My husband and I visited Granny's Kitchen for lunch today. It was extremely busy, but we were seated right away. Our friendly server took our drink orders ($1.79 extra) and told us to head to the buffet when we were ready. There is no menu service and dessert is also extra. The buffet was not extensive, but was very good... More

If you are looking for good quality home cooked food then this is the place. It only offers a buffet for a set price but there is a good choice - soup or salad to start, a choice of fried chicken, roast beef and another (we went twice and the first time it was baked ham and pineapple the next...

In Cherokee you don't have a lot of choices. Fast food, the casino, a couple other places. We tried Granny's and were glad we did. The help was very friendly and the food was quite good. I believe we paid $12 for the buffet with water as a beverage. The chicken and red potatoes were especially good. Most of the... More

My husband and I were looking for a place to eat after gambling, and were bummed to learn that Cherokee doesn't offer many places to eat, so he mapped out this place. It didn't seem too appealing when we got there. Walked in and they only have one buffet table, salad bar on one end, a few food items in... More

Food was great except for the beef (carved) it was tough and neither my wife nor I could eat it. The Fried chicken was delicious. Salad bar was fresh and plentiful. Our waitress could have been better. She was like a social butterfly. Had to go to cashier and tell her what we had, after waiting for our waitress to... More

I was not impressed with our visit at all. The service was very good, but the food was just OK. They were doing a buffet, but there were very few choices. The roast beef and the stew were OK, but the fried chicken was very bland (these were the only meat choices). I did like the mashed potatoes and macaroni,... More

Thank you for dining at Granny's. We don't claim to be a mega buffet, but try to include something for everyone, and our menu changes daily. Our fried chicken is cooked Southern style, so thiis type of cooking may not be a favorite for all. We do appreciate your business! More

We stopped for lunch and the buffet was what was offered. It was okay but extremely limited in selection. I think four vegetables, three meats, one desert, and no salad. Price was okay ($8 plus drink cost) which made it not a bad stop.

Granny's is just over the mountain from Maggie Valley and well worth the drive. Hands down the best fried chicken anywhere in the area. We operate a motel in Maggie and pay someone to fill in so we can go to Granny's. The food and service are great and our guests always thank us for the recommendation. Kudos to management... More
