Beautiful sights but no one around to see them. Can't keep up the lodge with few visitors. Lunch staple, fries, were not acceptable. Lovely carved poles, rooms for meetings and celebrations. Needs guests.

Thank you for your review about lunch, we will be sure to share that with our food and beverage director. As you stated, it is a shame more people were not here to enjoy that view. Depending on what day you visit, the lodge can seem pretty scarce on occasion. Some days we are searching for parking options for a... More

Service was excellent. Menu very, very limited. Catfish excellent, French fries tasted like they had been around awhile. The view is the best part of this restaurant.

Service was friendly, nice buffet, and menu to order from had good selections as well, There with my daughter and grandchildren. Food was well prepared. Service was kind and patient with children. Clean, efficient and well decorated as befitted the lake and conservation atmosphere. winding roads to get there but worth the drive.

We returned because of a nice stay earlier this year. We had a rough start and it did not get better. Check in staff were barely civil, the restaurant was under staffed and again, put upon to provide service. We decided to take our meals in town instead. Checking out took forever since one person was trying to take care... More

Thank you for your review on trip advisor. Since our budget cuts, we have been short staffed through most of the last two years. It is our hopes that if the passing of Amendment 2 goes through, we will be able to plan for the future more appropriately; including the proper staff for customer service. Comments such as yours is... More

What an incredible park, wildlife, boat ramp and roads are just top notch. The resort is average at best, very dirty, not well maintained. We also attended a wedding at the resort. Food was below average, service was a 1 star dirty plates were left on tables all night long along many other no service items which included the restrooms.... More

We particularly enjoyed the breakfast brunch, which had plenty of food and good variety. On Labor Day morning they (understandably) seemed a little short staffed, so service was a bit slower and they were out of English muffins. But the staff who were there were very friendly and helpful.

Thank you for your review about our brunch. Labor day was a short-staffed day for our kitchen so your assessment was right on. We apologize for any lack of service on this day as it did get quite hectic with the turn out. Thank you for your patience and we look forward to being able to serve you again. More

We went to this restaurant for the first time. The Prime Rib was very tender and flavorful carved at the buffet. I also liked their fried chicken.The sides I had were mashed potatoes and cheesy broccoli with rolls. It was all good. My husband had the catfish, and he was not happy with them because they tasted like the grease... More

We stopped there on a Friday afternoon with the family. Was very pleasantly surprised. The food was pretty good. The staff was pretty friendly. Had a great view of Lake Guntersville. Would we go back...most likely! And would recommend it to others.

Stayed at the lodge as a quick get-a-way before starting back to work. The lodge is super clean and very accommodating. I really enjoyed the buffet. All the food is good and the view is amazing.
