If you are visiting the Bryson City/Cherokee area, this is a good solid place for lunch. Nothing fancy, but why eat at a national chain when you can have a great burger or grilled chicken sandwich and support an independent, locally owned restaurant. This was our second visit to Jimmy Mac's for lunch. We haven't tried it for dinner, but... More

Our dinner there was a taste of a good cooked filling country meal. Our server Betty was very friendly and informative about the local area. If you plan to dine there, consider dining early it appears to be a very popular place.

We enjoyed this restaurant on a previous trip and returned for more good food. The burger my husband ordered was enough for two people! My steak was terrific!
