A beautiful bar and an old fashioned dining room in a very old and historic hotel. Meals come with lodging, but walk-ins are welcome. Take a drink and sit on the huge porch that overlooks the Smoky Mountain National Park. A very wonderful experiemce. The food is exceptionally good and value priced.

The meals here, included with the price of the room, are enormous. Soup, salad, entree with THREE family-style sides, and dessert are all included if you are a guest at the inn. But even if you aren't, I'd recommend this restaurant. The dining room is rustic and beautiful, with exposed beams and creaking floors and a cool bar in back.... More

Staying in a nearby cabin, we were looking for a quiet, atmospheric spot for anniversary dinner. Read reviews of Fryemont and knew immediately had made the right choice. Many appealing entrees with soup, salad, AND choice of dessert all for one reasonable price. We will be back to stay hat the Inn for our next visit to BC.

Sweet wait staff, and good down-home food. The trout is fabulous. The breakfasts are awesome! Great Grits (a southern must) and wonderful biscuits. The test of a true cook!

What a very special Inn and dining experience2. We love the BLT soup, fresh, crisp salad with great blue cheese and then there is the entree. The many and varried Trout dishes and the Prime Rib are always a favorite for us. Save a little room for desert as the cobblers and pies are AMAZING ! We enjoy this Inn... More

Nice breakfast in a sweet old fashioned setting! Breakfast is included in the price of a room here. Great plates-I had the Omelette plate with potatoes and a biscuit. Comes with a drink as well. The service is outstanding! Old timey and sweet.

While staying at the Lodge, we ate in the dining room since the price was included in our room. The meal did not disappoint. Traditional meat or fish, and vegetable offering with a soup, salad and a dessert. I recommend dinner and breakfast, even better as part of the room price.

1930's Inn with rustic dining room. Great service and food. Quiet and leisurely meal. Dinner comes with soup of the day, salad, your choice of entree, 3 homestye vegtables of the day and choie of homenade dessert. Generous portions. Soup was a Cream of Broccolli that was not too thick and very tasty. I chose the roast beef, medium rare.... More
