Executive Chef Brian Whitson uses locally-sourced ingredients, most from with 117 miles of the restaurant, to craft a menu that has something for everyone, from extra lumpy crab cakes to wood-fired pizza and more.

Regions 117 is truly a treasure, as it is the only venue for lakeside dining in the Valley, located just behind the gates at the dynamic Shenandoah Lodge. We welcome all who enjoy delicious food paired with an uninterrupted view of the 117-acre Lake Frederick from inside, or out on our expansive Veranda.

I made reservations for my husband’s birthday. The kitchen was slightly backed up so we had to wait a few minutes but the whole building is so beautiful so we didn’t mind. All of the staff was amazing, so kind, enthusiastic and attentive! Our server checked on us just enough! I wasn’t sure what I wanted so she suggested the special and I was not disappointed! My husband got the dry aged steak and it was cooked perfectly! Also, do yourself a favor….get the croissant bread pudding. It was phenomenal!! Overall, a wonderful experience!!

Our son and his wife had to leave with their baby right before our order was brought to the table When they returned, the kitchen remade their meals. We thought that was exceptionally generous of the restaurant. Kudos to the kitchen and wait staff The food and service are always great here!

I’ve had almost every offering on the menu, and would have each one again. In fact there are several offerings worth at least monthly visits. Chef Brian and the wait staff are among the best.

We had 2 specials - swordfish salad and pork with white bean cassoulet. Both were outstanding. I hope no one saw me licking my plate at the end of the cassoulet. Once again Chef Brian, Kyle and the Regions 117 team deliver an outstanding dinning experience. And the Zarah's Rioja wine was the perfect pair.

Our compliments to the chef and entire wait staff. We all had a great time and delicious meal. The burgers were cooked to perfection, the pork ribeye was super tender with wonderful light BBQ flavor and the spicy Italian pizza was perfect. !

This was my first visit to Region’s 117 and I will definitely return. The food, service, and ambiance were exceptional. As a pescatarian, I found many choices on the lunch menu. The prices were quite reasonable which is always a plus when dining out. Sitting outdoors with a view of the lake was delightful.

Overall it was an awesome experience, the only negative we have to give is, we made a reservation 3 weeks in advance and still had to wait at least 40 min for a table. What the heck? That’s why you make reservations I thought, unless I’m missing something?
Food was definitely worth the wait . Will return again!!

We have gone to Region’s 117 many times and have never been disappointed! We ate outside on the deck/patio and it was a perfect evening. Nat was our server and I give her 5+ stars; super attentive, right on top of things, and a warm, fun, bubbly personality. The food was amazing-as always. I just love this place! We had a great night with friends.

We went for our anniversary. Made a reservation ahead of time. We sat on the deck outside. It was really nice. Our first time there. I had the beef short rib bourguignon. My girl had a burger. The waitress was very pleasant and there were fans, so it wasn’t hot. Will definitely go again.

Delicious! I had the rare tuna tacos and husband had the wagu burger. Awesome! Started off with fried pickles. Amazing! Shared a bowl of halibut soup. I think it was halibut. In any case Wow! Finished with crime brûlée and chocolate torte. We dined on the patio overlooking the lake and got to watch a bridal party take their pictures. Excellent meal and experience. Can’t wait to go back!

Prime rib was overcooked but chef replaced it. Extra very large tables have been added to provide more seating which is helpful for large parties. Our table was a bit oversized for just five of us.
