Lake Barkley Lodge Restaurant

We ate at this restaurant on site three times during our trip and enjoyed it each time. We were always seated by a window, with a view of the covered deck and lake:

I couldn't resist the fried catfish for our first meal and wasn't disappointed. I had pinto beans, onion rings, and -of course- hush puppies. Very tasty:

The next time, I had the club sandwich:

And we ate breakfast there before checking out on our last day:

Afterwards, we spent some time rocking on the deck and enjoying the scenery one last time before our departure:

You can see the trails I walked here and here, and you can see photos of the bison from our Land Between the Lakes side trip tomorrow. We did have a fun time, but then we always have a fun time. We agree with Dr. Seuss: "It is fun to have fun, but you have to know how." Wherever you are, there's fun to be had.

Please join the T Tuesday gathering hosted by Bleubeard and Elizabeth and share a drink with us.


  1. All the meals look delicious and I can imagine sitting on that covered deck and enjoying the view. What a great quote. That one is going in my inspiration file.

  2. I was delighted to see all these meals you had at that lodge. Those hush puppies looked a bit dark to me. Of course, I could take or leave them, but the fish looked absolutely incredible. And of course, that omelet looked extra yummy. I was struch by the different coffee cups they used. Looks like a fun place to eat and even greater place to visit.

    Thanks for sharing all these meals (and drinks, of course) with us for T this Tuesday. Do you need me to link you?

    1. I had a family member undergo a heart catheterization and have been hovering over him for the last couple of days. Everything turned out perfect, but I'm just now getting to visit the links. I'm observing T Thursday this week. :)

  3. I love hush puppies, and you can't find them up here in New Hampshire at all. I have a couple of recipes and one of these days I am going to try them. Maybe today since you've jogged my memory. Your meals look yummy, and I lvoe the view you had too. Happy T day-Hugs-Erika

  10. all of These dishes look so yummy and i would love to spend some time in the chairs with the great view!

  11. The food looks delicious! Are those scones on the plate with your omelet? Chrisx

  12. Great looking food. I love that area!!! My family is from Kentucky and several of them live on Kentucky Lake.. living there long enough that they got the land for a steal because who wants land that is so close to a lake that rises and falls with the weather right :) And the TVA made it sound so unpredictable and unsafe to live there. Now their lots are worth a fortune if the ever choose to sell which I don't see happening anytime at all.

  13. You and Dr Seuss are right :-)
    Fun Fun Fun.
    Oh that porch with the view of the lake would make one want to never leave.
    Extra special to get to enjoy those yummy meals with a lovely view too.
    Sorry I'm late to wish you Happy T Day computer issues about drove me crazy all week.
