At South Holston River Lodge we take our food just as seriously as we take our fishing.
We may not always have control over the weather conditions and fishing, but your meals
and accommodations we do our best to make it perfect every time. We have a full time executive
chef on staff 8 months a year, March- October, along with a breakfast cook, and two
servers to take care of you during meals.
Our Executive Chef, Dakota Windsor, started with us during the 2016 season.
Dakota studied at the Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts in Scottsdale, AZ where
he sharpened his skills as a professional chef. After school Dakota worked several jobs
here in the tri-cities area preparing meals for different businesses. He has brought a great
new aspect to our dining room with virtually everything being homemade. There are some
hints of French cuisine along with our local Appalachian cuisine that make for a unique
and unforgettable dining experience!
Meals are included in our all-inclusive packages and can also be added to a cabin rental
if there are meals being served at that time. If you are interested you may ask a manager
at the time of booking if meals are an option. Our menu changes with the season giving
you something a little different each time you dine with us. You have a choice between two
entrees for dinner each evening along with a choice of a sandwich or wrap in your lunch
on the river. In the mornings we have a large buffet ready along with daily specials.
Our evenings start at 6pm with hors d'oeuvres and cocktail hour. Hors d'Oeuvres hour consists of two hot appetizers and two cold appetizers and arrange from crab stuffed mushrooms to Dakotas' homemade smoked salmon spread.
We sit down for dinner at 7pm with soup or salad followed by your entree choice which typically consists of a protein prepared to your liking and two complimentary sides. We finish it off with a beautiful and delicious homemade dessert.
The buffet style breakfast starts at 7am and stays hot until you are ready to depart for your day of fishing. Be prepared for a wide variety of breakfast items and eggs to order!
During your pre-check in phone call that all of our guests receive before there arrival to the lodge we will make sure there are no dietary restrictions or food allergies that we need to be aware of. Please let us know if there is something you do not particularly enjoy or if you would like to hear the menu before your arrival and we will accommodate you.
We know what it takes to make a meal special and unforgettable for every guest.
Feel free to contact us if you have any other questions concerning lodge cuisine.
