More than enough to eat. Food was excellent, we ate twice while we were in Crossville, TN. Although it was crowded, we did not have to wait long. Fish buffet was excellent, and so was the chicken. At least 3 entrees, excellent salad bar and desert. Price is right.

I was very unhappy with this place. The only thing good was the catfish. We had poor service, needed refills,we had to run down our waitress. The place was highly recommened, but I thought it was poor and pricey for what you got. We had no breads of any kind , not much of a choice on the buffet.

We have eaten here many times over the years and I'm always impressed with how good the food is. It's nothing fancy, but it is comfort food. This day the entrees were meat loaf and baked chicken. There is a really nice salad bar with a nice selection of toppings and dressings, plus country-style vegetables like green beans, mashed potatoes, and corn. Desserts this day included banana pudding, apple cobbler warm from the oven, chocolate cake, coconut cake, and soft-serve ice cream. The food is served buffet-style and many choices are labeled with nutrition information.

The restaurant itself has huge windows that boast a gorgeous view of the woods and lake just outside.

Prices are very reasonable and the waitstaff is attentive. This is a popular destination for large groups so I would recommend arriving early.

We recently traveled to Crossville, TN and there was only one place that I requested to go out to eat dinner, Cumberland Mountain State Park. The Sunday buffet was great specially considering that the 127 corridor sale was just ending and we expected to see the restaurant packed. The wait staff and very friendly and even the chef came out to the buffet to insure that everything was proper. He was very proud of the chicken and pulled pork as well as the vegetables that he had prepared. We have been going here for over 12 years and have never been disappointed. Hopefully we will be able to continue to visit this location for another 12 years or more..............

What a surpirise we had when we arrived at this restaraunt situated in the Cumberland State Park. Friday night we enjoyed the catfish buffet with the normal fixings and several desert choices (opted for bananna pudding FABULOUS). We were so impressed we came back for the BBQ buffet Saturday night and WOW, great smokey ribs and pork butt, same great sides and deserts, great atmosphere, huge old style chalet style windows that overlook the water, stone bridge and grounds. BEAUTIFUL !
NOTE - it's a local buffet, so it gets busy starting about 5:30 and when tour buses arrive
it's apparantly a local favorite with the 50+ crowd so don't be intimidated if the avg age is 60 when you walk in..
It's great food served with excellent service old style
HIGHLY RECOMMEND !
