We stayed at the lodge for 3 days 2 nights and we ate at the Arkansas Al's steakhouse twice (both dinners). The service was excellent and attentive. We had the 14 oz prime rib, rib eye steak, and the trout. All 3 were very good. The warm homemade bread they give you to start is excellent. We also received 10% off because we were staying at the lodge. For the convenience while staying at the lodge for a couple, it is worth a visit especially for the amazing view and good food.
