“Dry rubbed Pork Ribs at the Park-- YUM!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2012

We have been coming to Tennessee for the past 7 years since we purchased our town home in Fairfield Glade in Crossville. We stumbled upon the restaurant at Cumberland Mountain State Park. Every Saturday evening they have all you can eat dry rubbed pork ribs.
By far the best I have had!
Every trip to our home there we must have a Saturday rib night at the park!
Diana is our favorite waitress...She always remembers us, always has a bright smile and is the best!
I highly recommend these ribs...you will not be disapointed!!!

“Don't Go”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

We were told by a RCI rep that the seafood buffet was excellent. If this was excellent I wold hate to see bad, Everything is fried with little flavor. You would think that crab legs would be on the buffet but NO they want to charge you an additional $8 per pound . Do yourself a favor and DON'T GO,

“Best food in a State Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2012

Not kidding about the best food around. The locals drive for miles just to eat the food at the State Park restaurant. My favorite was the chocolate cobbler. Yum. The park itself was interesting also. Great place for a conference.
