Watauga Lake is bridged by Tennessee State Route 67 at Butler Bridge just as the watercourse enters Carter County, Tennessee. The Appalachian Trail crosses the Watauga River at Watauga Dam.
This 6,340-acre lake was
formed after the 1948 completion
of Watauga Dam by the Tennessee
Valley Authority (TVA). Note the overlook
opportunities as you’re passing by.
The resort has a full-service marina, boat, cabin and
motel rentals, swimming pool
and a delicious restaurant, all of
which offer breathtaking views of one of the
country’s most scenic lakes. Captain’s Table
has a varied menu and banquet facilities.
If you're hungry after a long day on the water, pull up a chair at the Captain's Table, Lakeshore Resort & Marina's restaurant with a breathtaking view of the lake. The Captain's Table specializes in seafood and also serves tasty steaks, chicken and specials of the day such as crab cakes, seafood platters and fresh fried oysters. The Captain's Table is open March through October.
We feature seafood specials daily and children's menus are also available. You can also arrive by boat and dock at the pier below the restaurant.
