If you are in the Opryland area and want a good meal look no further. They have great catfish and the sides are delicious. You get complimentary corn fritters.

Family day out and we chose Caney Fork because of their claim on having the best ribs! Wow, they were right! We ordered multiple slabs & now we're thinking we should brought some home!! Don't miss an opportunity to stop in and try a rack for yourself!👍

The wait was crazy and as we were seated there was empty tables, so there was no need in the wait. The pond was dirty and there were cobwebs everywhere around the pond, ceiling, and rocks. These were not part of the scenery. The food itself was ok. I had the elk sliders, they were a little burnt on one... More

Ribs we're good so was the slaw. Corn fritters were yummy. Others at table said the catfish and chicken were excellent and okra was just okay. Forgot our waitresses name but she was full of southern hospitality! Made dinner a nice experience!

Stayed at Opryland for a week. Found this place just a short walk across the street. Very reasonable and great food. Our family ate meals here several times during our stay. The kids loved the place and the sweet tea. Best waitress in Nashville works at Caney Fork! Very good local fare and atmosphere.

We arrived at 7 p.m. on Saturday night. The wait was 1 to 1 1/2 hours wait which is to be expected this time of year near Opryland Hotel. There was plenty of parking so we pulled into a spot right away. When we put our name down they told us to feel free to walk around to check out... More

once was enough. Very good lunch in the bar area. Straw onion ring appetizer was good. Catfish was good but a little expensive for what you get. Staff attentive. House salad was good and fresh..good deal at 2.99. Close early in my opinion.

The sign says this restaurant was voted by locals as a place to go and it's easy to see why. The food prices are extremely reasonable and the decor is interesting--a fire pit, small pond, lots of taxidermy and so on. The pulled pork was a bit overcooked on my sandwich, but had good flavor, as did the barbecue sauce.... More

Decided to stop in to this joint as I am in the area for business. Was greeted promptly at the hostess stand and was seated at the bar (my request). The decor and overall atmosphere is what you would expect from pm a place that markets itself as serving wild game and camp style food. Bartender was very friendly and... More
