Other than bringing your own picnic, the only place to eat at or near Carter Caves State Resort Park is in the 100 seat Caveland Lodge Dining Room. Large plate glass windows here give a pretty view of the surrounding woodland. In the snow we especially enjoyed watching the birds which flocked to the feeders just outside the windows.
Favorite Dish: Down home country cooking. A good selection of meats, vegetables, breads, salads, and desert on the buffet.
This is the only choice you have as far as eating out goes. The dining room is informal and comfortable. While the menu isn't large, you will be able to find something to fit everyone's taste.
