Food was below average. Did not keep up with demand of salad bar. Waited 30 minutes to refill lettuce.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant after discovering Patti's Settlement had burned down. Though from the outside all one sees is the hotel with an exceptional view, the inside appeared very bland. In fact, we left once because we thought we were in the wrong location. DON'T BE DECEIVED! The food was AMAZING! I had the catfish and salad bar, and every bite was delicious! The pies were equally tasty. I would highly recommend this restaurant based solely on the food. The atmosphere may be lacking, but the flavor of the food more than makes up for it. Plus, the views through the windows are gorgeous! After finishing the meal, the location allows for quiet walks around the grounds and along the lake. Take advantage of the peace and beauty!

We are participants in the KSP's Family Adventure Quest program. We have stayed at a number of state parks over the last couple of years and we can say that this restaurant is the best that we have seen in the parks system. The steak and the BBQ sandwich are especially tasty. Biscuits and gravy are very good also. The burgers are great. The view is really nice. The staff is friendly.

We chose this restaurant because of the location. We arrived expecting the buffet but were told that it was not being served this night. We ordered sandwiches off the menu. We allowed 2 hours for dinner. After ordering we waited 60 minutes before the appetizers were served. After 90 minutes we still had not been served. At that point we asked for the food to be put in takeout boxes. 2 people never were served thier meal. There was no manager on duty and no one made any compensation except to remove the food that was never received. I spoke to a manager the following day who’s first comment was “ you did get you food “. Yes I did and eat it while checking out from a box. He also said he didn’t know of anything he could do for me. And even repeatedly stated it was our fault for not calling ahead. Never again
