Lake dining can range from rustic watering holes to fine dining, and Grand Lake O’ the Cherokees has it all.

After taking a recent spin around the lake, we profiled six of the most notable restaurants, including two on the south side, one in Grove and three in and around Monkey Island. We also added suggestions for additional restaurants spanning the lake.

Before planning a trip, it would be best to go online or call the restaurants to confirm their hours, which can vary seasonally.
