I have been eating at Dupont Lodge, Riverview Restaurant, literally all of my life. My family and I used to go nearly every Sunday after church. When I was younger, I loved eating there. The food was always so good. Unfortunately, the taste and quality of food has gone sharply down hill over the last few years. We met last... More

Came here Thanksgiving day for the famous buffet and it didn't disappoint! Amazing food, desserts... Especially the banana pudding! There was a 45 minute wait from 11-4 and you can wait outside on the porch and just take in the amazing view. We went for a short hike while we waited. Best Thanksgiving ever!!

On a recent day trip to Cumberland Falls to take pictures, I lunched in the restaurant at duPont Lodge. Although I've eaten there many times, the view of the river from the restaurant never disappoints. I ordered from the menu rather than having the buffet. My catfish dinner hit the spot and I topped it off with the absolutely amazing... More

The food ( lunch ) was just so so . The service was lousy , by people who really did't want to be there . The breakfast was better than expected .

We were tired when we arrived and were ready for supper. The menu was varied and all of the choices were tempting. They had a dish called a Hot Brown, this is a staple of the Kentucky Derby created by a restaurant in Louisville and I think it is the state dish of Kentucky. It is basically an open face... More

I spent 3 nights there and I only ate one night and it was the buffet. Service was good but the food was so so. The mashed potatoes tasted like boxed. Since I was out and about exploring other areas during the say I picked up some food from other places and brought back to eat.

Beautiful views of the river gorge below, with bird feeders in the windows which attract many types of birds. Food is average or below. They have a captive audience of hotel guests, so the institutional food sells.

We were in Kentucky visiting family & my cousin took us here. The food was good & the view was amazing. You can order off of the menu, but we got the buffet. Well worth the trip & had a great time.

We stopped in here for lunch. The food was good, not wonderful. We ordered off the menu (buffet was $14.50). Nothing we thought we would go out of our way to go back for. There are not many options in the area for food.
