Try the Trout, it will make you shout with delight!

I made reservations for a group of 17 for a July 23rd business dinner. LUCKILY I called that afternoon to ensure all was set for this important reservation and to inquire about the beer selection. The man that answered the phone tell me, "We're not open today." I said, "What? I have a reservation for 17 people in two hours."... More

Great Mom and Pop type restraunt in Bryson City. Really great variety of burgers, Boy are they delicious! Their steaks are wonderful too. Plenty of food for the price. Don't be in a hurry instead relax and enjoy the atmosphere. Be sure to get there early if going for dinner as there is usually a wait line around 6:00. The... More

Based on reviews & recommendations we enjoyed lunch here. Good food and nice service. Need to get rid of the baskets they serve the food in. I didn't really care for the brioche bun but the Dixie burger was very moist and tasty and cooked to a perfect medium as I requested.

If you order the bison burger, don't order medium. Kool place with a funky old time feel. The elk burger was surprisingly very tasty.

As a Tampa, Fl native I remember Jimmy Mac's and the food was always delicious. They did it right back than and they continue to do so in Bryson City! It is a small quaint restaurant with big taste. The dishes we had were Fried Shrimp, the SOS plate (fried shrimp, oysters, and scallops), Chicken Alfredo, and Pasta Primavera. The... More

There are a few good places to eat in Bryson City but this is one of the best and most popular so get there early or plan on a little wait. We had steak which was cooked perfect and seemed like double the size listed on the menu. Staff was friendly and service was quick. If we vist Bryson City... More
