Celebration Dinner

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... read more

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...

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.

My husband and I were very pleased with this little inn. The service was friendly and excellent, the food was exceptional and the wine list was sufficient. With tip our meal, including a bottle of average white Italian wine, came to $100.00. The chef came out and spoke to every table at the end of the meal. The meal was... More

My wife and I recently had dinner here for our anniversary, which makes two years in a row. We live near Chicago, but have ended up in Gatlinburg two years in a row and have made reservations at The Buckhorn Inn both times. We love the quaint, cozy setting of this place. The staff is excellent and the food is... More

What a beautiful inn! The interior is fancy, with a nice patio to view the mountains. There are about 12 tables, and we were greeted warmly, with the host also kind enough to cater to a few dietary restrictions. The bread was as good as we've ever had, the atmosphere incredible, and course upon course of tasty, creative treats. I... More

Delightful Inn! Wonderful 4 course meal beginning with cheddar chive soup, followed by salad with balsemtic vignette dressing, grilled chicken breast with apricot sauce and rice topped off by almond shortcake with berries! Very good meal in beautiful setting. We really enjoyed the meal, Inn and staff. We will return.

This is an exquisite restaurant. The staff really makes you feel welcome and are extremely attentive. We had a business dinner at the Buckhorn, and it was wonderful. The special was broiled catfish and a crabcake. Of course there was fresh Parisian bread, salad, and dessert to go along with the meal. Not to mention a few bottles of wine.... More
