The Fourth of July is the single busiest day of the year for our property and while that is no excuse for slow service, typically if a guest seats themselves in a "Please Wait to be Seated" restaurant and then proceeds to move tables then they can expect delays.

Good service, good food. Well priced. Lovely setting. We enjoyed the fried green tomatoes; the jalopena pimento cheese is a southern classic!

I happened to arrive during a NISMO meeting or something along those lines. The place was packed , but the metaphorical gears turned smoothly. The food was top notch as always , and staff remained unfazed and pleasant.

We had stayed here at the resort, and came by for an early dinner. It's a little overpriced for mediocre food. Trys to be trendy, but falls short. The staff is lovely and kind. But the food fails to impress. Probably wouldn't come back with other choices within a half hour distance away. It's ok, but not great.

You can see everything going on outside from the tables, which is cool. The food and drinks were good. We accidentally went when there was a Mini Cooper convention and 600 Mini Coopers around (2nd week in May)...... but that downfall didn't affect our dinner.
