I am thoroughly disappointed that the Bonnie Kate didn’t even put an effort into keeping the theater. I know the digital system was expensive but there were grants available and local businesses were literally just throwing money at theaters so they could upgrade.

We did try everything to raise money to keep the theatre and there was nothing available to us. We purchased a movie theatre and had no intentions of ever using the space for anything else. We did have parties for teens for a while, but people were quick to judge and slow to come down and see what we were... More

Bonnie Kate is a Historic Theater in Down Town Elizabethton, TN. My family and I have enjoyed movies there for many years. Since the renovations it has become one of mine and my wife's favorite spots for our date night. The atmosphere is clean, comfortable and perhaps a bit upscale. Great place to get together with friends, dates, and co-workers.... More

This restaurant is going to be the best in this area. The owner has informed us that she is restoring the venue back to its original condition in the 1920's. The food is great and the atmosphere is very nice. I recommend this great place to everyone.

This please gets great reviews so I thought I would try I out when in the area. The place was quiet only two other tables occupied, so I expected the service to be prompt. The waitress was attentive, convinced me to add hash browns to my Eggs Benedict and I looked forward to my breakfast. The eggs were much softer... More

Our server Amanda was perfectly pleasant and the atmosphere was awesome. Wife ordered the grilled chicken platter which was excellent. Veggies were perfectly seasoned and portions were great. I ordered the Juicy Lucy which is one of the best burgers I've ever had! Bun was buttered and toasted and the meat was done to perfection as I specified. Will definitely... More

Driving through Elizabethton decided to have lunch. Located in the older (1926) section of Elizabethton we enjoyed a ham and cheese quiche with salad and a Greek quiche with tomato basil soup. Both were absolutely divine. Stop by if in the area--service polite and friendly and atmosphere pleasant. Enjoy the old times.

Wonderful dining experience. The Eggs Benni with crab cake was excellent. Being from New Orleans the seafood taste was right on. Looking forward to dining here on my next visit.

The owners reserved the entire restaurant just for the 2 of us when they were supposed to be closed that night. They went above and beyond our every expectation. Everything was served with a white linen cloth and such care. The chicken parmesan, house salad, garlic bread, white wine, and chocolate cake were to die for. They even put our... More
