The food was remarkable. Everything ordered was fresh and delicious. Service was fast and atmosphere was relaxed. The homemade bread brought to the table was delicious and they allow you to purchase on the way out. My kids loved their dishes and they are picky. I wish we found this place earlier in our trip instead of the last night.

4 instead of 5 because they had changed the shrimp and grits recipe to include celery, onions, carrots and peppers. It still had bacon and cheese and i just pushed over the new toppings and ate it anyway. My husband said his hamburger steak was really good. The service was quick and friendly. We'll try the lunch menu next time.

Excellent food and service. Chicken salad and loaded potato soup are our favorites! The home made bread is delicious. The staff is friendly.

We were there just last night. We were seated immediately. Staff were prompt and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious! My husband had the ribeye, which was cooked perfectly. I had the fried catfish and my son had the barbeque sandwich. Everything was yummy! Will definitely go back the next time we are in town!

We passed on this place s few times we were in the Gatlinburg area dispite the reviews being so good and finally tried it in February and love the place. Everything from the sandwiches to the pickles to the fresh cut fries and the homemade bread was excellent. They had this homemade cheese spread that we couldn't get enough of.... More

We had quite a bit of a wait, but we usually do at this restaurant. It was Spring Break week, and the area was very crowded. I ordered the garden panini, house salad, and had the coconut cake for dessert. The rest of our table ordered a variety of dishes: chicken tenders, steak sandwich, quiche, soup, fruit salad, pasta salad,... More

The potato soup and pimento cheese is outstanding!! I love eating here everytime I come to town. Just wish they would lower the price a little more, but the food is great!
