I enjoyed delicious salmon and salad. It was late so my baked potato was a bit dry. My husband ordered the daily menu selection of fish. He liked the fish but flaked the battered crust away. I loved their fried green tomatoes because they were cut in thick slices. Overall, we enjoyed our meal.

The all-you-can-eat offerings are a great deal. The fish is my favorite. Crispy batter and tender white fish. The menus is extensive so they'll have something for everyone.

This place has had staying power which is unusual in a town with no traffic light. Tourism is key. Food is fantastic sometimes and average the next. Good mountain trout.

We were getting ready to ride the Cherohala Skyway and decided to stop and try this place and we were not disappointed at all. Great service and food was pretty damn good too. Homemade blackberry cobbler was outstanding

We had been biking for several hours when we came across this restaurant. Noticed a lot of motorcycles out front so figured if the bikers thought it was good, then that many bikers can't be wrong. The place was full, (and not just with bikers, but locals alike.) The service was great and friendly. All you can eat menu that... More

We stopped by and it was OK, nothing special but clean and the service is fine. If in the area we might go back. They make every effort to please all so worth a return trip.

I've eaten at this restaurant for many years and am never disappointed. Their menu selection is as good as their Chef Gary. The food is very good and a good value. The waitresses are always helpful and friendly. They accommodate my wanting to eat my desert first and it's worth it too. Great atmosphere, good people, great prices, good food.

We arrived late in Tellico and after settling in at the Lodge, went out in search of dinner. We were the last customers in and out that evening. The waiter was very gracious and described and recommended menu choices. The food is was quite good, especially the soup and deep fried cheesecake. We had only had deep fried cheesecake once,...

Very helpful, friendly waitress. Good variety of menu choices. We had trout, which was well-prepared; however, our baked potato was over-done.

We stopped here after coming up over the Cherohala Skyway. They had some yummy soups on their menu - I had the green tomato and ham soup, while my DH had the baked potato soup. We both enjoyed our soups. Both soups had nice flavor, the green tomato and ham was said to be a bit spicy but I could... More
