We have been making Bennett's a stop every year we visit, either breakfast or dinner. Their BBQ is very good and tender. Sides are good as well. Be prepared to wait for seating during weekends busy times around peak dinner hours. Salad bar is quite good. Look for coupons in several local tourist discount books.

Service is a little slow but well worth the wait. Melt in your mouth ribs with a choice of BBQ sauces at your table

Good barbecue. Very consistent food quality. Service sometimes spotty. The brisket was very good. Only negative was mopping and sweeping floor by our table while eating.

i've been coming here for years and the ribs are so delicious. I always get the Smokehouse Combo. I don't even know why I look at the menu. I always get the same thing. Its a variety of ribs, chicken, brisket, pulled pork and sausage. Everything on one plate.

We ate at Bennett's for dinner for the first time during our last trip to Gatlinburg. We will definitely be returning. The food is fresh. The salad bar has a much larger selection than most. The chicken and pulled pork were delicious. The service was friendly and attentive. I ordered the smoked sausage which I wouldn't order again. It wasn't... More

My wife and I had lunch here one day during our honeymoon and it was pretty good. We both had the Combo plate which came of your choice of 3 meats. I had the ribs, brisket, and quarter chicken which was great. The brisket was the best. My wife had the same except instead of chicken she had the pulled... More

Great place to eat. Good food and excellent friendly service. Meals moderately priced. Great all-you-care-to-eat breakfast bar. Something on menu to satisfy the entire family.

This was our 4th vacation in the Smokies, each time a cabin near Gatlinburg, and every time we look forward to at least two or three meals at Bennett's, our favorite place anywhere for ribs. Their baby-back ribs are succulent, meaty, and seasoned with a BBQ sauce that's full-flavored, a bit spicy, and not too sweet. With the generous sides,... More
