It's been two years since our last visit. We still enjoy the atmosphere here in Fontana Village and the outdoor seating on the deck at the Wildwood Grill provides a relaxing setting. Not crowded at all on a Friday in July just after noon. Very pleasant servers were on hand. The menu has changed a bit and our choices of chicken wings and an order of onion rings seemed a safe bet. The garlic wings were quite different with their heavy smoked flavor, and we enjoyed them for the most part. Not special enough to rate them more than average however. The same with the onion rings which seemed like the frozen type, not made on the premises. Certainly an OK lunch after visiting the area. $20 with tip certainly isn't expensive. Would we come back a 3rd time? Perhaps, with the atmosphere and location being so nice. Maybe a different choice from the menu would help. There is plenty of parking in this very safe area.

Took a church group of 18 here to eat before we took the boat ride around the lake. The staff allowed us to sit on the porch or inside so I did have people in both places. The service was excellent. The food was even better (if you can get better). Several of my group ordered hamburgers and made large comments about being the best they had eaten. The salad bar was wonderful and had a great selection of ingredients. The atmosphere was something else. On the porch, breeze blowing, flowers blooming, birds singing. Ready to go back.
Thanks for the great Southern Hospitality.

Great food....great location....musical entertainment several times a week. watched as a music video was made for a favorite local group then was entertained by a musician who was with the Oak Ridge Boys for a number of years, was with Hank Williams Jr & lots of others. He was great. Ate on the porch & enjoyed it all. We had pizza & burgers. Enjoyed it all.
