Good variety

The variety of food cchoice on their lunch bbuffet was good. The small desert selection oof peach ccobbler was dried up. It wasn't a perfect lunch bbut I'll ggive it another try. Too, the waiter was great. The rest of the staff didn't seem to friendly.

We had the great pleasure of enjoying several catered dinners from Pratt's Barbeque during a recent trip to Kingsport. The food was a hit with all members of our family. Our favorites were the macaroni and cheese, sweet tea, classic barbeque and hamburgers, ribs, dressing, and so many more. The desserts were definitely something to look forward to as well.... More

Three out of four times is not good. thought I would give it another shot since last time. tried making reservations with manager and again messed it up. There is something wrong here. The service is hit or miss. And the food is also. My advice drive else where until they get these problems fixed.

We went here for dinner tonight and I was totally unimpressed. The desk clerk at our hotel highly recommended is place, claiming their BBQ was "really good". The restraunt was practically empty, which should've been our first clue. I ordered the pulled pork sandwich with a side of mac&cheese; my husband ordered a full rack of ribs with slaw and... More

This is a great place to get take out for family dinners. They have family packs or you can buy the meat by the pound. Great for working moms.

My family wanted to take me out for my birthday dinner and wanted to go somewhere different so I picked Pratt's. Oh my gosh!! It was great, why did I wait so long to go there for a meal. We went and had the Sunday Buffett and it was great! All members of the party had a great meal and... More

This time we made it in time for the breakfast buffet. They have a great selection on the buffet plus made to order omelets. Service was friendly and unhurried. We lingered at our table long after we had finished eating but no one tried to hustle us out the door as some places do. When you go carry a big... More

This was my second trip to Pratt's this time we brought some friends and they enjoyed the food and great prices just as much as we did. If you travel through make sure to put this on the list, and don't let the name fool you the fried catfish is good.
