Once in Newport we wanted to stop for dinner and got online for reccos. Ended up at Grill 73 -- an American Russian restaurant. We had potato piroschkes with homemade honey mustard sauce (wow!), I had cabbage rolls (chicken and rice with two mysterious and delicious sauces on top), M had a burger with fries that had some kind of...

I met my grown kids at the Grill 73 for lunch, as it is halfway between Nashville TN and Columbia SC, and had one of the most enjoyable experiences I've had in a while. The food was excellent. The owner/cook was extremely friendly and the menu though not vast had plenty of variety. This was my first experience eating Russian... More

Its a little off of the beaten path, but well worth it. Grill 73 is a small café with a toasty woodstove set into a river rock chimney, the décor was hand made by the Russian couple who own the restaurant...hand carved tables, door frames and walls; cozy, friendly and comfortable. The food is delicious, the spices are perfect. We... More

What a great little place to eat!! The menu is small but the flavor is big! My husband and I had an appetizer, two dinners, two drinks AND dessert- ALL for $36. The stroganoff and cabbage rolls were outstanding! I can't remember the name of the appetizer, but the crepe for dessert- mouthwatering!! Can't wait to go back and try... More

Tiny place with a small menu, but it's authentic. The owner is Russian and she makes her food from scratch. It's worth stopping by! Also, the river is across the street and there are picnic tables out there as well. Note: This restaurant is seasonal and closes over the winter.

I more often look for high end non franchise restaurants when I travel. I am in Newport for business. I have been here for four days. Grill 73 had great reviews and so I decided to give them a try. I was not let down. The food was excellent. I had chicken stuffed cabbage and borscht soup. They service was... More

Staying in Cosby, We had dinner here last week instead of going to Gatlingburg. Great cabbage rolls,borscht,and salad. All very tasty. They even grind their own chicken for the cabbage rolls! The meal was an excellent experience, including chatting with the former Russian circus performer/owner. We will be back next visit to the area.

I had the chicken saute. It was very good, served with pinto beans. Everything is homemade. Great flavor. Place isn't very big. My husband had a cheeseburger with everything and slaw with seasoned french fries. I am not sure what her seasoning but we are definitely glad we stopped. Very clean. Owner was pleasant.

Awesome food and super service. If in the area it's worth a stop in. Be sure to try the ice tea. I've tried nearly everything. It's all delicious.

I found out about this place through a magazine I picked up at the TN Welcome Center on I-40 a month or two back. They did a nice article about the owners, former Russian Circus people! They sounded delightful and the photos of the food sold me as well. I wasn't able to get there at first, so I sent... More
