Called early morning and got available seating for that nights dinner. We arrived early and enjoyed the rocking chair Smokey Mountain views for the half hour before dinner. Seating is assigned with a name tag and you are expected to be seated at the 7:00 start. Ice water is ready at the table... read more

Found the Buckhorn Inn while checking out fine dining around Gatlinburg for our son's wedding dinner in October. It was a gem to find this place! We have been to Gatlinburg many times ( 3 this year alone) and never knew about this lovely place. Called for reservations prior to a trip with family in August. Dinner was great, everything...

We just returned from a week in the Smokies, and one of our best meals was the dinner we had at the Buckhorn Inn. What a delight! As a treat to my husband and myself, I made reservations for dinner at the Buckhorn. I'm sorry we haven't tried it before. I doubt that you would be disappointed with a meal... More

My husband and I ate here for our anniversary. We called several days ahead of time to get reservations, this is the only way you can eat here. The Inn is about 10 minutes outside of downtown Gatlinburg and is beautifully located hosting an amazing view of the mountains. The menu for the Inn is posted online about a week... More

We love the Buckhorn Inn. It's almost like a visit back home for us. We've stayed in many of the rooms, but this time rented one of the houses. It was roomy and private. We went with our adult children and they enjoyed it as much as we did. Breakfast is included and it is always the best breakfast you... More

This was our first experience with the Buckhorn Inn. I read the reviews on Tripadvisor and we decided to try them for a romantic dinner. Check their menu online to decide which day you would like to be there for dinner. The menu changes every day, and is served to everyone promptly at 7PM. Get there around 6:30 PM and... More

Hands down, the best meal I have ever had in my entire life. The grounds are beautiful. The meal is served in a timely manner. The staff are very friendly. We are excitedly waiting for the next time we can visit!

I had one of the best restaurant meals at the Buckhorn Inn. It was perfect. It is unusual in that there is only one fixed dinner menu with one seating at 7:00. The menu is posted online. You need reservations. The restaurant is located off the Glades. It is a simple but elegant restaurant with spectacular mountain views. I loved... More

We stayed at the Buckhorn Inn and had two dinners here. We entertained a guest the first night and they were able to meet our dietary needs by adjusting the entree for us. It was fabulous and and our guest loved it. The meals here are always of gourmet quality. Our second dinner there was for our 38th anniversary. The... More
