The BBQ food is great too. Really, the Blue Moon on drought is priced well. All home-made sides, ribs 'n' chicken are outstanding. Portions are reasonable but a couple of more ribs would be better. The ribs are large for baby back but they are very tasty. Great bartenders and good service.

Amazing food, service and room. We stayed for 4 nights and had dinner at the Mountaineer. Excellent and I'm a very picky eater. They really try to meet any food needs you have.

For my 2nd 'girls getaway' in Old Forge, I went with the tavern at the Northwoods Inn primarily due to the fact that they had a deck overlooking fourth lake. We previously decided to eat at the tavern vs. their restaurant due to the fact that we wanted something light and that ended up being the only choice anyways due... More
