    The server like dinner prior was wonderful. The food just fell short in terms of portion size and quality. The breakfast potatoes tasted like they were frozen from a bag, felt the same about the gravy. Bacon was just way over cooked. For the price the portions and the quality was just not there. The server did her best for us.

    Our server was great! The young man was cheerful, smiling and attentive. Getting drinks was tough. 20 min or more to get a mixed drink from bar for our waiter. One bartender in the bar was not enough to get the drinks for both the bar and restaurant. Food was tasty but the portion size for the main dish was a bit disappointing. The dessert however was amazing!!! Coffee took about 25-30 min to get. Mixed review all around… our server saved the day for us! Breakfast was the same. Nobody to seat us and a few couples stood waiting to get checked in for reservations for breakfast when there was 75% empty tables. Food was okay. Our server was wonderful. One thing they have is friendly staff !!

    Previous buffets that we had been to there the food was much better and had a bigger selection. We would really like to see just the seafood buffet come back. In this area there isn't a lot of places to get seafood that is good. It took about 15 to 20 minutes to get drinks and beer. Ended up going to the bar to get beers while we waited on the ones we ordered. It wasn't really all that busy either so I know that wasn't the issue and I would be more understanding if it had been. Honestly the best thing was the music. I would come back just to see them Really enjoyed Unpaid Professionals.

    I love Mountsin Laje, and I think all of their special events are fun, and I enjoy them. I do have to be honest about the buffet. The food was not good. The food temp was barely warm, and most of the items were bland in taste. I used to love the buffet when they first started doing it, but the quality has really gone down over the past few years. I miss the cheese and fruit bar with the salmon, capers, cream cheese, and crackers amongst other features. The live music however, was awesome! I would come back to hear the group from last night, but order from the bar instead of the restaurant. For $40 a person, I would like to enjoy my food more than I did last night. Still love Mountain Lake and I will go back!

    We visited for New Year's Eve and the food and service was amazing. We loved all the appetizers, however everyone agreed the fried green tomatoes were the star of the appetizers. The main courses were so delicious and the dessert was to die for. We got to sit at the "Houseman's" table and loved it. I highly recommend visiting the lodge and the Harvest restaurant.

    The food was not very good and service was slow. I’m hoping it was just because it was off season. It’s a beautiful place so I hope they can improve the food to make it worth the drive.

    We came for lunch and were not disappointed. We both had the chicken fried steak and shared a fresh mixed side salad that our server AJ was able to suggest, instead of the Caesar salad on the menu. Portions were large, took home leftovers. AJ had lots of history on the Lodge to share, the dining room has a panoramic view of the grounds. Enjoyed the company of several fellow diners we met during our first visit this Christmas season. The Lodge itself has very warm vibe. They're not enough good restaurants in rural SW Va, but this is one. Worth the scenic drive. We'll be back.

    Harvest is a beautiful venue and was decorated nicely for Christmas. Unfortunately, the food was just ok, especially for the price. The staff was friendly, but I think they were shorthanded, as it took over an hour to get our meals.

    Service was sub par. Took 2.5 hours for dinner. They were out of many items. Butternut squash ravioli was inedible. Charcuterie board was very disappointing. 3 types of cheddar just cut in different shapes and some cubed swiss. Of the 5 meals ordered only 2 were satisfactory .

    Our waiter was great. Food is great, I always get the crab cake and mashed potatoes which is delicious. The prices are high for the entrees as it is only the meat and no sides. You have to pay extra for your sides. Beautiful place. The Christmas lights were pretty. Will definitely be back.

    Was a brunch with Santa but didn’t feel geared to children at all. Minimal food choices for kids. No pancakes, etc. no crayons or activities for children. Santa came around briefly selling tickets to his cabin.

    My 92 yr old mother wanted to try lunch at Harvest. We drove 1.5 hrs. to get there. The food was satisfactory but the service was awful. The place only had 3 tables of guest and one waiter and one waitress. So there should have been excellent service. There are to many things to explain in this review that were horrible. But it started out with me getting ice tea with one small piece of ice. Needs to be way more training involved for the wait staff.
