We have been coming to Bryson City each summer for the past 25 years. We always plan a family dinner night at the Fryemont. We love the family style dishes. A favorite this year were the Lima beans. Baked apples are always welcomed. You won't be disappointed with any of the trout options. We all... read more

The food and the service here is top shelf all the way. Prime Rib is five star quality. We found all of the staff ready to go out of the way to make this a memorable experience.

Charming romantic dining experience with delicious food and exceptional service. Our favorites: sugar ham, blackened fish and best blackberry cobbler in North Carolina!

These were the best meals in Bryson City, probably in the surrounding areas, and could compete with restaurants in the larger cities. We spent 3 nights at the Fryemont Inn which included breakfast and dinner in the package (more than reasonably priced!) and would not want to eat anywhere else. The breakfast by far exceeds any hotel and was both... More

Very good food, very good portions. It is surprising to find this quality in a small town. Pleasant service ... we had a great experience. The big fireplace is a great feature.

We have been going to Bryson City for over 15 years and this was our first visit to Fryemont Inn Dining Room. It was a really nice experience and we will definitely be going back.

Lovey historic Inn is tucked into the hills of Bryson City. We arrived early, met the owner who offered us a cup of coffee and a rocker on the large porch to watch the incoming afternoon storm. Spectacular! We went into the warm hickory wood paneled lounge and sat next to the fireplace to enjoy a glass of wine and... More

Our family had a delectable Father’s Day dinner at the Fryemont that we all thoroughly enjoyed. Understand that you will dine in a magnificent old dining room that is reminiscent of dinning in some of the more rustic old rooms found in our national parks. Service was friendly and attentive when needed. The meal included a soup to nuts menu... More

One of the things we enjoy most about staying at the Fryemont is the Dining room and bar. We always start our evenings at the bar, which is a cross between a bar in Dirty Dancing and a bar in Little Five Points in Atlanta. This is one of our favorite bars in the world to hang out having a... More

Food is good and most of our large group enjoyed the experience. Worth a single visit -but the price really bites for bringing the entire family (we had three 14 year old girls that barely touched the entree).
