Best restaurant in Gatlinburg!

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... read 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

My husband and I went to the Buckhorn Inn for my birthday and we had the prime rib with corn soup and cheesecake for dessert. They also provide homemade bread. You can go online to see what the dinner choices are for the week. They only serve one type of meal each day and you need to make reservations.

Having visited the Smokies in the fall and having a great meal at the Buckhorn Inn, we decided to try it again. As usual we got there at 6:30PM prior to dinner so we could sit on the porch, drink spice tea and enjoy the spectacular view of the mountains. As mentioned in an earlier review the spice tea and...

We made reservations but apparently they forgot that they took the reservation, the pushed in an extra small table into the dinning room to make a table for us, however, this made us right outside the kitchen door. Not a good experience at all.

We looked forward to dinner on our return visit to the Inn; the setting is lovely, a table by the window offers a delightful view. The fixed menu is a tradition; in retrospect we wished we had requested the vegetarian option, but we thought the pork loin would be tender & moist, which it was not, despite the sauce, which...

When I made the reservation, I mentioned that we were celebrating our daughter's graduation from college. We were greeted at the door and shown our table. There was celebration confetti and a "Congratulations!" card. What a nice touch. We were offered tea, spiced sweet tea, (YUM!) or soda. Wine is available by the glass or bottle, or you can bring...

Food was exceptional as was the service. They offer a specific menu that changes all the time. You sit down and are served your meal at the appointed time.
