Will review as lodge separately. Decor in historic, throw back dining room very inviting, but dining may have suffered from high expectations. Meals come with lodging which is good, but didn’t know we needed reservations for dinner. On check-in were asked when we wanted to...More

Stayed and ate in the dining room for two dinners and breakfasts. They are known for their trout and it was wonderfully cooked and not fishy at all. The pecan encrusted is their most popular option, but one special was drizzled with a spinach cream...More

The place has a wonderful breakfast and dinner. The dinners are family style so you can enjoy several sides.

The first night arriving Bryson City we ate at the Fryemont Inn. It is like you've stepped back in time. The floors are uneven because of the wood construction. The music will also take you back. Once you pick your entree then the sides are...More

Not sure. We’ve never been there on Thanksgiving, but the inn is probably our favorite place to eat.
