We stopped for lunch. The buffet seemed to be a better deal than ordering the same foods off the menu, so we gave it a try. The food was better than expected. The fried chicken was good and the salad bar was fresh. We enjoyed the dessert they had which was a sweet potato turnover and we went back for seconds on that one. Yum!

We have always visited Newfound Lodge Restaurant over the past few years. We were in for lunch this week and totally disappointed. The business was not busy and our service was horrible. Our waitress "Whitney" had her long blonde hair flying around everywhere. She needed to have it braided or in a bun. We asked her for lemons and hot sauce. We received hot sauce 15 mins later and never got our lemons. When walking up to the counter all I seen her doing was standing around complaining about lazy workers and schedule. When she returned to our table she had dropped the friendly act. For an older woman she sure was an air head. Our food took forever to be given out. When we did receive it... Surprise Surprise... It was cold. I am sure because she took her time to bring it to us. Very disappointed.... The staff has went down hill from the past couple of years for sure.

We saw and advertisement for this restaurant on the visitors information channel, and glad we did. They were very friendly and the food was very good. Nice selection on the buffet. Loved that they also had the fruit bar with a nice variety of pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon, and honeydew. The food on the buffet was kept fresh, with someone from the kitchen constantly running back and forth to check and replace missing or low items. We will surely stop back by here when in the area again.
