AAA Inspector Notes
Inspector Pick (View): The large chalet style windows allow views of the CCC built viaduct. The view is spectacular with the fall foliage reflected in the water.
Inside park boundaries, this restaurant is nestled among the trees and affords hard-to-beat views of Byrd Lake. It then ups the ante with a great buffet that varies its offerings of seafood, prime rib, pork chops and chicken, in addition to hot vegetables and salad fixings. On Fridays, it's hard to beat the park's pride selection: fried catfish. The made-from-scratch desserts, especially the banana pudding, are delicious. Phone ahead to ask which days dinner is served.
