“Very Quaint & Cozy Place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

This was our second year to have dinner here. We really like the atmosphere in the very old building. Happen to have gotten the same waitress both times and she gave us very good service. If you are looking for an unusual place with a lot of history, try Greenbrier.

“Too many better places to eat”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Evidently not what it used to be. Extremely disappointed. Was planning on making this an event and convinced friends to join us. Service was at best fair. Thought the view with all the windows would be great, but could barely see through them because they were so dirty. Understandable as the wooden ledge on the outside (which would allow one to clean them) appeared to be rotten. Ordered prime rib medium, came out rare, however it was so long before the server came back around just kept it. Extremely overpriced. Would not have minded the pricing if it was what it once appeared to be. There are too many better places to eat in the area that are less expensive and offer better product and service.

“Hard to find, worth the trip!!!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Very secluded restaurant hidden in the foothills of Gatlinburg, TN. Recommended by a desk clerk in our hotel (Clarion Inn, Pigeon Forge) when I asked for the "best restaurant nobody ever heard of around here.' After learning that we were willing to drive to Gatlinburg, he suggested the Greenbriar. We went and are glad we did. Building is a log cabin constructed in the 1930's and you won't find it without GPS - its on a steep dead end road with nothing else around it. Menu was short but diversified - my wife ordered a 5 ounce filet and I ordered a Cajun Blackened Tillapia filet. Both were well prepared and tasty; but, I will admit that the blackened fish "lit me up" for a few hours - - it was good and spicy as it was supposed to be. Serving area was confined to glassed inn back porch of cabin building and quarters were tight. Our waitress was good albeit a little slow with sweet tea refills for one who was tackling such a spicy entrée.
Overall our experience was positive and we'll put the Greenbriar on our list of unique places to dine in the future.

“Cool atmosphere...poor food quality”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

We went to the Greenbriar because we had a $25 coupon that we obtained from restaurant.com, even though locals told us it wasn't worth it. The building is a cool, rustic cabin that sits on a wooded property. That was the only part we liked. The food was seriously overpriced for the quality of the food. From the French onion soup being bland, to the extremely dry chicken entree. May be an alright place for drinks and apps, but that's it.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2013

Husband had the trout and could have eaten two it was so good. I had the apple/walnut stuffed pork loin...what wonderful flavors together! This restaurant is off the beaten path and you'd probably never find it if you weren't lookin for it, but well with it!
