Big Meadows Lodge Dining

2016 season ends Nov 6, 10:00 a.m.

Spottswood Dining Room guests savor signature and seasonal specialties like the New Deal Roast Turkey Plate and Roosevelt's Roasted or Fried Chicken - named for Franklin D. Roosevelt, a booster of Shenandoah National Park who delivered the park’s dedication in 1936.

Head to the New Market Taproom for a specialty drink, beer or glass of local wine, good conversation about your national park day, and nightly, family-friendly entertainment deserving of a Presidential salute.

We can even prepare a Picnic To Go if you're in a hurry or want a meal on hand while exploring the park!
