Cumberland Mountain State Park Opens New Restaurant Patio for the Summer

June 3, 2016  |  Permalink

Cumberland Mountain State Park celebrated the opening of a new restaurant patio with a ribbon cutting ceremony on Friday, May 27.

"While the Homestead Harvest Restaurant has been a successful operation within the park for decades, the adjacent patio has been underutilized,” said Deputy Commissioner for Parks and Conservation Brock Hill. “Guests can now dine or enjoy a beverage of their choice on the patio overlooking beautiful Byrd Lake.”

State Park leaders also recognized Tennessee Brew Works for their support. The craft brewery from Nashville has designated June as Tennessee State Parks month, when $1 of every pint sold on Sundays will benefit the Friends of Tennessee State Parks organization. The taproom is also displaying photography of iconic Tennessee State Park landscapes, featuring works by Jason Allen, Robin Conover, Tim Gillahan and Peter Koczera all month-long.

"Tennessee Brew Works is a perfect fit for Tennessee State Parks,” said Hill. “Their brewing processes include sustainable efforts to conserve energy and reduce waste; something all of our 56 State Parks are committed to doing.”

The Homestead Harvest Restaurant offers lunch and dinner as well as special buffets on Father’s Day and other holidays. The restaurant is open Sundays from 11 a.m.-8 p.m. and Tuesday-Saturday from 11 a.m.-2:30 p.m. for lunch and 4-8 p.m. for dinner. Cumberland Mountain State Park is located at 24 Office Dr. in Crossville. CLICK HERE for more information, including menus.

Tennessee Brew Works is located at 809 Ewing Ave. in Nashville. Sunday hours are 11 a.m.-8 p.m. for those wanting to support Tennessee State Parks month. For more information, visit
