Nice view, average food, pricey

We visited here for our last dinner of a weekend getaway to the area. The view was beautiful, as was the atmosphere. The presentation of the food was nice, but the food was mediocre at best. The prices were too high for the quality of the food served.

Good food, nice atmosphere, good service, but had a ill-informed waitress. Make sure you ask about specials.

Food presentation was visually appealing and quality and taste were exceptional. Their use of fresh ingredients is obvious in the wonderful taste.

First time at Buckberry. The chef;s tasting menu was great. My husband and I really enjoyed our meal. He had the shrimp and I had the veal. Outstanding. We will certainly be back.

If you haven't been it's a must! Nothing in Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge holds a candle to it. The atmosphere and views are incredible. but the food will make you want to come back. We had the veal and shrimp and they were awesome. Not the biggest portions in the world but incredible flavor and presentation. If you want big... More

We had an extremely disappointing dinner at the Buckberry Creek Restaurant. The wait staff was very attentive and professional and the wine nice, but the food was one step up from inedible. Both the wine and food portions were minuscule. And when I say expensive, I mean in excess of $50 per person for food alone, expensive. I write this... More

We were so excited to eat dinner at a fine dining restaurant so we paid $200 for dinner for two (including tip) for a meal that was horrendous. Extremely small portions and terrible food. Granny's buffet at Dollywood is a far better choice than this. The starter course of "filet mignon" tacos were composed of ground beef cooked to oblivion... More

We apologize for disappointing you. The executive chef sincerely apologizes. He is addresses your comments, and is making changes to ensure that this example is not repeated, and every future guest has a good experience that they want to share. As a side note, no one left without paying. There are guests in-house at the hotel during the winter that... More

We were so desperate for a nice meal in the gatlinburg tourist pit. This is a lovely setting and service was great. Duck was cold but filet and ambiance made up for it. If you need a nice meal in Gatlinburg this seems to be your only choice and the prices reflect that they know this.

We are glad that you decided to join us and enjoyed the restaurant’s setting up on the mountain. The chef apologizes for your duck being cold. We certainly expect our staff to rectify such a situation should it occur. We hope you will visit us again. More

We stayed at the Lodge just before Thanksgiving and had a wonderful time. The restaurant was fantastic, with great food and wine. The list of wines by the glass was not long but very impressive, which is a sure sign of quality in my view. The food was delicious - we dined there twice and had both fish and meat,... More

This is one of our "must-go-to" restaurants any time we visit Gatlinburg and we've never been disappointed. The food is great, service is always perfect, and everyone makes you feel like family. There are great views of the mountains from the outside deck or even from a window seat inside. If you've not been here you must go. We'll be... More
