Lots of great choices, we had prime rib and shrimp this time but if available, Try the Trout! Full bar available, the staff are the very best.

a window goes across the back of the dining room. Spectacular views of the mountains while you dine. Lunch menu was typical American style food. I had a great burger. Dinner was loaded with choices from prime rib to collard greens. Ask for kristi, she will keep your glass full of sweet tea.

Staying at Fontana and not driving off the mountain limits your choice of places to eat; but this restaurant has fine food and a variety of choices. The servers are friendly and attentive. We enjoy sharing entrees and the portions were more than generous. We had the pot roast with potatoes, carrots and onions one night. Another night we had... More

When we arrived at the resort the restaurant was already closed. BUT the manager (Ashley) smiled warmly and fixed us a wonderful meal to go...without a single complaint! It was decorated beautifully for the holidays and had a very warm feeling about it! Can't wait to try it for breakfast in the morning!

Can’t give it any higher marks than that. Delicious, tasty, served just right. Food quality and preparation commensurate with the prices. Décor beautifully decorated for Christmas. Could not ask for anything more. We loved it and returned again and again during our stay.

I stayed at Fontana Village Resort for the first time last weekend. I was very surprised at how nice it is and this restaurant is excellent!!! I was here with a large group of friends so service was a little slow but there were a lot of us. I had the Smoked Trout Risotto and it was excellent. I also... More

On arrival, the restaurant has a really nice ambience, with windows overlooking the mountains and nice low lighting. There was a stone wall at one end. The tables were huge, almost too big. No table cloths. The food was excellent, nuanced, well prepared. My wife had braised beef spare rib and mashed potatoes. I had shrimp and grits which were... More

The Service was fantastic! Dinner was very good but a bit over priced for what you get. The shrimp and grits was a big hit but not worth $22. The breakfast buffet is not good at all, unless you like paying $12 for powdered eggs and room temperature sausage and bacon.

The food was amazing. The steak dinner was big enough for my husband and I to share. Plus a wedge salad and Cream brulee cheesecake
