Good Food And Service

Our waitress, Amanda, was so very nice and quick. I had the bbq grilled chicken breast and it was tender and moist. The side item called "deep fried corn" was the best corn on the cob I have had in a long time. My family also had the brisket, ribs and chicken and they where all very good, so... read more

Really good food at this location. We have enjoyed breakfast, lunch and dinner here. Breakfast buffet is fresh, well maintained and has a nice variety with great fruits, cereals, eggs, meats, etc. For lunch, the salad bar is awesome! Dinner portions are more than adequate, we usually always have a "to go" box for a late night snack. The Pit... More

We had ribs and barbecue. Great salad bar. Everything we had was just delicious. We all were stuffed with great food when we left. Great service. Slightly more in cost than we expected but worth it.

The food was very good, we had a mixed plate with different bar b que meats. Our server Lil John was always on top of everything we never had to ask for refills on our drinks and would come around to make sure everything was okay or if we needed anything. We had plenty to eat and with a picky... More

If you're looking for BBQ, this is the place to go! The food is great! We got the pulled pork shoulder dinner and the full rack of ribs dinner. Perfect flavor and the homemade BBQ sauce is good. Our server, Ashley, was friendly and made sure we had everything we needed throughout our meal.

My brother ate here while visiting Gatlinburg and recommend it to us. My family loved it ! The atmosphere was pleasant, the food was hot and delicious and the staff were very professional . As far as the cost, it was close to what I expected but more. I would eat here again.

We eat here every time we are in the area. Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge locations are both great. Love the pulled pork on the breakfast buffet.

Each time we are in Gatlinburg, we plan one night for ribs at Bennett's. It's just what we do. And we are not disappointed. The ribs are the best. Everything else is OK, but WE WANT RIBS! We'll be back.
