You don’t have to be of German descent to enjoy the delicious food and drink at Oktoberfest — especially if you’re celebrating at Skyline Lodge here in Highlands. Mark your calendars, invite your friends to join you, and come out on Sunday, October 9th from 11:30 a.m. until 9:00 p.m. This celebration is “pocketbook friendly.”
For the set price of only $10 for the meal, how can you go wrong?
Master Chef Jimmy Buzza from the famous Karling’s-Inn Restaurant in Deleon Springs, Florida, is preparing many of the delicious foods that we’ve all come to expect from Oktoberfest.
Yes, there will definitely be great German beers too, including Warsteiner — a beer that Germans have cherished since 1753.
Take the short drive out the Cashiers Highway, turn left at Flat Mountain Road and follow the signs. There’s no reason to limit your visits to Skyline to just the Oktoberfest celebration. Any time of year is a good time to visit the Lodge. There’s nothing more relaxing than to drive out for a meal (breakfast, lunch or dinner) or to join friends for a quiet drink on the beautiful stone patio. There are so many wonderful items to choose from. Everything is made from only the freshest ingredients. The pumpkin soup is a real crowd pleaser, as is Foie Gras Pate. With Jimmy’s German background you’ll want to sample the Rahm schnitzel (prime cut veal or pork) served with mushrooms in a creamy white wine sauce. Complete your meal with one of the mouth-watering desserts. Hint: you haven’t had chocolate mousse until you’ve had the Lodge’s mouse.
