What a wonderful place for dinner! The views were amazing and the four-course meal was delicious. We brought our own wine which was opened for us so we could enjoy it on the veranda before dinner. At $35 per person, this is a terrific value for such a lovely evening. We will definitely return......perhaps to the B&B, as well.

For a wonderful dining experience, the Buckhorn cannot be topped. A lovely Appalachian Inn located off a side road in Gatlinburg, the dining room has a serene ambience that immediately distresses. Our four-course meal started with a basil-dressed tomato Gouda tart, a blend of flavors that let each star, on a lovely fresh pastry. The bread this evening was a... More

We loved the view of the mountains from our table at the window. The dining room is very comfortable and nicely decorated and the tables are very nice with white tablecloths and china. The service is outstanding and the wait staff is very attentive. The food was ok...I don't mind a fixed menu and have found that it often provides... More

We made reservations for dinner here our last night in the Smokies. We did not stay at the inn, but dinner is open to the public. The menu is prixe fixed and you can view it online. Reservations are required. We had a fried green tomato with black pepper aioli for an appetizer, mixed greens, and our entree was cornmeal... More

Always been excellent service, very friendly. The dinner is perfect. We always go for dinner simply because the dinner at Buckhorn is unbeatable. One thing about the staff we have noticed is their longevity. The stuff is professional and the food couldn’t be better anywhere around.

5/30 Dinner: Basket of homemade bread was served right away. Our starter was a crab bisque, full of crab flavor and not too rich with minimal cream that did not compete with the crab, just enhanced it. Mixed green salad followed with top quality lettuce lightly coated with an herb dressing. The main course was pecan encrusted trout, cooked perfectly.... More

If you are looking for an elegant meal in Gatlinburg, this is the place. Way out of town, by itself in the hills, this location has a marvelous view and better food! But, it is not inexpensive. It shouldn't be as the food and setting are first class. Not a place for tourist families. Better for sophisticated couples or friends.

This is the best restaurant that I've been in. We dined with some friends and we all agreed. This is a keeper. There is NO menu. There is a meal for the evening. No beer or liquor. The meal for the evening is what it is ALL about. FANTASTIC
