There are a few places within the Stone Mountain Memorial Park in which a person could get a light snack. Miss Katies Sideboard Restaurant is the only place in the park to get a sit down meal with service. I have eaten here on a couple of occasions and have thoroughly enjoyed the authentic southern cuisine. The pleace is usually busy and one should expect to wait several minutes for a table if you come at lunch time. My grandchildren didn't mind the wait at all because there is a little creek that runs right in front of the restaurant that is perfect for wading (see photo).
Favorite Dish: Every time I've eaten here I've had the southern fried chicken. It's excellent, as well as are the home style vegetables. Alexandria and Nicholas, my grandchildren, especially liked the "Hand Tossed Rolls." The server brings them to your table and then throws them up in the air for you to catch.
Summit Snacks, located beside the aerial tramway at the very peak of Stone Mountain, is a small spot with a limited menu. However, it is a very welcomed place to get a light snack or a cold drink, especially if you have just hiked up from the back side of the mountain on a hot summer day. There are only two ways to get to Summit Snacks, by foot or by taking the tram.
There is limited seating at summit snacks, but the few tables and chairs offer a great view, looking out view through large plate glass windows. Pictured are Alex and Nick having fun with their cherry Icees. Click the hidden photo to get an idea of the view.
Like all tourist attractions, Stone Mountain has a variety of places that serve food. There's nothing fancy here, as you'd expect, and there's only one sit down restaurant in the park. Miss Katie's is the southern restaurant, which advertises "hand tossed biscuits". I'm not sure what hand tossing does for biscuits, but they're supposed to be good. Other than that, there's a barkery, a burger place, fried chicken and a variety of concession counters serving snacks and such.
At the top of Stone Mountain, there is a small cafe which sells food and drinks. It is nothing fancy and definitely overpriced, but a good place to replenish after walking up and/or preparing to walk down. The walk up Stone Mountain is not difficult, but it gets pretty humid in the spring and, especially, in the summer. So you might find yourself wanting a bit of liquid refreshment. Thankfully, the good folks that run the attraction have seen to it that no one will go without.
