Dinner in Townsend

Wanted a hamburger and this place was recommended by desk clerk at motel...great choice. The hamburgers were hand pattied and very large. Only complaint was that you had to pay extra for fries..Most places include this side. Great service, lovely place to eat..enjoyed it.

We found this restaurant early one morning before embarking on a 8.5 mile hike in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I saw on the menu there were buttermilk, pecan or blueberry pancakes. I ordered a full stack of the blueberry and settled back to enjoy the steaming hot coffee, which was wonderful. My husband ordered the buttermilk stack and... More

The grouper sandwich is delicious and the portions are large. We were seated quickly and our server was friendly and efficient. We stop here every time we are in Townsend.

We stopped by for lunch - kept it simple by eating off the buffet. I normally don't like buffets but this one was actually decent. Under $20 for two, includes tax. The buffet selections change but while we were there they had a good variety. They had fried chicken, city ham, & meatloaf. I didn't eat any of these but... More

My friend and I were doing a guy's weekend of fishing in the Smoky National Park. We started our morning at Carriage House every morning we were there. We got a great breakfast that was good country cooking. This restaurant was part of the experience. Their omelets are excellent! I highly recommend the Farmer's Omelette. The Ham and Cheese was...

The biscuits are from powder and are hard, dry, brittle, and flavorless; the eggs are instant, grainy, and mealy; the French toast is likely microwaved from a frozen box, like Burger King but worse; and the bacon is greasy and limp. There are packaged snack cakes on the breakfast bar for crying out loud. I'd have paid double to have... More

The buffet was full of delicious food. Little red potatoes, greens, okra, Cole slaw - it was all good. Deserts were my favorite. Brownies were fantastic. The waitress was very friendly and helpful.

Huge plates of mediocre food. Definitely going for quantity over quality. I had fried trout that tasted like mud and he had fried chicken. They served him 2 halves of a chicken, heaps of mash potatoes and mac and cheese. Enough food for 3 people.
