Great facilities, scenic view over General Butler State Park. Buffet dinner and menu make any decisions easy on the customer. Can't go wrong not having to leave the Resort for a meal.

Stayed two nights for a quick retreat. Ate two breakfasts and a lunch buffet. Breakfast was good but muffins on sandwich hard. Gourmet Coffee excellent. Lunch buffet excellent. Large selection salad bar with several blocks of cheese and fruits. Fried chicken delish, and pork too. Only thing bland was corn. Nice touch is ice cream self serve sundae bar. Even... More

We used to love to eat at the lodge. When we were there in the fall of 2015 - the manager was unpleasant and wouldn't even listen to our complaints. Just turned his back. We told him we planned to call the State Park office and he laughed! The food was cold, and there was evidently another event going on... More

I want to like this place, but it is a mere shadow of what it used to be. Kentucky state parks used to have head chefs and impressively prepared food from a menu. And the Sunday buffet was amazing back in the day. Now, like everything else, KSP have gone completely low rent in their dining rooms. The buffet is... More

The food was cold and not fresh. The price of the food equals the quality, Cheap. When you order the food of the menu, it takes forever to get your food, everyone I was with was finish by the time I got my food. It has potential to be great. The view is fantastic but not worth it. I will... More

Just completed a very dissapointing buffet meal. Shrimp tough. Gravy cold. Meatloaf old. Now...the salad bar has a variety of fresh veggies and cantalope. Management did not seem to care. Had to be my worst meal out in many years.

It is pretty typical of most Kentucky State Park restaurants. Buffet style most of the time. Prices are a little high for what you get, but it is a very nice atmosphere and the staff is friendly. Have been there a number of times, food is average, but the burger from their menu is very good.

A nautical themed restaurant with homemade food with a gorgeous view of the river. Very relaxing. Good service and good food. Very reasonable pricing, too! A little hard to find, but well worth the trip

We had the buffet when we were there and it was simple fare such as a salad bar and a hot bar with mashed potatoes, green beans, corn, chicken, etc. there was cobbler and ice cream for dessert. There was nothing fancy about the food and not a huge selection but it was very good and reasonably priced. The only... More

The menu is definitely American, nothing fancy, but well done and a good value for the quality. Service was prompt and friendly. I wanted to go back the next day. Having a nice place like this was a relief, since there isn't anything except basic pizza, Chinese and Mexican for miles around. Ambience is simple, sort of quaint rustic, and... More
