I am in complete and utter dismay that this place is open. First thing in the morning I am going to call Tennessee's dept. of health and report this place. Spiders crawling in the filthy bathroom. Dust and dirt everywhere. Ripped and worn carpet. Old dirty furniture. The list goes on and on! I know the owner would not feed... More

You can't beat fat service unless you have fast service and phenomenal food, and this place has both. Every time my wife and I come to Gatlinburg we have a romantic dinner here. We will NOT go anywhere else!

They have the best garlic rolls and pizza in Gatlinburg. Fast service and you won't leave hungry. You might miss it because it is tucked back in a shopping plaza. But it is well worth the search. Service is excellent and friendly.

The pizza was very good! The special "highball" drinks, not so much. Service was great and gave us some good tips on sites to see while in town!
