Cuisine Beyond Compare

Due to COVID restrictions, The Eseeola Lodge is currently closed to the public.

When you stay at The Eseeola Lodge, breakfast and dinner are included, but guests staying elsewhere are always welcome at our table, too—because we wouldn't want you to miss out on The Eseeola dining experience. (Just be sure to make a reservation.)

Four courses. Seven entrées. Seasonal sensations.

Every evening at The Eseeola, Executive Chef Patrick Maisonhaute and his exceptional staff prepare a sumptuous four-course meal with a choice of seven entrées (and an incredible wine list). Chef Maisonhaute's expertly crafted menu always features local and seasonal flavors—including the selections at our renowned seafood buffet on Thursdays. Dinner reservations are required, and gentlemen, please wear a coat

Relaxed Atmosphere. Casual Dining. Lobster Ravioli. Need we say more?

Some evenings you just want to unbutton and unwind. The Red Fox Tavern offers guests an alternative dining option most Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Located in the the hotel, the newly decorated space suggests a more relaxed approach to dining at The Eseeola. The pub-inspired fare is uncomplicated, but boasts all the flavor you would expect from Chef Maisonhaute. Best of all, the attire is resort casual—no coat for the gentlemen. Call ahead to check schedule. First come, first serve seating.


With so much to see and do at The Eseeola, we understand if you just want to grab a quick bite on your way out the door. Otherwise, please take a leisurely breakfast in the Lodge dining room. (Resort casual wear is appropriate for daytime meals. Please note The Grill is only open to guests of The Eseeola Lodge and Linville Golf Club members.)
