We made reservations to eat the Easter Buffet Lunch since we were staying in the state park campground. Bad plan. There were a different stations including a carving station with lamb and ham, vegetables and sides, peel and eat shrimp, salad, and dessert. Overall, everything was overcooked and in some cases not even appetizing in appearance. The ham was downright... More

Had the buffet during the week. Nice presentation but selections were rather limited. Food was just ok. Nothing special.... It was a take or leave situation for me.

It is a great surprise for us as a state park dining place. The buffet doesn't offer too many but great options. The salad alone is worth the price, fresh and great options including tuna salad and boiled eggs. The home-cooking food was always fresh and delicious. They do a great job waiting the tables and replenish food counter. The... More

Overpriced,not hot,service poor at best. Do not recommend this place at all. Drive the 2 miles into Helen and eat at Hoffers or Pauls.

The hostess at the lodge dining room was absolutely the friendliest and most helpful we have ever had. The lodge was cozy yet spacious with very inviting decor.

This was one of my boyfriend's Grandpa's favorite buffets. A little expensive, but the food was pretty good. They were constantly cleaning the stations and replenishing the food. They were quick to accommodate when asked for anything. After dinner walk the beautiful property.

The servers are lovely. No complaints there. The prices are something like $12 for breakfast buffet, $14 for lunch, and maybe $20 for dinner, per person not including tax and tip or drinks. We only went for breakfast since it was a bit high and the food felt old and cold at times. (like the eggs). It must be hard... More

Typically I don't love buffets but this was convenient, appropriately priced and had a good selection and friendly servers. A great place to grab breakfast if you're staying at the lodge or in the cabins.

We ate here twice during our stay and both times we received very attentive service from a friendly and helpful server. The food was good, and served hot. The salad I ordered was huge, as was the sandwich my boyfriend ordered, so we felt it was a pretty good value. We would not hesitate to dine here again if we... More
