This is a classic place to have a good meal and watch a sunset from Skyline Drive. The attentive host seated us at a window, so we enjoyed both. Limited menu of Virginia Dinner Classics made the service efficient.. we enjoyed the trout ....fair sized portions at a fair price. We are glad we saved room for the Blackberry Ice... More

In all honesty my families meals were super. I ordered the Turkey Pot Pie and it was not nearly as good as the description. Disappointing, the crust was actually a couple of biscuits on a turkey soup. Felt like a left over. So I dropped it a rating. A nice place to stop and have a nice lunch and a... More

Even the names of the dinner dishes was historical - e.g. New Deal Turkey. Can't forget where you are from either the menu or window. We were here for breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, since there were no other options unless we were willing to drive out of the park (we weren't). Apparently not many other people wanted to either as... More

We hiked up from the bottom of white oak canyon parking, starting in sunshine and ending with foggy mist on a November day, so let me tell you the giant mugs of strong hot coffee and the lunch tasted awesome after 6 miles of uphill hiking and knowing we had 6 miles downhill in the rain to go. Really, the... More

We took a day and traveled up Skyline Drive northward. We by-passed eating at the Grill at an earlier stop to eat at the Pollock Dining Room. I really regretted it after we spent way too long for a lackluster lunch here. It was promising that we were seated fairly quickly (after a small spat between the hostess and a... More

The food here is expensive and not really very good. The serving staff seem overworked and not very well trained. The food is unimaginative not very tasty and poorly presented. I ordered a vegetarian linguine and it had pieces of bacon in it. The food was replaced and served with a flourish and a pronouncement of 'vegetarian linguine madame!' You've... More

Ate at this restaurant for breakfast and dinner- service was absolutely wonderful at both meals. Friendly wait staff- dinner server brought out a candle and sang to my husband after she heard it was his birthday. Biscuits were excellent. Beautiful view out window in morning. But...grits were unlike I'd ever tasted- chewy with a consistency of oatmeal. After dessert came... More

A wall of windows with a great view. A warm cozy fireplace on a cold day. Friendly, efficient wait staff. Delicious food!

We wanted to treat ourselves to a nice lunch after hiking. The restaurant closes at 2:30. Opens for supper at 5:30. So we came back the next day. The view is beautiful. The food is bland. No taste at all. I had the pot pie and it looked great, but it was all biscuit. Hardly any vegetables and about 4... More

Average food but service was a joke. Service was apathetic and bordering on rude. The service needs a major overhaul.

Skyland’s Pollock Dining Room serves wonderful regional specialties with farm-to-fork flavors and sumptuous views of the Shenandoah Valley. And considering the elevation of Skyland, it’s only natural that Mile-High Blackberry Ice Cream Pie is a house specialty!
