Newfound Lodge is a good place to stay. The staff are very nice and helpful. They strive to make your stay exceptional. Clean rooms. Reasonable prices. Nice Restaurant with good food. I will definitely make this part of my stay in Cherokee again.

This was a nice surprise. The breakfast buffet at Newfound Lodge Restaurant was awesome! The variety and selection was way above par and the food quality was wonderful. The price was more than reasonable. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal here!

We ate here for breakfast and dinner one day. The breakfast buffet was quite nice, but they do start taking up the food promptly at 10:45 am to prepare for lunch. We were there for dinner on Saturday and were disappointed that we missed the seafood buffet. There was a buffet of typical homestyle foods on Saturday, but we ordered... More

Passing through the town, my husband and I stopped for lunch. There was not much variety on the buffet (couple of veggie options, mashed potatoes, mac and cheese, fried meat options, nothing healthy) but it was hot and flavorful. The staff was prompt and pleasant, so the atmosphere was nice. Ok stop as a traveler but unsure if it is... More

This place is where we had our dinner and breakfast. We wanted to try lunch too, but we ate too much in the breakfast . They have a buffet for all three meals and you can order from the menu too.

I loved this place. It kind of looked like a hotel restaurant from the outside but inside was a great buffett with all sorts of home cookin'. The price was an unbelievable $10. It included a really nice salad bar, fried chicken, chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy, the best carrots and green beans I have had in a... More

All I can comment was three couples on a trip looking for a place to eat near the hotel. We were not pleased and the food was only filling and not tasty.We ordered off the menu rather than buffet. I would not eat there again if in that area. The Dairy Queen is nearby....LOL
