The food is wonderful here with a nice choice including Trout/Steaks/Virginia Ham. My husband loves the home made fruit cobblers that they do as one of the dessert choices. Friendly staff.

So disappointed. We went to try and have dinner at 8:00 at night. There were 6 empty tables with no one waiting. We were told because we didn't stay at the hotel or had reservations we could not be seated. They said they were "winding it down". Really??? There were only 3 of us and it was only 8:00. Won't...

It's been a couple of years since we've been to the mountains but when we do this is always one of our stops for dinner. I had the pecan crusted trout and like always it was delicious. Service is always great with friendly conversation and smiles. The homemade sides are delicious and the inn is historic. Highly recommended.

My wife and I ended up having dinner at the Fryemont Inn since the restaurant we had planned to go to was closed on Mondays. The Inn is very interesting with all the history of 90 years. It was nice to have dinner in a place that is different than the corporate restaurants. So much character. The experience was reminiscent... More

The Fryemont Inn is a 4th generation Inn with one of the owners as the chef. We didn't have reservations but we were seated right by the fire place.The selection of entrees was wonderful which was a 5 course meal. Every item home made with three vegetables served homestyle. This is a must place to eat while in Bryson City... More

We had a terrific dinner here. Great price for soup, salad, entrée, dessert. You leave full for sure. And, love the atmosphere as the woodland inn, large fireplace, and old time ambience is great to experience. Service was good, food great. We will be back!

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
