“Great place to eat...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

THis is a great place to eat, espically with several people involved.... It is buffet style, the food is attractive, hot, appealing.. everyone can have something different to eat.. there is a good selection of food at breakfast, lunch and supper... we have eaten there several times.. the latest time in October 2012.

“central location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2012

Plenty to choose from the buffet and good salad bar. My son loves to help himself at the buffet. Restaurant is right in the middle of Gatlinburg

“Great tasting food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Everyone was very friendly and I wanted more than fast food. It was just as good as the meal That we had the previous night at a steak house at half the price.

“Unless you're deparate go elsewhere”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2012

The service was mediocre and the food was not good.

The location is good, right on the main street, a block or so from the chair lift. We visited around 8 or so in the evening. I should have known when we walked in and the place was almost deserted that we should run, but we didn't

The restaurant nothing spectacular at all, the service was alright, but not great. The waitress was pushing the buffet, which didn't look appealing, appetizers and desert.

My wife got a vegetable plate and I tried to go safe with a burger. She wasn't to happy with hers and mine tasted worse than a frozen burger from walmart. The fries tasted like frozen fries from walmart as well. We ate and booked it over to Karmlecorn instead of risking desert there.

All the choices in Gatlinburg and we had to chose this one. :(
