Nothing bad to say. It hit the spot after our hike, If the weather had been nice the puppies could of hung with on the patio. The restaurant actually has a big rock in it.

Ordered 2 chesseburgers and fries and cost about $20. The burger it self was decent and tasted good. But a pretty exp place to eat. When went around 2pm so the line wasn't long. food was served pretty fast overall enjoyed it. Fyi fries taste like Arbys, so they were pretty good :)

Not bad for a typical grill in a tourist location. Food was good, but nothing spectacular. Not a bad spot for a fairly inexpensive lunch.

Cafe 7 at the top of the park has outside seating with panoramic views and much better food than the typical greasy American fast food found at this grille restaurant near the ticket entrance. It cost a little more but is well worth the extra walk and the wait.

So we stopped here before walking up to the top. Typical fare with Nathan's hotdogs, fries and the such. Prices are high but got the job done. Girl taking our order was very nice and sweet to my kids. Served a purpose but I would not choose to eat here.

Decent hamburgers, grilled chicken sandwiches, hot dogs and chicken tenders. My salad was disappointing, @ 8.99 I expected fresher and a bigger variety of veggies. Very casual, there were not tables big enough to sit our party of 8 so we just pulled up chairs and arranged ourselves as we liked.

Not much of a menu to choose from and high priced for what you get. After generous portions at the City Café, the ones at this place were sparse, and somewhat disappointing in taste. It does have a nice atmosphere to it, but I recommend you eat before coming to Rock City. Maybe another place on the trail is better,... More

One of a few places to eat up on the mountain, this is right in the Rock City property. They were busy and service was slow. You walk up and order and you can go sit down and wait for them to call your name. One of the two items in our order was wrong so had to wait again.... More

The food was terrible and the restaurant was dirty. All the tables were dirty, dried ketchup, dirty papers, etc. Our order came out wrong and the food wasn't even hot. Would have been better off skipping lunch.
