"The food, staff, views - everything about this place is awesome. I can't wait to live there and be able to visit this place on a regular basis."
"Everything is just beautiful. Easy check in, clean and cool cabin, good food, friendly people, the scenery is beautiful!! Only here for 1 night, but I could spend more here!!!"
This was a terrific stop! One of us had a pizza, another a really good hamburger and I had the Summer Strawberry Salad! I saw on the menu they had grit croutons which I had never heard of but I asked to add them to my salad and they were awesome! Very southern addition! Beautiful view, excellent service and great food!
Beautiful setting and super-friendly staff make the Tapoca Lodge one of our favorite weekend getaways. Sit outside along the river, enjoy one of their regional beers, and have a burger or pizza.
The staff were friendly & service was very good. My wife's Ruben Sandwich was supreme & loaded with corned beef. I had the wood fired pizza and it was outstanding - and this comes from a pizza connoisseur!
Everything we had from the restaurant during our stay was perfectly prepared, including some terrific New York Strip steak. Breakfast was a treat. The staff was so friendly and helpful. We felt so at home.
I give them a thumbs up on service and quality of the food. Great place to relax! We rode motorcycles all weekend and we like to stop here for pizza and beer. The lodge is very clean and nice inside. Outside is just as beautiful sitting right on the river.
Our family of 12 had a fantastic dinner at Tapoco Lodge over the Thanksgiving holiday. We sat outside overlooking the beautiful creek running behind the lodge. The patio was beautifully decorated for Christmas and had ample heaters to keep us warm. We enjoyed delicious pizza for dinner! What a fun, unique and wonderful place to enjoy time together as a family!
