Big Meadows Lodge Dining

Open daily May 10 through November 5, 2017.

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!
