Every time me and my husband come to Cherokee we come to Newfound for the amazing buffet and (usually) friendly costumer service. However this time we were highly disappointed.

This was a nice surprise. The breakfast buffet at Newfound Lodge Restaurant was awesome! The variety and selection was way above par and the food quality was wonderful. The price was more than reasonable. I thoroughly enjoyed the meal here!
