Loved the historic, old world atmosphere but the food was just fair. The trout (best part of the meal) was tasty but overcooked. The okra & green broad beans were listless. Mashed potatoes passable. Shortbread had pretty good flavor. Service was fine. Very relaxing environment and its interesting to check out some of the memorabilia. The overall experience is rather... More

I enjoyed my prime rib dinner at the Fryemont (part of the lodging package), which I ate by the fireside on a wild and stormy night. The same waitress was friendly and helpful both at dinner and breakfast, the latter providing an appetising start to the day. The bar experience was also good with a knowledgeable barman and good local... More

Built by a local timber baron in 1927 in which you feel like you are stepping back in time - which some will like and some will not. All wood - floors, walls, ceilings - with large stone fireplaces in the restaurant and lobby. Entrees (trout & prime rib) were excellent, sides (served separately and shared family style) were fair... More

This dining room came highly recommended; but I was a little dissapointed. First, when calling to see if we could make reservations the lady who answered the phone got a little snippy. But, since there were very few options in town we went ahead and proceeded with making reservations. The menu is not very vast. You pretty much choose a... More

We had dinner at this restaurant for our last night in Bryson City. The dining room was very cozy with it's lodge-like atmosphere. The trout was excellent and the family style sides were very good. Dinner is a very good value as it includes soup, salad, entrée and dessert for one price (roughly $20). Service was excellent as our waitress,... More

We always enjoy an outing to this venerable Inn/Restaurant. Instead of eating in the dining hall, they provide a limited menu to eat in the rustic bar area. You still get selections of their finer entrees such as prime rib and their pecan encrusted trout. Service is casual, there are a couple of TVs for football or other sports. There... More

Interesting menu with local favorites and fish. Homemade appeal. Family style service, great desserts. Rustic wood cabin feel. 10 ft. fireplace. Food was good and plentiful.

It's an old hotel/restaurant. The entrance has an oder of mildew, but not in the restaurant. The tables are covered in oilcloth (didn't think that still existed). The cost is good because it's all inclusive, soup, salad, entree and dessert. Definitely average.

Iconic. Big dining room, small menu, but you can't make a bad choice and would be hard pressesd to walk in wanting something they wouldn't offer. Sides are family style and refilled as much as needed. The sides are honestly so good, ordering them as a meal wouldn't be a mistake. But then how would I get my pecan trout?... More

We had such a good time visiting this place. The building is so interesting, the dining room and bar area are so relaxed. The food is very good, it is served family style, very fresh.
