Family style dining -- not what I really expected

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).

Everyone needs to try the pecan crusted trout. Save room for desserts.....if you are a guest at the inn, the meals come with the room. Don't forget to tip though!

Suggested by all we met on our trip, even our neighbor said you must go here when in Bryson City. Glad we listened, dining room was booked so Amanda set us up with menus in the bar....best idea! Loved that we talked to everyone in the bar, steak and prime rib was perfect! Court yard with cocktails was relaxing and... More

There wasn't anything to dislike. Service timed perfectly, friendly service personnel. The menu has great choices of rainbow trout, beef, lamb and pork. The vegie selection is perfect and desserts to die for. The bar is fully stocked and the coffee is excellent.

Very nice to have some well prepared fish for dinner - go for the trout as it seems to be their speciality. Overall it felt like a bit of a throwback to the 1980's - only served a four course dinner, other than the fish the selections felt a little dated. I'm 50+ but felt like a kid in the... More

An earlier reviewer noted "I don't think we ever waited more than 5 minutes, if at all, between courses" and seemed to like that. In our case, it's the reason for dropping a rating from four to three stars. The restaurant wasn't all that busy. We weren't even close to the fireplace and there was no one waiting for a... More

When we walked in I liked the place. Cute, homey feeling dining room with a large fireplace! Server was friendly and attentive but food was overpriced for breakfast and sub par. My breakfast potatoes had no seasoning at all and were cold and dry. They tasted days old. My omelet was fine once I salted it but not hot either.... More

Didn't make a reservation but they got us a table anyway. Food was good, service was excellent, timing was perfect. We enjoyed a four course meal and I don't think we ever waited more than 5 minutes, if at all, between courses. You have to get a drink with Sarg at the bar before sitting down for dinner. He is...
