The Food was I'd say pretty Good. The buffet is medium & it sits in the middle of where everyone's trying to either walk to their table or trying to leave. So very tight while your trying to get your food. Not a lit of vegetable choices. Several meat choices. I'd probably return but not a first choice unless more... More

We ate at this restaurant on a Sunday in July traveling home from Gatlinburg, TN. We arrived just as lunch was being placed on the buffet. Everything was extremely fresh. We both had baked ham - which was wonderful, along with all the veggies. Mashed potatoes were really light and fluffy and I loved the creamed corn. They also had... More

The breakfast buffet had: fruit (melon, grapefruit, grapes), cereal, grits, scrambled eggs, homefries, biscuits, sausage gravy, sausage links and patties, bacon, pancakes and syrup. Coffee and juice too. Good enough for me, and the price was right! Service was good. It seemed a mix of locals and tourists. The restaurant is convenient to the casino. I would return - perfect...

Went to Granny's for dinner on a Saturday night based on the reviews on this board. It was crowded and we had to wait for 10 minutes before being seated. Food was okay, typical buffet style food. The fried chicken was tasty...Probably would not eat here again because there are so many other restaurants to try. The buffet was 11.75... More

Decided to take a pit stop at this little restaurant on our way through Cherokee. The server was very nice and did a great job keeping our drinks filled. The buffet was really nice. They had fish, and chicken with vegetables, macaroni and biscuits / cornbread. For dessert they served chocolate pudding, and surprise it had chocolate chips in it!... More

We tried Granny's for breakfast only during our recent stay in Cherokee. The review says it all. Wait staff was friendly and very prompt. The price wasnt too outrageous but the selection was limited. OK for an average meal.

Clean and Friendly Restaurant with a GREAT buffet - lots of choices at a small price. We especially liked the hot roast beef, cut by the Chef and the wonderful side dishes!

Granny's is probably the best country buffet in the Smokey Mountain area. The fried chicken was cooked perfectly, and the cornbread and veggies were also well prepared. The roast beef was tender, lean, and well seasoned. Usually I like gravy or au jus on roast beef, but Granny's was perfect as served. The restaurant was crowded but very clean, and... More

My husband & I ate at Granny's while visiting in that area & it was so good we went back the second night of our trip. It isn't anything fancy but the food is the best home cooking food we have had in a long time. Everything tasted fresh from the garden & cooked very tasty. I would eat there... More

The buffet was pretty basic but tasty. Fried chicken, green beans, roast beef, two kids of potatoes and ribs. Nice salad bar. The staff kept the buffet very well stocked and the food was hot. Server was very attentive. The restaurant was noisy and quite open. Great place for very hungry families dining on a budget looking for something other... More
