Surprising Salmon

My mom and I went to RJ's for lunch Sunday. I ordered the grilled salmon and was just expecting it to be okay but it was excellent. It had a great lemony taste! It was grilled perfectly, very flaky and moist inside. Mom had the sirloin tips and wanted them medium, they were a little more done... read more

We were taking friends to the Knoxville Airport and we were looking for a place to eat. We found this restaurant by mistake and it was really good. Better than any of the junky fast food places on the road there.

One of the last restaurants that do most everything from scratch. Homemade rolls, homemade dressings, hand breaded chicken tenders, etc. The prime rib is delicious and by far, the best in the area. Service was outstanding! Will definitely be going back soon!!

Love the salads, rolls and fried green tomatoes. I took out-of-town friends there recently. They were amazed with the fried pickles and the prime rib.

Choose wisely here...the rolls are excellent, but the breaded and fried foods are heavy and left our family feeling quite sickened. Also, the steak tips were too, too full of gristle. Food was not worth the money this particular trip.

Located on Alcoa highway in a locals favorite. Wonderful food and exceptional service is a trade mark. Located on the way to Cades cove or the Great Smoky Mountains this is a ideal family place to eat

We were invited to join friends for dinner out, RJ's is not in our area, so we had not been there. Our meals were absolutely delicious! I had a steak flatbread that was so so yummy. My sweetheart had a BLT with Fried Green Tomatoes. He was thrilled. Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. We will go again.

We took a big family outing to the Courtyard Grille, I was really wondering if it would be a mistake. Our waiter started out a little shaky, 2 of us, me included ordered sweet tea, he brought back unsweetened, then when we returned it he was a while coming back. After that it was all good. The food was absolutely... More

Passed by this one on the hwy, looked over at the neon lights and decided it was a "Gentlemen's Club". My daughter's opinion not mine! We made a u-turn checked it out again and decided it was a restaurant. The parking lot was pretty full, a good sign. Once seated we couldn't decide if it used to be a steak... More

We stopped in yesterday for a quick lunch as we were running errands and had a busy day ahead of us. Our "quick lunch" was over 2 hours. There was only 4 of us and we ordered straight from the menu with nothing quirky. The waitress was very nice just a little goofy. We had 4 baskets of bread spaced... More
