Description: Serve Simple Foods Whatever the specific restaurant concept, the ability to create menu items in a consistently excellent manner is directly related to ease of production and simplicity of presentation. Consistency at a high level is always more important than innovation. Use The Finest quality Ingredients There is no more essential factor in a successful menu program than the quality of ingredients used in food preparation. Starting with the best is the only possible way to end up with the best. Keep The Environment Clean, Organized and In Proper Working Order Concern for the guest means being attentive to all environmental details from maintenance of the physical plant to the personal grooming of each individual employee. Cleanliness and order are the keys to building guest confidence in the establishment. Make Memorable Moments It is the perfecting of all the little details in a restaurant that makes the guest's dining experience a memorable one. With every action, the appropriate question is: does this act show a commitment to excellence and respect for the patronage of the guest? Work As a Team Ease, efficiency and enjoyment of the restaurant experience, for both employees and guests, is directly related to the level of respect, support and cooperation among the staff. Any restaurant guest is everybody's guest; any restaurant responsibility is everybody's responsibility.

“Good food and beers, Great Atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

My husband, our two daughters (3 and 1) and I ate an early dinner here one evening on a recent trip to Gatlinburg.

We really enjoyed the selection of craft beers and the food was very good, too!

Between the two of us, we tried the Windy Gap Wheat (similar to Blue Moon), the summer seasonal Raspberry Wheat (traditional Raspberry Wheat beer - a little on the sweet side), and Thunder Road.

We had a great server! He was wonderful with our girls. Very friendly and attentive. He didn't seem to mind that we held up one of his tables for awhile to sit and play trivia.

We tried the soft pretzel appetizer. It came with a sweet/hot mustard and beer cheese dipping sauce. Both were very good. Our girls really enjoyed the pretzels. My husband ordered the marinated steak, med rare. It was cooked to perfection and well seasoned. I ordered the BBQ burger. It was an average burger. Meat was a little on the dry side. Our girls shared the kids chicken tenders. Between the two of them, they had a clean plate before we left. We all enjoyed the macaroni and cheese. Everyone around us appeared to have ordered chicken wings. We love wings, but decided against them because of our girls. We wanted an appetizer they could enjoy too. If we return, we will definitely try them.

The view of the mountains is so pretty. There didn't appear to be a table in the place where you wouldn't be able to see them. The upstairs is surrounded with very large windows.

I'm sure we will return to Gatlinburg in the future, and we will likely dine here again.

“good burger and reuben”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

Appetizer
Potato Skins chicken, cheese & bacon
Very good

Husband got the
Big City Reuben corned beef, pastrami, sauerkraut, grilled rye bread, swiss cheese
He didn't care for the sauerkraut, it is kind of "sweet" He also isn't a fan of pastrami.
He liked it OK, just wasn't a favorite for him.

I got
Ole’ Smoky Burger smoked cheddar cheese, bacon and bar-b-que sauce
Very good

We both got fries as our side
They were hot and tasty

Both our sandwiches arrived hot as well. That is a plus

We WILL go back the next time we are in Gatlinburg

“Excellent pizza and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

Very good pizza and service. Our waiter(can't remember his name - had only been working three weeks) was very helpful and knowledgable. Feed a family of 4 for $30 and that was with beer and appetizer. We will be going back.

“Had better”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013 via mobile

The restaurant looked interesting. Food was good, service was extremely slow! It was clean enough, it wasn't the weekend and thought service would be better
