Very disappointed! Waited 20 mins and still didn't get a refill.. ordered a veggie stir fry because I'm a vegetarian and found pieces of chicken in it and when complained to manager he was rude and made us pay full price.. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND! And will not be returning!

Succinctly put, not good. Terribly limited menu, SLOW service, and the food was a real disappointment once it finally arrived. My advice to anyone local or just visiting would be to avoid this place. Waste of time and money.

Have been there about three times, the food was fair if you like fried food. After ordering the food was very slow in coming.

We are local and we have tried this restaurant about four times thinking we must be hitting it on a bad night or something, from the way other locals rave over it. My worst experience was the so-called chicken and dumplings, there was hardly any chicken to be found and the dumplings were lasagna noodles and it was bone dry.... More

We were off to the Smithville area for the day to visit the lake, and the Tennessee Tech Craft Center, so I looked up restaurants in the area for a nice lunch with my wife. I came across the White Possum Grille online and their web site and menu made it look inviting. Wrong. As we soon found out, there... More

Typical of small town "Seafood Restaurants". The average price per meal was $10 plus drinks, the "crab legs" were $20, the servers (teenage girls) had no idea what utensils went with seafood. The service is awful, the food is served cold, and late. (Noticed the locals got there food first). The menu has no drink selection, at lunch time they... More

This was one of the worst dining experiences I've had. First off, I must mention that I was in a party of 12 and it was a Friday. BUT, the service was awful, the food wasn't served at the same time and the orders were wrong, there was zero customization to the menu and the prices were incredibly for the... More

We always thoroughly enjoy our meal when we get to eat at the White Possum Grille. The food is so good that my mouth waters when I think of the beef teryaki I had the first time I was there. The menu is so packed with good meals, it will take quite a few visits before we get to try... More
