I took my wife and kids here for lunch. We had so much fun and the food was delicious. The scenery was just perfect. I will be coming back to this place when I visit again.

We had a delicious lunch here! The service was excellent. The food was well prepared and served at the proper temperature. Their baked goods are delicious. Prices were fair for the quality of food. I would definitely return to this restaurant. We enjoyed dining on the patio.

We had breakfast in this quaint restaurant located in an area with cute shops all around. The service was fantastic with great southern hospitality. There was more than enough food served. We received it quickly and it exceeded our expectations. Small banana muffins are served prior to your meal. They are quite good. I had the vegetarian omelet. My husband... More

We are locals and just find ourselves at this place more than any other place. The food is excellent. The service is spectacular. And this place is priced very reasonable. The ranking of #1 true restaurant in pigeon forge is well deserved. Love this place! Don't miss this place. No hype just that good.

You know you're doing good at a restaurant when you like everything that you've been served! We started with the loaded baked potato chips- home made potato chips smothered in cheese, bacon, green onions, and sour cream, served with an avocado ranch dipping sauce, and we cleaned the plate of 'em. The complimentary bread is fresh, steaming, and delicious. The... More

This was recommended by the cashier at the Christmas Place store and I am glad she did! Although not the best meal ever, it was very good

One of the best restaurants in town and amazing service. The soups and fresh bread are amazing. Our waitress amber was very nice and the manager was great as well. We sat outside on the patio it was a little cold out so the manager brought a patio heater. The whole experience was amazing.

We are locals and eat here fairly often and on special occasions. The patio is the best place to eat when the weather is good. The pimento cheese hamburger is amazing and is a must try. We went there with my office and I ordered the buffalo chicken strips and they were some of the best I've had. Paul was... More
