Pleasant Meal

The Prime Rib was featured so we each ordered it but with different sides. It was cooked to order (medium) and was tender with not a lot of fat. Our server was good and attentive. The atmosphere was pleasant but a little dated.

The used to be the best restaurant in the county, but it has gone downhill due to ownership changes over the years. You may get an excellent meal with very good service, but you may not. I'm waiting to see if it improves.

We decided at the last minute to try this as we had visited the winery next door earlier in the day and saw the sign for Prime Rib. They offered a seafood bisque as the soup of the day. It was amazing. The Prime Rib was also cooked exactly how I like it, and the portion was more than enough.... More

Horrible food, terrible service,uninviting atmosphere. 116.00$. That's how much my husband and I paid for burnt, inedible steak and drinks. The service was some of the worst I've ever had. Let alone the dingy 1970's decor. When I let the owner know very discreetly we were dissatisfied they could have cared less. My grandmother had salmon she couldn't even choke... More

Finding hair in my dinner sealed the fate of this establishment for me! What more can I say other than the obvious, which is I will neither return nor recommend this place to anyone.

We stopped here for lunch on the way home from our vacation in Pigeon Forge and Asheville. The waitress was very nice and gave us very good service. Our sandwiches and burgers were delicious, but the deserts were so yummy! I have never had anything like the Chocolate Heaven. It was wonderful!

1st time here. Wife had talapia. I had pasta/lobster and Alfredo sauce. French onion soup was excellent. Wait staff was very attentive but not over bearing. Easy to find right off I40

Don't do it! Go buy yourself something instead of wasting your money. Prime rib tasted like roast and chicken tasted like coal

We went to the Brass Lantern with friends from Europe. The side salads were fresh, and the grilled chicken salad was huge. However, the dressings were nothing special and the salad didn't even have croutons! The grilled fish was tasty, but not near worth the price. They do bring rolls before your meal arrives but they tasted like grocery store... More

So after reading the reviews.... we decided to give it a try since gearing there were new owners. We were created immediately.. very friendly and nice atmosphere. Only one table was filled. We're approached immediately by more friendly staff. Decent menu and just what I had read online. The couple I was with ordered Pork Chops well seasoned and cooked... More
