Nice lobby, nice views. Buffet set up for lunch. Staff was hopeless, food was barely passable. Whole place felt dirty. Too bad they couldn't get some management that cared a little bit.

Great assortment of options at lunch and dinner buffet. Breakfast buffet was good, just too highly priced if you only wanted one or two items. Staff are friendly, and move at a slower pace than most places. Very relaxing meal with incredible scenery!

Thank you for your review. We offer a per item price at breakfast, if you let your server or cashier know that you would only like a couple of items , they would have gladly priced it for you. I 'm sorry we did not know that while you were here. Please keep that in mind on your next visit.... More

Location: Right at the top of Amicalola Falls just keep driving to the top after paying the parking fee. You can go in to the visitor center and get a simple map. You could also walk to the top of the mountain via the man made steps but it is steep, thin air, and would probably take an hour and... More

Unsanitary handling of food. The main server directly handled meat, eggs, vegetables, etc. with his bare hands and refused to put gloves on after we had requested. Most food items were bad tasting and poorly seasoned. We had gone there with 16 of our Senior Group and the only positive items were the deserts and the coffee. The meal is... More

My wife and I spend a great afternoon at the falls, very well worth the trip. Extremely scenic and a nice hike....Eat before you go. The Lodge charges $16 for a buffet which was extremely mediocre. Dry chicken, baked fries, soup was bland and Luke warm, green bean had no seasoning and seemed to come right out of the can.... More
