My family and I stay at Big Cedar Lodge pretty regularly and we love this place. They have excellent appetizers, delicious sandwiches, nachos and more. It's a little pricey for high end bar food, but you get what you pay for.

The buzzard bar is located just below the Devils pool restaurant. It is open late til midnight and offers the same menu as Devils Pool restaurant or room service. Food is great! They had live music as well. We enjoyed eating here.

Our 2nd visit for a late lunch. We had the sliders and the cornbread. The cornbread was the best I've ever had. The sliders were amazing as well. Our service was quick and we are outside on a sunny day. I will be returning.

Just downstairs from Devil's Pool, you'll find a warm welcome at Buzzard Bar. There's comfortable seating indoors amid antique appointments and the usual collection of stuffed, furred and feathered friends, or you may choose an outdoor setting on our patio or overlooking the pool. Every evening, we'll feature local entertainers including our very own Singin’ Cowboy playing and singing all your favorites. Buzzard Bar is a non-smoking establishment.
