Good Southern home cooking

The buffet was filled with meat and vegetables my grandmother would have presented at Sunday lunch (except for the fried trout). There was fried chicken and a roast beef carving station, a good salad bar and vegetables such as new potatoes,whole-kernel corn and fried okra. The servers are friendly.

This is a buffet style restaurant only. It has a very large variety of foods. All the items my husband and I tried were very good. We both highly recommend this place.

Great food. We usually do not like buffet food, but this is good home cooked food. Always fresh, never cold.

My husband and I enjoy eating at Granny's and since it's only a little over an hour away we go fairly often. We have never been disappointed and if you enjoy southern cooking at it's best then you will enjoy this locally owned restaurant. You will see local folks and tourists alike here. The servers are friendly and take good... More

Do not try to compare it to Harrah's buffet because its not even close. That being said, you are also not... More

We were in Cherokee at lunchtime after visiting Clingman's Dome, and decided to try Granny's based on the crowded parking lot. It is a big place, but on Sunday at 1:30 we had a 20 minute wait for a table. Our server was a sweet, young Cherokee girl, and she did a good job. The buffet itself is not that... More

Price was right but a very small buffet. Not much to choose from. Roast beef would have been better if serve hot. Staff was nice.

Granny really puts it out there. If you go away hungry, it is not Granny's fault! This was a help yourself buffet. And it was a BIG buffet complete with desserts. My only problem was eating a bit too much. Good food, good service, even though the place was busy, busy.
