Maggie Valley is a treasure. Anyone who visits this small valley town knows this. They have many small shops, restaurants, and in the winter, skiing. For the past six years or so, this is my family's favorite restaurant when we visit Maggie Valley. Butt's On the Creek is a unique dining experience... read more

Good BBQ. The atmosphere of the restaurant seemed nice, but we ordered take-out because we had our dogs with us.

Finished up horseback riding and needed some lunch. This place has a catchy name and loved that it was on the creek. It's a nice place. The food was okay. I got the pulled pork sandwich, hubby got pulled brisket. It wasn't as moist as we're used to and the sauce was okay. The sweet molasses is very strong molasses.... More

Great atmosphere, good food, good local service, and quick! The BBQ is good and smokey flavored. I would prefer the sauce be cooked into the meat, but understand the variety of tastes they have to try and satisfy.

We tried to get into the parking lot (which is not easy) after some rude people refused to let us park our handicap child close. But we decided to not let that stop us. We went in and a young lady (I did not get her name) was working the front. She took her time and explained the specials and... More

The cabin like setting with a creek side view made for the perfect setting for dining. I ordered a hamburger that was served on an onion bun with fried corn on the cob. It was hot and delicious. The lemonade was homemade. Our family will definitely eat there again.

Rustic atmosphere, but bar-b-q is quite good. We hated the Squash Casserole was taken off the menu, for it was delicious. Service is good, and we will go back!

We never really heard much positive about this restaurant while in the area, and now we know why. They have a smoker out front that they burn wood in to rope in the tourists. Great idea and it works. Unfortunately the food is not good. We smoke our own food (pork, beef, chicken and sausage) every week, so we feel... More
