Disclaimer: Yes, this is definitely the off season. Even so, it would seem better to simply do nothing and not serve food than to do things badly and ruin your reputation. First the good: the buttermilk fried chicken; the banana pudding; the mashed potatoes; the view; the people. Then the bad: the pork chops. Absolutely inedible. Could not get a... More

This restaurant had all three: excellent food, service, and atmosphere. The soup and salad bar had cornbread and beans along with a cream soup and lots of salad options. The Hot Brown off the menu was delicious, and they had good kid's meals as well. The waitress was prompt and pleasant. The river view was beautiful. We especially enjoyed watching... More

We are here while staying at the resort and found breakfast to be much better than dinner. We especially liked the breakfast buffet.

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

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.
