Great Buffet!!!

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 !

The restaurant is a local joint. When we went in the expectations were very low low and behold were right. The buffet had comfort food but I felt anything but comfortable. They had what looked liked boiled potatoes but they looked like mush and butter. The salad bar was actually good. The parishable veggies were fresh and tasted good. I... More

While we were driving thru points of interest in Cherokee, we happened upon Granny's. There were a number of cars there... which usually is a sign in a restaurant parking lot that the food would be good. It was.. We will be returning.

If you are looking for a place in Cherokee for good comfort food, this is the place. I have been here many times and have always enjoyed it. The chicken and roast beef are great. As others have said, the wait is not very long if at all.

Initially we tried to have breakfast on the day after Thanksgiving, which was Friday. The sign said they are open on Friday, but they were closed so we tried again Saturday and they were open. Strange. We weren't thrilled that, after leaving Harrah's, it was another buffet. However, the food was great and our server was wonderful. We had a... More

My husband and I spent Thanksgiving this year in Cherokee NC. It was recommended to us to eat at Granny's Kitchen for our TG meal. The wait wasn't too bad. The restaurant is quite large. A variety of traditional Thanksgiving fixins was available. It was reasonably priced and the service was good. Of course, nothing like eating at home but... More
