Ridgecrest’s Dining Room offers three nutritious buffet-style meals daily.* Our chefs select carefully planned menus prepared with high quality brands and locally sourced ingredients. The Dining Room was designed with efficiency in mind, and includes eight serving lines to accommodate large groups quickly. With seating capacity for over 1,000 people, 5’ round tables and 8’ rectangular tables provide guests with a comfortable setting for fellowship and conversation. The Dining Room is centrally located within Rhododendron, ensuring guests a short walk from virtually every lodging venue.
