Food was OK, but service was horrible. Starting with the very rude gatekeeper at the bottom of the mountain, who wouldn’t let us up the mountain until 1 hour before our reservation. We had planned to walk around a little and enjoy a cocktail, but...More

This was my first trip to McCloud Mountain; my relatives who live in the area make the trip regularly with house guests. It does require a reservation to access the mountain top, although we were able to ring in the late morning and make a...More

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. The meals were delish and the service was good - not great as they got busier after we were served. I got grilled shrimp which were large (as advertised)and perfectly done with asparagus and a baked potato. My daughter got...More

We had a party of nine up there last night. We drove over to the skywalk first and took lots of pics, the views were incredible. The food and service was mediocre at best, and slow most of the time.

It was out first time going - we arrived about 30 minutes early for the lunch reservation and we're seated right away. Our server was Joannie, who was fantastic. The food was excellent - our group had grouper, sirloin burgers, turkey/dressing and BBQ. The fried...More
