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

Really good home cooked food. Nothing fancy. We have been coming here for 20 years every time we come in town we visit Grannys. The first time we went 20 years ago was on Thanksgiving and they were the only restaurant we could find so we tried it. We have been going back faithfully ever since.

Our antique auto club goes to Granny's every year for our club Thanksgiving dinner. We've been doing this for years. Always experience great service and food. There have been close to 100 members there at times, or as few as forty. This is a place everyone enjoys. The service is consistently great (no matter how many of us there are)... More
