“Great food at reasonable price”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2012

The restaurant was recommended by my hotel staff and I wasn't disappointed. I had some chicken and pasta with a salad. Food was good and service was great. Total bill with soft drink was around $25.00. I was happy and stuffed. There was a local band playing outside the front patio. Good fun.

“Worth a try if you are downtown!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2012

It doesn't look especially appealing but the food is good and the staff was friendly and courteous. We enjoyed our sandwiches and eyed the pizzas that were served at the next table. For a good lunch, I would recommend it-large portions and flavorful dishes. Enjoy the rocking chairs out in front after your meal!

“Looks are deceiving!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012 via mobile

I don't think we would have stopped here based on outside appearance but one of the locals recommended this place and it did not disappoint! The pizza is very good and is pretty darn close to NY pizza! The salads are good and fresh! The garlic rolls are AMAZING! Reasonably priced and good sized portions! You will leave full! We went in on a Monday night, which was very quiet and they have some TV's (flat screens) and we were able to watch Monday Night Football! Will come back for the pizza!

“simply the best”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

my wife and i go to gatlinburg about 4x a year. she would not miss the outlet malls and i wont miss this place. they now have two locations. yes, the service can be slow-we even walked out of the orig. location last time (they have a little terrace at that location) and walked to the new location to get the lunch size pizza. perfect size for 2. other patrons portions looked enormous. this is just my rating_ if you try this place and like the food half as much as i do, you'll be well satisfied

“Still the BEST”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

We have eaten here for over 15 years and never had a bad meal. The pizza is great and the pasta dishes are outstanding. It is worth the trip even if you just eat the garlic rolls and a salad. The garlic rolls are wonderful. Hope for another 15 years.
