Vista Cliffside is known for its panoramic dining room view of the Talladega National Forest and the valley below. We do not take reservations. The dress is casual. Country cooking at its best, but with an amazing salad bar (spring greens and diversity of toppings including healthy choice dressings) is the reason people drive from in and out of state to visit Cheaha State Park.  To go meals are available. Groups of 10 or more please call a few days early with your order.  We will be happy to arrange a buffet or catered meal for large groups. Please contact
