“Not really a tea room”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2013

This a "girl's place" with a menu that hasn't changed in 25 years. It has a nice atmosphere in a log cabin and the food is ok.

“Birthday Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

I treated my buddy for lunch to celebrate her 50th. The salad was nothing out of the ordinary, but the service was good, and the applecake was delicious. Rather small restaurant and the tables are fairly close together, making for a rather loud dining environment, but overall a nice lunch.

“Cozy atmosphere close to I75”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013 via mobile

Two friends and I enjoyed our lunch at the Apple Cake Tea Room. It is right off the interstate, but the atmosphere makes you feel like you are in a quiet, secluded log cabin in the Smokies. The Tea Room Medley was very good. We barely made it because they closed at 2:30, but we were glad we did!

“Always delicious!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My friends and I have made this quaint little restaurant a "must" stop on our way to Gatlinburg every fall. They never disappoint! The food was delicious, whether it was the the medley, open face reuben, quiche, or soup and salad. Our service was excellent, especially since the restaurant was full and there were 9 at our table. Our wait time was minimal. This is a cozy place with good food and a great staff!
