It was season-opening day at Granny's. The place was packed. The entire Fire Department was there. We waited for about 15 minutes and were seated. It was well worth the wait! As a first-time visitor to Cherokee, the sheer volume of people and food was impressive. I will visit again!

If you are looking for some good ole country cooking that is beyond outstanding, then you must go to granny's kitchen. If you want a country cooked breakfast, then you must make a week-end stop at granny's and enjoy that hot bar with country gravy.

This was certainly not the best tasting meal I've had in my entire life. I'm not a buffet person either, so I was surprised when I walked in and realized what I had done. The atmosphere was average and clean. What stood out above all was the friendliness of the staff, from the greeter, waitresses, meat cutter (I'm sure he... More

For quick bite it is pretty good. Medium quality food, medium quality service and friendliness. Just what you would expect from a "good" local country establishment.

We have been visiting Granny's for over 10 years.......always consistently VERY GOOD. Don't know what the dude that reviewed this restaurant on Dec 20 2014 was talking about...

Really enjoyed this restaurant. Ate there for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Great variety of food. Convenient to camping area and Harrah's Gambling Casio. Also conveniently located near the town of Cherokee, NC. They serve a variety of homecooking dishes, as well as healthy choices.

We were traveling in the mountains on hiking trips & found this great buffet restaurant & were so pleased with the food plus price we went there 2 nights on a row. Much better than any other place you can find in & around Cherokee. Including Harrahs.

All the food seemed to be well priced and each potion of food seemed to be very generous.so good in fact if wasn't for the other diners you'd almost want to pick the plate up and completely lick it clean. It was THAT good!

We liked the buffet because we could choose what we liked and there was a variety to choose from. Our dislike i guess would be for us alone. We ate too much !
