Attraction Reviews

Renfro Valley Lodge Restaurant

I was fortuntate enough to be invited to have lunch at the famous Lodge Restaurant in Renfro Valley yesterday by a friend.   The atmosphere is charming.  Greeted at the front door by friendly, smiling young ladies who made our group feel right at home.  Service was fast and the food was excellent.   The chef made a special effort to come to our table and welcome each of us and shake our hands.  He was delightful. 

Did I mention the prices were great for me.  Stop by off exit 62 off I-75.  You will not be disappointed.
