We have been travelling for 20 days. This is the worst flavorless meal. Compared to other state parks this is why it is a 2. On arrival we were told this is privately owned and there was NO Veteran's discount. This is also the highest...priced state park we stayed in. We received ZERO room service of any kind. Were told by the anti veteran clerk. "If you need towels or service come back down here (two buildinds away) and I will take care of you Ordered pork tenderloin "it comes with potatoes and mixed vegetables" she informed. Also shrimp scampi which was an amateur chef mistake. Way, way too much lemon; way,way too much garlic with spinach and mushrooms, nice size shrimp and more garlic and lemon. Also came with the mixed zucchini, yellow squash and one baby carrot. When ask if there was another choice as she is allergic to squash. She said no. "$36.60 and 6.62 tip as it is not waitress fault. Plus while waiting we got 4 warm, pure white, dinner rolls with only the flavor of the salted.butter The black water falls is worth the drive and walk. Many restaurants near there. Better resort to stay at.More

We went here yesterday on our way back from visiting the black water falls and it is currently closed for renovations. So if you are not staying at the lodge, call ahead to be sure it’s open before you make the drive.

Went there for dinner. Good service, better food. We both had the ribs and while very tasty, we didn't see a smoke ring in the meat. Everything was delicious. We were glad we went. Due to covid, I think their menu was more limited.

Bare menu with no descriptions! We ordered the sausage brawts that came out with some sauce on them (not listed on the menu) that my boyfriend won’t eat because it’s mayo based... we were short on time to watch the sunset so we just switched...food.... disappointing!! The menu didn’t have any sides listed so you didn’t know what it came with till the food came out.More

This is not an easy area for dining. We were pleased with the quality and quantity of our lunches (pulled pork sandwiches with slaw and spiral fries, pretzel/beer cheese appetizer),and our server was outstanding. Excellent attention to covid protocols. Prices are in line with other...offerings locally, but I would rate the overall experience here as one of the better options.More

This was the highlight of or time in the resort. They were socially distancing but the server was warm and gracious. The food was much better than we expected considering our experience with the hotel itself and the front desk staff. The chef really knows...what he or she is about. The beer cheese was off the charts. Don’t miss the homemade appledumplimg ala mode.More

Pancakes were large and very fluffy. Staff is courteous. Fuel up with a good breakfast before hitting the trails.

I got takeout for the family and we were all very disappointed. My burger was dense, overcooked and tasteless. And to think that burger cost $15!!! This was possibly the worst burgers I ever ate. My wife had the shrimp Alfredo. While she thought the...shrimp was OK, the Alfredo tasted like it came out of a jar. My son had the spaghetti and meatballs. The sauce, which there was very little of, tasted like it came out of a jar. None of us finished are meals and we’re left hungry. If it wasn’t for the fact that we got this to go, I would have sent the food back. What a total waste of $50.More

My family and I ate here twice during our trip to Canaan Valley last week. We were really impressed with the cleanliness of the place and how careful the staff were about practicing COVID19 guidelines. I had read several poor reviews; glad that I din't...take heed of them! We ate lunch and breakfast and both meals were excellent.More

best place to bring a bus group...we pre-ordered from a preselected meal and they were ready for our group. Spaghetti was top choice for our group and next was the half a BBQ chicken. service is professional and friendly and Quick. Allow time to stroll...the grounds and take in the views.More
