Big Meadows Lodge Dining

2019 Season Opening May 8

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.

Opt for fresh air with our new pet-friendly outdoor Terrace Seating (weather permitting). Or, stop by our front desk to request a Boxed Lunch if you're in a hurry or want a meal on hand while exploring the park!
